For your complexion I would also try grey (mid to dark grey, charcoal, etc), brown (darker to chocolate) and green (hunter, army, olive), and for jeans with muscular quadriceps maybe size up on a slim strait cut.

thanks, will try those

They run large. I'm a 43/10 and sized down to a 42/9 and it is still maybe half a size big.

I'm looking for feedback please. Anyone who has noticed my presence in the WAYWT thread will know i've been told a million times to tailor my shirts. So I recently set out to do this for 2 of my cheaper shirts initially which I intend on wearing un-tucked. Background for those that are not familiar. I generally buy L size shirts to accommodate my chest/shoulders but would ideally wear an M for length in both shirt body and sleeves. Other than J.Crew/Gitman where I can wear an M, all others don't allow me to move my arms comfortably. I'm about 5'8/9 and 80KG/175lbs.
 
This first shot is what I wore today as a comparison showing a shirt which has not been tailored. Same black Acne denim/Grenson shoes in all shots.

This shirt is from Industrie and I had the sleeves and shirt shortened. No darts. Shirt cuff was taken as far as it could to allow the upper wrist button to be done up. This is a semi-fitted / slim shirt to begin with so I am happy with this. Looks very BOO in shape.

This shirt is from APC and I had the sleeves and shirt shortened. WITH darts. Shirt cuff was fine so no issues there. Sleeves feel great. The issue is however that the shirt is a regular fit and therefore IMO looks a little silly shortened. Perhaps it can be salvaged by darting a little more aggressively or actually slimming the shirt down the sides. I should have bought an M and shortened the shirt a little less than this was done.

Overall I am not really happy with the results. I think the tailor I went to is fine to do cuffs of pants, but struggles with the shapes of shirt bottoms. A more experienced tailor would probably have realised that the base of the shirts will 'float' and flop about without being tapered a little at the base sides. 
 
The white Industrie is fine IMO, but the APC will need this I think to be saved. It can also be easily tucked still (I checked). 
 
I'm wondering if I should be taking my 'untucked' shirts up quite this much? Thoughts?

Appreciate that so many have said to shorten my shirts, but it looks like I'd need then to be quite slim to do this.

Anything that is boxy/billowy or fuller in the chest/body needs a little more length to balance out. Not sure.

You look so... square. 

post #11420 of 16170

Tell me about it. lol

 

I think I just need to slim down a little and try get my ass into M shirts. Also, it's honestly a case of finding what suits / fits best. I can't expect everything I buy online to fit right off the bat. Gitman, Kitsune and a few others fit me quite well 'out of the box'. Other than in the sleeves which are easily fixed. Playing with the shirt length, taper and so on is troublesome. Lesson learned on these two. 2 tucking shirts now lol. Can probably get away with the white OCBD as an untucked shirt with a little darting but the APC is gone I think.

 

Now to find someone who has a little more experience with shortening shirts. I still have quite a few i'd like to get done - though not quite as short. Need the length it seems to stop me looking so square. However they still need to be short enough to not look too long/touch down to my crotch.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before but ... Why not just tuck your shirt in? Problem solved, proportions sorted and, boom, you look like a grown-up! Also, you'll save on tailoring.

Besides White and Light Blue, what other colors are advised in a Oxford long sleeve shirt,

- to be worn casually in the evenings and weekends with Stone/gray/navy/khaki Chinos and medium & dark blue Denim Jeans, all with dark brown desert boots or boat shoes

 

besides white and light blue oxford shirts, what other colors arethere that are versatile and suitble for casual activites - e.g. bars/pubs, restaurants, cinema, shops, out with girlfriend or friends, etc 

- for a 27 y/o

 

thank you

I've got shirts which I tuck, and some I'd like to wear untucked.

Just quick question, how do Levis Vintage Clothing shirts, sweater and jacket fit? I wear Medium in most brand. And how are their quality compare to brands in the same price point like APC or Rag and Bone? Sorry, I did a search before asking this question but the answers I coud find were all about denims instead.

Quick question about Belstaff jackets: I'm 5"6' and 135 lbs with a 34" chest. Would a woman's Trailmaster look okay on a guy or is it cut in a particularly feminine way? From pics online, it looks like it's cut the same as the men's version. Thanks for your time!

backtaro, 

 

UnionMade Goods has a lot of measurements for various LVC products. Maybe you could glean the sizing from that? Hope this helps. 

post #11428 of 16170

Fits can vary. Look up items on sites like unionmade which have precise measurements.

Fair enough.

I'm on the hunt for a blazer! I know very litle about the terminology, nor materials (shog[1].gif) so I'll provide you with pictures 

 

This is what I'm looking for:

I know the second one is from Isaia, but I'm hoping to find a similar one in that specific colour for ~400usd/300gbp

 

Perhaps a nice fellow could help me out on this one!
Thanks in advice
