a few questions please:

 

1) are they suitable for a 27 year old man?

 

2) On what occasions are they most suitable / practical?

 

I would want to wear them for  casual day time and evening casual wear, going to the pub, restaurant,  shops, cinema, out with friends - are they suitable?

 

3) What bottoms and footwear and colours are best suited with these casual shirts?

 

4) Can these shirts shown above be worn all year round, or are they only suitable in the summer?

 

- im in the UK by the way

 

thank you

 

If I may presume to offer advice...

 

Age really isn't important; context is.

Those three shirts you posted should definitely be considered casual-wear.  Don't try to "dress them up."
Try wearing them with medium or light wash jeans (preferably jeans which you have distressed and washed yourself), and rough leather chukka boots or converse sneakers or some other footwear similarly casual and simple.
Only wear flannel (the thick, rough fabric) in the winter.

Does anyone know anything about the brand COMING SOON - re: quality etc.? I have seen a few things which looked pretty dubious but their unstructured jackets look okay. As you might imagine, with little further information it is rather pointless searching for the brand name online... Are they worth investigating or should they be avoided?

thank you for your reply,

these are 100% cotton shirts, would you class that as thick?

 

are creme chimos/cargo okay to wear with them, with dark brown boat shoes?

just for day time casual wear

He does also take "thumbs up, selfportrait, mirror pictures". All he wears is crewnecks.

 

Do all "hipsters" wear high-end fashion clothes?

 

No.  Usually thrifted clothes.  It's a stupid meaningless term anyway.

hi guys,

 

I recently purchased these off ssense:

 

http://www.ssense.com/men/product/raf_simons/low_top_white_velcro_sneakers/46942

 

I ordered them in size 44. I usually wear a 10.5ish in US sizes. Do you think these will fit OK? I would have ordered 43  but these were the last pair.

 

I have a paid of chucks that say EU size 44 and US size 10 and they fit alright..

 

Thanks

I think that's one of Yohji Yamamoto's sub lines. If it is, well, go for it if you look the aesthetic.

Thanks, it seems you are right. That makes it definitely worth a shot.

any method when laundering tees to avoid the shoulder point creases caused by hangers?

i fold up my tees nowadays to avoid that post-wash as I may not go weeks wearing the same tee. eventually it will develop shoulder dimples for a prolonged time on a hander.

alternatively i can just pick up some more hangers from ikea that have a nicer width for hanging the likes of jackets

User the dryer or lay them flat. You could try getting a wooden jacket hanger with thick rounded ends, but that seems like huge overkill for a t-shirt. I personally dry all my t-shirts because... they're just t-shirts.

I hang dry first, always, to save on the electricity bill teacha.gif

And I like the warm sun with the breeze to give my clothes that extra bit of freshness.

Buy a drying rack I guess?

Any one can comment regarding Muji Oxford and shirts? Comparing them to Uniqlo. Also what about their pants, I saw some really nice thick slim fit pants. Cheers

Just because they're 100% cotton doesn't mean they're too thick to wear any time but the winter. Flannel should be left to the colder months, but flannel is a special type of thick, loosely-spun, fuzzy, soft fabric, often wool or cotton. Kilts and pajamas are often flannel, if that helps.

There's nothing inherently wrong with wearing those shirts with chinos or cargos, but you're getting into nerd/dad territory with those choices. It's as much about the individual pieces as it is about the whole outfit, so if you have cheap ill-fitting chinos and cargos the outfit isn't going to be good.

And boat shoes are a summer thing.

I really like the SeaVees 05/65 Tennis Shoe in Navy (http://www.zappos.com/seavees-05-65-tennis-shoe-navy) but they don't have my size and apparently this is last season's model so they won't have a fresh supply. Do you guys have any recommendations for a similar shoe? I like the vintage look and the tip is not plain like the other Converse canvas shoes.

Can anyone recommend a pair of jeans cut similarly to APC New Standards, but with less room in the seat?
