Yeah, totally. If the jeans have a hem > 7", you should probably be able to fit the leg opening over the top of the boot. That's the only thing I would take into consideration.

LL Bean has a good return policy, so you can always send them back if you don't like them.

I need shirt help. I'm 6'5" and 180-185, and I'm finding most shirts are either too baggy or the sleeves are too short, or both. I have a RRL shirt that fits slim and sleeves are just about good (wouldn't approve for a dress shirt under a suit jacket, but long enough), but it's hit and miss there and those can be pricey if not gotten on sale.

Recommend me shirt brands (long sleeve, button up) that will fit slim and has decently long sleeves. Prefer to stay under $100 (can look for sales), definitely under $130.

There's no H&M online US store nor one for Austrailia, but here's basically the same one I have from the UK online store.

Slim khaki Shorts. Not too much.
post #3248 of 4947
Some info on..........Khakis? I need to buy a pair that its flexible enough for business casual fridays or to go out in meaning they would have to fit both dress shoes + sneakers (sorta redundant point but I digress). My thighs are on the thick side so historically I've been staying away due to laziness and I just wear the same 2,3 pair of jeans all the time. Any brands I should look to? I live in Hong Kong so gap/j-crew are no go. Club Monaco is pretty damn over priced here for some reason. I can also check out perhaps H&M/Uniqlo. Are these the right places to go? One more thing, should I just get a pair made, or for a "cheaper" option, but one from a place (said above), and just make some minor tailoring/alterations? Thanks

I'm looking for a pair of brown sneakers, probably leather, that would go well with chinos or jeans. and either a braided belt or a bridle leather belt with a brass buckle.

I'm looking at these Lacoste sneakers because I like the colors and the brass eyelets, but I don't know what the level of quality is.

What are some good options here?

BONUS QUESTION: How about a braided belt?

Ha, ha, I have maybe four sweaters that I wear regularly, and three of them are H&M. Quality is lousy, but they all fit long and slim, and I don't think I've paid as much as $20 for any of them.

Yeah, what P_F said. Click on the Men's Clothing sub-forum - don't linger or attempt to read any of the threads - and click on the Cotton Works or Modern Tailor affiliate links. They give you instructions for measuring your shirts, and you can get them pretty cheaply from either one (I want to say that Cotton Works is somewhat better but somewhat more expensive, but you could maybe scan the affiliate threads for more information).

Any clue about their sizing?
