    Are you incredibly in-shape?

    (Brooks Brothers Irish linen shirts are really nice. At least mine are, though a little mysterious at times. One's stiff and unyielding, the other's soft and eminently foldable. Same cleaners.)

    Hi all,

    Looking for some help with shoe selection for my wedding in July in Punta Cana, i have a natural linen suit with white linen shirt.. From pictures i have seen of other weddings i am debating not wearing a tie nor tucking in my shirt and going for a more casual look.

    However i am stumped with my shoe selection, i have gone out looking at boat shoes, drivers and moccasins. While i have seen some really nice moccasins they are either to close to the colour of the suit or blueish grey. any help on selection would really be great!!

    What is everyone's impression on the pants break in this picture? I have my own impression but I wanted to see what people's first thoughts were. Thanks!

    Club Monaco polos are $22 right now, which is a steal IMO.

    well as much as I hate to admit it as well, you may be right. have to see in person and get on sale because I'm pretty sure most of his shit is made overseas and hopefully not China ($95 for MK is silly). the best part of that link however is that guy's description of Michael Kors :lol:

    Hey Pronxs,

    This suit looks great for an interview. I wouldnt worry about the color being too light. In fact, correct me if my eyesight is blurred, but it does seem like more of a charcoal grey. In any event, a grey suit is always a sure bet for an interview, as is a black. Personally, I prefer to go with greys. A blue shirt with a grey suit and a yellow tie always looks very smart for an interview, and if you want to really make a statement, wear a red tie - but again, that is more of a power statement. Hope this helps.

    Can I wear this belt with these shoes? These are my first Allan Edmonds shoes - Jeffersons. The belt was custom made and was supposed to be dark brown (described on the site as "dark brown is close to being black"). Any input is appreciated![​IMG]

    I would return the belt to the seller for misrepresenting it. I don't think it matches the shoes.

    What makes the fabric casual?

    I think the fabric is way too loud for a business shirt.

    You can wear them together, they're close enough.

    Dark colour, busy patten, large-scale window-pane. All of these things are casual features.
