I'm going to buy some Alden Indy 403's this week. Should I buy directly from Alden or from Epaulet? They both have free shipping and there is no tax from Alden, not sure about Epaulet. Both are $435.00 and seem to have my size. Please let me know what your think.

Should this number vary with different shoes? Chucks, boots, anything?

This is going to vary quite a bit depending on the last, type of shoe and personal preference, there is no science.

Order from Epaulet because they are cool people.

If this were the case, why would insole measurements be useful? There must be some range that is considered safe., like +.3-.7 or something

Insole measurements are not useful at all. Where did you hear this?

+1

The width at the widest point could be vaguely useful, at least if it's considerably larger or smaller than any of your other shoes, but you really can't tell anything from the length.

What are the thoughts on wearing a navy blazer, without brass buttons, with a pair of dark denim? I have a navy blazer that I would like to wear it with a nice white shirt and v neck. Will this work with dark denim or forget it?

This can be a good look of you don't mind the Jeremy Clarkson comparisons. Just make sure the colours of your blazer and jeans aren't too close you need a bit of contrast. Enhance the contrast with burgundy belt and shoes. No tie.

Ok, My jeans are a real deep dark blue. Is this the contrast your talking about? They aren't a "medium" wash.

I'm interested in getting a wheat/ flax colored cardigan, but haven't been able to find any. Anyone have a recommendation on where I can get such an item?

Basically something in this color

346 is Brooks Brothers' outlet line, which is to say it is lower priced that the usual BB stuff. If you don't have an outlet near you, try ebay or contact someone that has an outlet near them. As for a sweater that is similar in color but not made by BB, I've got no ideas.

Can't really say but I'm on about the contrast between the jeans and the blazer. It will look crap if they are very close in colour but if your blazer is dark navy and your jeans a few shades lighter then it will look better. Pics would help If you want a better critique.

I work in a business casual environment. I have a job interview at the end of a normal workday for a higher position in my current department. The interview will take place in our meeting room about 30 feet from my desk.

So question is, should I bring a suit to work and change into it right before the interview? I already outdress everyone in my department with my oxfords-trousers-OCBD-sweater combo I usually wear, so coming to work in a suit would draw excessive amounts of attention. What should I do? Just throw a tie into the usual combo or throw on a sport coat right before the interview?
