Not a balmoral, but an oxford, and if you think the Kent Wang shoes are too pointy these may be too pointy for you too:

Dear styleforum, I'm not as rich as I once was. With style that some may call "questionable", I call "doing the best I can with whatever i find from goodwill". That being said, please don't hate too much.
I'm trying to go for more of a clean look, with springy colors. Not going for super-flashy. Also - no laughing at the belt, I quite like it.

I'm looking for advice, suggestions, thoughts, etc.

Shirt, tie, jacket, shoes - goodwill. Belt - ebay. Pants - Kindly donated to me by the fine Rugby fellows on Bleecker St.

What UK size / width am I?

 

I measured my feet on a Footjoy-branded Brannock Device.

Measurements came back as US11 Wide, which I think translates to a US 11EE.

 

However, based on conflicting advice from various websites, I'm unsure if I'm supposed to downsize 1 or 1/2?

So far the values I have come up with are UK10G or UK10.5F.  

 

I know that there is a margin of error based on specific lasts shapes, etc, but I'm thinking of ordering Loake shoes online and need a general rule of thumb.

With Loakes, I would definitely go with the 10.5 UK for a US 11.

How does this look? How should I tailor it so that it'll look better?

You shouldn't buy shoes that you aren't trying on in person, unless you are prepared to return them if they don't fit. And don't use wishful thinking that something fits "somewhat." Many times on this forum, people work themselves into a weird state where they focus on the shoes as objects instead of something that needs to fit on their feet.

That being said, some of the Brooks Brothers Peal shoes are C&J -- generally they're the ones that come in both standard and nonstandard widths. Bodileys and Pediwear offer the best online C&J selection and prices. A 10.5E in Allen Edmonds would be (roughly) an 9.5F in C&J (when translating from US to UK, generally subtract one to the length and add one letter to the width, although Edward Green is usually just a half-size lower).

I had a tailor taper a pair of my pants. They really messed up the fit, but fortunately just folded the fabric over on the inside. Is it more work for another tailor to open the pants back up and fix them than the original job? I asked one place and they tried to charge me way more saying that it was more work to open up the new seam, but it seems like the first person had to do that too...

I think it works, but it's pretty dang flashy. I would tone down the shirt- try a white oxford instead.

Essentially. There are several SF members who've joined up, and they've all been happy with the squares they've received.

Rebuilding wardrobe. Need suggestions. I need these to be:

A) available second hand on ebay or B&S

B) inexpensive (second hand), but not garbage

C) cuts that will work on me, if I can afford anything I probably can't afford to tailor it too.

 

 

list (Click to show)

 

Shirts

3 medium/heavy weight Casual OCBD’s in solid or conservative checks (have maybe 2) +1-2

 

Sweaters

2 Solid sweater vests, 1 grey, 1 navy (have grey) +1

 

Pants

1 pair good heavy grey flannels (have mediocre)

1 pair jeans (need good pair apparently) +1

My tailor tapers many of my trousers, it should not be more difficult than the norm. Unless your other tailor added more stitching or something similar.
