Ties are pretty easy to find rather cheap. Toss them on the sales forum & see how it goes. You can always drop price or remove them for sale should things not go as desired.

I like your new tie, but this is a little safer. Also, for what sort of job are you applying? If you're trying to be an ibanker, the new tie could work. If you're trying to be an actuary, both outfits might be a bit too flashy.

Thanks for your reply! Yes I do like my new tie I've received a lot of compliments from people on it. The job I'm going for is a software sales position selling telematics.

I bought a solid navy Saks Fifth branded Samuelsohn suit from the store's recent sale. I'm happy with it overall but I have one big concern.

 

It said on the inside label it is made from S.130's wool. From what I've read the higher the count the more delicate a garment is.

 

I don't want to make a major investment in an item such as a Samuelsohn suit and only be able to wear it sparingly at most.

 

Is this a major concern or are my fears blown out of proportion?

This is weird. I wore this (below) and I got a few compliments but not that many. It's a Gucci tie which I think is pretty sweet:



But then I change the tie to this (below) and I kid you not that today in the space of a few hours 5 people came upto me saying how sharp I look. I only changed the tie. The tie is a £12 from a high street retailer in the UK!



Can anyone tell me why they think this has happened? What is it with the 2nd pic that makes it so much better than the first one? I hope you get what I mean!

I know this is weird I'm just befuzzled by today's events. I swear I'm not making this up.

The darker colour works better for your face and with the white shirt and blue suit IMO.

The second tie is just a more classic better looking tie IMO. Everything that looks good doesn't have to be from a fancy big name brand. The opposite can also be true, not everything from a fancy big name brand will look good either.

Thanks for that insight! I think your right. So do you think I should stick to darker ties in the future? Thanks smile.gif

Yeah you are right. When I first brought the Gucci tie I thought it looked a bit trendy but not too trendy I now think it maybe slightly too eccentric. The navy tie is now my new favourite tie. It's amazing what a difference a tie can make isn't it? That point has been brought home to me today!

Guys what do you think about these penny loafers? Would they used for office with jeans? Is the color versatile?

 

These exact ones are 150euro, good year welted.

Too chiseled and light in color for me. Not as versatile as a mid/dark brown

Hmm but I am not going with shorts. It's dark jeans + shirt. I thought penny loafers are pretty casual or?

Too much contrast with dark jeans and tan loafers.

Hi, I bought a Boglioli blazer that came with the cuffs stitched and separate buttons. The retailed version has non-functioning cuffs. I'm considering either sewing the buttons on myself skipping the button holes, or letting a tailor finish the cuffs with good machine stitched button holes. My preference is DIY as it's both fun and money saving assuming I can do it well. Otherwise how much will it cost per button for a reliable tailor in manhattan? Any recommendations?

Thanks!
