    Add a sweater, cardigan, vest, nice tie, suspenders. And buy more than just black slacks...there are plenty of different acceptable colors and patterns you can wear besides black...

    Depends on the budget, Jcrew does some pretty good classic americana biz cas, but make sure you size down. If you have a little bit more of a budget I would try to catch some BBBF stuff on sale or snag it off style forum. If you have money to burn, alot of the more conservative thom browne stuff such as the oxfords are really really nice.

    Brooks Brother Black Fleece. www.brooksbrothers.com . I was really stoned when I reccomended that last night, if I were you I would just go build a baesic wardrop from Jcrew and other brands like that. Once you have all the basics I would try to slowly replace them with higher end staples that you get good deals on. www.gilt.com usually has some sick deals on nice designer stuff and they feature diferent designers every single day (They only ship to the US though). Another place to check out would be www.styleforum.com in their buying and selling mens clothing section,

    Suspenders??? Seriously? Naw man, you gotta be shittin' me. Nobody wears suspenders. Big boys can keep their pants up without any help.

    Dockers khakis, Ralph Lauren Polo shirts, a couple pairs of low-top boots that wear like sneakers, and whatever black/brown belts you happen to like. Maybe throw a couple of CK buttonless shirts in the mix for casual fridays, some kind of leather or wool jacket for chilly mornings.

    anyone recommend me some slim/tailored dress shirts for business wear?

    i like the way the H&M easy iron fits, but the sleeves and length are too short

    Zara and Jcrew (they have a slim cut)

    Uniqlo has nice cuts, but the quality is shit.
