As someone who lives in the tropics but is soon moving to a colder land...

1) What winter-suitable shoes go with suits and nice jeans?
2) What's the most versatile outer coat/great coat color?

Cheers

Want a $40 to $60 medium-weight gray sweater to wear with jeans and chinos. Which of these would you choose?

^^ I've always steered clear of cotton sweaters & stick with wool. I hear the cotton blends stretch too much.

Thanks for your feedback. So that's a vote for the first option posted, then?

Where can I buy a slim fitting pea coat (I'm 5'11 @ 130 lbs). I bought one from Urban Outfitters last year, but I want a diff colored one and they don't have any decent ones atm.

Good day to you all. I just registered here as I'm hoping to start gradually altering my wardrobe to have a bit more class and refinement, something I've wanted to do for a while but just seemed to keep getting put off. I have a black corduroy jacket which I really like but I never wear it as it doesn't seem to go with jeans, I'd rather get something other than jeans anyway so I was thinking of buying some fairly smart trousers and a waistcoat to go with it but I'm not really sure what sort of colours or styles to go for. I read somewhere that if an outfit of a jacket and trousers isn't a suit it shouldn't look like one from a distance - so the colours should be complementary but not look too similar, but in the case of a waistcoat too should there be any matching between at least two of the three pieces? I was thinking possibly grey flat front trousers and black pinstripe waistcoat (with the back cloth the same as the front - no shiny silk)? But I really have no idea and am totally open to suggestions. Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. All the best, Paul.

Hey guys,

I'm looking to purchase my first pair of cordovan shoes. Here's what I'm looking at, but I would like to know what other options I have around this price point

Can't go wrong with those,great shoes and you can't really get cordovan much cheaper,they rarely go on sale. I think you can get Ralph Lauren Darltons around $500 right now.

Sorry for the noob question, but between the two, which is a better quality shoe?

Darltons.

Yes, but Aldens are just fine. Darltons probably have a better finish.

Nitpicky point, but the Aldens are a longwing, and the Darltons are a shortwing; also something to consider.
