    Yeah, I agree. You don't want too much stuff on/in your jacket. A pocked square AND lapel pin is too much IMHO.

    So I've been looking around to add to my shoe/boot collection. I currently have:
    Black Park Avenues 9D
    Dark Brown McAllister's 9D
    Blue suede chukkas from Thursday Boot Co size 8
    Dark Brown Captain 6" boots from Thursday Boot size 9
    PF Flyers size 9
    Brannock size: 9D

    I think my next purchase will be either a Chelsea boot or a loafer, and I'm leaning towards a boot as I prefer the style more. My eyes are on the AE Liverpool in tan, the TBC Duke in brown, or a Carmina black chelsea I found on Grailed in size 9 (Rain last). My question is, of these 3, which would be the best bet when compared to my other shoes and would the Carmina chelsea even fit based on my other shoe sizes?
    EDIT: I'm all ears if you have a better recommendation for me!

    I'd go with a Chelsea boot, although a loafer (especially in suede) will get much more use over the next few months. Carminas are listed in UK sizes, which are generally 1 smaller than US size (9UK = 10US), so the 9 UK Rain would not fit you. The Duke in brown looks nice.

    I would go loafer, especially if you live in a warmer climate. I'd also pick up a pair of brogues (Strand or Cornwallis) before another boot, but YMMV.

    How do you like the Thursday Boot company offerings? I've been eyeing the Captains. I've read mixed reviews on the company, but at that price point it's super tempting.

    Those Carmina Chelsea's look like they would fit since the seller says UK8 which is right at a 9D US. It really depends on what you wear as I wear boots year round and had some Cehlsea's on last week. With the Dainite sole on the grailed pair, they should last quite a while! The last looks a lot better than the Liverpool too.

    How can I find the blue lens 'Jack' aviators at JCrew? They're mentioned in the Thursday handful but I cannot find them to save my life. I really want to buy them.

    Please help!

    Can't find them because they are sold out. Sorry

    Just got my order from S&M and first time trying out their ties. One of my ties has some creasing in the middle of the tie and towards the top. These are straight out of the plastic sleeve, no tying.

    Is that normal? I usually pick up ties from TJ Maxx and Marshalls etc. and none have that. The other tie I have is also not creased. Is this something that is returnable or just hit with a steamer?

    I've been very happy with all my S&M purchases and their customer service, so not a slight against them but wanted input.

    Does a light grey suit go well with dark chili McAllisters? I plan on getting a new suit from Lands End, and they are out of navy and charcoal in my size.
