    Allen Edmonds Cavanaugh Fit....

    I purchased a pair of AE Cavanaughs from the ShoeBank. As much as I want to love these shoes, I think they are ready for donation.

While I’m on the subject of Ireland, I only plan on taking one sport coat in the form of a neutral colored Tweed coat. Will that and a handful of wool sweaters be...

    Black Turtleneck under Crew Neck Navy Sweater?

    Concur. 'If' I were going to pair a Turtleneck with a sweater, it would be a V-neck of sort; either V-Neck pullover or Cardigan. Just my opinion though.
