Hello,

I had a quick question regarding black tie etiquette. While I understand that it is preferred that a cummerbund be worn with a shawl collar jacket, is it inappropriate to wear a cummerbund with peak lapel jacket?

Thank you in advance.

I wish I had the money to spend on clothes like most of you do but as a broke college student I'm in no such luck.

 

I've got at most $250 to spend on a peacoat.  I'm a huge fan of 3 button peacoats (6 buttons total) and I was looking for a gray one.  Anyone know of any solid places I could look?

Question: I bought a pair of slim fit Incotex. I put them on rolled the bottoms up and they fit and draped perfectly. Took them in to be hemmed and cuffed and now the don't drape nicely.....it looks as I need the waist raised in the back.. Why did this happen ??

When you bent over to roll them up you stretched out the butt area of the pants.

Also, when you say "odd jacket" do you mean like a blazer/sportcoat type thing?

Yes, that's what I mean.

Starting with good shoes sounds like a good idea. I would recommend buying them (or at least trying them on) in person, rather than online, to begin with, if you can. A decent pair of brown derbies maybe, or some brown suede chukkas. It really depends how smart or casual you want to be. Anyway, don't rush it, have a look through the WAYWYN thread, and the MC casual thread - sounds like you need to narrow things down a bit. Good grey wool trousers are a good, versatile trouser too, just make sure they're not too dark grey, and not too smooth or they'll look like they belong to a suit. Flannel or cavalry twill avoid that problem.

What do other people in your office wear? What does your boss wear? They say you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have...

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the brand of shoes i purchased recently.  They have what looks to be a lowercase "ee" written (in writing) on the sock, on the sole and on each metal eyelet.  at the back (heel) there seems to be an "xx" but it could just be a pattern. 



They are clearly high end shoes,

Clearly.

Those look like Clarks desert boots in beeswax. Looks like indigo from the jeans has been rubbing off on them. I use AE conditioner/cleaner to clean mine up occasionally and they look about that color.

What do you guys think of the tips on how a suit should fit in this video?


I mean if it's possible to go by this "guide" when thrifting or going to stores where the employees are not very knowledgeable.

I don't have any dress trousers. Would these from Howard Yount be a good choice for a first pair? Are they considered worsted or woolen? I'd probably go for the classic flannel, but they're sold out in my size.

Those are a worsted (or close to it... can't see the weave closely enough), and would definitely be a great choice for a first pair of trousers.

Schott peacoats (just google them) are highly regarded and $300, so a bit above your budget. Not sure if they go on sale but that might be worth looking into. If not, maybe try J Crew.

Ta da. The real thing, no need to spend more than that. They make one with a satin rather than a fleece lining for $265 too, if you can stretch your budget a little and want it, but it doesn't come in gray, though the camel would look nice. Or a 32oz 8 button, unvented version.

Schott would also be an option, but they don't seem to do 6 button.
