post #19351 of 28889

Been hunting for reasonably priced basic suit & shoe combo. I have a big event in March I will be speaking at and then I graduate college in May...and hope to start a job soon after. So this is somewhat of an investment for the future.

I have my eye on a Plain Navy Napoli suit from Suit Supply; is there something better in that price range? For reference, I am average height, but very thin.

 

I am looking at light brown/tan shoes to pair with the navy suit; currently it is a 3-way tie amongst the following:

 

Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue in Walnut

Meermin Linea Maestro in Light Brown

Andrew Lock Gryffin Wholecut

Just looking for input on these items or suggestions outside of the picks I've made. Thanks.

Between those two I would get camel. You would probably get better sizing help in the Howard Yount thread.

Thanks for the information. I looked up some pictures and they seem to be exactly what I'm looking for. I looked on the Charles Tyrwhitt site and they were sold out. I then called them and they're sold out in all locations so it looks like I won't be able to get the CT version. Loake has them on their site for 190 pounds and CT had them for $175, a large difference to be sure. I guess I'll try to find another place to order the Loake ones online...

Curious if I'm the only one with this clothing issue:

I've had a number of different styles and brands of pants where the fabric/material under the belt buckle and above the zipper wears out before the rest of the pants. I've tried different belts, and I've had this issue numerous times.

Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Andy

white polo shirt under beige round neck sweater

700

i recently got a white polo shirt as a gift, and it was kinda too big for me.

 

so i decided to wear it with my beige sweater. does this look weird to you guys?

 

any suggestions?

Does anyone have any idea where this shirt, seen in Made in Chelsea, is from? There are many shirts like it/similar to it out there, as I've seen while searching, but I'm looking for the exact one. Any help would be much appreciated smile.gif

Yes, that is odd. It is best to do a oxford cloth button down collar shirt under a sweater. That's basically the only decent looking combo.

If I wore a Tie Skinny (be it either a real Skinny one) or just reverse tying it - Aka the paul Weller look, what length should I wear it?

I like your look and style.It depends if you like Pastals more than Brighter Colours, but I can see no wrng in teaming up both garments. It look's nice.

Don't reverse tie a tie, that is stupid. If you wear a skinny tie it should be tied the same length as any other. The end should reach the top of your pant waistband.

Why not? I think it is taking off big time now!

I think it look's good! search on You-tube and it really proves it's popular as well, with a good few videos on it there!
