I'll start with the classic:

1. The Khaki suit in a cotten/linen or all linen.
2. Black Persols

C&J "Chalfont" (pg. 10 of the new catalog)
Wish I owned them, but I need to find a deal and try them on as I'm unsure of Euro sizing.
I'm open to tips on purchasing C&J.

Go down 1/2 size from your US size (I wear US 12D and would buy UK size 11.5E from C&J), unless the shoe is a Handgrade on the 337 last. In the latter case, I go down 1 full size, to UK 11E. This is only an educated guess, as I own only C&J shoes in US sizes, purchased from RL (I have the Alton, a C&J Handgrade on the 337 last, in US size 11.5D and the Darlton wingtip, a C&J Pembroke Benchmade on the 325 last, in US size 12D).

  • My style hasn't changed at all.

  • My wardrobe hasn't changed but I am wearing casual clothes more often.

  • I invested in new good quality leisure and casual clothes.

  • I invested in new sartorial clothes taking advantage of the sales.

  • I purged my closet during quarantine and I have nothing left to wear.
