I have a question for you guys. How do you know what is in style or what to buy? I have no friends that wear things like this. A I have one friend that knows what he's doing in terms of dressing but I'm pretty basic. I never really have to dress professionally so maybe that's why I'm out of the loop. I pretty much wear sh1t like this. I spent $96 at old navy the other night and got all this. It's hard for me to spend much more when their sh1t is so cheap. For button up shirts I will go more expensive because I find old navy's style for those are very baggy. I am so so sorry for the size of this picture

Brooks Brothers (Alden-made) unlined loafers. The black and brown are the same how. The tan is an Alden loafer, lined, and not from BB.

It's the young men who dress like old men thread, or, we generally don't chase trends. I'll wear trendier stuff once in a while, but I generally dress like it's the 50s. That classic/traditional stuff kind of transcends trends and always looks good

Very nice, although I truly don't understand how you're comfortable in so many layers.

3 layers is pretty normal
for people with normal body temperature and heat management

you are too muscular so your body is constantly at a higher temperature? ...
sounds reasonable enough

I'd agree with dave. I'm typically too warm in anything including two layers

It's partly because my office is typically about 62 degrees, thanks to a weird HVAC system we have in our suite. But it's also pretty chilly here this week. My sweater is also very lightweight, so it's not providing a lot of warmth.

I was talking to my (only) sartorially inclined co-worker and we were talking about shoes. I showed him the Delrays that I'm thinking of purchasing, which are a blucher style shoe, and he commented that bluchers are not appropriate to wear with suits. Is that accurate? I had not heard that rule before....I can agree that some bluchers wouldn't work, but all?

I ignore that rule entirely. It seems a little too SF-precious to me.

Technically, he's right. But there's definitely certain models that are okay. Cap toe bluchers and plain toe bluchers are probably the next most acceptable.

While I generally adhere to the rule, I do agree.

Maybe it's because I know the difference, but I definitely notice it on someone. While I don't show any disdain for someone wearing bluchers, and most do, I am impressed when I notice someone has oxfords, mainly because they are consciously wearing them. I think oxfords definitely maintain a level of formality and elegance, but some bluchers work with some suits or sportcoat combos.

i have one pair of tan/burnished toe bluchers that i have worn with a suit
but i tend to dress it down ... first of all, the color of the shoes makes it not as formal to begin with
and because of the color, i can only wear it with my navy suit
