    Guys, I just got a new pair of Alfred Sargents and they fit fine except for the vein/Artery atop my right foot seems to be irritated by the tounge of the shoe. Is this something that will break in with time or should i return the shoes. I have not worn them on anything but carpet for a few minutes BTW. Anybody had an experience with this type situation? Thanks in advance.

    Good option. But it is definitely more casual then a regular wool overcoat. I say get both.

    A car coat would be another option.

    Depends on context.
    Yes.
    With a lighter blue yes, with navy no.
    Sure, if the brown isn't too dark.
    Yes, and you should always be tucking your shirt in, even with jeans. Untucked shirts look sloppy. There are exceptions, but for day to day wear, tuck your friggin' shirt in.
    No dark brown with black. Black oxfords, as long as they aren't too sleek, would go well with black jeans. Blocker or textured shoes are better with jeans in general, since the texture of jeans requires something that stands up to them.
    Depends on the club, but I would think a leather jacket would be appropriate for nearly any.

    can you wear a bowtie with any type of normal shirt collar? or do certain collars work better with a bowtie?

    Various types of shirt collars can be worn with bow ties. I find that button down collars work particularly well with them.

    x2. I also find that wide spread collars do not.
