Should I size up one in the sleeve length? Brooks ESF shirt. Plan on moving cuff button over to make it fit more snug. Last photo is of unbuttoned cuff.

If you plan to wear the shirt with a suit/sports coat, try it on and see the sleeve length with one on.

About to buy herring's version of the barker eppings. The color is said to be "conker calf" although they are supposed to be the same as the barker epping they look darker in pictures on their site.

In any case, any advice on which color belt to go for? Is walnut close enough?

What suit do you think i can pull this combo with. Job not strict on suit dress code. Haven't thought about what would match with red shoes

I don't think those shoes work that great with suits, maybe a tweed or corduroy suit because they're pretty substantial brogues and they're lighter coloured. That being said, swap out the laces for some burgundy/ dark brown ones and IMO they're great for casual stuff : jeans, cords, flannels, tweed sportcoat.

For suits, brown, black or oxblood/cordovan/burgundy oxfords and sleek wingtips are best. What colour suits do you have?

Thanks for the tips
I have solid navy blue, med blue and med grey suit. Then some charcoal pattern suit and a couple pinstripe suits in grey and navy. Best way to find out is to try out with some suits.

Best choice for all those suits would be a dark brown punched cap oxford , like this :

I have these that i was planning on using for the most part. I have to wear a suit once a week at work so i wont be wearing them consecutive days. I just joined the forum and am learning lot. I also like to have some fun and personality while still looking fairly proper. Jacket in pic is very short I exchanged that jacket and got a 38r.

I'm probably a little too hung up on this, but is it kosher to wear dark brown shoes and leathers in the summer? In previous years I've always switched to tan, walnut and such shades when it gets hot out (enough to go without a jacket; has always been my rule anyway). 

 

However, this year I feel the need to dress more conservatively (for the first time really) - partly professional though not strictly; probably because the older I get the more conservative I seem to dress anyhow. I still wear lighter pastel shirting in linen and seersucker and the like, and lighter colored cotton or linen trousers, and after holding onto the brown shoes all the way up until now I don't think it looks off. Tan just seems a little too loud or "look at my shoes" to me, and I don't like the shoes to be the focus of my fits.

 

Anyone wear dark brown shoes year round? I'm certainly holding on to all of the tan in my collection, just in case...

Yep, nothing wrong with dark brown shoes year round. I don't have much in the way of tan, but my lighter loafers pretty much only see spring/summer wear.

Helmut Lang shirt... Any advise on sizing? I am under the impression it fits a bit large, am I right? 

post #30944 of 33197

I was looking at adding a stylish lapel pin or flower with a jacket I got recently as it was modeled with one and it looked nice.

 

I am just wondering what are the rules, are you not supposed to wear certain things while wearing one, what are you supposed to match it with if anything etc?  Whats the down low on lapel pin fashion lol
