    Quick shoe collection question, some help for a newb. Right now I've got:

    -Black shell lace up Alden Indy's
    -Black shell BBBF longwings
    -Color 8 calf Alden shortwings

    In the PSA thread there's a 30% off Amazon shoes deal going on, and I'm thinking about buying the AE Fifth Ave Captoe in brown, to add a lighter color to my feet. They're $226 total, should I pull the trigger on this deal? I'm thinking yes for some diversification from the darkness but I'd love to hear some input. Thanks!

    Consider brown suede.

    How do you insure against the seller just taking your money and not sending anything?

    Check their reputation in the feedback forum. Beware when dealing with newly registered/low post count with no good feedback or reference sellers. Pay via Paypal using normal payment (not personal) with your credit card. In case of trouble, file complain/dispute to PayPal and/or credit card company.

    Looking to take my first dive into the world of blazers. Was looking at the mens wearhouse 2 for 1 special they have going. It's a look I haven't done before so the idea is to go for the affordable experimentation route since most "normal people" won't have a keen eye like all of the experts here. If I feel the blazer look works for me then later down the line I could go for a fancier make. This is what I was looking at: http://www.menswearhouse.com/webapp/...1_?cm_vc=40160 Thinking one in each color. I think the blue one looks fine, but the tan one makes me slightly hesitant. Would that tan work with say navy pants? The plaid looks more subtle and easier to pull off on the navy blazer than it does on the tan one, but that just might be the lighting of the photos. will mostly wear these with slacks/dress shirt but perhaps sometimes with some nice jeans for a night out if I can pull it off.

    What are very good dancing shoes for parties, clubs, that sort of thing? Something that perhaps goes with a button-up and black chinos. I'm looking in the neighborhood of $200 or less. I appreciate any advice you may offer.

    This has been bugging me... how do you customize your member status? I notice some members manage to do that. How do you do it? I dont see a setting for it.

    I tried asking this before and got no feedback. How does the fit of this shirt look? I am a little concerned that it's too tight in the chest:

    When shoes are described as "blobby" what does that mean?

    It means they are shapeless like a blob. It is not a positive assessment.

    It looks like it pulls slightly at the top chest button, but it's not too bad. It also looks like the sleeves fall just barely to your wrist when your arms are straight. It looks like they might be a little short when you bend your arms.
