Just wondering what kind of tie I should wear?

with a white or light blue shirt, you could literally pick just about any tie as long as it's not black.

 

With a lavender or pink shirt, you could also have a good selection, but something closer to either the pink or lavender would work best. I.E. Lavender shirt, dark purple tie, with a navy suit,  good looking brogue and a contrasting pocket square, perhaps a light blue paisley or polka dot, would be excellent and would be my choice in a fall or winter situation Match the socks to the square, the tie, or the shirt for some fun or to your navy suit to rain it in. You could also go white cotton pocket square to bring it down some as well.

 

If it's in the fall or winter, I would suggest a wool or cashmere tie to set yourself apart from the crowd... and in so doing get the bridesmaids' attention as well.

 

If in the spring/summer, a bowtie might show well, or a cotton tie with a small pattern and light summer color, perhaps a lime green or baby blue. Personally here I would go with the light blue shirt, with a cotton paisley tie in a light color in the spring, and pick up one of the colors in the paisley with the pocket square. 

 

Hope this helps!!!

I think in places like NYC, LA, Milan, etc. people probably dress up for these events, but not so much in smaller cities, (see third video of Boulder, CO). I think it's mainly geared toward women, but I just like fashion and want to go.

http://youtu.be/rq54CeCinQ4  (completely casual, but it's Boulder, CO)

I'm not going to the one in Denver proper, which I could see as a better place to wear a suit. They have a niemen marcus and the fashion show will be there, and I would think that a city like Denver would have some fashionable people. I just live south of Denver, and given that I have work on Fri, don't want to drive to Denver (also don't want to pay).

I've been debating heading down to the DC one tomorrow, just to sniff it out. If I do, I probably won't wear anything too special- OCBD and a bowtie with jeans and a linen sportcoat, or something along those lines. I would think the general idea would be to wear something you would regard as fashionable- this is almost certainly a two way deal, with representatives from major brands watching it to get an idea of street trends. I don't think there are any rules on what's appropriate in terms of formality- I'm sure you'll see a pretty wide range.

I'm considering buying a pair of black chelsea boots from the company Bexley, and plan on wearing with either casual wear (chinos, jeans, slacks), or occasionally a suit. Should I go with the Flager or Jermyn pair?

USA, Korea, and General question

 

USA - Where is the best place to buy fashionable clothing online that can ship to APO addresses? This includes ties, pocket squares, brogue shoes, shirts, suit jackets, pants, etc.

Korea - What are the basic things I need to tell a tailor here so I get the best quality suit and pants for whatever price range. Stitching / gluing / rubber stays in the waist / pleat / fit / how the lapels fall against the chest, etc. There seems to be so many variables that can end up getting you a suit you're not happy with, I want to know where to start.

 

And finally - What is your one style tip for any guy in a night-scene? Bar / Club / Pub type.

 

Thanks all!

Anyone who know about purple label sizing can help me out.

I'm looking at long wool overcoats (Rlpl)

The coats are measured m l xl
How do those sizes correlate to suit size measurements? Ie 40r

When people say that men should never wear white pants, does that also include cream, stone, beige, etc. colored pants?

 

I have a pair of 'stone' pants from BB and wasn't sure if this was "too white" to wear without violating some fashion rules.

Anyone heard of tweed fabric from the Abraham Moon mill(england)? How's the quality like? A Jcrew jacket uses this fabric and then there is a cheaper H&M "premium quality" jacket that uses the same fabric........Looking to pick up the latter one myself

Cream, stone, and beige are great, classic options. White is less common than the off white shades, but it's fine too.

Those shades probably are included when people say men shouldn't wear white pants, but the people who say that are morons. It's not a real rule.

Hoping this is the right place for this question: I'm looking to buy my first pair of brown pinch penny or beefroll loafers and would like to spend less than $200 as I'm a recent college grad. I've done a decent amount of research and know that LL Bean, Bass, Sebago, and AE seem to be well-reviewed and have found some pairs I'm interested in.  My biggest problem is I have very wide feet and narrow heels (I wear a 9 EEE in the AE Park Avenues).

 

Can someone tell me which of these would be the best value, or let me know if there are some other options out there I'm missing?

 

Thanks in advance-- this is a great site.

 

AE Winnetka - look somewhat clunky to me and appear to be discontinued, but they're a good price and I have a 20% off coupon through Amazon for shoes making these about $155.

 

Bass Gilman - $109.95. Know these particular ones don't get a ton of love on some style forums but seem like a decent price (and they're wide enough).  

 

AE Flagstaff - in dark brown grain leather. $195. Little pricey and a new model, but really like the look of these.

 

LL Bean Allagash - $99. 

 

* EDIT: Adding Sebago Classic from DSW - $85 for 9 W or 9.5W
