To be quite honest - the big thing I've learned over the years of being parts of various forums for goods - getting a reputation is worth more than some cash early on. So I would rather be a bit generous now, and have people see I am not some tool than just come out the gates trying to make every penny I can.
Now, that's not to say I have some objection to making some extra money, I am just getting into this all myself and have an all-but-empty wardrobe, so the cash will help, and hopefully will come later.
Excellent attitude - you'll fit in, but just watch yourself for those sharks mentioned.
Anyway, on to a thrift fit...
Found this coat today:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This is just a rough draft: I don't have cufflinks in; I have to find my silver/mop shirt studs; I will wear socks; and I only put on my actual tux pants just so I would be wearing pants for the picture.
Now, what color tartan (tux) pants would you wear with this coat? I what I would wear in my mind, but am curious to see what others say. Also, if anyone has any, that would be great.
