The formality of the two indeed doesn't quite match. Also, black and blue jeans usually doesn't look good. Brown is definitely the better choice.

It'd make things easier. It would also seem to keep the thread bumped w/o a price reduction, I guess. Couldn't find this in the rules.

Thanks.

If the admins feel your trying to game the system.Then yes, your going to get warned.

I wear dark blue jeans with my AEs quite often, I get my jeans long and roll the bottoms up to form a cuff. Definitely go with brown shoes just as you would with navy trousers.

Thanks.

It's against the rules.

Online MTM is generally a bad idea. Lots of people get suits that are horrible.

Frankly, the $500 good suit question really boils down to the fact that at retail price, any suit that costs $500 is a low-end fused piece. If you happen to find something on sale, that's great, but there are no guarantees of that. Does your $500 include alteration costs? Those are likely to be at least $100. In other words, the odds of getting a decent suit for $500 are low.

I'm not including alterations I'm aware of the extra cost. At 500 I can find a decentish suit in 40l on b and s etc. If I have to get the 38 I might have to go with m2m, which I would prefer to avoid.

Is it a good idea to use ordinary soap to wash a wool sweater?

Use woolite.

A question on button stance: is the ideal positions of the main button (the middle one for 3-button or 3-roll-2, the top one for 2-button) the same across all of the aforementioned types of jacket?

Ok - thanks for the answers!

Do you use the oxford model, or a less formal model of AE like Dinhilion suggested?

Would it be a style faux pas to wear a casual jacket and pants that are the same color? (In my case, khaki harrington with khaki pants) And if so, should I buy a darker khaki harrington? Or would that also be a bad look?

Shoe N00b question

I'm looking at getting some real dress shoes. (At Sky Valet) I notice that EG is almost $1000 new, and Crockett is relatively cheap.

Is Edward Green worth the price difference compared to brands like Crockett?

Are we talking forest green, lime green, or something like an olive?

Oil? If mink oil, which would have been a pretty decent choice for restoring the leather, make sure you brush 'em real well to get the remnants off, otherwise you'll have a fit polishing 'em. If something else, I hope you didn't use something that will hurt them.

As for polish color, they appear to be brown to me. I would use brown polish, and at least for the first few times, use cream polish. Better for the leather, and the leather on those looks like it could use some TLC. Also, you need new laces.

Or use something like a tan, which won't have as much dye, keeping the color close to what it is now. If you like the patina.

Treat 'em right. Unless I'm sorely mistaken, those are old florsheims. That's a quality shoe, and should last for ages with proper care. Usually I recommend that people have the leather heel replaced with rubber on those, but I see the previous owner has done that for you.
