    What color DB's should i get. Id like to stay away from the all too typical tan (already have them in tan) and also dont like the beeswax leather (?) style. Im open to any color, but am really feeling the brown ones. Maybe grey? Help me stylish ones.

    ^if you are just getting one boot, go with brown over black as it is more versatile. I don't really care for those, but I don't really like chelseas anyways.

    edit: they are calvin klein, so I'm guessing they aren't too great of quality

    is there something particularly wrong with calvin klein build quality? Also, any particular reason you don't like Chelsea boots? From what I read up about them, they seem very versatile, able to be worn in a wide range of situations.

    A) The leather is beyond shit quality, it feels like plastic B) In all likelihood they have cemented soles C) Stitching and construction is going to be miles behind good shoemakers

    Thinking of getting some Raf Simons basic tees. Anyone here familiar with the sizing? I have a 40 in. chest, should I just get a sz 40? Or is it not that simple? It's on Yoox where I've had some buying catastrophies before.

    The first suit I bought for that grad ceremony was a nice gray banana republic suit. Tailored/slim fit, two button suit jacket and slim fit pants. I got it for 140 total during their sales. Sometimes they have great coupons. H&m, uniqlo are nice and cheap but quality is not that great.
    Hope that helps.

    I am really diggin the taupe ones. I own the beeswax brown and that is aging nicely. I was really tempted in buying the taupe or dark brown. I got mine from BR for 59 after a 40% coupon.

    Fit will be spot on only if you know how to measure yourself (best to have someone help or if you are really unsure go to any tailor and ask them to take your measurements). Construction isn't going to be the best ever but it's better than most of what you'll find at that price (H&M, Zara, BR, etc.)
