post #21001 of 28545

Does anyone know when the best time to reach ( exotic leather craftsmen named Bill Julian  )??

post #21002 of 28545

I would appreciate any input on my shoe decisions as I'm beginning to put together a better wardrobe even though my industry is quite casual (IT).  I have over the last year or so had a handful of suits custom made here in Atlanta ( http://customsuitshop.com/ ).  Dark Navy, Dark Charcoal, Black and Light Grey Windowpane suit.  Plus the usual light tan dress slacks.  I picked up the AE LaSalle in Chilli last year and wear this with my Navy suit and tan slacks:

Also picked up the AE Carlsbad in Walnut, wear with Tan slacks (not sure how i still feel about this pair).

http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF6612_1_40000000001_-1

 

I picked up these two pair based on what seemed to fit my foot at the AE store - one to replace a black Ecco pair.

 

AE Harrison in Black and AE Flatiron in Bourbon

Would greatly appreciate any feedback on these as i had considered looking at the C&J line, but figured since i had a local AE store plus could purchase twice as many AE vs C&J thought i'd go this route first.  But these last two haven't been worn and i do have the option to return if the feedback is the C&J or another line is worth getting just a pair or two now.

 

I also would value any input on which pairs / colors go best with suit colors that i now have or may look to purchase. 

 

Many Thanks.

I'm looking for a khaki blazer that pairs well with jeans and dark chinos. I don't want something that's too flesh-colored so close to my face, so perhaps something that's more lightly-colored than the color one normally imagines when thinking of "khaki". As a poor college student, affordability would be nice as well!

 

Perhaps something like this, but a little lighter.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Eith, take a look at this thread - http://www.styleforum.net/t/338954/streamlined-shoe-wardrobe/0_100. Also, this article sums up similar points too - http://putthison.com/post/27558524428/the-seven-shoe-wardrobe-the-longer-i-write-about. If you don't wear suits often, your one black pair of oxfords (AE Harrison) is probably going to be sufficient, and otherwise, you can focus on derbies, loafers, monks (and boots, although I suspect you don't need those so much in Atlanta), mostly in various shades of brown or cordovan.

 

That said, my opinion is that you are best off getting first shoes that you can try on. So if you can find a place which stocks C&J (Barneys etc.), go ahead, but if not, Allen Edmonds is a good choice too. Once you have a solid rotation, you can start experimenting by ordering other brands online if that's your thing.

Can a black t-shirt under a grey cashmere sweater work?

Not in the classical Men's Wear subdivision of the forum. But if you're young and fit, then sure, it will look cool. If everything fits.

Depending on the season, I would look for a linen unstructured sport coat, quarter lined (if this is for spring/summer/early fall) or something in cotton. I get this from what you would want to pair it. Check out Gant (http://us.gant.com/men/clothing/blazers), brooks brothers (http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Regent-Fit-Two-Button-Linen-Sport-Coat/MM00195,default,pd.html?dwvar_MM00195_Color=LTBR&contentpos=4&cgid=0217 or http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Fitzgerald-Fit-Cotton-Linen-Sport-Coat/MM00193,default,pd.html?dwvar_MM00193_Color=LTBR&contentpos=1&cgid=0217), or JPress.

Frankly, I would go for something lighter, because the contrast would be too strong with the color and the difference in texture
