I have to say that ironing has always been a pain. I remember getting a top of the line Rowenta a few years back to see if it might help - it didn't help much. I wonder if the current top of the line models are any better and if I should upgrade - any feedback would be appreciated. Back to the topic. I have tried the Brooks Brothers no iron shirts, and even though they are 100% cotton, they just don't feel the same as a good regular cotton shirt. I still used to wear them...
I see that your internships are 1-year away at this point. When I landed my first job out of college I went out and purchased 5 suits to wear to work. When I got to work I noticed that I was extremely overdressed for work. The dress code was business casual, and polo shirts and khakis were what everyone was wearing. I looked out of place even with a dress shirt and tie. Since then, I have worked at 2 other firms where I noticed the same situation. So I never really had a...
Quote: It may not be worth it, although it's certainly possible. Do the shoes have leather uppers? In my experience, the uppers of a shoe will become a mass of ill-defined creases and scratches long before the average rubber sole will wear out. If they're new, I'd still say keep 'em rubber-soled. Most of the time, rubber soles on 'everyday' shoes are pretty useful - traction, waterproofing, and all the rest... I used to believe that the uppers...
I also avoid Polo because of the polo player logo. There are a few pieces I have considered and they have a polo player in the same color as the fabric so as to be as inconspicuous as possible. I think it detracts from the shirt and I feel that a good shirt should be able to look nice on its own. I agree with others' observations on the quality of Polo products. They aren't all that great, but they are likely the best when discounted ($30 usually) at their price point....
I've noticed that a lot of younger people have very short hairstyles, and as a younger person myself I succumbed to a shorter style during my last haircut, but somehow I prefer my hair now when it has grown back to medium length. What kinds of styles are we wearing now? (please indicate age or occupation to provide context). Pictures and an indication of products used to get that look would be nice also.
Sorry to ask for yet another opinion. Any impressions of Lucky Brand Jeans? I think it also was accused of getting into the men's apparel market too quickly with similar fabrics and washes to the women's products. I saw some at Nordstrom's and I thought that although lower priced than the Sevens they had a similar feel in fabric and cut to some of the Seven pieces.
Personally, I think cargo pants and cargo jeans have been around for too long now. The same applies for the carpenter versions. I tend to cringe when I see them still being sold, and cringe even further when sales staff try to tell me that they are the "in" look.
