How do Dockers Alpha Khakis fit in relation to Levi's 508?

Does anyone know which vendor partner is offering those suede and calf Balmoral boots being offered at a special launch price starting in September?

I can't remember who it is. It's not the Wang.

I just got a couple shirts back from my MTM guy in LA. He had to take the sides in a bit which he did but they also put darts in them??? I thought he would just take fabric out at the sides, are darts acceptable on a MTM shirt? Thank you in advance for your thoughts...

How did I do with these two looks? As for the feet area of the suit . . . I don't have proper wingtips yet, and I'll probably do something with the hem soon.

I like the enthusiasm, however:

  • Jacket is too long, if the length goes past your thumb, its too long
  • Those shoes are all wrong, get some oxfords, or saddles in a two tone, or white bucks. But the mocassins/slippers just don't look right
  • Tie is too long, easily fixed

Just my .02, but some better pictures would help. Don't let anyone tell you to get rid of the pants

For second pics:

  • Your suit's button stance is very low
  • Lose the mocassins, possibly cuff the pants
  • Tie is a bit too long again, try to get that sweet sweet dimple in the knot
  • Shoulders look a tad big on you

I agree with this. The first thing that stood out to me was the shoes though. They look a little like bedroom slippers.

Is that a bad sign? I didn't purchase them, have them on hold, but I wonder if the heel should move not at all or a couple mms is okay?
A half size down more became uncomfortable.
I was wearing dress socks on a summer day.

Half size down, but go for one size wider. Do not get the shoe if the heel slips... especially since they are pricey Lobbs!

Which shoes? Shoes in the first picture are Top-Siders. It wouldn't be uncommon to see a few people in fraternities at my school wearing something similar.  As for the suit, I know something a little less casual is in order. Those are just desert boots.

Good effort.  To add on to the above, I would go for a solid tie in the second look - the herringbone jacket, patterned shirt, and tie don't necessarily go.  Maybe go to a solid navy tie, or if you want a more casual look with it a navy knit.  Shoulders are, as noted, a bit wide on the second one but the pattern is quite nice and the rest of the fit is decent (minus the pants length).  Love the shirt on the second outfit.  Keep on keepin' on, if you are still in college you are way ahead of the curve.

Don't necessarily be afraid to branch out a bit from what the stereotypical people at your school wear.  Even just some penny loafers may make that look a lot better!

If everyone dressed like the stereotype, there would be no need for this site!  biggrin.gif

This is not clothing related but I don't want to start a thread just for the question.

What are the small trees/plants people keep in their office called? I think it starts with an H, is there a thread on sf about this?

Thanks

I've been hunting watches for a while, but being a student and with the exchange rate as it is at the moment, my budget is seriously limited. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Was initially looking at the Skagen super slim, as I am really not fond of bulky watches although I do have decently sized wrists.




After loads of searching this forum and others, it seems that these are really not very durable. I really love the design, suits my style and my personality.

So after some deliberation I have been looking at the Seiko automatics. Far from the lovely slim Skagen, but perhaps a worthy contender? I hunted around on Amazon and found this baby on special.




Still a pretty fine looking time piece (bar the date, which seems hamfisted), but looking at the strap, I am guessing that I'd not be able to swap around much, if at all? Hopefully I am wrong.

Perhaps not a direct question, but can anyone share any opinions, knowledge or recommendations here? Once again, my budget is tight, and I'd max out at $100.

Thanks for your time smile.gif

Of the two I'd go for the Seiko. I like the balanced design and think it'd be more versatile and maybe a better value. I'm partial, though.. wore only Seikos thru my uni time and loved every single one. I agree the date could be better, or better without.

Go with what you love. Choosing a watch is important that way.

Hi - I'm new here, and I just purchased some AE Strands in Walnut, size 6.5D.  I can't find shoe trees anywhere for a shoe this size.  Does anyone have a place where I can get shoe trees for my shoes?  I'm kind of miffed that AE doesn't make a shoe tree that fits.

 

Thanks!!

Try these? The smalls fit my 7Ds fine, and I think they could probably go a size smaller. Most of the various shoe repair guys around here carry them.
