I have a pair of navy slacks and a pair of Allen Edmonds: http://store.americanapparel.net/rsact400.html?cid=172 (Midnight Navy - they look darker in the picture though) http://www.shoes.com/productimages/s...aec1100305.jpg What kind of shirt and tie/sweater can I wear with these pants and shoes?

What do you think of pairing an odd jacket with a double/french cuff shirt? Is it doable?

I tried on the http://store.jilsander.com/navigatio.../U/season/main in the store in sz 8 and they fit fine, but I dont remember if they were US8 or UK8. I'm typically a US9 in sneakers and US8.5 in Alden true balance last. Anyone enlighten me with the sizing with Jil?

I don't understand why Ralph Lauren have marked some of their sweaters with "Custom fit". Here is two examples:
Custom-Fit Long-Sleeved Tee
Custom-Fit Long-Sleeved Polo
A Ralph Lauren sweater like this one, in small, fits me perfectly. Would these "custom fit" sweaters fit me? or too big?

Anyone know this? Really need to know before they fit before I buy them. Can't find them in my country, so can't try it. But I know small RL sweaters fits me.

I'm not living in the US, so I can't try these "custom fit" sweaters and I'm certainly that someone have help me.

From my personal experience (almost all my dress shirts are BB non-iron) that will work well. I also tend to turn my shirts inside out and also put some stain remover (e.g. Shout) on the collar to help with "ring around the collar". You can also try skipping step 3.

C&J Audley or C&J Belgrave?

step 2 depends on color and dirt level. Sometimes I wash medium/perm press. And I skip step 3. And I don't smooth out the wrinkles by hand, either, I just shake and let gravity do its thing. That said, I do press them briefly once damp.

It depends on what you're throwing together. At a casual wedding, I went with a khaki jacket, white FC shirt with bold purple box plaid, sage slacks, and tan shoes - and I felt fine.

That said, you can also go navy jacket, white FC shirt, medium denim, and brown shoes and be in good shape as well.

I only wear silk knots, though: anything else seems too dressy.

Quick advice: + Navy pocket square, red socks. For a party, not business environment. Any changes? What color shoes?
post #5590 of 33197
Looking to get some more pants for work(IT corp enviroment, business casual/casual). I'm interested in a slimmer fit and was looking at JCrew's slim fit chinos but was wondering if there were any other options?
post #5591 of 33197
I would vote for brown shoes. How red are the socks?

As red as red can get. Set your computer to 255,0,0 - and that's how red they are.

Pocket square is navy blue with dark green and red pattern on it.

I'm thinking navy belt and black shoes right now.... gotta head out of the house in a few minutes.

Are slim ties considered just as professional as standard width ties?
post #5595 of 33197
I'm interested in getting a tie with a contrasting blade, kind of like this, but in a more handsome pattern


Does anyone know what words I should search for? Also, can any recommend a maker? The one above is by Pierrepont Hicks, but I'm not terribly crazy about their fabrics or patterns.
