    Indesertum, for the price you can do much worse than those Herring Knightsbridge. I ordered a pair and they arrived last week. Very happy with them. They are made by Loake to 1880 (sf approved) standards. Good luck with the interview.

    Are shearling jackets and cashmere-wool blend coats overkill for San Diego winters?
    I live close to the coast, so it does get (relatively) cold, windy, and wet. Just not sure how other people would percieve me for wearing these things in San Diego.

    It's impossible to choose the best sunglasses for you without seeing them on your face. Saying that, they're all pretty similar, so just pick the ones you think look best?

    Relativly light cashmere coats exist. But in the end you'll have to decide how much wear you'll get out it and if it's worth the price. I have coats I might wear five times a winter. They'll last forever if nothing eats them [​IMG] but they wouldn't be the first thing I'd buy. If you have the basics covered then it might make sense

    I'm in the midst of building a business wardrobe. Mostly it will consist of decent but cheap suits from the FS forum, and one TaT suit. I plan on slowly introducing more MTM as I can afford them, and years from now, a fully bespoke suit. However, am I crazy for considering a bespoke navy or charcoal sport coat? While not full business wear, it'd definitely be on the main pinnings of my wardrobe, and great for both casual with jeans or on weekdays with solid odd trousers.

    Is this a solid investment this early on, or should I wait several years until I have a more full closet before I buy something like this?

    I think it depends on some things. Are you required to wear a suit everyday? How many suits do you need ? Financial situation?

    The most important factor is the shape of your face, so it's hard to offer suggestions that will actually work for you.

    Does Allen Edmonds (The company itself) ever have sales in their shoes or offer promotion codes on their website? I see there is a space for it, but obviously I don't have one. I remember someone on AAAC mentioning there was some discount when he purchased some MTO shoes and I would like to do the same thing, but the extra $125 or so is making me waiver. I wish to purchase some custom leeds, but would much rather pay around $325 than $450.

    Even if they had sales, I highly doubt they would offer them on MTO items. Custom and discounts rarely if ever meet.

    Well, all four sunglasses are in the same size and their shape suits my face well. I just want to know which one out of them looks the best to you guys.
