    Please let me know if there is a better topic to ask this as I'm new here...

    I'm looking for a jacket (or alternatively a suit) in a material similar to the ones below. The first one is Zegna, the second Tagliatore, neither brands that I would usually wear but I've gotten obsessed with a pattern like this. I would get either one of these if I found it in my size, but I haven't so I'm looking for other ideas.

    Any idea as to the most appropriate ways to wear a pair of black brogues? I have a nice pair from Sanders and Sanders, but am in need of some tips as to colours/suits and occasions to wear them with.

    Any ideas appreciated. Thank you!

    Go look at a great online store like Axels of Aspen, look for shoes similar to yours...

    I tend to wear them at the office with a crisp white shirt, charcoal flannel suit and a burgundy tie. It's boring but does the job at the office...Navy suit, light blue shirt and madder tie is another choice.

    I find my black McAllisters' to not be super versatile but great for the office, especially in Canada (i.e. North America) where they are kind of seen as a quintessential business shoe.

    I'm a college student and I really like the look of cardigan with tie (really want to use my fun ties), but I'm debating whether I should get shawl collar cardigan or Cardigan for versatility? Any color recommendations? I'm thinking of cream, grey and beige or burgundy.

    For those watching Designated Survivor episode 17, 'The Ninth Seat', the Abe Leonard reporter character wears a rather boring tie I'm fond of, blue motifs on a brown background. Anyone know its origin?

    Just saw a corneliani tux with a tag that says "export usa". Does that indicate a lack of quality in comparison to the "normal" Cornelianis?

    I'd start with darker colors (navy, grey, brown) as they can dress up and down more easily. Versatility-wise I think a non-shawl might be better, although shawl is a classic collar type too, it is having its time in the spotlight right now and might be off trend soon, so a regular collar might be better, because it's neither on trend or off trend right now.

    I have navy crew neck and other color for different style of sweater you mentioned. Wouldn't it be too boring or finding wearing the same look over and over? I might get one shawl collar and the rest without collar.

    As for brown cardigan I assume it's chocolate brown?

    Cardigan vs crew neck is enough of a difference to me.

    I bought one on the Hanger Project for about 50$ during their Christmas sale, other than that try B&S or Ebay.
