If $100 is the budget, try the Allen Edmonds shoe bank for things in your size.  Alternatively, Indian-made Loakes are about $160, and a bit more sturdy.

 

But this is a glued-together piece of crap that will be no different whether you pay $20 or $200.

 

Yeah I realized that when I saw the picture on my computer instead of on the phone.

Anyway, a three button will always have a smaller piece of shirt real estate on show, that's kind of the point.  But the other plus to that is that, unlike a two button or worse (never do it!), a DB, it looks good when completely  undone.  The longer vertical lines of the two sides are flattering.  I'd say wear a slightly narrower wool tie, a contrasting pocket square, and rock the hell out of it.


Listen to this man. There is nothing wrong with a 3 button, especially if it's 3 roll 2. And if you find a piece you like that fits well at a good price, you'll figure out ways to wear it if you have it.

Damnit! I like that one too. That silk is sold out on Sam Hober and they're not sure if they'll reweave it. I let it stay on my wishlist too long.

Nothing wrong with the larger, but neither would be my first choice.

I totally agree with you and can envision very nice outfits like that. Currently I don't think I feel comfortable enough to wear such a combination however (bow ties are seldom worn in the Netherlands and are mostly viewed upon as being totally outdated).

I think that's wise. If you're not sure, pay attention to that indecision and don't buy the coat. Above all, you have to feel comfortable in your decision, and it should be a warning sign if you feel you have to convince yourself that something's okay. And you're on the right track re your "basics" comment. Get yourself some classic odd jackets first--a blue blazer, camel hair, etc.--and then begin to branch out into more unique items. Good luck!

For some reason I've really warmed to stripes

Also will probably get:

If it's the color you're after, I just gifted my boss a J.Crew silk tie that looked like the one on the right.

top pair for me.

Same. Top pair.

Where can I get some good quality cuff links inexpensively? Think like $30 or less. I had to loan a pair to my dad for my wedding, and, as he has several French cuff shirts now, (I think 3) he needs a pair. Toggle back is preferable, as he would never bother with double sided, but rather change his shirt.

Bonus points if I can buy them locally in Vancouver.
