Here are my AE Fullertons I've had awhile.    On paper, they seem like a weird contradiction: suede, cap toe, balmoral, with double-oak soles.   But, I loved the look of the suede Fullerton the moment I first saw them on AE's website and have really enjoyed owning them.     
I just visited the NYC store for the first time and ended up buying the exact same OCBD bradp posted above (red and blue vertical stripes) in the NY Slim 16/36.5 .   The fit seems pretty good, though a little aggressively slim in the chest considering it's not their slimmest shirt (I got NY, not Tokyo).   I am a little confused on sizing. The website says a 16/36.5 NY slim should have a 47" chest and I'm measuring mine at more like 45"...maybe 46" if I really pull the...
 Yeah I'm sure that this is the idea though it is very poor logic. Google will show you a million discussions on this exact issue, and I feel like it is has become pretty well established among people who know menswear that working cuffs on RTW really makes no sense and shouldn't be done. On my plaid Havana, I wonder if the Suit Supply tailor would have said he/she could make the plaid match while shortening the sleeves at shoulder.
^^^ Should there be a petition or something to get them to stop? I can't read through this entire thread, but is this feature not infuriating to others as well?
HAVANA REVIEW   I ordered a Havana sport coat in the brown plaid. My chest measures 42" and I am 6'2". The 42L (my usual size) was too tight and pulling. Going up to the 44L, the fit was really nice. The measurements on the SS website corresponded exactly to the how I measured the jackets - the 44L chest is 23" across.   The cloth is quite nice and I really like the light construction of the Havana. I am pretty traditional when it comes to fit, and I must say the...
 Yeah, I guess you guys have a point there. Though this one had more of an open-air party feel, less about getting nerdy about microbrews. I recently went to Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas - 3 days of punk shows in downtown las vegas. The combination of the punk scene thing with  downtown Vegas in general, it was pretty nonconformist and edgy.
The event was a large beer fest thing at the Nationals stadium, so it was a pretty representative cross section. It wasn't some specific interest group event or private party. But other than a few sub-culture people lurking in the woodwork, I maintain that the masses of Washingtonians are boring conformists, and delusionally self-important to boot. DC had some edge to it through the 90s - other than family weekends to see the monuments, it was actually a bit of an urban...
 I've noticed DC women are very much like this. I live in nearby Bmore myself, but  was at a large event in DC recently and a friend starting pointed out how all these girls were wearing the same/extremely similar items, it was to the point of being bizarre. It led to a discussion about DC people being very conformist by nature (everyone is looking "to get ahead" at some establishment job) as well as not being a very creative population of people. Sortof a different point...
Shane Macgowan looks really cool in anachronistic hats like bowlers. There should really be a thread on Shane Macgowan's style.
Wow, you're right. I thought when I checked awhile back I saw that Larchmont and Kenilworth were on the same last, but I just checked AEs website and see I was completely wrong.
