Fashion gods: Towards the end of January, I'd like to wear a grey Hickey Freeman suit to an interview. Total n00b question, but would the above suit be acceptable? I want to be certain that (a) it's an appropriate color for the month/occasion, and (b) I don't look like a total asshole applying for my first lowly teaching job in too nice of a suit. (I paid ten bucks at Goodwill, but according to my, uh, grandfather's tailor, it's ridiculously nice and apparently pretty new). Just don't want to make the wrong impression either way. Thanks.

it doesn't look overly flashy. Just wear a white shirt with a conservative tie and you should be fine. Nice buy

okay - so no one answered my question in the other AE threads. I'm looking to get the Park Aves. I generally wear a 10 D (sometimes can be snug). I bought a pair of AE's on ebay but it didn't list the model. I got it for it's color/looks. They were listed as 10D's and fit pretty well.


As for the Park Aves - I've read that the last is pretty slim. Should I get 9E's? 9EE's? My foot is 4" at its widest point

Is there a Nordstrom in your area? They often carry Allen-Edmonds. You could try some on there.

If you'd rather take a gamble on some untried shoes, then I'd stick with a size you know that fits, even if it's a different last. If the PAs are snug, you can always take them to a shoe repair shop and have them stretched a bit.

Totally agree.

Try Nordstrom Rack or Loehmans

Woo! Thanks so much.... That's great news for me. (No answer to your shoe question, but from someone trying on a lot of different used AEs lately, I'll add a big +1 to trying on the exact model from a local store first.)

So a coat that has all these characteristics, but is knee length instead of calf length, isn't an Ulster coat?
  • Belted back
  • Patch pockets
  • Military collar
  • Inverse pleat on rear back
  • Buttoned vent
  • Turn back cuffs

I would suggest you to ask those from the london lounge, especially a member by the name alden.

It's spelt 'Zegna', and yes it's pronounced 'Zen-Ya'.

Park Aves are on the slightly longer and narrower #5 last, but I can't see going down a full size in length from your normal shoe size; ditto for the width. I'm typically a long 9D/short 9.5D (a 9.25D, if you will), and a 9E fits me perfectly in the Park Ave. For your foot, I'd first consider a 9.5E on AE's #5 last. Hope this helps! - Keith
