Some of the Bradford custom fit linen shirts from RL, which I just got over the weekend, have no logos. Also, some people may think that "SF masses" is an oxymoron

I'm assuming there must be some real merit to having a little bit of polyester (e.g. 3%) but the thought of not wearing natural fibers galls me. Must be due to SF-induced snobbery and prejudice.

Why don't you just rent for this time round? Just go and look for it early to ensure that you've got one that fits. I think a dinner jacket/tuxedo is a long-term investment thing, and you should not purchase one in a rush. I think it is worth saving up and spend a bit more money and get one that truly fits you and that you are happy with. Better still, save more money and have an MTM or bespoke one made.

Does that only leave me with Topsiders to work with? Quote: Originally Posted by jgan85 boat shoes.. +1. I wore off-white linen trousers,...
Can't you just take it to a jewellery/watch store and have it adjusted to the desired length?

Seriously, and out of curiosity, am I the only OCD-afflicted person here who has his shirts washed after every use? The collar and cuffs get stained even after a shirt is worn for 8 hours, not to mention sweat etc. I can't imagine wearing the same shirt again after all that without washing.
