thoughts on fit?

snug in shoulders/neck, but not really bad.

wrinkles are due to fabric.

I think you could afford to go up a size, Teger. Shoulders look too small, as does the neck; can you even button that top button?
post #69874 of 103397
no, but there's literally no OTR shirt that fits me in the neck and fits well anyone else. It's a bummer. I ordered a different shirt in size 4, will see how it turns out -- sadly this particular shirt isn't available a size up frown.gif

I don't like those vibskovs. whacky collar/pockets is a bridge too far.

Maybe it's personal preference, but I can deal with a slightly bigger neck if it means the shirt fits well in the shoulders and chest. Then again, I rarely button the top button and sometimes get OCD about the neck on some of my shirts being a little too big, so maybe we're all just unsatisfied with some elements of most OTR shirts.

i've accepted it, mostly because i literally never button the top button. i've also found that shirts that fit well in the neck (dress shirts I get massively tailored) look a little gapey when the top button isn't done.

I'm gonna buy one of those ultra slim italian shirts and see if those work well OTR. or just get unlazy and do MTM.

Dig that shirt Teger, would wear it. I agree with APK though, it looks a bit too snug on the pits and shoulder. I don't mind a tight collar, but shoulders throw it off

Crappy collars are really my only gripe with a lot of the Uniqlo-level shirts. A lot of that stuff isn't bad for what it is, but the non-BD collars on a lot of those shirts just don't look right unless the top button is fastened.

im too young to have experienced margiela in its heyday but ive seen remnants. the og gats to the duvet coat are both considered grails. im not sure if V&R ever produced anything grail-worthy redface.gif
if we take a walk(pun intended) into the baller sneaker thread we can see how bad the margiela sneakers have become since diesel bought them out.
theres still a bunch of stuff id buy/wear from margiela nowadays but its not the same (again, just from what ive seen/handled)
also, renzo sort of forced margiela out of the company, correct? maybe customers have a hard time forgiving that

Well, Diesel is in the picture since 2002 so they can't be that bad... The thing is that Margiela is a designer's designer™, when you remove him you remove the ideas so it becomes and empty shell, then you inject cash so it becomes a beautiful shell on steroids, but it's still empty so after a while it starts eating itself. It's messy.

At least that's how it's perceived, and in the end that's all that matters. Nobody cares about V&R very much.

From my limited fashion expertise I've always had the idea Margiela made clothes for the everyday man with unique additions, I don't know why his label was sold or that he even cared. Seems to me like Margiela was all about the clothes and not Margiela himself or design team or whatever, hence why no one knows what the guy looks like, it was never about him. But you guys know how I feel either way about the subject

On the music talk, this is what is hot in Cuba right now along with the fashion confused.gif

In terms of interesting fabrics, it's pretty hard to beat Ts(S). That is where it really excels. If you just see pictures of it, it's hard to imagine what is really so special about it, but the materials really distinguish it.

it actually reminds me a lot of folk, which gets no play here. i have a flannel from folk which is fantastic - nicer than a thom flannel I own, much nicer than a lot of band I've handled. similar to iron heart.
