Hi, I ordered these Donald J Pliner shoes with chunky lug sole.  When i got them I noticed some of the stitching is exposed between the lugs.  is this normal for a lug sole shoe?  Here's a pic:

I'm going into a corporate office in 2 weeks. Computer Industry/Software Engineer. Business casual. Tie and coat optional, but I want to.

Edit: also want a slim-skinny fit.

I bought a silk knit dotted tie and wool tie from the Tie Bar both 2 inches. I have a skinny tie bar ~1 inch.

I have johnston and murphy wingtips. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0075H8QFW/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Budget ~$300-400 for 2-piece.

First suit.

Can't decide between charcoal gray and dark navy.

Can't decide between J Crew or Men's Wearhouse.

 

Any suggestions if I should get from somewhere else?

 

In the Los Angeles, CA area.

You cant go wrong with either color but my pick would be charcoal.  If your budget is tops 400 you probably can't get Jcrew, as they run about 650 for the wool ones.  Your best bet might be JCrew factory Thomson suiting.  The quality is not quite as good as Ludlow but for the money it's considered good value.

Hi all

Thanks for any help.

Hi how do you think this jacket fits?

Both will be fine after minor alterations.

Folks, how do you list your B&S listings in your posts (e.g. as Ich_Dien has in the one right above mine)?

Probably an easy fix, but I don't like how you can't see your shirt sleeves in the pictures you post.

In the upper right corner of the page you can see your user name. Mouse over that and click on "EDIT MY SIGNATURE" There are three drop downs at the bottom of your page. You're supposed to be able to link things there.

I'm going to pick up just the italian worsted wool charcoal suit pants. I'll save the jacket for another time.

So you reccomend I just get the sleeves shortened and then I will have a well fitting jacket? Thanks

Not a PI, but an undergrad researcher (author on the poster)  in the School of Medicine's Dept. of Biomedical Sciences 


Will be presented at the University-wide Undergraduate research presentation/symposium on a weekday. Undergrads stand in front of the poster and look pretty and answer questions when asked, while other students and faculty members walk around. Not a competitive environment

 

Didn't want to embed as I posted this pic already but this look is what I was thinking of wearing (OCBD shirt, just not buttoned down in the pic)

Not necessarily, but that is one thing I noticed. It's hard to tell from just that perspective too. The arms may need some slimming too.

@WeekndOrNah I would say, go with khakis and a dress shirt and no tie. You will probably still be the best dressed in the room. Biologists pride themselves in being able to wear whatever they want. Usually the sloppiest dresser is the smartest guy in the room.

Sorry about the background but what do you think to the fit of this shirt I know it needs a good ironing
