My gut feeling is that tan should be the color of your first poplin suit. Then olive.Hi all, starting to look towards spring/summer and investing in a poplin suit. O'Connell's has three color options: British tan, Olive, and Oyster. All look attractive but I'm drawn most to British tan. Was hoping for some insight as to the classic choice for a first piece.
I have always found them to be well made and well proportioned. I often thought that if JAB had offered them in guaranteed to wrinkle oxford as opposed to treated pinpoint, they might have retained more of the Trad customer base. I have, however, no recent experience with them.I received a Jos. A Banks Travelers shirt as a gift five years ago and it was and is very surprisingly high quality. My Q is are they still good shirts? I'm trying to find a replacement for Brooks Brothers since their sizing has gone haywire and quality may be changing with new ownership. Thanks in advance for an answer.
Hi, sorry for the late reply. I love the Alden Tassels. It was my first pair of shoes that were bought for me actually that's currently in my collection. I think the cordovan is definitely the way to go and looks great. I just bought the black Gucci bits and love them.Congrats - how do you like the Alden Tassels?
I went with the black Gucci silver horsebit and really enjoy them! I would imagine those are perfect for wall street!
Congrats! They're quite comfortable and make a nice jingle. I am likely going with the Alden Tassels next. The other shoe I've been eyeing is the Belgian Shoe company's Mr Casual model. Another hit on the Street.Hi, sorry for the late reply. I love the Alden Tassels. It was my first pair of shoes that were bought for me actually that's currently in my collection.

How stable is your weight? If it is trending downward or stable, this is fine. If it wanders upward, the 36 might be the better choice. Happy birthday! Nice belt.
Did you also go with O'Connells house brand for your poplin suits?Like others above, over the past three-plus decades of suit wearing, I've owned poplin in, I believe, every color it came in: navy, tan, stone (oyster), olive and gray.
If I had a need for them, I'd gladly buy them all again as I loved those suits - very comfortable in the summer and opened up all sorts of fun shirt-tie-shoes combination options.
