They're both frye boots. I might have to get the one on the left. It fits all my criteria and their stuff is awesome.

 

The left is the frye james and right is the frye philip. I think they have different versions of each one with lugged soles vs leather soles vs brown leather vs distressed leather, etc. Those are the combinations I like best because they can look professional while still take a beating and go well with jeans for a night out!

panyen, it's been said that a businessman matches his socks to his pants, while a gentleman matches his socks to his mood.

Today's Halloween, and I'm in a mood to recognize this fact. I'm wearing burnt orange socks with my medium grey suit.

Here's a picture that shows the color of the shoes more accurately:

It looks okay without socks, but I'm hoping I can wear this to the office in the future, in which case I would need sensible socks. The yellowish-tan ones I'm wearing now don't cut it.

Maybe I'm not seeing it, maybe I'm wrong, maybe there is someone out there who can put up a great fit, but a grey OCBD just seems to go against everything an OCBD should be.

 

I would put order of acquisition as White, Light Blue, Pink, Medium Blue, Yellow, Light Green, Striped (blue or burgundy on white), Tartan.

 

I think I own two grey shirts, out of 500ish. One is a button down collar, but not an oxford that my dad got me as a monogrammed gift, the other is a Brooks Brothers semi-spread with super fine, close together gray stripes so it looks solid gray from 10 paces. I don't think I have ever worn either.

 

The problem I think is that anything that would look good with a gray shirt, would look good with gray trousers, and you don't want to match them.

 

*** Disclaimer *** I am heavily Northeast prep influenced, and OCBDs hold a special place in my heart, so I am heavily biased. I'm not sure many people look good in light gray shirts, I tend to think of kids that work in cell-phone stores who wear black pants, and a gray shirt three sizes too big with their spikey hair and square toed clunky shoes.

Thanks for your reply, I cant see a gray ocbd looking good with much besides jeans.

 

I'd wear a lilac/lavender ocbd before a gray ocbd anyday.

This might be a blessing in disguise, but I recently had the majority of my slacks and shirts stolen from my car as I was planning to take them to the dry cleaners. Anyways, been lurking around here, and it seems a lot of people are not fans of what I usually shop at. Business Casual clothes usually come from Kenneth Cole and Banana Republic.


I'm not going to lie, I'm not looking to necessarily spend 100 dollars per shirt. I don't have that kind of money. With that being said, I've always gone by what fits me best. I found the BR Tailored Slim pants fit well on me, and the Kenneth Cole shirts do as well.


But yeah, advice on some starter brands would be appreciated!

Try Modern Tailor.

 

There's nothing wrong with Banana Republic on sale, (of which they have many).

 

Brooks Brothers has a 3 for $225 deal on dress shirts, as well as a biannual Friends and Families sale where most stuff goes on sale for 25% off.

Woah, this Modern Tailor site is rather confusing for a guy like me. Do you guys have a FAQ or Noob Guide somewhere?

 

Oh, and how do you guys handle buying clothes if you're someone who says...works out? My weight can fluctuate in a 10 lb range depending on if I'm adding weight or shedding fat.

Honestly if you pair it with the right color tie/slacks/accessories, I'm betting that the gray would look awesome. Gray and jeans would look a little bland for me tbh.

If they fit well, looked good, and didn't break the bank, then what's the problem?

If you're up for it, maybe hitting up some thrift stores is a good idea? You can always have shirts darted and pants hemmed if they look good otherwise.

switched my style up to be dhv. I now wear, Hanes vneck, pea coat, trench coat, shirts, loafers, fingerless gloves, jeans, belts, chinos. All expensive clothes. I have black trench coat , and beige trench coat. got a nice multi layered bracelet. Also got an oxblood neckerchief. So is there any other item of clothing I'm missing that is DHV?
post #24249 of 29111

I'm looking at buying a few new pairs of dress shoes and was wondering what brands to stay away from and what brands are good value at different price points. I'm also interested in what to look for to get an idea on how to tell what shoes are better quality. Also, what should I look for as far as shoes that can be repaired easily and a cost that is inexpensive. I'm hoping to keep the shoes for several years.

 

I'm looking to spend around $300-400 per pair but would go to around $750 for the right pair/brand if it offered a significant upgrade and was still good value at that price. 

 

To give you an idea of the style/look I'm looking for I have included some examples.

 

1. A black cap toe similar to the Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/allen-edmonds-fifth-avenue-oxford/3039158?origin=category&contextualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=BLACK+CUSTOM+CALF&resultback=589).

 

2. Brown double monk straps, preferably with a cap toe. Something similar to the Alfred Sargent for J.Crew (http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/oxfords/PRDOVR~02801/02801.jsp), though I'm still not certain if that's the exact color I want.

 

3. Brown wingtips. I like the look of the Cole Haan Air Madison (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/cole-haan-air-madison-wingtip/3554461?origin=category&BaseUrl=Dress+Shoes) quite a bit, but I'm a little skeptical since the sole is not leather.

 

Thanks for the help!

Hanes v neck is not expensive lol

Peacocking is correct term, not dhv!

Not trolling. Want opinion on my dress sense/fashion.
post #24255 of 29111
You wear a t shirt and fingerless gloves. What dress sense?
