Anonymous asked: Debating whether to get leather or suede mid-brown loafers for casual wear. I'd mainly be wearing them with ocbds and jeans/cotton trousers. Any suggestions?
I like suede, as they are more casual, but this one’s on you. Either works.
Anonymous asked: Affordable place to get opera pumps for a black tie outfit? I'm not adverse to spending more money but considering how inflexible this type of footwear is (I'd wear it like 3 times a year maybe) I'd ideally like to pay a little less.
Try Shipton & Heneage. Not super cheap, but pretty solid from a relative standpoint.
Anonymous asked: I've been looking for something with patch pockets for awhile now (given that I'll really only wear it for casual occasions) and Trunk Clothiers' Boglioli Hopsack Dover jacket is perfect for what I need. However, they also have a full suit - in your opinion, would it be worthwhile splashing out that bit more for the whole set, or would the jacket alone be sufficiently versatile? Thank you!
If you’ve got the cash, it’s probably worth splurging for the full suit. I really like the idea of a suit that can be broken up and worn as separates, and if you’re getting the jacket anyways, you may as well have the option of suiting up every now and then.

Anonymous asked: Tried Thom Browne oxfords and they fit funny. What's the general consensus on a runner up in the OCBD game?
I would check out Mercer, BBBF or Kamakura.
