    Advice for a Young Man Just Starting Out...?

    I know much less about shoe construction than many on this forum. But these shoes look about the same quality as Johnston and Murphy. The appear to be unlined which is a major turn-off for me. I've had poor luck with the two pairs of CH's I bought in terms of reliability. They wore out far too...

    Winter Shoes

    How do the Dainite soles hold up with the snow/ice? My favorite pair of winter boots are C&J Chukka's with Dainite sole. I've had them 5 years and the the soles are in good shape, much better than any of my leather soles. I haven't taken care of the Cordovan as I should have, and they could...

    Winter Shoes

    Most of my shoes are leather soled - simply because they have the correct amount of friction with most surfaces and are also elegant. That said, leather soles are not optimal on snow/ice. I live in Iowa and we have snow/ice mix nearly half of the year round. If I am walking a good distance I...

    $1,000 suit

    I'd say figure out what's important to you. For some it may be cut, for some fit, for others brand consistency, and even others fabric. The more of these qualities you want the more you are going to pay. I have extremely sensitive skin and for me the most important aspect of a suit is fabric...

    and another thing! i noticed that many of you dislike black shoes, am i a bad person, just because i really LIKE them a lot??^^ greets eric Not a bad person, but you may change your mind as you get older. The allure of browns is in their complex hues. Black tends to be simple. I have both.

    Denim 101 for Men's Clothing

    Appreciate all the info in this thread. Looking for a suggestion for a new pair of jeans. I used to be a competitive dancer and have tremendous quads and a rather prominent bum. Unfortunately, after stopping, I put on a lot of weight and am wearing a size 38 dress pant (6'2, 240lbs). Do I have...

    This. It just kind of looks like you misplaced your suit pants.

    Rate this outfit

    I'm all about a jacket and jeans, but not with the vest...though even then the jacket is too much of a suit piece to fare well with the jeans. If I had to fix the outfit, I'd take off the jacket and rock the vest as best you could. lastly, I question the rolled up jeans? why?

    Suit jacket etiquette?

    I keep my jacket on, unless I'm dancing. The unfortunate truth is that most jackets are tailored for men having their arms down, and bunch up terribly when dancing in frame. In that case I think it's better to take the jacket off.

    Shirt & Vest

    If you wear a black vest/tie and white shirt - then you definately look like a waiter/valet. Add some flair, texture, color and you probably have the foundation of a good look.

    Feedback on Black Fleece Fit / Comments please

    It's a look alright, one I think is particularly unflattering. I question any trend that says any garment - should be smaller/larger/thinner/wider in general. Becuase they are missing the idea of proportion. For me the redeeming quality is that it no longer reminds one of a boring sack suit....
