    The loafer has come back big in the last little while as a good shoe, no longer only for old guys

    My business casual is the same as everyday minus the jacket and tie. Business casual is always nice when you wear a suit for the first four days of the week. I have enough shirts to just wear them as you can see. This is not including the ones at the cleaners. I need a bigger closet. Not a fan of polo shirts unless on a golf course.Shirts.jpg

    Business casual, as stated above is comprised of business formal sans jacket/tie. Brooks Brothers would be an excellent place to start. I personally shop there, as well as J.Crew and Banana as I can enjoy some easy on the wallet prices during sales.

    I'd hit up an outlet mall and buy shirts from Brooks Bros & Boss.

    I am big fan of Hugo Boss's "formal clothes". Trim fit dress shirts and 'James' style slacks (all slightly altered at Nordstrom) do it for me. Nordstrom's 1901 brand shirts are also very nice quality for the price.

    Bonobos is a brand I have recently come to love. Their slim fit pants are great and they are considerably cheap in comparison to the quality and cost of other brands. They sell them at Nordstroms or off their website.

    Bonobos Men's Clothes - Pants, Shirts and Suits ...They've got 20% off coupons going on right now. Definitely a solid pair of slacks in my opinion. They run a bit long but it isn't anything your tailor can't hem up quickly.

    Shoes - Ferragamo Drivers / Johnston & Murphy / Allen Edmonds
    Shirts - YSL / Hugo Boss / Peter Millar
    Belt - Boss / Coach (Just brown leather, no flashy designs)
    If it Floats, Flies or F**ks, Rent it.

    Fit and material is more important than brand to me. I love a well tailored shirt and probably won't have any that arent in the future. This is something new for me over the last year.

    I wish there was sites, I could shop different looks. I'd rather shop a look than put something together myself.

    how much are you looking to spend on the shoes and the clothes?

    I tend to wear alden shoes and allen edmonds. i prefer leather soled shoes, but that is just me. they last about 5 times longer than most shoes. I have really wide feet that are hard to fit. so i always pay out the nose for good shoes.

    I always wear ralph lauren polo's. they hold up really well after many washes.

    i am not a big brooks brothers fan, they look like their styling never left the 80's and 90's. it feels i don't know like old people clothes.

    always feel your dress shirts. cheap ones just feel cheap and wear out in 3 months. good shirts hold up for a long time.
