post #26371 of 53811

Got it from the armoury. 

 

I half a sized up as i am normally a UK 7.5/8 so i went with the 8. i know a lot of people have trouble with the simpson last but i love the look of it.

Im now saving my pennies for the next shoe- possibly a boot that i can wear with suits/casually. I used to wear businss attire once every few weeks but have moved to a job where i wear it everyday. Makes it hard- need to add things gradually but also need to wear stuff everyday!

or

Is what i am thinking. ( i know the blue might be a bit much but i reckon i could just about pull it off.

Yeah, it's not that I want that look, just interested to know if it was an "option" on MTM suits as I hadn't heard of people talking about that before when they discuss pocket configurations.

Both of them look great! I think the burgundy would be a tad more versatile.

I had a strong suspicion that you knew that already, but it's difficult to be certain of these things on the internet!

Nice boots...a little heavy for business wear though? Also, they're both going to be tricky to find appropriate belts for.

Which one are you getting and where are you getting if you do not mind sharing.

Ive got the robert last captoes on today and ive got the brown punched simpsons. Metal toe taps recommended!

Is this something you can request from the maker? What do you all think of this look v. the PJ look where it's somewhat hidden? I didn't even go with the wide lapels option on my PJ - I imagine even more would be covered if I had?

*edit* See jason's fit pic. above for an example of the covered by lapel look

Don's suit has a skinny lapel but im not a fan - dont move your pocket position otherwise it will look odd

 

 

PS - my 3sixteens just arrived!

My work so it isnt really "business" but rather smart professional. i reckon i could get away with it compared with the worn out hush puppies i see on some peoples feet. As for the belts.... m goodness this upgrading your wardrobe business takes its toll on the wallet. Which by the way i need to upgrade as well.

Anyone have any experiences with Barker, namely Barker Black, shoes for sizing? I'm a UK9.5e/f and wanted to know if they were roughtly the same as most C&J 9.5

 

I'm assuming there is no place in Melbourne where I can try these on (just plain Barkers even)...

Have you tried them on yet? Was the sizing right?

Right, I get you, that's sort of my environment as well. Still, I think I would opt for something simpler, not to mention cheaper and more comfortable in the warmer months, like a Loake chukka in brown.

For belts, try http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/accessories/Belts for both blue and burgundy - remember, they don't need to exactly match. Just get them in the right ballpark and you'll be fine.

Jeans are the freaking hardest thing to workout size and cut on the internet, out of any piece of clothing. Then shoes.
