This makes me angry. I would jump at the chance to earn some very decent money. I'm...
^the lambswool crew/v-neck sweaters for $30 are pretty good. i don't think the cardigans are worth the extra $10 though. i thought the lambswool would be itchy but they're pretty comfortable. you should stick to the lighter colors - light gray, royal blue - the black and navy wools have a lot of discolored impurities/lint fyi - i had to size down one in the sweaters. i'm a standard medium in uniqlo and i had to take a small. the medium ran baggy in the sleeves for me....
i'm looking at the uk site and everything is marked down 10-40 pounds while ny is still retail anyone who's looking to buy cashmere sweaters from uniqlo, spend the extra money and get the more expensive ($150) middle gauge ones on sale. they're more substantial and feel nicer. the $100 ones that are on sale this week for $60 are really thin and light/flimsy. feels really cheap tbh
I never give gifts, but you seem like you've got a great thing going for you. I like the idea of giving inexpensive regional stuff local to where you're from (food, maple syrup, cheese, wine) along with the peanut butter/reeses/nutella. That stuff can act as mini gifts for the parents as well. You should splurge a bit on the wallet that she wants and get her a larger sized soft textured/patterned scarf that she can wrap around (think stephan schneider scarves). Or if...
H&M Easy Iron shirts fit me really well. For ~$15, they are pretty good beater shirts for unbuttoned casual workplaces. Instead of darts, these shirts have two felled seams running down the back from shoulder yoke to shirt tail. When worn, they're noticeable but not bad imo. The shirts have high armholes, slim sleeves, and square cuffs. They have small straight collars that I have to leave unbuttoned. IMO, these small collars only look good on guys with smaller...
uniqlo is fine but they have a really limited selection of colors. i'm looking for solid colors and they don't even stock a basic light blue
Anyone have recommendations on a slim fitting straight collar no chest pocket shirt for tucking in? Basically I want apc or jil sander shirts for ~$50 - no back pleats, slim sleeves, rounded cuffs, and maybe back darts. Express fitted shirts with the back darts fit me well in the body but I don't like the pointed collars and the sleeves are a little long. This is basically the shirt i want but i'm looking to spend $50ish Are there any shirts in my price range that...
