    Any suggestions? I prefer more simple/minimalist sneakers rather than athletic looking ones since I'd wear these around work and be a bit dressier.

    Was considering killshots, but those are mostly white as well. I've had puma suedes in gray before but they were a bit bland. Any other suggestions?
    There are some good color options in Greats Royale and Good Man Brand Legend

        I would find it hard to wear the 2 BR sport coats. Stripes and Charcoal almost always look like orphaned suit separates. The Bonobos looks decent but would be pretty pricey if still losing weight. I would try to find a standard navy blazer and wear the hell out of it instead of 3 separate pieces.

          I have a nice wool navy blazer that is pretty expensive that fits well. due to it being one of my nicest pieces of clothing, I don't want to use it as a everyday work piece.


          the bonoos was 216 witht heir discount. the others were roughly around 100.


          I guess your right about the banana republic ones. j crew used to sale navy cotton ones that probably be perfect

            Any thoughts on sources for medium-thick wool socks in solid colors? I like having more padding than the typical thin merino dress socks. I like Smartwool, but $21 per pair list price, ouch.

              REI has lots of options for wool socks

                I'm a huge fan of Darn Tough light cushion socks. They're around $16 last I checked, and they have a lifetime warranty, making them a very good value.

                  Thanks for the recommendation- everything I’m finding has them at $21 (at least for solid color, crew height), so let me know if you have a suggestion of another source.

                  Ditto for various offerings from REI (except for some super-ugly patterned ones on clearance). Maybe that’s just the price I have to pay...

                    A few quick questions on this thrifted blazer:

                    1) What color is this blazer? I'm thinking it's a tan/beige, and can be paired with gray, white/cream, and navy pants.
                    2) Is this considered hopsack according to the weave?
                    3) What are some good options for replacing the gold buttons?

                      It reads tab/beige to me. For pants, lighter colors would work and it depends on the gray. This is more of a spring/summer jacket as opposed to a fall/winter. Replace the button with some brown horn or something comparable.

                      I will note that the gorge on the jacket makes it look very dated. If I had to guess, you are looking at early 90s or before then. There is one Asian tailor on Instagram who makes new jackets with this gorge but they don't look modern.

                        I would guess late 70s. I have a jacket from the early 80s where the lapels are starting to get smaller and the gorge has moved up.

                          I was going to guess that as well because it doesn't have the crazy 80s/90s shoulder pads...

                            It IS socks for life... So it could be viewed as a great investment. I will say, I took two pairs to Italy for nearly three weeks, just washing them in the sink, I've been on team Darn Tough ever since. Actually wearing one of those pairs right now. Three years later, and they're going strong.

                              Looking for a rain coat/jacket/trench to wear with a suit. I don't want to look like Dick Tracey or an 80's throwback, but I want my jacket to look nice with a suit, not like I'm confused about whether I'm going to a meeting or hiking.

                                I have a lightweight wool Canali that I had tailored. It had that "Columbo" fit off the rack but my tailor shaped it with a bit more style and it still fits well over a suit.
