That's irreparable damage, those shoes are done. Stay far, far away.

Two questions- about this jacket

1. I work in a fairly casual setting, button-down w/ chinos with no tie. I'm almost sure that a jacket like this would be no problem in my current work office but i was wondering if it would still be considered appropriate in a less casual setting as well. (would you wear this with a dress shirt & tie? with a blazer?)

 

2. Do you guys have any alternative options to this jacket, looking for something under 400, i got excited when looking but then realized that the the price listed was for english pounds rather than euros...

That jacket looks like casual outerwear to me. If you're wanting to wear a tie I'd stick with a more traditional navy sportcoat/blazer.

Something elegant but not too high class?

Agreed. It looks like a shacket.

The thing is my current boss doesn't wear a jacket or blazer and no tie either. So if i were to wear a blazer i feel like I'd be overdressed. Since I'm looking to switch to a different job by next year id like to buy something i could wear with a more business casual attire.

Shacket is not going to work. Maybe you should look into a cardigan sweater.

I think a tie and sweater is a good subtle combination that would work better than a blazer if you're looking to step it up a little but not too much compared to the higher-ups.

I will try find a suitable grey tie on my way home and post a burnt orange vs grey pictures.

Probably means more pocket squares required!


I would just wear a solid navy tie. What is your role in this wedding? Dress code?

I'm just a guest. It's small 40 in total and the groom and men are wearing morning suits with top hats albeit hired.
Navy doesn't really work as the suit is past navy on the way to blue.
I picked up a grey/ silver weave today which might even trump the floral...

Burgundy?

I have a burgundy tie but will be wearing that with navy suit on Sunday.

I'm in a very similar situation to the original question-er (semi-casual work place, I like dressing a notch more formal than my immediate boss) and wholly agree with this advice.

 

I have a very basic shirt collection, a number of v-neck sweaters and cardigans in staple colors (navy, grey, charcoal, hunter green, tan). By adding a decent size collection of ties there are a whole load of combinations to keep things interesting.

A good quality zip neck sweater can work well too.
