That would be lovely. I'm ready to pull the trigger the second it hits.
Josh, any plans for bringing back some standards like Cone 13.5oz?
I don't know. I don't actually have my hands on the GUSTIN shirt, I'm just comparing the numbers with my own shirts. I need to spend some more time measuring my shirts to pin down what I consider acceptable. But generally I use my BB slim fit dress shirts as a bench mark. I like the fit and prefer not to go slimmer. I also don't think a work shirt, by definition, should be tight fitting. It should be a bit less slim than a dress shirt.
I LOVE that new work shirt...but it's really too trim, with the chest measurements being smaller than my Brooks slim fit dress shirt. It's amazing to me that Gustin even came out with a "sllim fit" line...and of course, the shirt looks like it will be too short to tuck in. Please, Gustin, some shirts for people who aren't skinny 20-somethings?
Fair enough. Besides, one of the key elements of knowing how to dress is knowing how to dress appropriately for the occasion. Knowing when to wear a t-shirt, and knowing when not to.
Oh, I thought there was a Josh Gustin behind the whole thing. Or is he just one of many?
So being blue-collar means dressing slothfully? Have some pride. Fine, don't wear a sport coat, but tuck in your shirt, polish your shoes, etc. This slovenliness is a new trend: I bet 50 years ago even the poorest were well groomed.Gustin's website clearly states that he's aiming at a happy medium with respect to shirt tails such that one can tuck or not, which means that they'll be too short for some and too long for others. That's one reason why I'm staying away from his...
If by old men you mean people who've graduated from college and have moved past crashing on a friend's sofa--people who don't wear jeans to work--I guess you're right.Why are you wearing t-shirts? I pretty much only do in the summer, on the beach or doing house work, and no, I don't tuck. Polos and rugby shirts also can be left out and are made for that, but even then, depending on the context, one should consider tucking in a polo, especially if you're wearing with...
And so you should!On a completely unrelated note, I have been wearing my new Ventile-cloth baseball cap in some heavy rain, and I wish to report that the stuff works as advertised. I hope Gustin keeps offering items made of it. It's a very good thing.So here's my wish: a Ventile M65 jacket.
Fine, dress like a kid. Or a slob.Just please, let's agree that one should zip up one's fly, if that's not too much trouble.
