Burnished Walnut and Burgendy (Walnut first) are my go-to chino/casual shoes. Here you'll get answers ranging all over the spectrum except for black.

Anyone know anything about this Lubiam line, or even what line it is? Construction/quality?

Before any more answers to your question, can you share your secrets of time travel?

Nobody knows a source for single pleated pants?

I'm looking for a suede tassel loafer in the sub $400 range.  I've been looking at Meermin, Carmina, Sanders, and Loake to this point.  Which one of these brands would in general be a better fit for someone with a slightly wide forefoot but normal/narrow heel?  I've read the Carmina uetem last and the Loake loafer last described as narrow, so those are probably out.  I've read the Meermin is wide at the heel.  Haven't heard anything about the Sanders, though I have another shoe by sanders that is a nice fit, wider than my other shoes in the forefoot.  Anyone with experience with the Sanders Finchley?  

 

Any other recommendations?  Would rather not go up to Alden price territory, but if they would fit my foot better that would be ok?

Hi everyone,

I'm applying to medical school and was recently offered a couple of interviews. To prepare, I went shopping a few days ago and bought two suits, one navy and one charcoal. I also bought two pairs of shoes (one brown and one black), two shirts (one light blue and one white), a brown belt and a blue-and-silver striped tie.

From what I've read on here, it seems that I should wear black shoes with the charcoal suit and can wear either black or brown shoes with the navy one (though I'll probably go with brown more often - I think it looks really sharp).

I was wondering about the shirts, though, and what combinations would look best. I would imagine I can wear the white with either suit. Considering the blue-and-silver striped tie I'm planning on wearing, would the light blue also work equally well with either suit. Is there an ideal combination for each suit that would look best?

Thanks in advance for all your help!

You really need to try on the specific makes and models of the shoes you're considering, to determine which would be the best fit for you. I get how this may not be the answer you wanted, but it really is the only good answer to your question.

Even if one company's lasts, in general, tend to be a little wide in some ways, or a little narrow in others, shoe fit is just such an individual thing that relying on generalities of manufacturer style as even a rough guide to good fit is probably a mistake.

Thanks for the input, I think you're right but before I pay a bunch for international shipping and returns I'd at least like to narrow it down to the shoe or shoes more likely to fit.

You literally can't go wrong here. Both shirts will work fine with both suits.

The tie actually sounds suspect to me. Have a photo of it?

Yup, this is the tie on the light blue shirt I have:

I think a grenadine grossa (large weave) is slightly more versitile because the greater texture lends itself to a wider range of sport coat pairings. Both are great with suits.

In fact, I think a solid navy grossa is about the most versitile tie I own.

I consider the tie as a way of communicating something about yourself to someone else. Are you bold? Are you traditional? Reserved? What do you want to put across? In an interview, I would go for something a little bolder or brighter, personally. This tie tells me that you want to be a middle manager in a midwest paper company or an accountant. (both are fine, but I'm not sure if that's what you want to put across)
