What color? They're okay. I'm not too sure that I'm a fan. They run the risk of looking dated if styled improperly, and doubly so if you are going to do the tan.

Personally, I like loafers for men. Something simple in suede will go with everything and last forever. If you are really wanting a lace-up, and your idea of business casual is closer to casual than business, then I like something kind of like these these, something fashionable without trying too hard. Actually, that website is apparently having a men's shoe event, so you might want to have a quick browse.


I have a pair of tan J.Crew suede chukksa I really love and have paired with chinos in a business casual environment and they've been really well received. I'm really looking for another pair of shoes I can roll with business casual or just casual. Looking for a good pair of driving loafers or mocassins. Any suggestions there?

Let's not fool ourselves into the belief that BR quality hasn't gone downhill over the last 5 or 6 years


I dunno, just got Mr. Smcc a suit with their 50% off sale items sale, and it's pretty damn nice.


I think both stores are hit or miss with womenswear. Can't speak to men's apparel, but J. Crew's quality is just not there anymore, and Banana uses too much polyester (which is the devil, as far as I am concerned; natural fibers only, kthx).

Also, am so jealous of you shopping for your husband! I love men's clothing. I don't know what it is. The sight of sleek cuff links or a well-tailored trouser makes me weak.

Chukkas, yes! In a chukka version, absolutely, because it's a more youthful silhouette. I was actually going to suggest you purchasing the same style in chukka, but then I forgot.

Ugh, just found and love theeesseeeee. http://www.zappos.com/cole-haan-lenox-h ... ock-milled.

The best brands for men, in my opinion? Cole Haan or Gordon Rush. Not the cheapest. J.D. Fisk is also great, and more affordable.

Ugh I know me too. I like shopping for him more than I like shopping for me. Sort of.

as for fabric this suit is 90% wool, 8% cashmere, so I was pretty happy that the whole thing came out to $150. It was like $700 originally.

Which answers this question - I'm not really nice, I just can't pass up a good sale.

Perfect! That is really great for the price. I'm sure Mr. Grey looks dapper AF in it.

And Bill, in some capacity.

Yeah about as dapper as he gets anyway... and he loves the jacket and keeps wearing it. I've never seen him so excited about clothes. Makes me :)

Yea, I really do like those Cole Haan's. I've never been into shoes, but I've been focusing on them the past couple of months. Since August I've picked up the chukkas + two pairs of AE Park Ave's for business wear. Trying to find some good pieces that I can work into my current business casual rotation and carry over into my daily law school wear next year.

Hey guys quick question, if i withdraw from the LSAT for september now, will it count as one of my attempts to take it?

Meaning if we have 3 chances to take it in 2 years, will this take one of those attempts away? I know i will not get a refund at this point, i just don't want it to count against one of 3 attempts.

That designs comes in a million and ten styles; it's a good one.

And, yes. You're doing well to consider the shoes. They are, in my opinion, the easiest indicator of how much pride someone takes in their appearance, and I think they become doubly important in those professional fields that require their employees to maintain a certain appearance (e.g. law).

as long as you withdraw before the deadline (midnight of the day before) it doesn't count.

The first LR killed me, as for games I only got -2 (wish my other sections were even close to this) and they were stupid mistakes, thought most of it was relatively easy LG wise

That's legit I wore only new balance 574s from like my junior year of hs throughout college these days it's a little more varied usually wear black Lacoste sneakers to work, almost exclusively Birkenstocks outside of work...I also got into high tops and have a pair of ballin sky forces that still smell new and some like mid 90s barkleys that r also fresh2death but get more wear than the sky forces
