I think a light blue shirt and a dark burgundy tie would look really nice. Just make sure the tie isn't too red or shiny if you go in that direction.

Hey there. I am looking to buy new shoes. I currently have what I show you on the picture here.
I want to expand, preferrably with a pair of suede oxfords or suede chukka/desert boots. The color is the only thing that's stopping me from a decision. What would be more versatile, grey or dark brown?

post #16998 of 28658
Brown.

I would get a pair of dark brown captoe oxfords, or some dark brown wingtip derbies. Suede is out of the question for you, you need more basics. As is you don't even have that. Also an unconventional color like gray is out of the question. Get gray suede shoes when you already have 10 pairs of good shoes.

As well as any other suggestions to dress shirt color besides light blue and purple.  Thanks



Shoe color cannot be said without knowing something about the circumstances. Other colors might sometimes be okay.

Purple? As in solid purple. Please don't. Purple on a whilte background would be good. Light green, even solid, might work - but again, circumstances.

Additional advice: don't buy the suit, or return it if you can. That's a low-quality line, and the style isn't versatile.

It really depends on the wedding, but I would say it is a little but to informal and more going to a golfing event.

Okey. It might be worth adding that I'm a 18 year old student. I don't wear suits and stuff, just casual clothes. Would you still go for brown?

Same question as above. And isn't suede a form of "casual" material? I was thinking something like http://i.stpost.com/hs-trask-electric-city-oxford-shoes-for-men-in-dark-brown-suede~p~3858n_04~1500.jpg or http://images.asos.com/inv/media/0/5/2/4/1914250/brown/image1xxl.jpg. I think wingtips are a bit too tryhard, as I am more of a casual look. Chinos/sweaters/cardigans/shirts etc.
 

EDIT: Don't get me wrong on the tryhard bit. I just think that wingtips are better off for suits. Or I have related them to suits, that's a better choice of words

Brown is a casual color.
post #17006 of 28658

Okey. Yeah I like brown, I really enjoy my brown boat shoes.
Somewhere in the back of my head it feels stupid to have 2 brown pair of shoes. And that I should do something to make them less similar. Maybe higher shoes, darker. I'm so not sure of what to do haha!

I purchased some Allen Edmond Park Avenue's yesterday from a shop down state (about 2 hours away). Today while wearing them I noticed one is lighter then the other. Probably was sitting out on display. Is there any way to darken the shoe? Or do I have to drive all the way down state just to return it?

Hi,

Does anyone know good designer brand for casual shirts in the UK?

 

I bought some abercrombie flanel shirts but looking for different style/branded casual shirts now

post #17009 of 28658

Went to BB for shirts today and had the guy measure me. He said I'm 14.5 and 33. I tried on a 33, but was concerned the sleeves might be a hair short. Should I go up to a 34 sleeve?

 

 

 

and

 

Is this an acceptable collar for a tall and skinny person (6'1" and 150 lbs)?

After a few applications of polish/cream it will most likely be unnoticeable
