1) You think it is ok to wear these shoes with this suit? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Loake-mens-Semi-Brogue-formal-shoe-JAMES-Tan-Leather-G-fit-/130574213630?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D5624321466296107718 I will wear the suit only few times per year - mostly to college balls.
2) If the shoes will not work with the suit, you think it would help to exchange the suit for the lighter shade of navy? Again, the suit will be worn only few times per year mostly to college balls, so I do not need it for everyday wear.

Thank you!

A dark navy with those light shoes can do done but will draw a lot of attention - not for a beginner or anyone lacking confidence in the look. I would choose a dark brown shoe or burgundy/oxblood. With these shoes a lighter blue will look sharp, just avoid a dark navy with them.

There are regular Bean OCBD and LL Bean signature shirts, but the Signature shirts only come in S, M, L, XlL, no necks sizes.
I am in need of a blue and a white so the gulag bean shirts seem like a good purchase with my credit.
Is there anything else at LL Bean that I should consider?

LL Bean OCBD are fair quality wise, pretty good value wise. I prefer Brook Brothers, which also come in regular, slim and extra slim to help get the right fit.

Thanks, I am in the market for some BB shirts, but thought I would use the bean credit for a shirt or two, I can't think of anything else from bean that I could use at the moment.

Their "Bean Boots" are pretty darn useful. They have the non-laced ones in dark brown which are better than galoshes for if you work somewhere you need to wear a suit and its raining.

I cannot for the life of me find any information anywhere about it. Hoping this place is the key!

Please see the link

Thanks!


this isn't really a pea coat as much as it's a nylon jacket in the shape of a pea coat. search for "nylon pea coat"... I think H&M, Zara or Vince etc has coats such as this. (Just please do not take any cues from the guitarist in that pic! Please!)

Is there one that will fit more colors than the other? More versatile?

Both will be fine. Generally, I don't like the really deep french blues for wear with coat and tie, but it's fine with the appropriate tie, and the discounted blue certainly isn't too dark.

Go for whichever you like best. They're both light blues and will be incredibly versatile.

I think this would look better with a narrower tie. Or at the very least one which tapers more towards the knot.

Thanks, I'll take a look at those.

I am having trouble finding an OCBD shirt that is not treated with the wrinkle resistant chemical, does bean make just a regular OCBD?

yes... but they tend to be extremely casual and highly patterned. not a "dressy" ocbd, at least not that i've seen.

Does anyone know about the quality of Murano Suits? I bought a $600 murano suit (97% wool, 3% polyester) for $250.  Worth it quality wise? I need it probably once a month.
