    Experience with Billy Reid quality/fit?

    Does anyone have the roper boots? What is the width like? They look a little wider than the other BR footwear.

    Work Holiday Party - Cocktail Attire

    In a Chicago Museum on a Saturday night you can wear any of the options you listed. Wear what you feel most comfortable in - that tends to come through more than forcing something to conform with what you think you should wear. I agree with the tuxedo comments. Don't try to fake it.

     The black or suede? Kidding. Alden makes nice boots that look a lot like that. I believe you can get them at J Crew these days for about $500. it's a popular style, so there should be multiple options at lesser price points. LL Bean signature has one, regular LL Bean has a Katahdin...

    I've got a black/dark charcoal BB cashmere turtle neck sweater in the back of my closet somewhere. I've been thinking of taking it out when it gets cold. It's not super fitted if I remember, but is fine under a jacket. I think I'm in the market for a chunkier turtle neck. Maybe Irish knit...

    Next jacket?

    I'd go brown tweed. Corduroy an option too. I don't love the charcoal odd jacket, but some do.

     I saith keep this one as advertised - "So, just to be clear: Tie? OK. No tie? OK. Square/No square? Yes. Pents/No Pents: Well, hopefully pents, but I suppose that's up to you." - and make s brown suit contest for next week. Suits have pents.

    Brown or black shoes with this navy suit?

     This would be my vote as well. Also, if you are investing in nice shoes, think about where else you will wear them. You will likely find brown or oxblood more versatile.

    Tie basics 101

     A lot of this comes down to personal taste. I like stripes, but some would call them "schoolboy ties." You can't go wrong with the Brooks Brothers #1 stripe in blue or red. Oh yeah, don't buy a black tie until you have about a dozen others. Navy will be just as versatile and not make...

    Classic Mens Shops - A List

    In the Boston area I'd add Mr. Sid in Newton and Drinkwaters in Cambridge. In Atlanta I second Sid Mashburn, and I think Sid opened a store in Houston recently (or will soon, I can't remember). This store for me sets the standard for what a men's clothing store should be. A well edited...

    Iron Heart denim

    How does IH fit compare to 3 Sixteen or APC. I think the rise is higher, but does the wast fit true to size or size down a bit. I'm looking at one of the 25 oz models and won't be able to try it on.

    Your most complimented suit?

    Blue chalk stripe Polo (made in Italy). It is tailored quite well, and the pattern get's noticed. More than one person has asked if it was bespoke.

    Nope. Was in NYC over the Labor Day weekend - Purchases at Bergdorf, Brooks Brothers, J. Press, and Barneys Warehouse Sale.

    Can the Navy Suit, White Shirt, No Tie Look Be Saved?

     I agree with this. The suit with no tie has become the new business look - not just business casual. I work in a conservative financial services company and suit with no tie is the winter dress code (ties when clients visit). From Memorial Day to Labor Day we go full business casual...
