Some of their stuff is nice, but most of it is way way way over the top. I walk in there and wonder, who the fuck wears this shit? Then I'm like

What's more appropriate for a formal interview, navy or dark grey?

dark grey, probably. i think navy is considered less conservative (although I personally think a lot of people look better in navy suits than standard charcoal/dark grey).

I need two pairs of shoes. I already have my black and brown, I just want more. I wear them for 12-15hrs a day, and I don't want to put them on the next day.

Something cheap. $125 each or so.

Also considering another pair of boots and a pair of brown shoes.

Giltman has decent A Testoni shoes on sale on and off. I would check that out.

i dropped a bit on jcrew quoddy chukkas. pretty good investment if you wait for the 20% off coupon. i think it was like 200 though. so maybe 75 bucks or so more.

+1. Either is equally TCR as long as the suits are solid and not striped.

ya tbh this is prolly the best answer. one or the other may be more formal, but only slightly. go with whatever looks better.

Never had a pair. Any feedback from anyone?

Also, anyone have a suggestion for a shoe I can wear out with jeans and a button up and a jacket, but also with a suit (at the office, not an interview or a wedding). I dont know if such a thing exists.

I don't know how lax your firm is, but I sure as hell would not wear those at the office.

Not to trail, but maybe to sit at at the desk all day... maybe. Yeah, probably not...


My firm is more "runway fashion" than "business fashion," if that makes sense. It's littered with giant (expensive) watches, gucci ties and a brand logo every time you turn around. I'm, by far, the most conservatively dressed one there and the youngest male by at least 2 or 3 years.

don't buy from gilt. i think it's more important to find good fitting stuff than reliable name brands.

I have to agree. There is some truth to this.

Euro sizing is pretty easy to work with.


Also, must be a leather sole. Fuck rubber soles.
