    Is this shoe too informal for a business casual environment? I have a pair of brown AEs with laces, and the tying-laces thing every morning is getting really annoying [yes, first world problems].

    I think I will look good, but it will definitely pop. What will everyone else be wearing, similar attire? Indoor outdoor? If its outdoor I say go for it.

    Sorry, I should have mentioned the setting. It's actually being held at a local museum in a small hill country town in Texas. Most of the people attending will be in their mid twenties except for the family of the bride and groom. I think its just the usual dress code for a wedding with the women wearing dresses and guys in suits.

    WTB 34S suit in NYC??

    I am 5'8", 130lbs, skinny and looking for a black slim suit with narrow lapels. My budget is limited to $600-800, so I would like to get a RTW suit and tailor it a bit. I tried Theory Xylo 36S suit, but it's still too big on me. :-(

    THANK YOU Steve! Knew you were there haha (I did buy it from you)

    Sadly I resold at the time, not sure why--it was a bit tight but fitted :(

    Best place to go to get measurements and sizing for the first time? I am starting college next month, don't have much money (or at least not enough to buy custom fitted clothing as of yet) and want to continue to make my wardrobe 'classier' than the athletic shorts and flip-flops that populate Ohio State. I'm taking my two, a bit too big, off the rack suits with me, but as for dress shirts, I only own S-M-L sized pieces. Essentially, where could I go to figure out my size of shirt, suit, etc. so that things fit better and so that I may be able to start trolling the B&S forum / ebay for nicer pieces?

    THe same with shoes. I don't understand the entire #Letter sizing system, but don't have the cash right now to be buying shoes off the rack.

    Go to the best tailor you can find. In Columbus, Ohio Boris has gotten some solid press. Go in and ask them to take your precise measurements. It will probably cost like $5-$10 but the information is indispensable, especially when buying online. If you don't go the Boris route make sure you go to a good tailor to ensure you get correct measurements. A lot of places will offer to measure you but not have any idea what they are doing.

    I haven't been to either of them since I don't currently have a car and live about 30 minutes outside of Columbus, but in addition to Boris I hear Golden Needle is pretty quality as well, if they are open.

    Edit: As for shoe sizes the number is the size, the letter is the width. Look for a sizing chart to see how they translate to UK and other sizing.

    For $850, Mr. Ned will make you a kick-ass bespoke suit.

    I surely will research it some more.

    And your replies have clarified it a bit. (I am guessing your point is that there is no clear cut rules that govern it)

    Thanks again.
