I think lands end canvas has some on the cheap.
I would EBay and get a Burberry. But go to a store that carries Burberry and try it on and dial in on your size. I would move fast. Trench coats tend to fetch higher prices as winter approaches.
I want a dress shoe for poor weather. Is a danite sole the way to go? Does the upper matter?
What do you mean by "poor weather"? Dainite is great for mucking about in mud, terrible for ice and other slick, smooth surfaces. Dainite's also not very dressy, if you're looking for something to wear with suits and the like. You'd probably be better off with a non-studded rubber sole or Topy.
Calf can take a pretty good beating from the weather, but it doesn't like road salt. Suede's OK in rain but can be stained by oil and other gunk lurking in puddles/snow. Shell offers great durability, but you have to like the look.
Thanks for that info, Doc. You may have saved me from myself as I didn't quite understand the best use for Dainite and would have likely worn these in icier conditions.
Now I know and...
I have a fit question, i take a 10.5 EEE in Allen Edmonds, but i'm looking into the C&J Tetbury chukkas and the Churchs Ryder 3 chukkas. I am only finding them online in E width, would an 11 E width comparably fit me well? I do not have any place near me that i can go try on the shoes to check, but i would like to get some suede chukkas in a slick looking last. AE was not an option for me this time, i did not like the roundness of the Malvern in my size. Some help please?
I am going to a friend's wedding in a few months, and will be wearing a navy suit. Right now, the most dressy shoes I have are Alden #8 shell PTBs. Are these are acceptable to wear for this occasion?
Not really; black cap-toes would be a much better choice. Of course, weddings can vary a lot, so it does depend what everyone else will be wearing.
I personally always do brown with blue, a nice dark brown would be my choice for a wedding.
I bottled out recently and kept with worsted. But I do so like the look and feel of heavy grey flannel suits. Problem: I'm a thigh rubber. Every trouser I have wears out in the crotch and thigh, while the rest of the garment still looks pristine. Everyone says that flannel has poor wear resistance. I've read the recent thread on this subject, but the cure sounds a little hit-and-miss. So, am I tempting fate here? Should I just stick with worsted?
I hope you like fakes.
Where to buy some cheap office attire? May start interning at a financial firm.
I am thinking H&M?
h&m is fine for casual, i think topman would be more appropriate.
He could probably avoid fakes if he buys used. (it would help if he knew how to spot a fake)
I'm buying a few fall/winter sweaters.
I don't have much other thick sweaters besides this one:
So to add another sweater which color would you guys recommend?
I actually have the blue one but should I get something that is more neutral in color like the brown one? I have the blue one right now, and i have one month left to return/exchange it.
