it's an off the rack shirt. clearly it's not going to fit you perfectly....

you're paying for the details (better seamwork, quality buttons), better fabric, better construction (single needle stitching). none of this matters if you dont think they're worth the cost...
if you dont want quality but just want a perfect fit then by all means buy a cheaper shirt and have that tailored.


if you want a perfect fit and better fabrics you could probably go custom. measure your favorite fitting shirts and send measurements in to cego shirts or mytailor or go to a good local tailor and have them draw up a template for you that you can tweak.

Guys I really need help! I have a black peacoat and I need shoes that go well. Please give me some recommendations in the $100-$200 price range that go well with black. I'm 23 and am usually wearing dark raw denim.

For peacoat weather, something we Bostonians are all too familiar with, I personally go with the attractive-yet-durable and not too expensive Timberland Earthkeepers City Chukka:

These offer decent protection from the elements, retail for around $140 (I found mine for $95) and go very well with jeans. What I like about the Earthkeepers is you can baby them and keep them nice and polished, or beat the hell out of them for a more distressed look. They'll stand up to both. Some people complain about the outsole not lasting incredibly long. I've had mine for more than a year and have had no problems. One thing though, they tend to run a half size big (I'm a 10 in most things but a 9 1/2 in these).

Over the past 12 months I manage to drop 100 lbs. I celebrated this week by going to the Gucci boutique and buying a very beautiful leather bomber jacket pictured below:

386

I intend to wear it mostly with basic solid color tees. Elegantly simple. Sometimes I will be wearing sneakers (e.g. converse chuck taylors) other times more stylish boots but mostly casual.

My question is: In your opinions, what would be the best jeans to match this beautiful leather bomber jacket - especially in terms of the wash.

Some basic background info: I am 6 foot, have an athletic/strong build (after a lot of effort) with medium/broad shoulders and I like to wear all my jeans slightly below the waste. My point is I am not the skinny slim type that can pull off tight jeans. I think a normal straight cut is best for me but I have very little experience in this area so that is just a best guess based on some guidelines I have seen published on GQ and ASKMEN.com.

Please feel free to suggest any brand, any price range. I am really looking to create the perfect "uniform" and I want them to be perfect compliments.

Thank you in advance for any input any of you might have.

Sorry for the GQ pic, but anyone know of a copy of this shirt? It's rag and bone, but at $255 no way in hell is that in my budget. Thanks.
And actually really digging this too right now: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

RRL Wool Hunting Sweater. Anybody have thoughts on it? Or even better fit pics if you own it.

Sweater like this SNS one:

that isn't ~$300 (by that I mean, one that is much less)... Thanks.

And if anyone just wants to recommend me a decent brand for sweaters that aren't super expensive in general, would appreciate it.

I want to preface this post with the fact that I do understand that this is a MEN'S style forum, but I've got a question about snagging my lady friend a pair of selvedge denim for Christmas this year...

 

Simply put, the selection out there for women's selvedge is slim, to say the least. Finding a jean that's cut for a woman's body is not easy and on top of that, finding a sweet pair with an exposed selvedge edge is even harder. I've already looked around on Self Edge and Blue in Green and I haven't found anything worthwhile that actually has a selvedge edge.

 

The thing that I'm mainly looking for is a really low rise, about 8-8.5 inches, and a slim thigh, about 10-10.5 inches. Any suggestions are appreciated!

Congrats on your weight loss. You should look into some APC New Standards. They're a slim straight cut that works for petty much everyone.
