Anyone know what designer made Seth Meyers tuxedo on the Emmy's?

Is wool in twill considered conservative? ie. in comparison with herringbone, hopsack. Presumably sharkskin is more conservative.

post #28533 of 32778

Are we talking about a plain worsted that happens to be in a twill weave (as many conservative-to-the-bone worsteds are) or some kind of cloth with a clearly visible twill weave?

 

I'd say a clearly visible twill would be... weird. I've never seen a really pronounced one in a suiting weight.

 

But a plain worsted in a twill is more conservative than a sharkskin, because it's plainer.

I meant this: http://www.dugdalebros.com/online-shop/english-and-town-classics-bunch-134/9462/

 

Which I thought was quite conservative, but wasn't sure. Not sure how it ranks against sharksin and say birdseye.

post #28535 of 32778

More conservative. Sharkskin and birdseye are semi-solids, that's a solid.

He's debating whether or not to buy the shoes, not the other stuff. I presume he already owns the suit and the black jeans mentioned, so telling him that, 'yeah, they would go great with this other thing you don't own', while true, is beside the point and not really useful. My point is that the suit he owns is likely a fairly formal one- and given the black jeans, it's probably a good bet that the suit is black as well, making those shoes a doubly bad idea.

About to grab a pair of Carmina 80105 on the Simpson last. I typically wear all of my pants pretty fitted and the leg openings are 12.5" wide. They just fit over my boots but I am concerned that they won't overlap the Carminas naturally like they do my boots, and thus bunch up. Does anyone have any idea what the narrowest leg opening is that I could pull off with these shoes? Are there any lasts or brands that are more suited to a fitted pant?

 

Thanks!

I'm planning to buy my next pair of shoes in brown. Should i get semi-brogue with medallion or full-brogue wingtip?

I really can't decide.
post #28539 of 32778
Depends on their intended usage. For me a full brogue is more versatile as you can wear it casually, too, unlike a cap toe.

What the heck are these called?

How about austerity brogues? I personally love the look.

Austerity brogues are far more elegant.

Thanks for the input, but i would aim towards both business and casual wears. Austerity brogues is way too elegant and I might need to stretch my budget for them.

For more info, I'm a fresh graduate getting a job soon. I already own 2 oxford captoe; in black(Loake) and dark brown(Meermin).

Since you're wanting to wear both in business and casual settings, I would definitely go with the long wing.
