    I've bought a very dark navy suit, white shirt and black shoes for my wedding in September. Looking for recommendations for a tie that would work. I'm struggling to pick one. Any ideas?

    I don't think there's a 'rule' per se, but I like to size my belts so they fit the third hole (counting from the last hole, i.e. the one you would wear if your belt is too short). I don't like wearing belts that have a very long or very short end part.

    Hi guys, how do you deal with corn on your foot?
    I get corn from time to time (usually in summer) on outside of my pinkie toes, rendering certain shoes unwearable in summer - and particularly annoying as frequently affects one foot only.
    While I can buy things to get rid of the corn - do you guys have any remedies on a day to day basis, e.g. putting padding inside these shoes at the pinkie toe area / using a shoe tree to expand the pinkie toe area?

    Thanks!

    Should be aiming for the third hole; can you buy a belt where you can cut it yourself for the right sizing (i.e. the buckle is not stitched onto the belt)?

    A good quality pair of tan loafers. Use neutral polish and over the next 10 years they will acquire a wonderful patina and pair well with cream linen trousers and other summer wear. This patina is different from the manually applied ones that were hot in the last few years. Enduring the blandness of the new tan loafer for a while is part of earning it, there is a bittersweet quality to the endeavour...

    You should aim to have the middle hole be the one that is used the most.

    Q: Hi, I have two questions on a pair of loafers. First, what's the purpose of the raised seam on the heel counter? Second, what's the purpose of the raised black leather sole under the toe box? Thanks

    No show socks questions:

    Is Falke still the best no show socks at the moment for going "sockless" with leather shoes in the summer? Would you recommend going with sand/beige, black or white color for these? I'm concerned the sand/beige color look a bit "feminine" in case the socks peek through at certain angles.

    Thanks.

    Can't afford Falke myself, so I go with Polo, Uniqlo, Moc Socks.

    I prefer to try and match the socks to the color of the shoes as much as I can. Not really concerned about the feminine look. I would only use white ones with sneakers, unless you're wearing white shoes.
