    My son's Bar Mitzvah is in about a month and I'd like to buy a couple of suits. The event has two parts; both formal, one is in the evening and one is the afternoon. I was wondering if I should go with darker colors for the evening event and lighter colors for the afternoon event? Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I don't think that is needed. I say charcoal, and navy are suitable for most any occasions. Much more versatile.

    Stubbs and Wooten. Del Toro. Rugby RL. Might not be the exact shoes but a good place to start.

    PS. Those are house shoes.

    Banana Republic's return policy specifies that they only take returns up to 60 days past the purchase date. If I bring my items to the store, will they actually enforce this and not give me a return?

    FWIW the Iron Ranger is a narrow boot. It's not a cap toe, but the Wolverine 1000 Mile boot is another to consider and IMO is more versatile. It is still a work boot, but IMO can be worn a bit dressier than the Iron Ranger. I have both and the IR is rougher and cruder than the 1000 Mile.

    Why a heel warranty? I bought several pairs of plastic heel taps from ebay. Put those on the heel, wear until almost worn out, replace. That's my heel warranty.

    Give it a try and hope for a non-confrontational type BR employee. That is a pretty lousy return policy BTW.

    Hi SF, need your help desperately for tailoring advice!

    So I nabbed this suit off eBay recently, and the seller's measurements were a tad misleading and I ended up getting a size too large of a suit. I was wondering how feasible it was to make this suit workable. What do y'all think about the fit right now? I'm thinking if I leave the shoulders alone I could at least take in the waist a little bit and slim the sleeves, but looking at the photos now they look semi-passable, with just a wide shoulder.

    Thoughts? I'm way more used to wearing soft-shouldered suits, and this is rather new for me. Thanks all!

    (Also, all you 40Rs out there, if this doesn't work out for me... ;) )

    Bonobos is having a sale currently and I came accross these trousers labled as "wedding trousers." I have tried looking around online and couldn't find a definition of this type of pants. Assuming they are same as the other pants on sale (brushed twill), is there any difference since they do not seem formal to warrant a "wedding trousers" moniker.

    You mean apart from the fact that it's ultra tacky?

    Yes which is the reason why I'm looking to see how much it's worth so I can sell it. I got it as a gift
