    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No problem man. I completely understand. One more recommendation--before you spend too much money, hang around, and lurk. Your tastes will change VERY fast. Do you graduate this fall? Or in the spring?

    Quote: This fall - two weeks from now, actually.

    Quote: This is very true. However, I feel like most of what I'm buying now is core basics - dress shirts in standard patterns and the like. So hopefully they won't change THAT much!

    Hi All,

    Where can I find RTW dress shirts online with high(er) collars, similar to Angel Bespoke or other Italian inspired brands?

    Thanks

    Haha it just came to me. Probably would be less tongue in cheek if I was speaking of Japan!

    So then the quality probably isn't that great?

    Not at all. I really don't put that much credence into country of origin being the end-all be-all.

    I would not bank on a used suit for an interview. And that color of grey is certainly not ideal either. Something substantially darker / more somber would be more appropriate. Stylistically--well, that is up to you.

    I just bought a pair of boat shoes (Sperry Topsiders) with a deep discount . They are maybe 1/2-1 size too big. However, if I tighten the laces the shoes fit comfortably in the heel, but a bit uncomfortable on top where the bottom of the laces meet the top of my feet. Should I return them or should I use them with with tightened laces? Does insoles help with shoes that are too big?

    It's not like Sperry Topsiders are some rare, exotic footwear, such that if you don't hold onto these you'll likely never come across another example of Sperry Topsiders ever again.

    So return them, and if you want a pair of Topsiders, buy a pair in your size. Life is too short to put up with the wrong size shoes.

    Any of those shoes will be fine with jeans.

    Out of the foregoing, I think all of them are appropriate (note, not "ideal") with jeans except:

    I am not a fan of wearing Oxfords and jeans. It is an atrocious look, in my opinion.

    I am not really a fan of any of the shoes that you linked to, but they certainly will "work" with jeans.

    Maybe you could give us a budget, and we could offer suggestions.

    Return, don't wear shoes that are too big.

    Hi, my budget is around £100, so that's more or less $155-160.
