post #16801 of 28322

I want  good quality (AE level) shoe but with a "sleek/modern" look. I checked out McAllisters but I didn't like them even though the 5 last is one of the sleeker AE last. For example I like the 348 last from Crockett and Jones. Especially their Hallam. I have only seen pictures of the 348 last online though so I don't know what it actually looks like. I liked pics of the McAllisters but they look much chunkier IRL. 

 

So what are some suggestions within a $300 budget?

I got these pants from Barney's that unfortunately came stained and they won't do anything in terms of an exchange and only offered a 10% credit. Any idea on how I can clean this out?


return them

Unfortunately can't return 'em otherwise I would have.

And no dress shirts. The Charles Trywhitt sale looks semi promising as there are still solid white and blue shirts.

black jacket with a navy grenadine and either a light blue or a blue gingham shirt?

Jacket is being worn tomorrow night for sure and I have a new grenadine I have been wanting to wear but I can't tell if this feels off...

How dark would you go on the pants? I don't have a pair of medium gray pants. Just light and dark gray.

Not sure if all these features go together, I love the peak lapel but not sure if a ticket pocket would look off or not. I'm looking for a versatile suit with this effort, since I have the choice to omit or add details as it will be MTM. Any thoughts appreciated.

 

I very much like ticket pockets with peak lapels. The only ticket pocket suit i currently own is a peak lapel. If hat helps. It really comes to what you personally like. If you want to see what it looks like (you will have to imagine it with smaller lapels) but look up Harvey specter suits from the tv show. He wears nothing but peak lapel suits (albeit they are 3 roll 2's) with ticket pockets.

My University has two big career fairs every year and I am going to attend them both (one in fall and one in spring). Everyone is wearing black suits and I was wondering if I should wear one too. I read the 101 guide about interviews and it says that I shouldn’t wear a black suite in interviews; I imagine that the same applies to career fairs and information sessions. My problem is that if everyone wears a black suit and I wear a dark grey/light grey suit I will look a bit off. So, should I go with a grey suit or a black one?

Why not? Unless they were reduced and specifically marked as damaged they can't just unknowingly sell you soiled goods then refuse to take them back. The trousers are damaged, surely they have to take them back? Do you not have any consumer protection laws in the US?

Imagine if a company sold you a TV that turned out to be broken and non-working, then refused to allow you to return it. That would be ridiculous, wouldn't it?

To follow up on this, did you pay with a credit card? If so, call them and contest the charge. They almost always side with the consumer, especially if the consumer has good reason.

How do you know everyone is going to wear a black suit? It might just be the people you talked to. I seriously doubt any of the recruiters will be in black suits. So my advice is, just because everyone else looks bad doesn't mean you should too, so don't wear black. If you wear a charcoal suit, I really don't think you will look out of place, even if everyone else is in black.

Totally agree with this.  I went to some career fairs when I was in college (about 3-4 years ago) in a Charcoal suit.  While I don't think I looked particularly amazing, I definitely didn't feel out of place.  Go with what you think looks good, you'll feel more confident.  THAT means everything, IMO, not the color of suit you're wearing ;).

Don't wear a black suit ever. That is horrible, man.

Hard to tell w/o seeing the pants. If the dark grey aren't almost charcoal, they would probably work.

Does a black, cap toe balmoral (where the vamp goes all the way around the heel like a longwing) under 400 exist?
