While I couldn't agree with a "no cotton" rule, it certainly does seem...

I never noticed the big arm holes, but I always wear turtlenecks under a sport jacket or sweater, so it's a non-issue for me. Yes, wear mine under a cardigan which itself has smaller armholes, thus cleaning up the fit. I have three of them from winter 09, I think if you didn't notice the...

Anyone else buy lots of Lands End? I buy from them mostly because they have a huge volume of medium-talls but some of their clothes have too "relaxed" of a fit whereas some others are reasonable. Me: 6'1", 38" chest, 15.5 neck, 35" arm, 33" waist, 32.5-3 inseam. I find their long sleeve pima polos not too big-fitting. Their turtlenecks, on the other hand, have really huge arm holes. They have a "tailored" line of clothes, haven't tried them yet..

I've politely asked someone about where they found a jacket but I wouldn't refer to another man's pants b/c straight men shouldn't be examining what bottoms other men wear. That would be referring to another man's lower body- awkward. It's best to ask only about something above the waist- outerwear or headwear, or below the pants- shoes. Anything worn agains the skin, e.g. a shirt, is a bit more "intimate". When I've asked a perfect stranger where he got something, I...
just IMO.. camel hair = beige which is an earth tone; grey is, IMO, a metallic. The two don't go well together. Beige + navy or other earth tones is better.

on the topic of underwear t-shirts... I know I can find 60% cotton/40% polyester white medium tall t-shirts at JC Penney or 100% polyester black medium tall t-shirts at REI but.. anyone know where I can find white 100% synthetic medium tall t-shirts? Synthetic as in fully polyester or maybe with some spandex blended in, but not cotton. I need something as cool and as light-colored as possible to wear under a white or light blue dress shirt.
