I'm not trying to say this in a mean way, but you will probably get better responses if you start to post on the Men's Clothing (MC) side of the forum. They tend to discuss stuff like this (and trouser breaks) more commonly than in Street Wear & Denim.

I happen to wear dress shirts to work and since I can afford it I have my shirts washed after each wear. I take them to the cleaners who will launder and press them for me. To iron a shirt takes at least 15 minutes and I don't have 1.25 hours every week to spend ironing my shirts.

1. Are all Uniqlo shirts slim-fitting? I'm a skinny guy and can't find OCBDs (or sport shirts in general) anywhere.

2. How's the quality of Danier products? I want a messenger bag and I'm eyeing this one, but can't find any info online: http://www.danier.com/leather-accessories-men-casual-bags-254010016-P3773.aspx?lang=en

I got a Levis trucker in grey rigid, have a few questions about the denim, hoping someone has some experience with levis rigid denim of some sort. There is a tag on it that says it may shrink in the wash, how much shrinkage should I expect?  Will it stretch out much from normal wear?  I think it fits pretty well, could handle slight shrinkage but I'm afraid I'll wash it and it won't fit me anymore.  How much does it actually shrink?

Hi all,



Does anyone know here can I get this exact pair of Armani Jeans?

I have found them at Wood House Clothing and ZeeandCo but those stores don't actually "fit" me.

I also wear dress shirts every day to work and make more money than Biggskip and think dry cleaning dress shirts after every wear is excessive by pretty much anyone's standard.

I wear predominately BB non-iron dress shirts and I've gotten compliments on the crispness of them having not iron or had them cleaned in weeks. They're really stellar. Even if you go the non-non-iron route, I always opted to wear once, iron once and then have dry cleaned if they were excessively wrinkled after that. Even if you have them laundered after ever second wear, you're cutting your dry cleaning bill in half, and money is money.

I heard that the Alpha Dockers line failed miserably, and that they're usually on sale. I haven't had any luck finding super cheap pairs on Google though. Does anyone know where I might find some cheap pairs?

FWIW, the guy did not mention having them dry-cleaned, but washed and pressed.

"Flimsy" would be a nice way to put it.
