    What is a good shirt color for a dark grey pinstripe suit?
    This will be worn as business professional for interviews or similar events.


    You never can go wrong in a solid white. Light blue is also a good bet.

    +1 those are the classics. I've just tossed out 1/2 my regular dress shirts to make space for more white and light blue.

    Too pointy? It's about 1/2 an inch longer then my next longest shoe.
    Here it is with a converse and a pair of Clarks DBs (and my foot in x-ray style).

    Is your concern that the shoe looks too pointy, and as a result too big. Or the fit?

    From this perspective it doesn't look like a clown shoe. Space around the toe shouldn't matter for fit.

    The fit (width, heel etc.) is great, there is just more toe then I'm used to.. I know there is a lot of hate on the pointy toe around here so I figured if I didn't get shot for posting this then I would be safe from these being too pointy/long.
    I'm also a lot more used to the whole aldo/kennith cole square toe. [​IMG]

    I just bought a beautiful pair of Edward Green MTO whiskey shell cordovan wingtips off of B&S. They are a 9D on the 606 last. Will I have any trouble fitting into these with my US size 9.5D feet?

    Hey guys, quick question. I was at Harry Rosen earlier to see what size I am in AE Park Avenues. the 10.5s fit me well lengthwise, and she was mentioned that they were regular width. What's regular width? A D? or an E?

    The middle width is D

    I'm not that big on the pointy toes, but those look a billion times better then the KC/Aldo snow shovel toe.

    Certainly they're of a certain aesthetic, but if you like that aesthetic, go right ahead. Just be warned, they'll look comical with trousers that have rather narrow openings, since both aspects will exaggerate the proportion of foot size to leg size.

    Should I pick this up? http://cgi.ebay.com/4150-Rare-TOM-FO...ht_3214wt_1132 I've wanted that particular sport coat since I first saw it at the Madison Avenue boutique a few years back; luckily, this one is in my size, and at a reduced price. The cerulean blue is probably my favorite color, however, how versatile do you think it will be? Are there a fair amount of options to pair with a jacket like this? I'd like to be able to get my money's worth out of it, but I don't want to wear it like a uniform every time with white pants as shown in the lookbook: [​IMG] Thoughts/opinions? edit: To those who have experience with Tom Ford jackets, is base D the slim cut? I can't remember the bases and their coordinating letters, but I know from trying them on that the slimmest cut fits me best.
