I'm starting grad school in the following week and I'm required to wear business casual to school. I own several pairs of slacks, dress shirts, and shoes that I've acquired over the years. However, it wasn't until the past year or so where I really started to consider what it is I was buying, reading style magazines, and perusing this forum! I guess it had something to do with deciding to grow up, haha. All that being said, I have enough clothes to "make it" but who just wants to make it right? I'd like to do it right. Some of the clothes I own are of decent quality for terrible fit. I will be taking a few of my shirts and pants to the tailor over the next couple weeks to get them "trimmed up". What I'd like some advice on is where you may think I'd want to start on new clothes/shoes. When I do make purchases they will most likely be separate, in order to spread the hurt on the bank account. Though I am willing to spend a little extra coin to make it a good purchase. A little about myself, 5' 8", just under 180 lbs. I'm young, athletic shape, with the larger thighs. Ok, so enough online dating profile...here's what I own now... Shoes: -Alden Indy Chrome Excel (maybe for Fridays and the bad weather days?) -Alden Full Strap Burgundy loafer ( http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._calfskin.html) -Alden Black Oxfords ( http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._calfskin.html ) - Ecco slip on, my shoe is a lighter brown. - A pair of black cole-haan slip ons ( http://www.theshoemart.com/cole_haan..._venetian.html ) Pants: -Flat front/no cuff Navy blue dress pants. -Flat front/no cuff light gray dress pants. -Khaki Chinos (are these not dressy enough?) -Several pairs of pleated/cuffed different shades, khaki dress pants. (Personally I think these were a bad choice because the pleats and cuff, I feel like I'm too short) Shirts: -A few striped dress shirts from Jos. A Banks, thing was when I bought them they were all too big, I've had them tailored before, but I need to do it again I think. -A white dress shirt from BB, and a light blue button down collar oxford as well from BB. -Several hand me down dress shirts that still need to be tailored. -I'm pretty sure I can get away with a tennis shirt as well, I have a few LaCoste shirts that will work. So there you have it...rough idea of what I have to work with. Any suggestions? Also, I have a black dress belt, and a burgundyish belt as well...no real brown belt. Anyway, I'd like to look sharp and I think the tailor is the #1 place for that to happen right now, but any suggestions would be appreciated, as well as any "don'ts". Thanks!
