Thank you so much. Penny loafers seem like a good choice for me although I am not used to it. If I have to choose a slip on or loafer shoes, I may want to try something like these "lazy man shoes without brogue". I want the shoes cover my foot more.

 

 

 

 

Just try, then decide after because I still think a traditional oxford is more traditional and valuable or consider a loafer as your recommendation.

 

If I understand the classic menswear hierarchy of formality, a balmoral is more formal than a blucher; less detailing is more formal then less. So, a wholecut with no gingerbread is more formal than a heavily brogued wingtip, and so on.

Your description of your business environment and that you're not wearing a suit leads me to believe it's a less formal environment, but that's only an impression based on slight information.

If your heart is set on a laced shoe, a brogued blucher would seem to me more suitable.

 

Perhaps a monkstrap would straddle the line between a shoe that's easier to put on and take off while still covering more of the foot. They are less well known amongst the general populace, and might be seen as a more trendy option.

Hi there. I'm looking for some loafers under $200. What do you guys think of these Bruno Magli loafers? I realize that Bruno Magli doesn't get much love here, but I don't think I can find anything else in that style and for under $200 quite that easily.

Black or nearly-black-they-are-so-dark-brown loafers are the answer to a question no one needs to ask

Question on cuff and inseam length:

 

 

I believe i'm doing the math right but hopefully someone can clarify (a tailor possibly?)

 

 

I like to have a no break with a 28" inseam on a 10-10.5" front rise.  I like to have a 1.75" cuff.

 

If this is the case, what is the proper inseam length that I would need in order to achieve the above.

 

 

Thank you!

The inseam is what it is. If you are specifying a 28" you should get a 28" inseam. The rise or cuff height will not influence this. Whether or not you will get any break will depend on the shoes you are wearing and your body.

Sorry let me clarify what I meant.  

 

I like to have a 1.75" cuff with an inseam of 28".  Does that mean I need to have AT LEAST 28" + 3.5" (1.75 X 2) = 31.5"   In order to achieve this?

You'd need at least 32" because you still need at least 0.5" of hem to turn under.

Does anyone know why linen feels itchy on my skin? I just purchased my second linen piece of clothing, which is a 100% Uniqlo linen shirt, the first one being a cotton/linen blend trousers, which also was itchy. Am I allergic to linen?

Thank you.  I thought the same but was hoping I was wrong.

The important phrase in dead Angle's reply is "at least". While 32" will do it, try to get a 33" or 34" length.  This will allow for any lengthening that may be needed in the future - shrinkage or change in how long you want the trousers to be.

I'm not sure where the heck to ask this...so I guess I'll try here as well (I do hope I'm not breaking any of the rules that I didn't bother to read a few years ago. lol)....

 

I'm taking my 8 year old daughter to the closing night of an opera in Rome. I thought it might be neat to get her a corsage and perhaps something for my lapel...but... are such things "normal" & "acceptable" at an opera? I can't say that I remember ever seeing it before...but then again, I haven't particularly looked for it either...

 

Thanks in advance....

It is possible you are allergic to linen. It is more likely that you are sensitive to the fact that linen is harder than cotton and depending on the weaver some linen has slubs.

it is also possible that you are allergic to ironing.

post #32924 of 33197

But seriously...if you didn't wash it before wearing, it's also likely to have been starched/treated quite heavily by the manufacturer, to keep it looking crisp and fresh on the hanger.  You're more likely irritated by that.

Is it good to buy leather sole shoes to use for outside casual ocasions (just walking, etc)? I am thinking to put toppies on the leather soles, or I will ruin them quick in the rain, etc?

 

Thinking about this particular shoe:
