    I wouldnt think so seeing as though one of their services is replacing the soles. As long as the cobbler doesn't screw up the rubber half sole, you should be fine.

    You should probably post this in the tailors thread (http://www.styleforum.net/t/265924/the-tailors-thread-fit-feedback-and-alteration-suggestions) but if you were asking me (and i am no expert) it looks long to me and the button stance seems a little low.

    According to the AE sales associate I spoke to, this will not disqualify you from recreafting.

    My gratitude, your advice is helpful because I haven't bought this Ferragamo belt. May be I would buy another one, like this:

    I think this BB belt is formal and it's not flamboyant :D

    Looking for a suit and found some Joseph Abboud suits with a pretty good discount. What are y'all's opinions on that brand?

    Id imagine it would fall somewhere between 100-300 bucks. Ive never paid attention to quality or build when ive boot boots / dress shoes in the past, so id imagine id paid 50-100 bucks.

    Affordable as in taking in account quality and price. Good bargain / deal ect.

    I've got a problem with tiny holes appearing. They've been showing up about a week into owning a new pair. At first I thought it might be too much Renovator but on I tried using only black cream & wax on a new pair and it still happened. I don't think I polish too hard or for too long. They are size 44 and I am using the large Woodlore Epic trees but I did try the medium size and they didn't even reach the heel. I would say the trees are snug and come out fairly easily. My feet can't be stretching them either and it's strange that they appear in different areas of the shoe (like the back of the heel).
    Basic regime is shoes off, trees in, dust with cloth & water. I really do not know why they appear.
    Please advise.

    Allen Edmonds is the standard entry level shoe. New are about $300, or you can usually get seconds for about $200-$250.

    Cheap suit, nothing to write home about. But, if it fits you well and is very cheap, could be a decent beater suit.

    Pocket square without a tie? Yay or nay? Does it make a difference if it is with a suit or sport coat?

    (presuming one would wear a suit without a tie... I know some/many object to that)

    I vote yay, especially with a sport coat (see the ever dapper alan flusser below) but i do not think i would wear a suit without a tie. If you do i still vote yay for a pocket square.

    ebay, look for allen edmonds or even some english brands like Loake or Church's and you get an almost new pair for $100 and under.
