Rogues Gallery has seer sucker suit seperates in red and blue. The size small fits me like a 36. You could probably buy it and have it altered to fit you like a 34.

What is more formal (i.e. apropriate for wearing with a city suit) - a full brogue (wingtip) balmoral or a half brogue (Captoe with medallion) balmoral?

The closer the shoes to plain captoes, the more formal they appear. Hence half brogue is more formal than full brogue.

My opinion--no. Too hipster for me. Then again, I am on the conservative side of things... I am one of those people who would never wear a tie with jeans. I think this is more of an issue with whether or not this kind of look would fit into your personal style.

28 year college student-Alden Indy 403s or Alden Longwing bluchers? Plus which would be more versatile? I want both but can only get one.

Hi, I'm crossing over from SW&D in hopes that you guys know something about banded collar button downs? I'm looking for any brands/webshops that might have slim fitting banded collar dress or casual shirts. Or perhaps an online MTM shop that does these? Thanks

jrd617 that's a great look if you can pull it off, casual and masculine. but then the supermodel bod in the photo could pull anything off

I want both but can only get one.

These are two very different kind of shoes - or to be more precise, one is a boot and one a shoe. For versatility, the longwing would have to win because you can wear it with a suit or with jeans. If you don't wear a suit so much (or at all), the Indys would probably be better especially if you are in a colder climate. If you plan to wear them only casually, you probably don't want to be known as the guy in the wingtips all the time.

I agree with this. I'm 37 and I wear boots much less frequently than wingtips. But as a college student, you should go with the Indys. Much more appropriate with jeans and khakis and all that.

That's a new-model mainline Zegna. $650 is cheap compared to retail, but you could probably do better. More importantly, what do you need a black suit for?

i was always told you should have a black suit and i no longer have one is this adage incorrect

Pull the tag out of the pocket. Under FIT it should say one of Rom aka ROMA MIL aka Milano (I'm too lazy to check but I think it's MIL) TRL something like for traveller. The label will also list fabric makeup. Drop. Does it fit you? Most people here don't like black suits. Not a great choice for your first suit.
