They are the Alden for Epaulet natural longwings. They are fantastic.
I have that same combo
@mike or matt
any chance this factory find can be done in a buttondown collar? I just feel like it would work more as BD than a cutaway for my uses.
In case you guys haven't seen it, we got in a new color in our OCBD arsenal this week.
And as a reminder to everyone, the shirting Factory Finds are closing up tomorrow.
That's a REALLY gnarly red seersucker. Perfect for the upcoming seasons!

Well so I wasn't going to enter the current contest as I was gone all last week, and also after the last two I figured I'd take a pass on this one. But as it happens, the contest got extended, I'm back in the US, and I think there have been some really strong entries so far, so I figure I may as well throw my hat in the ring as well. No women or fancy photoshop in this one:
This is summer 2004 in London. I'm 21 in this picture. I chose this picture because it's a really good example of just how bad my choices were, since my friend here is wearing the exact same shirt as I am, just in a different color. He had either not brought any button-downs to London or his were dirty and he needed to wear something to go out, so I loaned him the navy blue one. I think it actually fit alright on him, which only exaggerates how ridiculously oversized the off-white one is on me. And regardless of fit, it's still a "short-sleeve dress shirt" with a squared-off bottom. From Macy's, as I recall, and probably cost around $20 or $30. It never needed to be ironed so take what you will from that in terms of what the fabric must have been.
Other items of note are the blond tips, goatee, Addidas watch, and jeans I can't exactly place but that were probably from PacSun or some other mall place. Shoes were probably black Skechers derbies. At least I never got caught by the square-toe fad.
Here's last week on the ferry to Tortola from St. John. I'm wearing the Epaulet seersucker button-down and Uniqlo chinos.
