I always toss my shirts in the dryer, with the exception of the ones that go to the cleaners for laundering and pressing -- and I'm pretty sure they tumble-dry them as well. They're shirts, for chrissakes. Life's short. If they wear out buy new ones. And maybe I'm lucky but I don't think I've ever retired a quality shirt due to wear. That includes MTM shirts that have been worn in regular rotation for 6 years.
The length of the coat, primarily.
I think it's a good investment. I have a brown linen sport coat that I wear all the time. Besides khaki/stone it also looks great with white trousers and all kinds of gingham / tattersall / etc. shirts that contain white and some lighter colour.
That's kind of my point; you've shown an older man's styled DB coat. Which is perfectly fine, but modern styled DBs are cut more like this:http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits?prefn1=fitID&prefv1=Double%20Breasted
I like it. I assume we're overlooking the too-long pants and the terrible shoes.Impossible to say without seeing it on you. But if you aren't comfortable in it you shouldn't wear it.Pipe down, grampa.
Nice shirt for a first effort. It looks to me like your chest measurement is too big, which would incidentally cause that problem as well.Your photos don't give a great full view of your sleeves but they seem a little long too -- it appears that they're stacking at your forearm.Is your waist comfortable when you sit down? It seems small compared to your hip measurement. (Or maybe you do have a very trim waist? Lord knows I wish I did...)
If only he had a designated Affiliate Thread where he could quickly and easily respond to such things.
A couple of thoughts:1. Normally you don't want to shorten sleeves from the shoulder but if your tailor just took it up 1/4" or so from there, and another 1/4" at the cuff, you'd probably get away with it.2. Suitsupply has a made-to-order service that isn't much more expensive than the equivalent off-the-rack items.
The guy lives about 3 blocks away from me, and while it would be weird to just go over there, I kind of hope I bump into him on the street sometime so that I can ask him what the actual f*ck.
It'll be my pleasure. I'll see if I can round up some others as well.
