That outfit sounds a bit over the top for an evening function in the city (London). White trousers, suede double monks and a pocket square definitely combine to signal 'dandy'. Most people will probably come from the office in a suit and lose the tie somewhere along the way.

I don't know what else you have in your wardrobe. I'd either:

a) Swap the trousers and shoes out for something more classic (Oxford shoes, tan or grey trousers). You'll be well dressed but the right side of dandy.
b) Drop the tie and PS, and accept it's a bit louche but for you to judge if this is in keeping with the crowd and how you want to be judged

The only caveat - you mention this is central. There is quite a different feel between different areas of London which might be defined as central. The precise area, and your knowledge of the hosts, should inform your decision on what to wear.

Thanks, SimonC. Anyone have an opinion? The reason why I was thinking the brown might be too long is because you can kind of see that it starts to cover the very bottom of my palm.

Since the Alden thread seems to have become more of a mutual admiration society than a source of information, I thought I'd throw it out here: does anyone, anywhere sell a new pair of shell Alden PTBs in any brown color at this point?

My first impression was the brown was better and the blue slightly too long. I like my shirts the length that your brown one is though and it may be considered too short. That being said, the difference between the two is quite slight.

Thanks, facet. Did you mean it the other way around, though? The blue actually has a smaller cuff diameter than the brown.  And you're right, they are very similar... this is just my OCD kicking in. =(

What's the deal with Trafalgar belts? Any specific quality issues to look out for? I see some selling brand new for less than $30, and others for over $75.

Hi,

 

I just bought a nice RTW black cashmere pea coat. I would like it tailored slightly to fit me (I'm quite short... so the sleeves are too long etc).

 

Could somebody recommend a good tailor in London that could do this? Or provide tips for finding one? Thank you!!

Most of this is still valid:

wrong forum sorry

Quick question - does the brick red rubber sole on the Sanders Harry chukka preclude it from working well with grey flannels, specifically this pair of cotton flannels from Charles Tyrwhitt?

I prefer my Trafalgar belt over my Allen Edmonds one. It seems to be holding up better.

Where to buy dress socks with small motifs? Too many funky socks out there. That's all I am seeing or plain socks. What happened to small motifs?

Gents, by how much would say these trousers are too short? I want to sit perfectly without a break and am wondering if it is possible for a tailor to have them lengthened a bit. Also, the trousers are a little tight in the waist and thigh and I do stand to lose some weight in the coming months, will this affect how the trousers sit? Thank you.

Probably hit and miss. I bought a pair for $30 and the finish started wearing out immediately. I ended up chucking it after a year.
