Anybody know? Anybody notice the same drop of the use or "pique" or am I imagining that?
Okay. Thanks for the advice. The shirt is sent back. I guess I'll have to lose more weight and maybe go for the slim fit and/or find another brand.   -Stockton
I know that. But other than that, I think the sleeves have way too much extra fabric. The shoulder seams seem to hang off my shoulders a slight bit and there seems too be too much fabric under my arms. Even if the shoulder seems can be corrected, if they need to be, I think the sleeves would become too short, especially should the shirt ever shrink at all.   Like I said, that is a Brooks Brothers (1818) regular fit in small. I tried on a small slim at a BB outlet store...
I ordered this shirt from Brooks Brothers.com. It's a small and regular fit. Unfortunately I'm not happy with the off-the-rack fit like I had hoped. As you can see, I need to lose some weight, but regardless I am not happy with the fit. I need advice. I'm not sure whether to have the shirt tailored or to send it back. Here are a couple of pictures. What do you think?   http://i40.tinypic.com/2csbdb5.jpg   http://i42.tinypic.com/293w1o4.jpg
It seems to be that the classic polo shirts from Polo Ralph Lauren used to be referred to as "pique" on their website and in the stores. Now I can't find any mention of "pique". Instead I see the term "mesh" used everywhere. I'm confused because I seem to recall "mesh" always having been used, even when the term "pique" was, and always thought it was a different, lighter-weight fabric specifically for warm weather.   -Stockton   PS - I've searched Google and haven't...
While the OP of this thread chose to focus on wealth, I think the concern should be more along the lines of not stacking up to how well you dress in terms of education, cultural knowledge (art, philosophy, music, theater, etc.), how well-travelled you are, and a big one that I think tells all - if you're capable of nabbing a woman who is equivalent to how you think of yourself.
This thread's topic is an interesting unresolved question.   Polo Ralph Lauren's small regular fit pique polos fit me perfectly. However, the small interlock polos I've looked at in the stores seem huge and are much bigger than the small pique polos. The custom (slim) fit interlock polos would seem to be the appropriate size, which seems odd since the custom fit pique polos are too small for me. So where I'm left, like the OP, is the fear of the regular fit small...
  I think "rich persons" is relative, but from my experience I think it would be more likely a pretentious, middle-class, nouveau-riche type who purposely wears certain clothes to appear higher status and separate themselves (God forbid somebody not recognize their status!) that was upset somebody "lesser" than them were wearing something they wear.   It's interesting that you say you're autistic. I was wondering if some of the folks on here so focused on clothing might...
  And?   I know what I like. I just worry about wearing shoes that are inappropriate for me somehow. I'm 26, clean cut, and I think loafers or otherwise nice shoes fit my personality, but I still wonder. I've been wearing Ecco Berlin slip on's for the past couple of years and now that I've become acclimated with nice shoes, I'm 'seeing through them - they look cheap and cheesy! I've been looking to upgrade for a while and I really like about 4 different pairs of Allen...
For example, are loafers not appropriate for some men?   Sport coats? Even khakis/chinos?   Can working-class/blue-collar men wear loafers? Non-college graduates?   Is it appropriate to dress in a particular way if you have no friends who dress as nicely?   Is it okay to wear loafers with jeans or casual pants for everyday where when you don't ever dress up further (suit, tie, for work or social occasions like weddings)?   Does any of this stuff...
