Are any stores still stocking the basic Thom Browne white OCBD right now? Or are they all sold out? Looking for a TB1

Call Barneys, then should be able to find one for you. The canadian seller on eBay may have some as well.

I heard some people say on the forums that the canadian dude is selling fakes, that's why no one buys his shirts

Yeah, I'd stay away from that guy... He always has the same stuff in stock, new, basic colors, multiple sizes, etc. Pretty sure its not real


Anyway-

Couple repair-related questions

-Unfortunately my SS scarf has a rip/snag (about 3in long) that needs to be repaired. Would a tailor be able to mend it? Other idea(s)?

-Bottom toggle from my coat fell off in the snow, couldn't find it, so now I need to replace it (its the bottom toggle) and of course it didn't come with an extra.
Trying to decide if I should either - find one that looks as simlar as possible to the rest, or... since it's going to be impossible to find one that's identical, get one that contrasts. Thoughts?

New Rick Owens leather in size medium is a little big/long in arms, but the size small I can't even zip up. Is it possible to take it to a tailor or too risky? What should I do?

Thanks for the heads up, makes sense I guess. Park and Bond had Thom Browne for super cheap once you factor in the Amex deal but almost all sizes are gone.

What's the quality on Gant Rugger suits/jackets? Are the worth the price? From what I can tell they look like they are made in South America.

1.  I ran a search regarding the topic I'm asking about.  Didn't want to bump old threads, but wasn't sure if I'd get yelled at for making a new thread so I'm posting in here first.  If my topic warrants a new thread, let me know.

2.  Based on what I read in the old threads I wasn't sure if my question fell under street or mens, so I'm posting both.  Let me know where it should be and I'll just post there.

 

 

 

So me and my cousin are turning 21 on Dec 15th, so us and bunch of family and friends will be heading to Vegas for that weekend.  Even though I'm from SoCal, I don't really hit up clubs, so this will be my first time.  I kind of had a outfit in mind but now I'm having second thoughts, so who better to ask for an opinion than the members of this forum.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

For the top, I was looking to wear an outfit like this:


http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/3920/27450115.jpg  (OK I've asked many times but no one answers me.  How come I'm not able to post pictures?  I'm using the [img][/img] in the front and back and it's not working.)

 

 

1.  Is wearing a blazer too much?

2.  Would black on black work?

3.  Does my dress shirt have to be tucked in?

4.  If I go with just a dress shirt, should I leave the sleeves down or can I roll them up?

5.  Thoughts on a vest?

6.  Thoughts on a tie?

 


Or for a less fancier outfit, just a black wool sweater over a white dress shirt (untucked), maybe with a tie, paired with either dress pants/black slacks or black waxed jeans like this:



 
 

 


If I end up wearing a blazer, then I will get black dress pants.  If not, would a pair of unfaded waxed black jeans be fine with an untucked dress shirt?  Kind of like this: 

 

 
 
And would rolling up the cuff to show a bit of ankle (like in the picture) be a bad move with black wax jeans + dress shirt?  What about with dress pants + blazer?
 
 
 
And finally the shoes.  I was thinking about ordering the black shoes in the picture above since I have the grey ones and I love them.  Here's a closer look:

Yes, the wrinkles are part of the style but in some pictures it looks really smooth.  If they really come that wrinkly I don't know if that'll be the best pair of shoes to wear.  Or I can go bold with these:

So yea that's a little of what I had in mind.  I don't want to look too overdressed but I don't want to look like I didn't put any thought into my outfit.  I'm only 5'7, really skinny and look really young if that matters.  I admit I'd look at a kid strange if they walked around dressed super nice.  Just doesn't look right.
 
 
I won't have a lot of time to shop so I'll be heading to a mall and probably getting my clothes from H&M or ZARA's.  Yea, I know, way below forum standards but I'm not trying to spend too much money on an outfit I'm only going to wear once in a while.
 
 
TIA.


 

 

I can't view those photos, but if you save a photo on your computer you can post it from your hard drive without a problem.

 

I have one comment:  Don't untuck your shirt.  It makes you look behind the times, because untucked shirts are behind the times.  Go with slim clothing and tuck in the shirt-that's how it's done these days. 

 

Read GQ much?  Watch many runway shows?  If not, get started-it'll help you figure out what looks good and what is trendy.

This also happens when I cross my arms although in less effect. Also, for this shirt I went a size down because I really like how the shirt wears in normal posture. Should I choose comfort or should I go with tighter fit than what I usual wear and avoid leaning down or crossing my arms or stretching both of my arms?



 

It could stand to have more room in the chest area. The problem is that off-the-rack shirts won't ever fit you perfectly, so in order to get the majority of dimensions correct you have to live with a few areas that don't fit well. If you return the shirt and get a size larger, it will feel better in the chest/back area (like it should), but the sleeves, waist, and arm-holes won't look as sharp. The choice-between comfort and style-is up to you.

You could also get a size larger and get a tailor to slim the sleeves and waist-if you're that serious about it.
