    Happy to help. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. If you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate in the least.

    Also, I think I should mention generally that I have no interest in promoting any of the brands I recommend in this post (or any other post).

    Please keep this blog going. I have zero sense of fashion. I learned more from this blog in half an hour than I have throughout my 6 years in financial services.

    A few brief follow up questions.

    Are cream/peach based shirts with patterns acceptable for a job on Wall Street? How about gray?

    In Part I, you seem to advise against the BB 346 line. However, are these suits acceptable for day to day in office use for those not yet able to spend up on a wardrope of $700-$1500 suits?

    This post is really well written thanks. Do you think it’s alright to wear button down collars at night to say a restaurant or a night club?

    Or should I opt for some sort of collared shirt that isn’t a button down collar when i go out at night?

    I”m confused because I want a collared shirt to wear both during the day and at night. Which is a good collar for a shirt for this purpose?

      I think it depends on where you’re going at night. For the most part, the world is becoming increasingly casual. Some of the coolest restaurants and bars in New York, L.A., Toronto, etc. are now very much “jeans, nice shoes + whatever you really want” kind of places. Henleys, t-shirts and blazers can all be appropriate in the same place now.

      For shirts, I think you can go a long way for very little money. Places like Uniqlo have great stuff that fits well – and the fit is really the key. A beautifuly made shirt that fits you poorly will look cheap – while a $20 shirt that you have tailored to fit you well will look far more expensive. In other words, I say get a button-down collar shirt (if you live in NYC or Europe, I highly recommend Uniqlo for these), and a more formal shirt as well. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, just spend the extra $7 a shirt to get them tailored.
