right, that's why I asked for a recommendation for a belt buckle.
I'll just get a Target one.
Good belts, you can get them cheap if you order direct from one of the UK stores.
Noodles get a grip. Are you still drunk from those Hoegardens last night?
The following 12 Shirts have been retained. Did any escape that should not have?
The following 20 shirts have been purged. Should any be given a second chance?
Mine shoes are terrible.
One step at a time, sir.
Can we get a tie purge picture?
Good point, I just have too many shoes and have been cleaning them out. Ones I don't wear are the formal ones at the moment as I don't have to dress up for now. Just want to get a real job soon in case I want to do MBA or something like that
Gonna work on that one next, jrd. It will probably be sometime tomorrow.
I feel like I have a reasonable general plan, not so sure about the foundation on which it rests. Would like some feedback regarding keepers, but also recs on good versatile fabrics and patterns, and possibly particular pieces based on my stated preferences. For example somebody posted a blue wool/silk blend SC w/ patch pockets from HY a day or two ago whose measurements on paper seem to be spot on for me. Wondering if anyone has experience with the actual item or its equivalent and can comment on fit and quality? Would it fulfill one component of my stated plan? That kind of thing. I understand in the end it's a subjective decision, but it seems like a good idea to get help in navigating from those with more time behind the wheel. Aka the Style Council.
Will try to follow up tomorrow, hopefully with pics. Must. lose. more. lbs.
On HY shoes:
I'm happy with mine. I'll get another pair at some point, probably something like these:
A few were purged that maybe shouldn't have been. What looks to be a plain blue striped shirt should be kept (2nd picture), as should the blue and brown tattersall (last picture)
Calm down, they're not terrible. They seem a little too big for you though. Do they feel ok when you walk?
What does cheap at C&J come to?
110 ish i believe
about the same as alden or high end brooks brothers
