    Is this Gucci sweater "too much"? What should I wear under it?

    Too much in term of design? No.
    Too much in term of price/value? Yes.
    What to wear under? Shirt + tie.

    Macy's is having a one day sale tomorrow and their club room cashmere v neck sweaters are going to be on sale for $59, worth it? I can't afford BB or RL. Is the cashmere that low of quality?

    The cashmere will be of low quality; but if fits your budget constraints, it fits well and you like wearing it then go for it.

    Can someone comment on the quality of Gran Sasso and its fit?

    I have a few of their sweaters and like them.

    I'm getting hitched and decided to go the way of the black suit instead of a tux. I'm looking for a pair of shoes to buy that'll last and look good (and a suit actually but that's another matter).

    Would the Peal & Co perforated cap toe bal's or wingtips be appropriate? I'm hesitant about anything perforated being formal enough. What about loafers? Yes, I'm looking to take advantage of the BB sale today...

    Thanks!


    Perforated captoe bal is far more formal than loafers. They will work well. I consdier loafers + suit are more of a faux pas, and one should never do (of course, many think it's fine).

    I'm guessing they have different fits for the US and EU markets. The ones I have are from the US market and are sized accordingly. I wear 42R suit in US makers and find the Gran Sasso sweaters fit true to size.

    I think I'll pick up a gray cardigan then. Thanks for the input.

    For such a festive occasion you'll want something without any brogueing. Brogues are always less formal than the same basic shoe in plain. That you should wear a laced shoe is a matter of course unless maybe patent pumps but since you're not doing the tux that's not what I'd recommend.

    What would be very nice and easily reusable later on would be a pair of wholecut Oxfords in black or a very dark blue tone - that depends on your suit colour. Definitely no derby and no casual loafer.

    Any blue, red, gray, etc. Pretty much anything but beige or a similar color.

    Thanks for the advice Onix and Retozimmermann.

    I'll keep my eye out for a suitable shoe. I like the wholecut oxford idea, I hadn't considered a midnight blue, but I like it... a lot.

    Ebay - is it worth it ?

    ATM i do not have an ebay account and was wondering if bargains can still be found (heard of some + and - stories). Are the sellers on ebay trustworthy?

    Anyone have a recommendation/guide for how to tie a scarf? I've never actually worn one before.
