I recently got a new Navy suit that I am very excited about and I want to add some accessories to wear with it. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure about what to get. These are the accessories that…Continue
"Yeah. They should complement - sometimes ignore one another - but never insult or match one another exactly. I love pocket squares - ain't wild about that one Craig's wearing, though. A red one looks great with a black jacket and a pale…"
"Shoes: With a navy suit you can wear both brown and black. I wear a suit every day for my job (I'm an attorney). With my navy suit I wear a black cap toes (Cole Haan, Nordstroms) or brown wing tips (Hugo Boss).
Socks: You can get…"
"Haha this was awesome. Daniel Craig is a boss (although, I know that if I tried that it wouldn't look as good). The matching tie and pocket square does not look good.
I wouldn't do anything crazy with the pocket square. I'm…"
"RE: the pocket squares - any number of things you can do with'em. You can wear the square banker - just a neatly-pressed linen handkerchief, a la Mad Men - a more businesslike use of them. Or a plain or pattern one that complements the tie BUT…"
"Thanks everyone for the help! I'm new to having a nice suit that fits me well and I was pretty excited about what to add to it. You guys were really helpful. It seems that there are standards for some things (shoes, socks) while other parts are…"
"Shoes: Dark brown works with navy and dresses it down a bit. Burgundy looks good too. Black dress navy up, and it a better look for evening.
Socks: Red is fine.
Pocket square: Start with plain white linen or cotton, then work your…"
"Get dress cowboy boots, they'll take care of the 'individuality' ... and you don't need to coordinate socks. Socks always struck me as a strange area for 'individuality' anyway.
Pocket squares are too flashy for…"
I recently got a new Navy suit that I am very excited about and I want to add some accessories to wear with it. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure about what to get. These are the accessories that I'm wondering about:Shoes: I've heard differing opinions on the shoes for a navy suit. I've heard "only wear black shoes," "only wear brown shoes." and "try something different like burgundy shoes." So I'm kinda confused on this front. Realistically though, it probably doesn't matter much!Socks: I'm…See More
"I second the nursing! The female to male ratio in nursing school would be through the roof! In all actuality though, its still a great job and there are a shortage of nurses in the US.
What is your major right now? And what are some of your…"
"Straight from one of the ladies I've been talking to. Compressed version: she works at a game store and finds that the major attitude is dismissive of her being any expert on the subject. Encourages teaching children about strong females in…"
Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More
"Forget the books. Set an example by being the kind of man you would want your sister to end up with. And set the expectations (politely) for the live-in about how he needs to act in the home. Some rent, yard work, clean the bathrooms, etc. Not try…"
"I live in the Land of 10,000 lakes and grew up here fishing a number of them. Unfortunately, geography and the type of fish you're looking to catch plays a large role into how to fish. I don't have any experience in Nevada, so…"
"I'm well aware that this dynamic can exist between two men as well, I just thought that most of the guys here wouldn't have any insight on that situation, which I found equally confusing. I've never wanted anything like a male-female…"
"Thank you for the insight. I'm realizing that I value traditionally masculine attributes much more than traditionally feminine attributes like being supportive and nurturing, which never even occurred to me as something to view positively…"
