    I was about half and half, actually. They want $50 for it. I'd need to go back and look it over to see if the quality is really there.

    I guess shirts they want Made in America, 100% cotton (usually must iron), button-down, oxford cloth (usually)... but then other stuff too. Who really knows?

    Black casual pants are actually fairly easy. Just about any sweater, lots of tweeds. Just get yourself a pair of black loafers. Black jeans are a staple for me.

    Oh, and since you reminded me of cords, the sears near me was having a big sale on fall/winter Lands End Canvas stuff earlier this week, I got a nice pair of olive cords for $8. Straight fit, and the inseam runs a little longer than labelled, though I haven't washed mine yet (I'm wearing 'em). I chickened out on the red ones. Regular LE was on sale at 30% off as well.

    Ran back for the braces when I was off work and luckily they were right where I left them

    Grabbed a few more from the lot since the price was right (all available)

    Looks good! Love the shirt.


    RE: Brace/Suspender ID - along with the brass plating, the center piece of leather tying it all together usually has a name, or at least a country of origin.



    Picked these up today:

    Incredibly Soft Bottega Veneta Blue/Gray Tassel Loafers
