    Typically people have a shoe repair store install them. At least here in the U.S.

    ^Exactly

    Idk what the sole is like on the bottom of your shoes though. Are they true slippers with the bottoms being like the soft leather uppers? If so your options are limited.

    if i want a versatile winter jacket that wouldn't look out of place at the bar nor at work (business/business casual - no tie/jacket), where am i looking?

    caveat: OTHER than a peacoat or duffle on a budget of $300.

    if you wear a blazer/suit jacket semi-casually (e.g. derby, pants, shirt, no tie), can you get away without showing shirt cuff and without pocket square?

    1. Pocket square is optional anyways, some guys don't even like them.

    2. You can certainly 'get away' with not showing cuff, and 90% of people wouldnt even care/notice. but if you want to get technical, that's ill fitting and needs to be tailored, cuff should always be showing (assuming we're talking about 'normal' dress wear).

    With the shit I see people wearing on a daily basis, apparently you can pretty much "get away" with anything. Whether that has anything to do with being well dressed is questionable.

    Of course you can get away with it. Do you want to is the question.

    Just to follow up on what I asked earlier.

    I don't think my marsell require polishing but how would I know? They were not polished when they first came. I've been reading many shoe care instructions and part of the process seems always to involve polishing.

    To be honest I was thinking only to moisturise my shoes and keep them protected from damp and stuff like that... Would a horse hair brush be necessary either?

    Then no.
    I'm not sure what marsells are, but you should be fine just moisturizing most shoes. I would still recommend getting a horsehair brush to clean off debris at the end of the day. I guess you could substitute a damp cotton cloth for it though.

    I was thinking of pairing a royal oxford shirt with an ancient madder tie, but something seems off about shiny shirt with matte tie. Am I right?

    These are the marsell slip on shoes I have. They are baby calf leather (I think oiled) and intentionally distressed in some places as an artisan peice for uniqness

    Suggest a place to buy white crew neck t shirts.

    I am currently getting mine from walmart, they are $3 a pop ($6 for a 2 pack George brand) and a bit thin. I want something a bit more substantial, what is the next step up?

    Is the 501CT leg opening really 13.75" (0.75" smaller than 511)?
