What do you gents think about these boots for office wear? We are required to occasionally wear formal business attire but all other times is business casual. Would these boots be versatile enough to pull off formal and casual?

 

Thank you,

They are a bit... shiny? Do you know what the material is? It's hard to tell from the picture. 

 

I think that generally, a derby boot CAN be versatile enough to work both casually and for some slightly dressier occasions, but not this particular boot. As said, it's very shiny, which leads me to believe isn't full grain leather. Also, rubber soles, especially red rubber soles, wouldn't work for a dress boot to be worn with a suit. If you can find something similar made from a full grain leather and with a leather sole, you'll be on a better track.

Hey guys, do you know where to find the shorts from the Cole Haan advertising campaign? If not those exact shorts, ones similar to them? Thanks.

Hey I've been looking around for some nice grey trousers (~$150 range) and I wanted to know if you can can recommend any?

 

I like the style of these: (http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=56575&vid=1&pid=421166&scid=421166002).

 

Is there something similar or better quality-wise you guys can recommend for around the same price, with this same kind of style?

 

I prefer them to be slim fit have have some kind of pattern but I am open to suggestions.

 

I'm a size 36x30 and I'm open to ebay/B&S

 

Thanks...

Epaulet and Howard Yount are both in this price range, slim fit, and much higher quality than BR.

Looking for a lace-up shoe, not a loafer.
Would love something like this: 7DQbw.jpg, but it's $600 !

edit...sorry read it wrong. Why not a split toe? Are you basically looking for a glorified boat shoe?

Is this a forward or a reverse pleat? Also, would it be described as shallow or deep?

Thanks, I knew I could count on SF to help me find something better than some of these mall brands...

Forward, shallow.

Any opinions of the quality of Howard Yount's brogues? I took a stab at it and ordered a pair in brown the other other day. Been exclusively wearing AE's for the last 5 years.

Spilled a tiny bit of pasta sauce (quarter the size of a penny) on my tie today. What would you gentlemen recommend as the best way to get it out? FWIW, it's a silk tie (I think) from Brooks Brothers. Not super nice quality, but nice enough that I'd like for it to last for at least a few weeks.

Dry-cleaners?

post #15240 of 28887
If there is any hope then its a good dry cleaner, you definately don't want to take water to a silk tie
