Uniqlo Airism V-Neck -- What's sizing like on these?

Looking for "fitted" fit for undershirt use -- 5'10" 175lb. and 41-42 in most suiting.

L or XL?

Been looking to buy a grey hoodie but don't really want to pay $140 for it and came up with these club monaco..

What do you think?  

Whats the difference between the two?  I know one is cotton and one is terry cloth but I was wondering which one would be better and why.

Try Uniqlo. Way better quality. They got a grey zip up thats pretty nice. And terry cloth is better.

thanks for the input. I live in Canada so we don't have uniqlo here.  I'm a student so I get 20% at monaco which was why I was considering.

Thoughts on the Carmina captoes (simpson last). Is it necessary to size down by .5 from AE park/5 ave (5-last)

http://www.theshoemart.com/carmina-mens_essex_brown/pv-cam-80286-002_cam_m_essex.html

are they worth it for $300?

jezec i never been a fan of super pointy toed shoes like that myself but that is my opinion. i'd rather go with something a bit more classic that i would know i wouldn't regret paying x amount of dollars x amount of years later. ie if you already have park and 5 ave you should be set in that department.

Thanks for your comments. I'm actually looking for something with a sleeker look than the PA/5th Ave. In terms of colors, I have them in black and brown, respectively, but the link I showed you appears to display a walnut-colored shoe, which is something I'm looking to add to my collection.

Can you speak specifically on the simpson last or the construction of the Carmina captoe? I guess the more important question is, is it worth the jump in terms of price point. PA/5th Ave can be had for about $240ish via annaul sales, but the Carmina is $300.

Check out Wolf vs Goat (there's a thread here). You'll pay a bit more (assuming tote discount + shipping to Ca, but no tax), but guaranteed the quality will be significantly better. There's currently two out right now, red and grey. There's another one in the works coming soon, pictures in the affiliate thread.

What are respectable brands for henley's. I think they're great for the winter and layer well but I have trouble finding quality/interesting ones. For example, I have a few from JCrew that are often hit or miss and I rather step the quality/craftsmanship if I buy more.

Thanks

Thinking about getting a Seiko 5 and a brown leather band -- I'm looking for a watch that I can wear around with jeans but will also work for interviews in a suit (I am a lawyer).

Thoughts?

Something like this:


Or this:


(But I'd probably use the brown strap from the white-faced pic above).


I have skinny wrists, so smaller faces and slimmer profiles are +s. If you think neither are good, do you have any other watch recommendations for <$400?

Got some navy Saucony's I like, but they don't go well with blue jeans. Not enough contrast I think. 

 

Looking at a pair of Onitsuka Tigers to fill this gap, and to also use with shorts next spring/summer. 

 

What does the SF think of these two options?
