Those are called slippers. Try making some searches for that instead of loafers.
post #21828 of 29368
I tried but I still mainly get the ones with 'stitching' on top. Cant find any plain ones for men.

Yep, a navy linen/cotton would do well and is very versatile.

Now, clearly unstructured linen is less formal than a regular SC. Whether its too informal for your office only you can answer, but since they don't require you to wear a jacket, I'd say it's more formal than that, so I'd *think* it's fine--but only you could answer that.

My typical brand of dress shirt has always been Arrow.  How good, or bad, is arrow brand quality?

Google "albert slippers". They are most likely velvet rather than suede, and aren't really meant for heavy wear. Various retailers sell them - C&J, Shipton & Heneage, Del Toro.

Alternatively try googling "wholecut suede loafer". That should return proper shoes with goodyear-welted soles rather than slippers. Most English shoe makers should offer one, though often with a floating medallion. G&G's version is pretty bitchin' and I daresay they'd make one for you without the medallion.

See the Shoesnob's article on them.

What about the Allen Edmonds Ridgeway? Same style, rubber sole but a little more flashy because if the colored stitching.

I know it's not a wingtip but the AE Elgin for Brooks Bros. has a combination sole and could be an option for a casual shoe. I just ordered one from the AE outlets myself.

Hi

 

I've been looking all over the internet to find the sweater that DiCaprio wore in The Great Gatsby (see pic below), but could not find it anywhere! Does anyone know which brand it is, or where I could find similar sweaters?

 

Thanks!

How good or bad is Arrow's dress shirts in terms of quality?  They are my typical brand of dress shirts.

post #21835 of 29368

I am trying to suit a basic suit collection.  I work in banking so I need to wear it.

 

can you advise--which would be a good initial purchase?  

 

This one:


 

 

or this one:

 

 

 

Is one more versatile than the other?  I am normal build, dark complexion, if that makes any difference.

post #21836 of 29368

Darker is more formal, so in your circles I'd probably go for that.  Although the one I want to wear is the top one.  But then I'm not a banker, and wear whatever I like.

Since they are the brand you buy and wear, why don't you tell us how good or bad they are in terms of quality? Do you like them? If so, why? Do you dislike them? If so, why?

If the pants are so transparent that this would simply leave your underwear clearly visible, well, then maybe you ought to just write off the pants in question as being fundamentally unacceptable for wearing in polite society. (In impolite society, perhaps it's less important whether your pockets, crotch, and buttocks are on display.)

damn.

& Thank you. That was the wake-up call i needed in a general sort of waywt or projecting to the world sort of way.

If I get 33's (which don't really need the seat or rise taken in too much), it's got the same fold on the side as this "04 RELAXED" fit below.

How can I fix that? If you see it from the front, it makes my thighs look gigantic. I look like one of those hunters with the huge thigh pants.



1. The baseline/starting fit was not established. You normally wear a 33 in what fit style??

2. So for this brand you size up, have alterations performed and the pants fit. So what's the problem?? Every brand/label has their own fit. A slim fit 33 waist dockers chino may not fit the same as a slim fit 33 waist haggar chino. Consider shopping around.

3. The fold is probably extra fabric in the thigh and the pants tapers @ the knee; or its from the pocket gaping outward and creating fold.

You're welcome. And don't get me wrong; there's nothing inherently objectionable about wearing white pants in the appropriate setting. It's wearing see thru pants that tends to be a bad move. Sometimes a hot young woman can wear see thru pants and get away with it. On the off chance that you're a hot young woman, wing8tes_qw, please feel free to post multiple pictures of yourself wearing see thru clothing, and I'll happily provide you with feedback. Feel really free to do this.
