They have a lot of nice minimal pieces at a midrange pricepoint. Stuff runs relatively slim. Also, they don't ship to the US so I used member rirawin to proxy (fo free!)

excellent. thanks for the info, i will look into it and potential proxies.

Because its a t shirt, and for what you're looking for nicer brands won't work

lol @ you. i have seen so much tee shirt critiquing here to know that there is a big difference between one that looks good and one that doesnt. i was looking for some helpful advise for my needs, and thankfully, i got some.

Thanks! it's pretty nice. Not inverallan thick, but so much less scratchy. Very, very comfy over a T. I would happily try an XXL at some point, too - I guess this must be the infamous 'new version,' which is not as long as I thought it would be, but I'd say it's a good looking cardigan and it's an excellent piece to own.

Thanks again for the turtleneck suggestions. I picked up one from Uniqlo while I was in NYC this weekend. For a reason unknown to me, the San Francisco Uniqlo locations aren't stocking any. I also picked up an additional couple of sweaters which might pass SWD muster. I'll try to wear and post pics this weekend.

the suggestions you got were bad. you should not buy a rick owens t-shirt or ones from COS - what makes those tshirts good is the opposite of what you're looking for - they're sheerish, and they're frequently made of blends so while they drape well, they're often see through. rick owens tshirts are also $500, and why pay $100 to proxy a tshirt? if you want a cheap serviceable decent fitting tshirt look at club monaco or jcrew. you're a pretty regular shaped guy, so most random mall brands will work fine. if you want to spend more money look at LVC, RRL, wings + horns or japanese denim brand (ironheart, loopwheeler). the thing is. though, if your purpose is to wear it under a knit, it doesn't matter what it really looks like, so why spend $100 when $10 will work.

what irritated me about your post is that it reveals one of the most frustrating parts of SW&D - people coming in here and saying 'dress me!'. try some stuff out. experiment. that's what makes streetwear fun - it's much less paint by numbers than CM.
post #104560 of 117670
I assumed rick Owens suggestion was a joke. Experimenting is great but when you dont have access in person to brands it can be expensive and frustrating. Maybe you have the patience for it, but I really don't.

With that said, try a WvG tee stitches. lightweight with good drape, long (you may even need to hem), normal neckline. I can't guarantee how it will look on your body, but they're pretty nice. Only $25 with loyalty discount.

in stitches drives to new york like one a month, and lives 45 minutes from DC. I don't know if I'd call his access 'limited'.
post #104563 of 117670
Sorry, I haven't been stalking him. I was speaking from my own perspective, which is limited access. Regardless, there's nothing wrong with asking for suggestions. You evaluate the advice given and make your own decision.
