If you have a fit you like, MTM can work. I've had the best luck actually sending the shirt to the tailor and having them measure. I see a lot of people of this forum take their own measurements and then say they messed up. It's nice that you can pick the fabric - it gives way more choices than RTW. As cyc wid it says, it may need some tweaking to realy nail the fit but any decent MTM tailor will want your repeat business so will try and improve the fit with time.

I live on the coast of Massachusetts where the typical "well dressed" uniform is boat shoes, khaki shorts and a button down/polo. What are some items I can pickup to deviate from the norm that won't leave me sweating buckets in 80-95+ weather with high humidity? I am probably going to pickup some quoddy boat mocs because they're different enough from regular boat shoes that I like them a lot. I was thinking of picking up some espadrilles, but it seems that only women wear them. Linen pants have been suggested as an alternative to shorts. You guys have any other suggestions?

Brooks Brothers is immeasurably better than H&M, although I can't speak to the quality of Uniqlo.

Looking for a plain black fitted cap. Any nice alternatives to New Era?

Also, looking for black sneakers similar to Common Projects' Achilles model, but with white soles. The only CPs out right now that fit that description are perforated, unfortunately. Anything I should look into that isn't full of holes?

Sure, linen pants, or linen pants with a little cotton, or even masculine capri pants, such as http://camp1899.com/him/tag/mens-capri-pants

Focusing on lighter-weight materials for shirts (e.g., lightweight cotton probably <= 6 oz., linen, and bamboo) could make at least as much of a difference.

Masculine Capri pants?

Can someone revoke this guy's Senior Member title?

And if you're feeling like a real ubermensch, slip into a pair of ballet flats.

Unlike most capri pants, those look reasonably masculine.

Looking for a slim fitting OTR trouser. Unfortunately can't go MTM or bespoke at the moment.

I could go to Mens Wearhouse or JAB, but I'm having aecond thoughts about getting an OTR trouser there, and getting tailored at the same place. I hears bad things about these two chains on SF.

Preferably wool. I am 5'11 and weigh 140's, if that matters

Hi SFers, I'm looking to get a pair of black lace-ups/oxfords/captoes, and a pair of walnut lace-ups/oxfords/captoes. Any recommendations for makers that sells in the $250-$350 range?

Currently my favorite is a of Magnanni I bought last summer, as pictured in my avatar, and love it in terms of looks.

maybe get the same pair in a different color

I'd say the J Crew club shorts are fairly slim.
