Anyone have input on decent punchcap dress shoes in black with a narrower toe/last than AE Fifth Ave? Id like to keep it under 350.

The AE rutledge is about perfect, but i cant bring myself to pay 450+ for a pair of AE's...getting into CJ territory.

What types of shoes is more suitable for outdoor activities, grain leather or suede (both are dainite soles)?

Not knowing exactly what kind of outdoor activities you have in mind, I would say grain leather as it is easier to clean. For proper outdoors I would go with a technical shoe with a gore-tex membrane.

Hi everyone

 

I hope you can help me to answer my question.

 

I like brands which are simple and don't show there company name.

Thank you, I mean going picnic like fishing, walking on uneven and rough ground, maybe a little wet surface, I don't climb up a mountain or something like that.

Azumi: OK, in that case it's really a matter of personal preference then. I guess Suede would be more difficult to clean if it's muddy, that's all. And dainite soles can be slippery on wet ground, especially on rock, but not a big issue if you're careful.

Is it recommended or suggested to buy a suit, for example Express, for the measurements and supplying it to a MTM co. like Black Lapel?

You can also have a tailor take your measurements.

Need to shorten dress shirt sleeves. Should it be long enough or a tad short of reaching the point where my thumb meets the rest of my hand when I wear the shirt with cuffs unbuttoned?

Need some quick opinions...is this a good deal?

Thinking about getting this for a banquet (I'm in high school so I don't need a super expensive suit, just something that's not horrible). For $280 after all discounts, would this be a good deal?

 

 

Thanks!

I think for that price you can go to Jos. Banks and do better

Reposting this question, I know someone has bought from suit supply before... 

 

 

Will these look as shiny in real life as they do in the photos? (sorry wasn't able to download/copy and paste these)
