Asos doesn't exactly have the greatest quality, but they have a wide variety of turtlenecks in various colors and textures in the $30-$60 range depending on what fabric you want. Don't know how many are still in stock though.

Brooks Brothers is a good, classic option. I own a v-neck sweater from them and i like it quite a lot. They seem to be priced in the $40-$60 range.

Looking for basic tech-y shorts in white, navy, and black.  Don't have to all be the same.  Zipper pockets are cool.  Nylon/wool/tech material.   Anyone have any leads?

Check Ervell, he did a pair this season, nylon, called something like an athletic short. Might still be available marked down on his website

Jeans alteration question.

 

I have big thighs and big butt from working out and need to up size if I want to stay with slim fit. What's the maximum waist gap a tailor can take in before the back pockets will go wonky? I've heard it's 1 1/2" max. So 2 size up is too much? Any idea?

 

Thanks.

Hi sff

Doing the center back seam, 1 1/2" is about right.
But if the price is not a consideration this can be done.
the entire waistband is removed. Then the waist is taken in a number places
around the front and sides and back. the band is shortened and replaced.
It takes a good deal of time and that is what alterations are charged for.
Talk to your tailor about this.

idk what the style of fabric or weave this is called (see below) but i am looking for a slim fit dress shirt that is made like the below in 100% cotton, i can't seem to find something like this in black.





i felt this in person and it was nice but this company doesn't make a slim fit in black baldy%5B1%5D.gif

looks like a heavy twill-weave fabric. RL sells something like this afaik, or you can have it made through luxuire

Hi S in S

If the collar and shoulders fit fine, then take it to a tailor.
Have him taper the sides to fit you.

I try to have the shoulder seam end where my shoulders end.

Hi CW

Go to a fabric store and buy a tape measure. About 2 or 3 bucks.
Measure the shirts before you try them on, it saves time.

Usually carry a tape measure on me and have spare at work and at home. I think it's easier just to try the shirt on and figure where it doesn't fit from there rather than taking measurements.

Are you saying take the waist in from the center back seam is the easiest and cheapest way to go or just as expensive?
