    The quality of leather and stitching, handwork all of the usual suspects. I would look into Ettinger, Aspinal, Swaine Adney Brigg, Launer, most mid-high level brands have decent stuff too, like brooks, Ralph Lauren, Paul Stuart.

    Get sick drunk, throw up on the CEO and insult his wife. Attempt to screw the secretary and tell her she'll loose her job if she doesn't let you have your way with her.

    On your way out the door be sure to tell all your coworkers what schmucks they are for putting up with your retarded middle management.

    That should pretty much cover all your bases.

    I'm starting to amass a formidable little collection of dress pants after joining these here forums. Stuff from Howard Yount, Epaulet, Billy Reid, etc. Do any of you guys store your dress pants folded? Or does everyone pretty much use the bar on a nice hanger? I have trouble using the hanger bars since I get a lot of my pants tapered and they don't line up quite right as if they were new. What about the clamp style from Ikea? Is there a true right or wrong way?

    Get drunk, hit on the boss' secretary, sing karaoke to "Fight for Your Right to Party," then file for unemployment.

    I wasn't really feeling it until I read this:

    Funny guys. Specifically looking for bifolds though, but that one you linked looks like something I could use. Just wish they had more pictures up.

    and

    work with a white shirt underneath and beeswax Clark's? Those aren't the actual chinos I'd wear, but they're the same color and do look similar lol.

    Should I wear a brown belt that matches my shoes even if I'd be wearing a brown belt on grey chinos? Doesn't that look weird?

    If my sweater goes over my belt, should I tuck it in?

    I love that first pair. The monks are cool, but I really like the first pair a lot. Super clean lines.

    Depend on what shoes you have. The first one is a bit more staple. Can't go wrong with either.

    UGGHH. I started liking the laces.

    Now I like the Monks.

    Why does everyone like the laces?

    Thanks. I would prefer it darker, too, but, as I already have a kinda nice pair of dark brown suede shoes and the price of these is right...

    P.D. Forgive my "manual" quoting.

    Achilles_ said: "I would get something darker brown."


    What do you think of these shoes for fall/winter. The rubber heel is fine with me for the rainy weather I have here but I wonder about the color for those seasons.

    I work at an office where men wear chinos/nice jeans/corduroys. My pants include tan/cream, olive and navy moleskins, medium grey flannels and sometimes medium dark jeans.

    Thanks to all.
