And as for a wedding - definitely do not wear.

Wearing them to a wedding is an idea I hate,
even if your socks match the color worn by your date.
Listen to your brother's rants
and do not wear those awful pants.

Best. Post. Ever.  I laughed hard, and then I had to read it out loud to my wife so that she could share my joy.

hey all, i'm new here! 

I'm 18 and im trying to restock my wardrobe. I like wearing chinos/dark jeans with a belt and tucked in button-up, similar to this:

I also like to have my clothes fit me very well (like slim fit tight) - I think it looks much more crisp. Can anyone recommend me good white oxford button-up shirts that fit tightly, and don't have a chest pocket? 

 

Thanks! 

 

Also, more generally, what kinds of looks fall under "classy casual"? That's not the term for it but I'm not sure where to begin.

Dear Members,

 

I am currently comparing several shirt makers and I discovered a "life" and "basin" measurement taken from the shirt. Has anyone else come across these measurement terms before?

I suspect the life measurement is taken around the waist and the basin is taken around the shirt where the side seam meets the bottom hem.

Cheers,
HPH

Is there something like an "ongoing bespoke projects" thread? Somewhere you share your joy and anticipation?
post #28251 of 29141
I think the unfunded liabilities thread is the closest to that, and it's not very close ...

I like the idea a lot, though, and it probably would not be an overly cluttered thread as there aren't many ongoing projects at any point in time.

If you are translating any of those terms from Italian "life" is in fact "waist."

Is a DB navy suit with peak lapels (obviously) appropriate for interviews?

Even conservative ones?

I would say especially so. Really when wearing that it's got to be more about yourself and ability. If you are going to be self conscious about it though don't do it.

Nah, I just outgrew both the suits that I had that were appropriate for grad school interviews. One is definitely too small now and the other could be altered enough to work, but I was seeing if I could make something else happen.

 

Thanks for the info!

Aren't you applying for medical school? If so, academic physicians can be pretty conservative. It's not life or death, but I would recommend avoiding a DB suit if you have a decent SB suit in navy or grey.

Since you, in a subsequent post, mention that it's for graduate school interviews, I'd say you'll be perfectly fine.

Grad school interviews are not like being interviewed by a committee of the US Senate on CNN, or even like being interviewed by a conservative law firm looking to fill an opening for an experienced litigator. Sure, getting into graduate school can be tough, and the competition intense. I get that. But that's not the key point here.

Interviewers understand that college kids tend not to wear suits on a daily basis, and are often broke or near broke. Interviewers will not care overmuch about you presenting yourself as a successful and accomplished professional. So long as you don't look like an absolute loser, you'll be okay. You'll be judged on your academic record, whatever work experience you may have had, perhaps by a particularly relevant letter of reference or extracurricular activity. And by whether you seem at least somewhat articulate.

Basically, wear a suit. Have it fit you tolerably well. No visible stains. And don't wear sneakers with it.

Do that, and you're home free on the "Is my suit acceptable?" thing, when it comes to grad school interviews. Really. Whether the suit's lapels are 1/2" wider than is currently fashionable, or whether your shirt is 20% polyester, or even if there's a dimple in your necktie, are very, very unlikely to matter significantly in a grad school interview.

I have a pair of british tan monks with a brass buckle. I usually wear them with my similarly colored belt which has a brass buckle. However the metal on my tie bar is a brushed silver and my watch is silver.

 

Problem?

 

Leave it as is or swap belt buckle to silver and only the monk buckles would be brass colored?
