Should get my cummerbund soon. I'm undecided as to whether I will get special shoes. Part of me would love to own velvet opera slippers with embroidered skulls or something, but really my black oxfords are probably good enough.

      This is apropos of nothing but I had my audition for the music ensemble for which I bought this tux, and got in! I went into the audition under the impression that there were no openings and I was just going for a substitute/alternate spot, but they did have an opening and I am now a regular member of the orchestra!

        Congrats, Ben! Cause for celebration. Perhaps some skull-embroidered opera slippers are in order?

            I'm not sure how my post got nuked, but it did.

            Yesterday evening I unwrapped a pair of Uniqlo cordalane pants - basically a charcoal and white micro stripe. Fit is dead perfect, not overly skinny like my previous uniqlo experience. Love the look and feel, they look like they were measured for me, and I'm wearing them at work today.

            Also a pair of the burgundy Wyatt single monks were ordered on the F&F sale from Banana Republic. 50% off, so $84 prior to tax, free shipping. I've wanted a pair of burgundy single monks since I came back from Holland some 20 years ago, where I had the greatest pair ever and didn't value them properly. These won't be as nice as those were, but a fair stand in at reasonable price.

              Got this as a late Father's Day gift from wifey:

              Aldo leather wingtip boots with leather sole


              Only caveat is it is amazingly hard to find a matching-color belt with this.

              P.S. I found one but it has a brand my wife love - Louis Vuitton

                Don't buy without looking into it a little more, but British tan, walnut or cognac might be decent places to start regarding a matching belt. (Those are color names, btw)

                  Nordstrom / Nordstrom Rack should have enough variety to find one (or Google Shopping)

                    I saw the LV belt in an actual LV store so I can say that they are really color-matched, if not 100%.

                    I don't want to trust my monitor when color-matching belts (or other stuff) because most of the time, it does not look the same as what's portrayed in the picture.

                    You know, their disclaimer "actual items may be slightly different from the photos..."

                    And I'm based in Canada, so I don't normally shop with Nordstrom.

                      Awesome shoes, good shade, will go great with suits as well as with jeans.

                      Wear what is good for your and others eyes

                        Hello mate, great shoes! I have this belt and I think it would match with the shoes! You can always go look at the belt in person.

                          Thanks! But I probably won't spend $60 USD on a single belt (sorry, cheapskate here)
                          I did find one in Hudson Bay - a Fossil leather belt for only $42 CAD. I'll just probably wait for it to go on sale.

                            Got these sneakers from Pointer today. After browsing MFA too much, I was convinced that I needed a white leather sneaker. These were 50%off ( 50+15 shipping ). The website says that they are full grain leather. They are nice and soft. But the leather is far too thin. It's creasing already.

                              Just picked this guy up. Looks even better in person.

                                I grabbed the Stafford Deacon's because of the site article. I'm happy to see they're down to 50.
