    Thanks! They're Jack Erwin's "Charlie" loafer in Burgundy. Blake-stitch made them easy to break in and they're just chunky enough to wear casually while still remaining low-profile for a semi-dressed up look.
    Noted. Thanks.

          How's the jacket fit with a sweater and a vest? It seems like you would have to buy it that loose to fit those two items. SuitSupply had those combo type jacket/vests and people laughed but I am seeing it more often though I am personally not a fan. Must still be cold where you are at?
          [MENTION=14858]DMB[/MENTION] - I like the colors together. Green and purple are one of my favorite combos.

            With only a button-down or sweater, the jacket actually fits well and isn't loose. But with the vest, I can't button the jacket comfortably or else the lapels will bow out and the armholes cut off circulation haha, which is why I'd only wear it unbuttoned here. Also the sweater here is really thin and adds less bulk than a button-down, so this only really works with really thin sweaters in my experience. I'm wearing a cable knit sweater today, and with the jacket I wouldn't be able to bend my arms much.


            Temperature can vary a lot here as with most places. Was in the 60s and 70s, then dropped to 40s a couple nights the past 2 weeks. That's probably not cold for someone up north, but 40s warrants a few layers for me personally. 20s/30s would be full on sweater, overcoat, scarf, gloves haha

                Awesome hoodie. I feel like there is a lot you could do with that. Just checked the LE site, unfortunately, doesn't look available.

                      Not going to lie it's an adjustment, but I liked it and will certainly continue. Work is a step or two below business formal, but I always give a buddy a hard time when he even wears a tie, so he let me know he noticed a sport coat. Speaking of adjustments, my tailor said the jacket fits great. It's my shirt sleeves that are too short. Have a couple with what I considered "longer" sleeves so they should work perfectly.

                        Solid first look, [MENTION=13204]bernanke[/MENTION] - I agree with your tailor, jacket sleeves look fine, just need sleeves a bit longer. A lot of people are really picky on that point (some sleeve showing), but in real life most people won't think twice if there isn't much peeking out. They'd more likely notice if the shirt sleeve is a lot longer than the coat sleeve, since visually that's more disruptive.

                                I need to find a mirror, but I'm pretty dang happy with my outfit today. Really feel like I've put together something nice (although it's basic).

                                Shirt: light blue OCBD from Gap
                                Pants: Levi's 541 medium wash
                                Belt: Levi's jean belt (mid brown)
                                Shoes: Florsheim Doon chukka (mid brown)
                                Watch: Orient Mako blue
                                Jacket: Merona Harrington (navy)

                                Very similar to this look I guess, although this isn't me:
