post #22936 of 28873

I'm looking for a staple slim-fit light-grey wool trousers that can be worn with odd jackets and more casual pieces alike, budget $125 (I'm willing to go on eBay or play the sales game, so the trousers themselves may be in the $200+ range.) Any idea?

Check out Jcrew. Its slim fit trouser are very spot on for me. Epaulet trousers retail for about 200 and they are some of the best pants I've worn. Howard Yount is great as well, but its pants is on the baggier side compared to the EP walts.

New to the tie game since my work is business casual. 

 

Is this tie worth 35 bucks? 

 

http://dappered.com/2013/07/bonobos-extra-30-off-sale-items-the-picks/ (scroll down to venetian tie)

 

I'm looking to build a semi lean collection, so something say...less than 10 ties. 

 

If not, can somebody steer me in the right direction. At what price point is the sweet spot to pay per tie?

I was thinking about those too! I like J.Crew's fit and affordability, but unfortunately the lightest grey they have is this.

 

 

Same problem with Epaulet.

 

 

HY has the shades that I want,

 

but how baggy are they? I'm afraid anything baggier than J.Crew slim fit is too baggy for me :(

That could give you a better chance of getting the right size on the first try. Since your interviews aren't until the fall, you would have time to send a few back for a different size if you didn't feel like fronting the money for multiple sizes at once. Also, to answer your earlier question...If you buy one of the suits online and decide you like the look/fit, then you can take it to a tailor in your area to have final adjustments made. If you are unsure whether it is a good fit, you can post pics here and/or ask the tailor for his opinion before having alterations made.

Is this the shoe you're talking about?

Edit: By the way, post a link and picture(s) in your first post asking about an item if you have a specific one in mind. It will lead to quicker and more helpful responses.

Do you have a credit card? Buy all of the suits early in the billing cycle. Keep the one you want, send the rest back. You should never have to shell out actual cash for the suits you returned.

Don't know about the quality of this one, but if you're aiming for less than 10 ties, I would definitely not choose this design. I'd start with a few solid-colored grenadines, one or two knit ties, some classic reps and a few small printed florals.

Dillard's.

Get the HYs. Have your tailor trim off any unwanted bagginess.
post #22947 of 28873

Thank you for all of the responses. I do have a credit card so buying a couple sizes from Suitsupply is possible since I will never personally be out the cash. Can I get a decent suit at Dillards? Or should that be a last resort? Also, what is a good place to get my measurements done and to have tailored in my area? Should I find a local place or will a chain store also provide that service even if I do not buy from them?

 

Thanks again!

What are the collective thoughts on corduroy trousers? I really do not like chinos (really do not like), I have my share of well maintained jeans, but would like to get some options for dress-down, business (office) casual. I am looking at the BB Clark fit corduroy; any general opinions of comments specific to the BB's?

I am open to any other recommendation, please? (price is not a significant concern)...Thanks, jtb

I don't mind cords at all. I own two pairs that I wear in the fall and will wear desert boots with them. It's nice for kicking around on the weekends but I wouldn't wear them to my office even though we're business casual.

It's probably office acceptable but it feels too casual to me.

Is the Brooks Brothers non-iron button down still an oxford cloth?
