Have you tried the modern slim fit shirts? The arm holes are higher than the slim fits, that's the only difference I found.
Have not tried the modern slim fit shirts yet. Not sure if I will be buying any more of their shirts in the future, due to collar size.

CM has 3 shirt cuts, people should be able to find one that works. Modern slim in large is perfect for me.

Churchill, you are probably better off with something like Brooks Brothers if you want a larger collar. Most of the brands discussed in SWD will have the smaller collar, or a very exaggerated collar that is more than you want (raf).

Fair enough. For casual shirts the collar size doesn't really bother me much since I don't wear ties ever.

You are right. 90% of my sport/dress shirts are Brooks Brothers. I recently bought a Kamakura shirt and like that one a lot, except for its must iron characteristic.

I don't normally wear ties and still prefer the larger collar, different strokes for different folks.

I know CM is fashion forward and all but can somebody explain this?  http://www.clubmonaco.com/product/index.jsp?productId=23448956

I assume its just for lounging around in the house/cabin, looks really comfy/cozy in that context, would kop if my size made it to deep sale
post #1673 of 1952
yes would totally buy if it was more reasonable in price

Another question: should I size up for CM suit jacket in the Grant fit?

 

I normally wear 38S in J.Crew. My experience showed that CM suits are a tad slimmer than J.Crew, but is it worth it to size up to 40S?

Do you think that CM is fashion forward? I'd describe them as maybe contemporary classics.

It's also something to wear at home, so not sure if it could be considered "fashion" per se. I mean, you can wear any kind of shit at home.

^My wife says it resemble our one year old "onesie"
post #1678 of 1952
Yes, but a 100% cashmere onesie (sans booties), now ain't that fucking cozy? (just needs shitter flap imho)

With that price tag $479.00, it's more like something to wear between sex scenes if you're in the porno business!

I found this season's Grant fit is slimmer than years past. I could fit into a 40S from last season but found this year's 40S being too tight. Of course, YMMV.
