Is this the shoe you're talking about?

Edit: By the way, post a link and picture(s) in your first post asking about an item if you have a specific one in mind. It will lead to quicker and more helpful responses.

Do you have a credit card? Buy all of the suits early in the billing cycle. Keep the one you want, send the rest back. You should never have to shell out actual cash for the suits you returned.

Is this tie worth 35 bucks?

I'm looking to build a semi lean collection, so something say...less than 10 ties. 



 



If not, can somebody steer me in the right direction. At what price point is the sweet spot to pay per tie? 



Don't know about the quality of this one, but if you're aiming for less than 10 ties, I would definitely not choose this design. I'd start with a few solid-colored grenadines, one or two knit ties, some classic reps and a few small printed florals.

Dillard's.

Get the HYs. Have your tailor trim off any unwanted bagginess.

Thank you for all of the responses. I do have a credit card so buying a couple sizes from Suitsupply is possible since I will never personally be out the cash. Can I get a decent suit at Dillards? Or should that be a last resort? Also, what is a good place to get my measurements done and to have tailored in my area? Should I find a local place or will a chain store also provide that service even if I do not buy from them?

 

Thanks again!

What are the collective thoughts on corduroy trousers? I really do not like chinos (really do not like), I have my share of well maintained jeans, but would like to get some options for dress-down, business (office) casual. I am looking at the BB Clark fit corduroy; any general opinions of comments specific to the BB's?

I am open to any other recommendation, please? (price is not a significant concern)...Thanks, jtb

I don't mind cords at all. I own two pairs that I wear in the fall and will wear desert boots with them. It's nice for kicking around on the weekends but I wouldn't wear them to my office even though we're business casual.

It's probably office acceptable but it feels too casual to me.

Is the Brooks Brothers non-iron button down still an oxford cloth?

Sounds obvious, but depends on whether it is one of their oxfords or not... It will say oxford if it is oxford.

I wouldn't have suggested it otherwise. They also have tailors. smile.gif

Bought my first pair of AEs (Mactavishes) about 3 months ago. Granted I wear them 5 days per week (to work) but I am suprised to see that the rubber part of the heel is already peeling away from the rest of the heel. AE told me to send them (using supplied UPS label) for inspection. The quick question is will I screw up my recrafting options if i take these to a local shop for repair? Should I just gorilla glue them? I hate to do that. I love these shoes but it seems a shame to start rigging things up this soon. What would you do?

You need to stop wearing them five times a week.

Agreed. I used some of this goop to keep the rubber part of a combination heel where it should be after it fell off (of some shell cordovan shoes with JR soles); as long as it doesn't do anything to the welt, AE should be fine with a dab to keep the heel on... but the real problem is wearing the same pair of shoes five days in a row for months at a time.

Two pairs of shoes each worn every other day will last much longer than buying a pair of shoes and buying another pair when the first wears out. Get a rotation going.
