Botton line - does this look real and/or does anyone have experience with this seller?

I particularly ask because the lining of the pants doesn't match the lining on a RLPL suit I bought a few years ago. 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

To be honest I would say absolutely not worth it. As you are obviously uninterested in a black suit for the most part by saying it wasn't your choice, and assuming that you therefore would not be wearing it much after the fact, you could go for perhaps a hugo boss black  label which you can find for sub $400.

 

for that price, it could be fine to wear out to a club or some such after the fact, but if it never sees real life again you would b fine as well. it just seems that nearly $1,200 on a suit you seem to not care for very much is absolutely not work that $. Keep the other $800 and spend it on the bridesmaid you'll b bringing home that night!

I like these pumas but I don't think I'd wear them with that shirt.

 

If you're dead set on wearing that shirt with black jeans I'd suggest a black or grey chukka?

 

+1 black jeans go with black, grey, or white. beyond that an you're at about 94% chance of looking terrible. Mind you, beat up black jeans with a white henley with a black leather or waxed cotton jacket (see: belstaff) can work great... perhaps with black chelsea boots and you look  like a bad mothaf*ckah. 

 

A dark blue jean has SIGNIFICANTLY more wearability. Brown, black, patterns, solids.... it's a go-to cure all look great. Get some naked & famous perhaps.

I wear mine with gray, greens, purple, and burgundy too, but I would agree that blue jeans are much more versatile. I still enjoy black jeans on their own terms though, I find outfits that are simply textured shades of gray and black fun once in a while. Faded black jeans, black shoes, gray v neck sweater with the shirt collar being the only pop of color, or even just plain white.

Hey MCers, this is probably a pretty common question, but I couldn't find anything by searching so I'm just gonna drop it here.

 

What's a good brand for cheaper dress shoes? I know that AE seconds or AE on sale is a pretty general recommendation around here, but I'm looking for a little cheaper than that. I'm your typical broke college student that will hopefully be going to SV post-graduation, so I don't expect to need really nice, last-forever dress shoes. I basically only really need them for job interviews/fairs, fraternity/sorority formals, and basic situations like that, so I'm looking for black caps or plain toed lace-ups that look good enough and stay within reasonable prices (<~130?). Thanks everyone!

Quick question:

 

Do you guys think MTM suit is worthy?

 

i enjoy wearing tailored garments, they fit!

 

except the two of my favorites: A Timeless & L.H.S., any recommendations?

Took a shot as a separate thread, but no replies.

His office used to be suit-n-tie every day but no more, so doesn't need quite the same size closet he had. I like the mix of physical pattern in the design of these two, but the colors are complex enough I'd love to know what shirts you think these would go with.

In case the colors are too washed out to see.. Both have alternating fabric patterns (flat and houndstooth, almost)

 

The left one has broad grey/silver and yellow stripes along with thinner orange pinstripes.Yellow and grey is more straight forward than the other tie (which is really bugging me) but I've never really worn orange of any kind so just wondering.

The right one is white along with stripes of pink, white, and dark dark maroon/red stripes. This one really throws me because white is one color (for ties) I'm not familiar with. It'd be too washed out by a white shirt, right? Light blue (since it goes with each color individually)?

 

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Any suggestions for good shoes to wear out during the fall-- during the daytime and at bars?  I was looking into a new pair of loafers but worried those would be better as a spring/summer shoes.

 

Thanks!

Suede shoes are great for fall. Wingtip boots, or wingtips come to mind for the fall.

Any ideas on some good slacks/dress pants for work in the $80 price range? Would love something with a nice slim cut. I really like this fit, but I can't swallow a $175 price tag at this point. http://www.bonobos.com/po-8837-feb-fashion-wool-pants-brown-houndstooth

Does anyone know how high the rise (or measurement) is on Charles Tyrwhitt moleskin trousers? I have contacted them twice but have had no concrete answer yet.

Would an OCBD with contrasting cuff lining (i.e., only shows when sleeves are rolled) be stupid?  Thinking blue OCBD with blue gingham.  I'm having trouble finding photos of something like this, which might been it's a bad idea.

Don't do it.
