    I finally got a pair of nice boots. Love the fit, but I was thinking about putting a thin rubber sole on them. The original soles have been worn a bit, with about a weeks worth of wear. I can take them to a local cobbler next week and I was wondering what options I have and what you think would work the best.

    Anyone have any experience with the Lands End cotton sweaters? Thinking about buying a couple with the private sale.

    Well it depends. If you want to be trendy and up to the minute then might as well go with 1 button. But the suit would only have a lifetime of 2 years max (some would say even less).

    Iv seen a number of briefcases in thrift shops that have loose thread , or the thread holding a side pocket together has just gone , they are so cheap and I am wondering if i were to get one a Leather specialist could possibly stitch it back up?

    Im abit of a Rookie so any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Peak+1-2B+regular width lapels = classic
    Peak+2B+thin lapels = somewhat trendy, but will have some holding power unless super skinny lapels
    Peak+1B+super thin lapels = really cool looking, but short shelf life, ie 2-3 years max.

    that being said I love 1B+Peak, I think it's really sharp. But the skinny lapel thing will come and go.

    White shirt, red tie.
    Blue and black, [​IMG] Depends on the blue, but you're really have to going to sell me on that one...

    Black will go with most any blue as long as it's not navy. Personally I don't think black sweaters are at all versatile though, impossible to match with any dark pant, but to each his own.

    My brothers wedding is coming up and I need something to wear. It will be in southern Texas in the middle of September so it will likely be hot. I never wear suits or anything like that, the most dressy I ever get is an oxford and some chinos so I know nothing about what is appropriate. Please to be dressing me for this occasion.

    the darker the better?

    Generally Brown shoes should never be worn with Black Suits. Unless you have absolutely no other alternative. Even something as Dark as Dark Brown or Dark Oak won't look very good if the suit is black. With Navy they look great, but with black it just seems disconcerting - it draws the eyes naturally to your feet and sticks it there.

    If you do decide go with Brown shoes and Black suit, then make sure your shirt and tie combination can pull the eyes back up to your face. It is truly just easier to wear black shoes.

    Best place to start is your brother and his bride-to-be. It's their wedding and what they think is appropriate is what matters. You may receive responses here according you dress from odd trousers and shirt to a suit; but we don't know anything about wedding couple nor their desired formality (or casualness) for the event. So it's best to have a sincere talk with them, especially the bride.

    Anyone know where I can find this tie in a silk twill? Something around 3.75"-4" so in width would be preferable.
