I own several oxford cloth shirts. None are button down. Mine come from H&K, T&A, Finamore, Hawes and Curtis ( old owner) The Finamore was bought this year.
Both have a down market vibe. However, if that doesn't matter buy either. eg: http://starcasm.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Nikolaj_Coster-Waldau.jpg http://galleryhats.com/fashion-straw-fedora-hat-for-men.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-trJ-QUw-s8k/T0kS42jefcI/AAAAAAAAAIs/Uc9YLua6gSk/s1600/Ibrahim+Ferrer.jpg (the late great Cuban singer- featured in the film: Buena Vista Social Club)
In my day (1980s) most of their merchandise, while high quality, was very"sharply"styled. What the cast of the Sopranos would have worn had the series beenset in the 80s.
That's amazing. The brand probably dates from the 70s. Before that I believe it was exclusively couture. I do not remember that it was ever considered a quality brand like Cardin and YSL were at their inception around the same time. I guess I was wrong.. Not that I wouid have known, in those days I wore J Press, Chipp and Paul Stuart
Unless they've improved, Lands End quality is questionable.I speak from personal experience, but not w/ gingham shirts
Very high quality shirts. Not much in button down. http://www.hilditchandkey.co.uk/Gentlemen/Shirts/Button-Down/Default.aspx
"The reason I believe the coat is too small is because it's tight in the shoulders and restricts a lot of movement with my arms. It also poofs out a bit in the chest area when I have it buttoned." You've answered your own question. At my local Norstroms I am not aware that there are any "stylists", just not very knowledgeable employees. As for Ted Baker, from the website and the pricepoint, it looks like faddish junk.
Congratulations on you upcoming wedding! Not to rain on your parade, but unless you are a very difficult fit, you could probably do better with high-end TRW. 1. jacket pulls away from neck. 2,Jack too snug at button point 3. Jacket possibly too short- belt buckle shows under lower button or because quarters too open. 4.Vest gorge too low 5 Trousers too narrow- look out of balance 6. Back looks pretty good.
Color is OK. Cut is terrible: shoulders too big and square; jacket is too short and tight- the model's belt buckle is showing under the button. The suit is a bad caricature of the current style fad. Look further. http://www.blacklapel.com/suits/solid-gray.html
