Hey Guys, I'm looking to put together a staple business / casual blue shirt. I've already determined the collar type, cuffs, etc., but I would like to hear some opinions on the different blue fabrics available. So far I started with looking at an end-on-end fabric because I like the subtle texture, but have read that they wrinkle very easily and I would prefer to have a bit of wrinkle resistance. Next I was thinking of going with a twill to get some natural wrinkle...
Slimmer in the arms, chest and waist than a brooks bros sweater of equivalent sizing. I'm a medium in both, but I'm slim so the fit on Inis is a bit more to my liking.
Paul Stuart has some shoes starting at $488 and a couple more in the mid $500s
What are people's thoughts on using the Roma Cutaway as a default collar for both dress shirts and more casual shirts? I might still go with the Ivy Button Down for linen and flannel shirts, but other than those fabrics, it seems the Roma Cutaway is most ideal.
Kent Wang has a good spread collar polo, just picked up a navy one myself. Make sure to size up though as the fit is very slim.http://www.kentwang.com/polos/polo-navy.html
Anyone see where the white checked sport coat from the last picture of the 2014 Spring/Summer collection on the home page is?
Land's End perhaps
As far as sub-$300 shoes that look pleasing, check out Meermin. I find they look very similar to more expensive brands, probably because they are owned by Carmina. http://www.meermin.es/home.php For example:
Well if you want to try it on in person your only bet is probably J Crew, Banana Republic or Hugo Boss. I'd say Suit Supply is better than all three though in construction and cost. Their slimmest fit is the Washington.
The answer is getting the navy London two button suit from Suit Supply for $499. It's cut slim but with a conservative color and lapel so it doesn't look "fashiony" but fits well. At your height and weight it should fit you off the rack with perhaps minor alterations. http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits?prefn1=styleFit&prefv1=Classic-London
