    I think it's fine. I have some Meltonian that I bought in the early 90's that I still use.

    Good day gentlemen. I am interested in rules for carrying a wallet. My needs are 2 credit cards, drivers license, 2 checks, insurance card. Are their different wallets I should carry based on attire? (i.e. suit, and carry in jacket inside left pocket). Also, what should I use if I am wearing slacks and a shirt, with no jacket, suggestions?

    For what you are carrying, a card case would probably be fine. You just carry it in your front pocket. I have a few more cards in my wallet as well as a work ID, subway pass, etc. so I use a fairly slim wallet that folds over once. I carry it in the breast pocket of a jacket when I wear one and in my back pocket when not.

    Thanks, card case recommendations? Wallet recommendations? I do like the single fold as you mentioned.

    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.
