The main ingredient in anti-perspirants is aluminum which is a carcinogen. Some people feel using it can cause cancer in the long run. Others say it just sits on the skin and isn't absorbed. Either way it was never done in a long term study so neither side has been proven.

Would wear.

The people that I always think look coolest are the ones who put stuff together in a way you wouldn't expect and still works. And in my experience, they're mixing stuff from all over the place, not just stuff from one "aesthetic" or whatever, and not just high-end pieces either.

I don't really have a problem with sweating, and even though anti-perspirant hasn't been definitively linked to anything, the idea of using a product that keeps me from sweating feels unnecessary and even weirds me out a little.

Being into different styles is a good thing (assuming it's not just hype), it gives you different point of views, different ways of approaching the brands you like, outside of their usual setting. Take advantage of this, find a common thread between Rick and Schneider (or... or...), a backbone for what you want to do, something that allows you to integrate a wide variety of items without compromising the whole thing by making you look like a circus freak. As long as you're not trying to work repp ties into Rick outfits it's more than likely doable, brands don't need to overlap to be compatible (and most are). Imagine a coherent continuum between extreme dropcrotch and boring minimal tailoring, then own that continuum, live in it. The reward is in the process (too).

First of all, I absolutely agree with you.

I recently put together a grungy version of what might be a "Rick" out fit for someone using some very classic menswear/#menswear pieces. There was a grey Brunello Cucinelli down vest involved, um, some Drkshdw carrot leg jeans, some painted over Buttero hightops (actually, that was a really cool DIY project), a Dries van Noten skinny belt from last season, and a few tees layered - taupe longsleeve over a maroon thermal that was another DIY project - I think that it was a Buzz Rickson thermal, but it might have been Studio D'Artisan or something similar. An old but very classic menswear grey flannel shirt from Luciano Barbera was washed, wringed out and let dry thtat way, and tied at the waist. Sort of all in the melding of colors, textures, and proportions. I could have used most of the same pieces to do a sort of "generically handsome man" look, incidentally.

Also, I belt that a repp tie could be used in a Rick outfit. I could see it being overdyed and made into an double-O ring belt, for example

tried one of the CKC hidden placket shirts from yoox, ordered an XL.

i can't imagine who fits these shirts well. big in the neck and waist, but tight in the chest and arms, with big shoulders. what?

Mine doesn't fit like that at all (it's a L)... tiny bit tight in the neck, spot on in the chest, arms and shoulders, and could maybe come in a tiny bit in the waist but still tighter than, say Uniqlo slim fit - sounds like maybe you got a factory reject or something?  I think we're generally the same chest size too.

I think I'm a size bigger than you - I'm a 41 chest with a big back. I think the XL is a 17" neck. I think L would work well everywhere but biceps, where it'd be skin tight.

it's not a mystery. people are just shaped differently, even if they're technically the same size. that's why I generally don't bother asking for sizing advice on stuff.

The sizing probably fits the typical size 42-43, who has probably a narrower back, and has significantly more of a gut. If you are a size 38 or 40, and pretty average shape (um, me), stuff generally fits you. If you are a larger size, but not fat, your options can be considerably more limited.

Why not just buy a few good fragrances then?
