Stitchy, shirts are a hard thing to recommend since I tend to pick shirts based on how they'd fit me unless I'm going for a crazy pattern. You're just looking for a white shirt? I'd say uniqlo, or maybe Geller (on sale) might be a good place to start if you want something more mid-range. Nothing worthwhile in the $100-$150 range unless you're looking used.post #117260 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:12ampost #117261 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:18ampost #117262 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:19ampost #117263 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:20ampost #117264 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:26am@in stitches dont get the ones with stiff collars. Kamakura's collars have those fused interlinings haven't they? Also yeah, try Uniqlo OCBDs, they are right in between the preppy small collar Gitman/Band of Outsiders and long ass MC OCBDs. Nice length IMO, just need to take in a bit of the waist.post #117265 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:33ampost #117266 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:39ampost #117267 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:40amQuote:
edit: sorry I just noticed you were looking for button downs.
I'm not so sure a BD collar shirt would be the best choice for that kgfan fit. The short collar, artisan viridi anne style goes better with the guidi boots and other stuff. I alwys think BDs are better with more 'trad' things or workwewar.post #117268 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:44am
can't go wrong with Wolf vs. Goat button downs. the overdye line is probably perfect for what you are looking for @in stitches .
Before Dinner style = slim/darted back
After Dinner = more relaxed fit but by no means baggy or loose.post #117269 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:47amQuote:Originally Posted by KingJulien

doesnt have to be straight white. the viridi anne gradient is a shirt i love for example.
i have been looking around at a bunch of brands. anne d, plokhov, LUC, viride anne, silent/damir... and i have noticed 2 things.
1. its really hard to find this ish in larger sizes, something to fit my 42/44 size chest. i think jp size 5-6 is what i need and im just not finding it.
2. unlike MC shirts, where i can pretty easily find shirts in the 400-500 dollar range for closer to 130-160, BNWT, no problem, this SWD stuff i just cant find on much discount, and it seems like the stock is just much more limited than MC.Quote:

kamkura has one of the the best collar rolls out there, but imo their shirts are 100% MC.
i will consider uniqlo but i am not thrilled about it.Quote:Originally Posted by Parker
if you want the full kgfan vibe, how about just going for the viridi-anne or other artisan-ish brand?
helps to have other stuff to complement that look, tho.
i love that ish. see above tho.
i do have some complimentary stuff now tho. picked up the MA boots and some DVN and KVA pants.Quote:Originally Posted by jmaudi0

i do like those. definite option there!post #117270 of 1176665/16/14 at 10:48amUniqlo/whatever is fine for a shirt, but I'm not sure that's what Stitches has in mind.
Stitchy, I want you to start buying random, weird shit on ebay and rakuten. Ann, plokhov, forme, damir, TVA, whatever. none of this OCBD garbage. Pants, too. think beyond jeans. Cast away your preconceived streetwear notions and give yourself up to the fashun.
