I like Acne, goofy styling and all.

But I won't defend those shoes. Egads.
post #62732 of 109053

Well, I like some pieces be themselves, such as jeans and outerwear.

Even if the styling is intentionally goofy (and I can enjoy that), some stuff is among the worst I've ever seen. A bit like that pink poly jacket from CDG which was discussed here some time ago.

How is this pronounced? Is it GYA-ku-soh or GEE-ya-ju-soh, or some other way?

I'll be tucking them in. Because i'm a short motherfucker.

Can anyone answer this? I was going to ask the same thing.

Yeah, ESF doesn't even seem to mean slim fit, much less extra. Not sure what the deal is.

Anyway, tapering is going to do exactly that; taking in the sides and making it narrower at the hem than at the chest. The primary pitfalls, IME, are that you risk making the chest tighter, you lose whatever stitching was done on the original seam, and it doesn't do anything about poofiness in the back when you tuck.

Darting addresses the poofiness and doesn't mess with the seams, but there are a few caveats: if there's a box pleat, the tailor will probably need to sew it down and bring it to the hem of the shirt, BoO-style. Otherwise, you end up with a weird hunchback look from the extra material around the pleat. If there's no box pleat, the tailor can add two darts off to the side. You have the option of having them go all the way up to the yoke, which risks making the back too tight, or having them go partway up, which risks looking stupid if your tailor does a bad job integrating the end of the seam back into the fabric. I prefer this last option, but you need a decent tailor or you end up with a bizarro franken-shirt.

Regardless, you should probably wash and dry (or dry clean, if that's your thing) your shirts at least once before taking them in to account for potential shrinkage.

Solidarity.

I recently, and have another 4 shirts left to be darted, 8 in total.

Tailor could not sew down the box pleat. FWIW it is not as exaggerated as NWI says. It is not Frankenstienien...
I much prefer the darts to side seam as NWI says is true, you make the overall shirt very tight fitting in the chest area.

I had darts put into 5 slim fit Uniqlo OCBD and it really helped with the blousing in the back. It is now pretty damn slim. Now I think I can go back to the regular fit OCBD and just have the darts put into account for the waist. Arms, chest, and back is pretty fitted now from working out bigstar[1].gif

Yet to try the spread collar shirts from Uniqlo, which from quick glance, had darts go from the far side all the way up to the yoke. Crossing my fingers that the chest/back was not too effected.

I was just trying to accomplish minimizing the back blousing, which darting did.

anyone interested in slim dress shirts (but not interested in spending lots) should take a look at TM Lewin. I have a 10" drop (40" chest, 30" waist) and I wear the 15.5 collar 'fully fitted' and it fits perfect with no alterations. First dress shirts i've found that fit well without alterations. They're expensive on normal price, but they go on sale 4 for £100 very often, and theres usually coupon codes you can google on top of that. I just got 4 new shirts for £20 each (like $30 or so) The poplin fabric is okay, but the twill is very soft.

All my Epaulet shirts have both a box pleat and darts.  It's not the end of the world.
