I need a basic biz cas wardrobe for the summer. Pretty simple I'm guessing, but just would like confirmation of what I definitely need, and how many of what. Should I get 5 pairs of wool pants, and 10 dress shirts? Was planning on doing BR since they have the sales and also have XS. Also guessing I should pick up a sport coat as well. I have walnut strands and black park aves, but figured only the strands would work for this, so any other good ideas for shoes? I'll be spending a shitton on the pants/shirts since I'm pretty short so I will need everything tailored, so I'd probably be wanting to spend less money on the shoes and upgrade those in the future. TYIA.
Definitely don't need that many pants. Three would be more than enough (navy, charcoal, grey). Also don't need ten shirts. A muted set of five would go a long way (white, blue, a few patterns). The only way anyone would notice is if you get a really bold pattern, and even then it is doubtful that anyone will really care.
As far as shoes go, you may be fine but it couldn't hurt to pick up a pair of brown or merlot shoes. Walnut may stick out, but you're honestly probably good rotating them daily. Black park aves are perfectly fine for biz casual, just a matter of whether you want to put them through high use.
Ok thanks. I'm absolutely clueless about this stuff since I'm K-JD.
