    ebay was a real suggestion, you can get genuinely nice shoes there as long as you know what you want.

    Allen Edmonds are the most obvious suggestion. They can be found in that price range, if you're patient enough.

    Cole Haan retails for ~$200 if you don't want to wait for a sale, but the styling isn't always the best.

    You can find PAs on ebay for around $250.

    Hey. Can anyone point to where I can get long sleeve T-shirts/undershirts that I can where underneath short sleeve T-shirts? I always wanted to try that look but I don't know where to find them. Thanks in advance.

    Hey, long time lurker of these forums, decided to join. I've got a short, slim build (5'9", 140 lbs, 6% Body Fat, 28" waist, 34" chest, et cetera), and I'm looking for a more casual, shorter shirt with a bit of drape, that can be worn both partially unbuttoned and buttoned, and can be rolled up at the sleeves. I'm also looking to find a brand with shirts / outerwear that can consistently fit someone with my build. Price shouldn't be a problem, so long as it isn't upwards of $250. I've heard good things about Band of Outsiders. Does it sound like their clothes would fit my needs? And if so, should I go with a S or an XS? I'm worried that the Oxford in their online store is a bit too long for wearing un-tucked. Thanks for any help that you can give. I got this picture as a reference for what I'm looking for (http://www.gq.com/images/entertainme...olk/folk35.jpg)

    Can anybody recommend non-sneaker non-black/brown shoes? All I can think of are loafers and boat shoes.

    I just got thick white leather belt, what type of shoes/pants should I pair it with?

    Also, I love cords. Where can I get a nice slim fit pair, and what type of shirt would one typically wear with them?

    Yea those are the kind of shirts I'm aiming for, though I already have some thermals, so looks like I'll be aiming more for basic crew necks. Got a question about sleeves. So I like to roll up my sleeves a lot, so are there kinds of sleeves that I should look out for or stay away from? Does it even matter?

    Your body type sounds very similar to mine. You may want to go to a brooks brothers and try their extra slim fit shirts. They would have been perfect on me but my chest (36) was the only part that didn't fit so they should work well for you.
