    Depends on your job. It looks ok but we have no other information about where you work, type of work, and the atmosphere.

    Summer Friday suede loafers

    Hey guys, I have a "coffee date" with a very senior exec at a major Manhattan print publishing place on Friday morning. It's casual but in that Manhattan magazine type way.

    I plan on wearing a subtle grey check jacket I bought for this purpose, along with blue Bonobos khakis. I think I would like to buy a pair of suede loafers in gray to go with this - and wear them sockless.

    I am a bigger guy, so I think a more stable less dainty looking shoe would look best. I love drivers but think they may be a little bit casual for this environment, but it is "just" a coffee date. I want to look pulled together but in a sort of easy way.

    Does anyone have options on Trask loafers in particular?

    I have found Jodphurs odd when on the feet. They crease weird and just don't feel totally secure. I am a fan of Chelsea's though.

    Does Bonobos ever have > 20% sales? Need to pick up a couple of items from there and not sure how long to wait.

    Hi all, new to the forum and new to worrying about my look.

    So, to cut to the chase, I was buying a cheap suit (j ferrar) for my new job (sales rep at cellular sales) and was getting feedback from my gf of 3 years. She really liked some shoes I was on the fence about. Those shoes...are these. Well she sold me on them.
    Now I've worn them to both interviews and got the job. Matter of fact my regional manager complimented my attire as it does fit well. Though I doubt he saw the shoes and the more I look at them the more I hate them. From "go buy some oxford cap toe shoes" to "it's not that bad" how bad is it? My first day is tomorrow.

    Can anybody recognize this shirt or where it might have come from?

    Thanks, [MENTION=2341]LesserBlackDog[/MENTION] and [MENTION=17354]mebejoseph[/MENTION]. I agree that the tie would look good with navy. I'll be at the shop with the charcoal suit tonight; if they have the tie in stock, I'll see how the combo looks in person.

    I think a navy suit would be a safer bet with this tie.
    Yes to seeing the combo in person to be sure.

    And yes to navy suit as well.

    Yes or no with a charcoal suit? (And probably with a white shirt and black shoes.)

    We have a couple of these from my wife's grandfather. We do not wear them outside of, as you stated, our annual Oktoberfest party since they are more in remembrance of him. If I were going to wear something more frequently, I feel like you could wear it unbuttoned like a casual jacket. Seems like it would work well. My wife's grandfather always wore them buttoned all the way up which I feel like is the only other way to wear it, totally unbuttoned or all the way up. In between could look odd though some people pull off one button of the French chore coats buttoned.

    I just got a new sea blue/slate blue suit (not navy or a bright royal blue). The color is similar to the link below but mine is a two piece. I'm having a hard time figuring out what color tie to wear with it. I have an social event coming up and I'm planning to wear it with a plain white shirt and need to figure out a tie. I was considering Navy with white micro dot or maybe a solid grenadine if I can figure out a good color. Any ideas?

    As others have stated, almost anything would work. The only thing I would advise against would be a satin tie of any color. Satin is a formal fabric for ties. I really like this light green tie I have that would work well with this. Dark brown could work but since it is a social event, have some fun and add some color!
