I like my GATs better.

Quick sizing question: anyone familiar with Filippa K trouser fit? Trying to decide between a 48 and 50 here: http://www.menlook.co.uk/men-trousers/28413-navy-christian-trousers-filippa-k.html

If it helps, I'm generally a 32w. Like in Acne (Guy) and LAD slim chinos, most suit pants and Outlier. (And the usual 32w denim exceptions: 31 in Petit Standards, 33 in 511s/R&B/Uniqlo.) I am not "skinny"--I bike too often to call these trunks anything but "slim."

This is too broad of a question  I'm sure you could put together a look with jeans and penny loafers that would be "Style Forum Approved", but it depends on the specific jeans/shirt/jacket, and anything else you're wearing. 

 

The thing to do is post a full-body picture of yourself wearing those shoes with an outfit, and ask "should I wear different shoes?"

Honestly...they look orthopedic to me. Skip unless wearing with your walker.

Also, to the dudes questioning whether the 10.5" rise on the NS is too low to tuck...I pretty much never tuck my NS and when I do, I find it pretty uncomfortable. Even after stretching, sizing advice around here doesn't really lend itself to ticked in button downs--might wanna size up if that's your plan.

For reference, a couple pictures of my NS and Somet 003s--pictures aren't the greatest, but whatevs. I consider the following a pretty reasonable straight fit, though it'd be uncomfortable to tuck into these, YMMV:
NS
585
585

003s
585
585

100% no. You do not size up so that you can tuck your shirt in. You find a different pair of jeans with a higher rise.

Linen allows sweat to evaporate easily, and doesn't retain body heat as much as most other fabrics do.  Opt for looser garments, to allow for air flow.

 

Oh, and get some good deoderant.  You'll need it.


Thanks alot!!! I will definately get my Linen on lol

What? The difficulty with tucking in isn't about the rise, it's about the fit in the top block. You can't get a snug fit in the top block both with and without a tucked in shirt.

i don't know what top block means but i think i get the point: if the waist band fits snugly, it doesn't matter so much whether it's at your belly button on 2" below. that's true to a point but i have short legs/long torso to begin with, so low-rise tucked in would not be a good look for me, IMO, even with a waist band that fit.

or am i out to lunch.

Top block is basically the part above where the legs join to the top if that makes sense. I didn't realize he was talking about how he sized down too much on his own personal jeans. Makes sense now. But yes, low rise and tucking really doesn't mix well.

What are high arm holes all about in a long sleeve shirt? Who sell good examples? CHEERS!!
post #9492 of 15795

I have a couple of shirts that look like the front is being pulled open even though it fits me fine.

Should I just iron them before I wear them each time or can this be fixed?

I also have a shirt that has a couple of buttons that I assume have loose buttonholes because they come undone sometimes for no reason.

Is it possible to get the buttons replaced? Is it worth it even?

Top block is just the region from the crotch up. Waist/rise/etc. varies by cut, so I'm not sure I could even make your statement universally. I can say that a pair of fitted raw denim (the kind where you can barely button them up initially and end up giving you a great fit, and the kind SW&D typically rave about) aren't likely going to be conducive to tucking a button down into for Fridays at work or hunting for sophisticated chicas at the bar on Saturday night. Get something roomier if that's your aim.

Well, no, like I said, the fit is great by itself...just doesn't work with an extra layer of fabric stuffed down into my pants.

A tailor could probably make the button holes smaller to keep the buttons from slipping out. Shouldn't be too expensive.

I realise this is probably a bit late now but I was wondering if anybody knew of anywhere that stocks this Junya shirt?

468

Seen it in Dover Street Market a few months ago and they didn't have my size and the only online stockists I've been able to find were Tres Bien and Hervia and both of them have been sold out for a while. Will probably be tough considering we're coming up to sale season now but if anyone has seen it anywhere, I'd be greatful if you could let me know. I'm looking for a large.

Cheers.
