    Yup, 100%

    However I'm more fond of a lighter grey suit with brown shoes.

    thanks guys. i'm trying to pick up a cheap suit over this summer for the few occasions throughout the year that I need one (formals, fancy school dinners and stuff) (and obviously for job interviews, etc. in the future). now I just need to convince my mom to look at somewhere other than men's warehouse [​IMG]

    FWIW I've only heard of them doing repair work to leather soles and of course vibraming. I know that you can also just ship them to Firm, you don't actually have to be in NYC.

    no I'm totally just looking for something conservative. want it to fit well though. bb are expensive though, I was thinking more h&m level price range. I'm only going to be wearing it a few times a year. or would I be better off with some khaki trousers, a navy sport coat, a nice formal shirt and some brown loafers?
