    What's a good choice for a first decent pair of dress shoes? I was thinking going black, something along the lines of an Allen Edmonds Park Avenue. I will be wearing these to work at an Investment Bank in NYC.

    Thanks

    That would be fine. You might also be able to get away with a wingtip, in black.

    prolly not your thing but underarmor compression shorts are sweet...cool, light, dry, no bunching, and very comfortable. 30 bucks a piece tho.

    I got my eyes on this suit. Do you guys think the button stance it's a bit high? I'm feeling like so, but I could use a second opinion. Thanks folks.

    Probably not haha. But you're the the only person to post a reply to me so that means a lot. Thank you. I wish under armour didn't discontinue their briefs then. I know they made them before.

    Thank you for the reply. Yeah, it's not my thing haha, but it means lots for you to even reply, since you're the first person to reply to me. I wish UA didn't discontinue their briefs then.

    Sorry, mods didn't see that message til now. Hope the post is approved.

    Depends on which Investment Bank I reckon, if you start as an analyst you probably do not want to have more expensive shoes than the senior folk.

    I can't find the exact model I am looking for but it's actually a combination of the two, you only have the outer lining on the tip, not the dots on the very edge on the tip (in terms of clarity I think this sentence is not really helping you sorry)

    Those are both fucking awful. And I think what you're describing might be an austerity brogue? Something like the EG Beaulieu: [​IMG]

    Hm, I would never recommend the above shoes to a relatively young person though.

    If I manage to get home at an appropiate hour I will take a picture of the shoes that I am referring to.

    Quote: It is Morgan Stanley. I am 35 years old, so I am not a first-year or anything. I am already working there in the Technology and Data group (clothes are much less important here), but I will be interacting with the business analysts a lot more in the coming months, which is part of what prompted the upgrade in wardrobe.

    pockets are uneven, button stance is too high, too much waist suppression, and the ticket pocket looks incredibly bizarre given the relative formality of the suit as a whole.

    sry.

    This. I wear underarmor boxerjocks (I believe that's what they're called). Incredibly comfortable, and no stretching of the legs or thick bands that are visible through the pants. Expensive, but they hold up great. Bought my first pair over 2 years ago, and they haven't deteriorated at all.
