I don't think you can prevent that because it's due to the tightness/way the fabric is knit. When the fabric softens it shouldn't be as creased. If it ends up too short you could try stretching it out while damp so when it creases it won't ride up as much.

Hello! This is my first thread here, and I was hoping you could help me with an enquiry I have. A couple of days ago I received a shirt as a gift. I thought that maybe the sleeves were a bit too short, so I replaced it for one just one size bigger (41 to 42... pretty weird sizing system, at least for me... I had never seen it before).

 

Now I think this one may be a bit too big. The sleeves feel and look fine, but the shoulder seams look a bit off, a bit too wide and low, but maybe it's just me, or it's just not that much of a deal.

 

I know it's a casual shirt, and this sort of lumber shirts are usually big and baggy; that's the way they're supposed to be worn (I think so), but still, I'm not really sure.

 

Here are some pics of it:

 

 

 

 

Thanks!

Thanks!

unless you were going for an oversized look, the body is too big and too long in my opinion. sleeves look ok though. if the next size down has unwearably short sleeves in your opinion, the best bet may be to write off that shirt, and find one that fits your body type better.

Any ideas on brands / sources for a cape / poncho like this?

My girlfriend has announced she wants one and her birthday is coming up. My first thought was Pendelton, but they don't seem to have anything like that at the moment. Also might be tricky to get hold of in the UK.

All suggestions welcome, although her/my budget is probably not going to stretch to top end stuff.

Sup.  Formal "event" in a few hours, I don't have any clothes, I'm fucked.  Which one of these is less bad?  Both are half-borrowed lol

In case you can't tell colors - OCBD is light blue, knit tie (yes, it's too skinny but it's all I could borrow) is burgundy, first blazer is a light-ish royal blue/navy combination, second blazer is a cracked pepper tweed that looks grey-ish from afar but a combination of black/white from close up.  Cargo Trousers (lol) are dark charcoal and thankfully are made of wool/suiting-esque materiall, Boots are similar dark charcoal if a bit lighter.  Belt is brown.

 

Simple fixes/suggestions welcome (ex - White OCBD instead, or something),

 

I have a few hours left lol.  Severely limited right now by time/not being able to borrow stuff that fits/me outgrowing my own clothes lol.  Still looking for brown or oxblood shoes but probably not gonna find a pair in time.  It was pretty hard finding stuff that even fit me haha

 

inb4 lapels too skinny too many pockets yadadada 

 

ps: I think the navy blazer is slightly more flattering somehow but not really sure how this stuff works...both are H&M 40Rs lol

I think the second jacket goes better with the bottom, though I'd probably recommend the blue jacket if you could find some more "formal" pants and shoes

Thanks - shoes may be do-able (oxblood or dark brown) if I get lucky enough to borrow a pair in time, pants are probably a no-go :/.  Same advice?

if you can, drop by a thrift store or two and see if they have any pants pants or shoes that would work better

Cargo pants to a formal event?

What's the model of these jeans?

post #12027 of 15735


Anyone know what shoes the green pants guy in the photo is wearing? This picture is from a reddit thread, and all we've found out about them so far is that they're from Venice. Also interested in pants similar to either the green or red pants, if anyone can point me in the right direction. Thanks!

What's the deal with 3 button blazers (true 3 button, not 3/2)?

Or rather, in your opinon, what kind of an impressions does a 3 button make in comparison with a two button (or 3/2)? 

post #12029 of 15735
Epaulet, Unis and tons of other brands make chinos in those kinds of colors.

Popular look in the 1990s. The impression they give depends on your age: if you're old enough to have bought them new it says you're too cheap to buy new suits. If you're younger it says you're not thrifting right.
