    We are obviously cut from different cloths. No woman will ever part me from my turtleneck jumpers

    Your outfit is starting to sound very good indeed mate!

    As for the boots/shoes debate, I would get the boots, as they have more of an edge and are also perfect for this type of year. But then, I prefer edgy styling whereas you seem more traditional. I would be wearing my boots with skinny jeans tucked into them!

    Let us know how the date goes!

    Thanks

    Thanks for all your help. Jay I looked at the tie and am severely tempted to get it!

    In regard to what you were saying, Pin Money, I used to dress more edgy but turned 30 a few months back and thought I should start to dress a bit more traditionally so trying to update my wardrobe.

    But thanks again.

    One last thing tho, do you guys have any recommendations for camel/brown coats around the £200-300 pound mark? In terms of manufacturers?

    What kind of camel coat are you looking for? A trench/mac? A peacoat? Or a longer Epsom style overcoat?

    Haha. I would agree but I decided to use this as an opportunity for reinvention after a long term relationship went tits up! Stupid reason I know. But just had to be done

    We've all been there! I still think there's room in your life for boots instead of shoes though.
