    I'm looking for a new pair of semi-casual shoes (something to wear with jeans). Thoughts about these Sutor Mantellassi brown suede shoes? I don't know whether they're blake welted or not, but I can get them for roughly $250.

     It depends a bit on the shade of grey. Charcoal is definitely ok. Light grey is less ideal, but could still work. Basically, the darker the grey, the more formal it is. But this is really a moot point: if you only have one suit and the event is tomorrow evening: you don't have time to...

     I like your new tie, but this is a little safer. Also, for what sort of job are you applying? If you're trying to be an ibanker, the new tie could work. If you're trying to be an actuary, both outfits might be a bit too flashy.

    Also, thoughts about wearing a light linen or cotton suit jacket as a blazer? I know that it's generally considered a faux pas to wear a suit jacket without the suit pants (say, with jeans or something), but does that rule apply to light summer fabrics as well on jackets that include...

    Thoughts about including a brown corduroy blazer as part of my rotation? I am trying to build a wardrobe of blazers/sportcoats, and I know that the jcrew ludlow fits me well. I currently have a brown-grey herringbone tweed blazer and am looking for more. I know that brown cord isn't the...

    I'm looking to pick up my blazer game. I currently have one brown herringbone tweed blazer (nice for winter, but a bit too distinctive to wear with regularity / in warmer months), so I need a couple more. I'm looking for things that cover a lot of ground and are versatile -- e.g., ideally 1-3...

    Does anyone know Whitehouse Cox? I'm looking (low priority) for a new wallet, and stumbled on these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/201504048226?rmvSB=true#viTabs_0. I'm leaning towards Havannah Brown (which I think is on the right end in the picture), but like the other two dark ones as well. I...

    Official Black Friday Sale Alert Central

    I'm pretty new to all of this. Any suggestions among the sales for somewhere to find nice dress shirts in the $20-60 range? I'm looking for 1-2 shirts to wear with a tie (preferably white or light blue) and 1-2 shirts to wear in a dressy-casual environment with just slacks. Preferably, I...

    Any tips on dirt cheap dress belts? I'm looking <$35. Specifically, I'm looking for a tan-ish belt that'll match my walnut AE Strands, and a burgandy belt to match some old shell cordovan bluchers I picked up. These are both for my xmas list, so the price ceiling is fairly firm. Also, any...

    Looking for: wrist watch, white face + blue hands, mechanical, smaller face < $200

    I really like Rodina, but I think my wrists are too skinny for it (I read some reviews that said the face wears more like a 42mm or 44mm face).

    Looking for: wrist watch, white face + blue hands, mechanical, smaller face < $200

    Thanks all! I think I've narrowed it down to one of the two Cosmos models. I probably like the numerals more, but I'm a little bothered by the 6 being cut off. Thoughts?

    Looking for: wrist watch, white face + blue hands, mechanical, smaller face < $200

    Thanks! Any other thoughts? What do people think of the Orient Cosmos?

    Looking for: wrist watch, white face + blue hands, mechanical, smaller face < $200

    I love the seiko spark but that's obviously not an option. Are there other watches you'd recommend? I'd like to wear it on a leather band (probably brown, but that'll depend a bit on the type of watch) as a mostly-everyday work/play hybrid. I have skinny wrists so a giant face is a no-no...

     Your jacket length is fine. In fact, IMO, any shorter and you're looking at a jacket that's going to become dated-looking pretty quickly. Your sleeves are too long. They should end at about the break of your wrist (where your thumb stops curving in to your arm), and these go past on both...

    I just bought these impulsively. Thoughts? They're my first pair of shell cordovan shoes. What colors would they go well with? And how formal are they? E.g., should I pair with a suit? With slacks? With jeans? Thanks!

    Hey all! I am looking for a pair of dressy-casual shoes, something ideally on the level of walnut AE strands -- e.g., a shoe that you could wear to work with nice slacks as well as to dress up jeans after work. My budget's about $125 -- although ideally I'd like to stick closer to $100 (and...
