Well said, Spoo.

What I left behind:

Spoo Alert! Any value in this? It was $24.99 and needed cleaning. But it was oddly appealing since it was somewhat puffy from the thinsulate stuff in it. Tagged XL and looked it.



Now this was beautiful - heavy-duty, perfect for winter - but not something I needed and I wasn't sure about flipabilty at what they were asking. Happy to proxy - it's $49.99.



I'm not a shoe expert - I know the basics. This wasn't in terribly good shape but was well constructed. Labels on the insoles were gone. Can anyone identify from what remains on the sole:




What I came home with:

I love waxed cotton. Ben Sherman, dark blue M-65-type jacket, tagged L. Perfect for fall.
PM if you're interested (on hold for now but that's very tentative).


Giorgio Armani boots, size 7, Made in Italy. Will absolutely rock with new laces.
As I was going through the overcoats my son (grade 7) took a shine to them so probably unavailable.

I agree with this, but how much is based on allowances for the impetuousness of youth? I read Ian's intent to avoid that.

Based on what Ian said he had, I'd do a navy blazer, gray trou, white shirt. I'd then take one of the conservative ties with me in my inside jacket pocket (preferably rolled, to avoid creasing). If the consensus seems to be to wear ties, I can slip it on casually, and make it seem like "hey, I always intended to wear it but I didn't want to strangle myself on the way there!" Now, the shoes present a harder problem. My inclination is to go black loafers over brown cap toes, since the oxfords will be way too formal for the gray trou and navy sc. If it were me, that's what I'd do. But there are others on here who know better than me, so I defer to them.

 

Agreed, all good advice — and advice Ian should heed. I guess I was just erring on the side of, "Hey, he's 17 years old and dressing hella nice compared to the way I looked at that point." But, to your point, my comment will neither teach nor inform Ian who apparently desires both. You're right.

Age has nothing to do with dressing well in a proper social function. You can dress however the devil cares for day settings and parties and what not, blame it on the impetuousness of youth or rebellion. But if you are attending something that has an impact on your future career and lays groundwork for something that directly affects monetary gain, do your best.
This means : do NOT roll your pant cuffs. Have them hemmed at the proper length. Make sure everything you are wearing is pressed. Dont wear anything you have seen in the peacock thread. Play the colors safe - stick with a white or blue shirt (pressed), and a striped or solid tie. Do not wear a pocket square. Wear a solid blue or pinstripe suit or a security guard look. Fit is paramount, you should by no means look like you are wearing your fathers clothing or the clothing of a dead/outgrown man you found with a yellow tag stapled through the lapel on it. Labels are meaningless for this as the odds of someone asking you if the spalla camicia on your jacket is Attolini or Isaia happening are as slim as finding a Rolex in the pocket of a thrifted pair of RLPL pants. Wear your best fitting outfit, be clean shaven, and take the knowledge you have and skill set you have acquired this far in your education and let your personality do the talking for you. Many times you see people wearing the most expensive clothes in the world and they dont resonate. They have no gravitas. You need to feel confident in well fitting, good looking clothing. You wont be confident in an ill fitting Kiton suit, this I promise you. Now go shave, clean that nasty fucking dribble thats going down your mirror, press your shirt, brush your teeth, practice your best movie star smile, and go out and get the dopest chick in the room and impress some politicians. Resume thrifting the following day.

thank you spoo that is some great advice worship2.gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

I definitly will not be wearing that fit I posted when I meet the politicians and have debates, that fit was for the casual lunch before hand.

let me post what I was planning on wearing for the debates, PLEASE NOTE THIS IS BEFORE TAILORING, I plan to have the sleeves and pant legs lengthened, and the waist nipped. the pants are also not as skinny as they look they are classic straight fit brooks brothers. I will also probably not wear this shirt but my other shirts are at the dry cleaners

 

also I will wear a more dressy watch (batteries need to be replaced)

It's tradition Chinese something along the lines of "army officer grass green mixed fabric short jacket". Length = 67 cm. Chest circumference = 114 cm. Model number = 4. Can't read the last one. Hope this helps. You got any more pics in detail?

 

Oh wait, I think the last one refers to the factory that manufactured the jacket.
