Well ties are discussed at great lengths in various threads. In regards the the white shirt there is a white shirt thread. All in all the CBD thread and Whnay's good taste thread has great examples.

Thanks, I thought so. As a student, I feel that black cap toes would be a bad investment because I'm still a freshman and to be honest, I'll probably only wear it once throughout my whole four years. My goal is to undergrad w/ a major in accounting and go to law school depending on my LSAT/GPA. If I stick with accounting, do you think Strands will cut it for interviews? I'm in NYC so it's conservative though a bit liberal as well. If I go to law school, I'll invest more heavily in shoes though.

I think the Strands are too decorated for interviews in NYC.

Which tie for a wedding this weekend?

Trying to decide between the two of these to go with a Navy suit and light blue shirt (pictured). I know the safe bet is to go with the Navy, but seems a bit boring to me. The gold is totally on the other side and might be a bit too garish though.

I happened across these shoes on ebay

 

 

They are listed as Vintage Cloud Club oxfords, very cheaply priced.  I just wanted to get an opinion on them here because I have never heard of the brand or anything.  The price seems too good to be true for anything of decent quality.

Definitely not a gold tie for a wedding, unless the ceremony is to be conducted atop an elephant in Las Vegas.

Lol, "The Shoes with the pillow inside."

Don't look too bad for the price, though. Go for it.

While reading over this thread, there was some discussion about bias pipes came up. Despos explained them in the following, but I am still confused.
These are images from the original thread:
 

I wouldn't recommend this if you ever want to actually put anything in your pockets without the mouths completely stretching out of shape.

Yes. At least those that look good.

I have the BB Strand and wore them in light rain today. I was shocked at how slippery they were because of the semi-rubber sole. Is this common?

I second this. While there is a lot on this forum about ties, it's filled with a great deal of fluff in between. Though it would be nice to expect anyone who wanders in from Google to bother searching the forum and then reading through various threads, it seems more likely they'll give up and just throw on that satin turquoise tie to go with their black suit and black shirt. 

 

And I think we can all agree that won't just be his problem. A man in such a combination is everybody's problem.

Any place where I can get a decent Navy blazer in XS/34 for under $500?

Very difficult to find one in that size at all.

Meaning no offense, but might a boy's blazer fit? Because I understand that finding a men's blazer (or suit) in a size smaller than 36 can be difficult.

Otherwise, I suppose $500 would be enough for you to go the made-to-measure (MTM) route.
