Are we talking about with or without a jacket? What colour pants?
I purchased two made-to-order BB "suiting essential" (SE) suits in solid navy and charcoal with the Regent fit. Because of a last minute change in internship plans and a limited budget, I couldn't buy the 1818 line for suits.
I'll have enough money this winter to buy two 1818 suits, should I get solid navy and charcoal again or different colors and/or patterns? Also, will a Fitzgerald or Milano cut be timeless and appropriate for courts and law firms like the Madison or Regent fit?
Btw, I'm 1L law student in Texas building a professional wardrobe from scratch. I plan to wear these four suits (and a few more that I buy) for several years.
I don't know anything about those suits, but I'd say two things: if you're going to look professional, having skinny low-rise trousers and a short, close-fitting jacket, is not the way. So whatever suits you're buying, of course you want shape and structure, but don't get anything shiny, tight or too Ryan Gosling. Give yourself a nice manly shaped silhouette, but make sure you've room to sit, walk and generally move around with absolute freedom. You don't have to wear a sack, but you don't want to look like Justin Bieber either. Even in the gilded halls of the WAYWRN thread, there are many suits that are just too short and tight to look like proper business attire. I'm hoping the suits you have fit you well.
The second thing: as for colours, you've two great staples in a solid blue and a solid charcoal. If you can't wear them for the reasons above, then by all means go again with those two colours - the perfect universal suit options. But assuming your existing suits are fine, I'd say add a navy chalk stripe, and a lighter grey pinstripe. Very business, always stylish, and different enough from your existing options.
Cardigans and the like come from Marks and Spencer, and you'll get two or three for that.
Alternatively, ask in Streetwear and Denim. They love their knitwear.
I have never been much interested in the chance that I have been picking a bad brand of dress shirt. It wasn't until I hurt my feet and had to upgrade me shoes that I started thinking that I might also be wearing an inferior brand of dress shirt as well. I typically like to wear solid white since that color goes with everything and there is zero chance that I could be not coordinating my outfit one morning, Something that is very helpful since when I get up in the morning and go to the closet I am 95% asleep. One of the problems that I have been running into with Arrow lately is that that they wrinkle real easily while I am wearing them, id I role up a sleeve for any reason, like getting blood taken, the sleeve is all wrinkled when I put the sleeve down. Problem is that until lately I really do not know what a good quality brands of men's dress cloths are. I will need to rely on the internet for ordering since the only men's formal wear that my home town has are Joseph A. Banks, Men's Warehouse and Brooks Brothers. My town has Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack as well. I guess what I am looking for is someone to point out a good brand of dress shirt becuse I have been wearing one brand for so long I really have no idea what a quality shirt is.
