Tobias, considering your current wardrobe and usual attire, I would say a nice pair of rosewood or mahogany brogues (wingtips or adelaides?) might be versatile enough for you. Most of the English makers have a nice range in these styles.

Not sure if serious....

You do realise that sweating is the body's cooling mechanism right? Under the armpits is where sweating normally occurs so removing hair from that area isn't going to fix things...

-Black longwings (rarely worn)
-Tan bluchers (cheap beaters)

Note that I don't wear suits at all at the moment (just jacket, odd trou and tie), and plan to only rarely in the future, and that I don't really like black shoes. I'm also starting to wear more casual jackets on Fridays and weekends.

I'm thinking dark brown calf bluchers? I was considering burgundy or dark brown longwings, but not sure how much I would wear such a 'heavy' shoe in the summer, so maybe this should be next year's purchase. Was also considering dark brown calf or suede loafers, but after not fitting into a pair of C&J Sydney in my size the other day due to my high insteps, I'm leery of ordering a pair online...

 

Dark brown bluchers or wingtips (bluchers), maybe NST?. I'll get those photos for you tomorrow of the Meermin's, but they are a burgundy, rather than brown.

Ah sorry, didn't know.

I don't know if they will be to your taste, but these Sutor Mantellassi loafers from Ian Daniels at Shop the Finest are an excellent deal:

The Fark?

It can reduce sweating, that's for sure.

 

I sweat a lot, but having an aluminium-free deoderant and an undershirt prevents almost all of my issues.

Mixed results on the internet. Some people believe that shaving will reduce odour and the amount of liquid you sweat.

 

I wouldn't have posted it, if it hadn't of been discussed before.

This always blows my mind. People say the cure for sweating is an undershirt and the sweat wont penetrate the shirt you actually care about. But isn't it completely illogical to wear MORE layers when it's hot? I tried to wear an undershirt last spring while I was walking to work and it was the most uncomfortable, heat-stricken walk I've ever done. Felt like I was going to faint.

That's been my experience - there's no layer of hair there so it's cooler and the sweat has no hair to cling to.

Do you guys ever worry that some of the suits you wear aren't CBD enough? 

 

From what I can see of the courts most wear charcoal and black. Ties are almost strictly flat or some kind of non offensive print.

Surely this depends on your working environment. From your second sentence, you seem to be making the assumption that we're either in the legal fraternity or regularly brought up on various charges smile.gif

 

I'm not and I wear everything from odd jackets/odd trousers to a three piece suit without any issue.

I assume this isn't par for the course, so is there some trick to getting the skin dry enough for this not to happen, or am I perhaps just unusually sensitive to the stuff? Any suggestions welcome.

Try this, Mrs db buys it for me.

I have never seen that thread before, I laughed more than anything else on SF. Manton's posts are gold.

post #20384 of 57946

Manton is from the US, so be careful. Just remember, the practitioners you've seen haven't thought about what they're wearing, let alone formed a view that anything other than charcoal or black is not CBD enough. They probably just decided to wear what they see others wearing, or what the sales assistant told them looks good. Even if they have thought about it, they don't have the same knowledge and experience that we have obtained through reading, looking at pictures, and actually wearing other things.

 

Where do we draw the line? Just keep going until someone tells us to stop? I have seen senior practitioners and silks wearing light colours, loud ties, and brown shoes. But I haven't seen anyone dressed as well as some members here are, nor have I seen any whiz-bang patterns, dub monks, peak lapels or patch pockets making an appearance just yet.

 

Side point - didn't you say you were studying for Contract Law? Is worrying about what to wear to Court a real issue for you?

Re: suits I think its best to start conservative and when you find your feet then up the ante. Black for formal events and funerals, navy and greys make good cbd bases.

Re: sweat. I think shaving reduces odour and increases airflow but not reduce actual sweating. You also run the risk of looking quite feminine with no underarm hair lol. I tried a few everyday antiperspirants and find the rollons work better. Had good success with nivea 48hr "extra dry" or something. Its a blue bottle with red text
