Are there any selvedge denim that is made with stretch material like elastene? I ride bikes fairly often which stretches out the thighs and waist on my jeans.

LOL at the model buttoning the top two. Some of these stores don't even try to make their stuff look good.

It can be rather uncomfortable to wear a slim (well) fitted shirt under a thick sweater, feels.. constricting.
The worst thing for me is when I try to put something on while wearing my fitted shirts.

optional reading:
From easiest to hardest to layer for me:

Blazer: Sometimes, the shirt shoulder seams dislocate, and I almost always have to pull the cuffs out of the jacket sleeve because my sleeves are fitted.
Semi-thick or thick sweater: This is ever so aggravating. You need to raise your arms over your head to put it on, so that means your whole shirts becomes dislocated on your body
when you do put it on.
Light cardigan: Ok, THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF. I can only imagine style bloggers getting ready with a help of 3 other people for this to look good. Any of this, for that matter.
It's just impossible to take a slim fitted, light cardigan and layer it over a slim fitted shirt. The shirt's creases will be visible everywhere, it will get severely dislocated underneath and needless to say, when you wear a fitted shirt your movements aren't exactly liberated.
Is it possible that your clothing is too fitted?

The hollows belts look fantastic, but I seriously doubt I am going to buy another belt for 20 years, except maybe a dress belt to match some shoes. As far as quality goes, the corter is not as nicely finished as tanner, but its probably more durable and has a great rugged look to it. 
Thanks for responding. If you were to go back and do it again would you get Corters or Tanners first? Is the thickness a bigger pro than a more refined finish?

What's a nice, cheap ($100 or less), versatile belt that'll age nicely?

Mostly gonna wear them with some APC's i got to prevent waist stretching.




Also, dumb question, but how do you size a belt? I wear a 27 in APC PS, so my waist is around 28" or 29" (I think)?


edit: Actually, if it's that much better, I wouldn't mind spending more than $100.

I like this leather jacket from the Japanese Company "Freewheelers", but it is $2000+ bucks.

Is this is a good jacket? Is it worth the price? If not, are there similar choices? I don't know anything about leather jackets.

Anyone know how 3sixteen shirts fit? Their mediums look ok in the shoulders, 20.5" P2P might work, but I worry the middle (unmeasured) is going to fit like saran wrap. Slightly oversized might make a good EG altenative, so...I'm keeping hope alive.
post #13182 of 16312
if your midsection is wider i wouldn't get the 3sixteen shirt most of the up to date brands have the midsection slim/tapered or they would like to think its slim whats the drop on you like? ie your chest to hip/waist.

you probably need a specialized cut especially if engineered garments workshirts? is what you like i like them to but i wear different fits. i'm pretty slim i'm swimming in eg workshirts xs but i still love the fit.

Thanks. I'm a 39-40 chest,33 waist, size 32 pants, and the WvG After Dinner Medium or current W+H Mediums are an ideal fit for me.

Going by Epaulet, I prefer the first kind of fit:

Look at Corter, Tanner, Equus. Those can all be had under $100. Tanner might be very close to that. Belts are typically measured from the middle hole the to the buckle end of the belt without the buckle. Most say to get a size up from what you buy your pants in, but that will vary depending on how much true to size your pants are. Another thing to factor in is how close to your waist you are going to wear your pants. If you are going to wear below your waist you will probably need larger than your waist size, since they will be resting on your hips rather than your waist, assuming that your hips are wider than your waist.
