    It's almost limitless and the price range can be staggering depending on what you can spend and what kind of leather or other exotic material you want. Mine is from Ralph Lauren, nice leather, and pretty nondescript. I got it quite discounted at a sale and probably would not have paid full price (I can't remember what that was).

    Most jeans are front pocket. Can anyone address me a brand of jeans that have their pocket cut on the side like pants/trouser do? I like the feel of having my pants on the side. Thanks.

    Jeans are just style of pant, not necessarily denim, so I imagine the pocket placement would be pretty uniform. You might have better luck just searching for denim trousers or chinos...

    Anywho, denim Mabitex pop up semi-regularly on MC B&S. I just grabbed a pair, and if you're just looking for a slim chino made out of denim, I recommend them.

    i've been wearing black shoes with my charcoal suit
    and different shades of brown with my navy suit
    i have a midnight blue suit on the way from my tailor
    it's dark enough that it might even be mistaken for black if seen alone...
    do i wear black shoes with the midnight blue suit?
    is it too contrasting/flashy to wear brown shoes with it?
    i guess i have to see the colors once it arrives
    but i was just having a passing thought about it so i'm asking now

    Notch DJ is historically acceptable and popular enough, but the issue is that it's been tainted recently by low end crap, made using business suit patterns, but with faced lapels. The notch lapel has been assosiated with horrible excuses for tuxedos on stupid looking high school students. If it's high quality (Gieves & Hawkes makes this a given) and the other details are right, don't hesitate to wear it.
    These are great. Heavy duty metal rings, thick and heavy webbing. And cheap. And with lots of colors. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CANVAS-Mens...e=WDVW&rd=1&ih=019&category=2993&cmd=ViewItem The same seller has other listings with lots of other colors.

    :facepalm:

    For a plain military belt (which I didn't realize was what he was asking for), the local army-navy store is your best bet. 50 cents for the buckle (they'll usually have brass, steel, and black), $2 for the belt (Tan, navy, green, and black at mine- some sell various non uniform colors too). If you're paying $5 and shipping, you're getting ripped off.

    Tucked. It just looks less sloppy and more put together.

    Dayum that's a pretty good deal then. The black version is likely corrected grain, but suede is suede and they're welted. OP, go with those.

    Hey guys, I posted this on formalwear p0rn but haven't got a response...

    I'm going to be in a black-tie optional gala this coming Saturday that my company is sponsoring. Can I wear my white dinner jacket even after Labor Day?

    I don't have a proper tux so another option would be my dark navy blue SB peak.

    Old wives tales about holidays affecting colors should be forgotten. Especially with formal wear. Because it is a company event, your standing in the company should have more of an impact on what you wear IMO. If I were management I would be fine wearing a white or blue jacket. However, especially in conservative settings, wearing anything aside from a black tux can look a bit brash and affected. However, since neither are black I'd say white is a more conservative choice. (Sorry to all those in England who maintain a gentleman never wears a white coat to a black tie affair.)

    I was just wondering what type of shoe this is. For what occasions is it usually being worn? I'm considering to wear it casual under jeans but I'm doubting if it is proper.
    Does the buckle on the shoe have a specific meaning?
