I agree. A decent quality (no mall brands) thin striped shirt under a blazer would look great. (on anyone).
Okay, so a Thomas Pink shirt, with a blazer. Black Blazer I'm assuming? I have a Charcoal blazer from Buckel, but you guys probably hate that.
I'd look into a good quality tailored blazer. If you dropped, say, $600 including tailoring to shorten sleeves etc., you'd have something you'll have for a long time and can wear in any situation. Since you probably don't have easy access to lots of good stores, I'd go for Brooks Brothers' Web site.
This is available in up to a 48 (you may be bigger), but is an example of something that might work for you. :http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=§ionsize=
Pair that with a pair of medium-wash jeans (no gimmicks, please)
Def going to look into a tailor. The searching for crap, but crap I don't like, then never wearing it is for the birds.
I'll check out BB
Medium Wash is better than light wash? I always liked the light wash because my upper body is bigger than my lower, and the darker the jean the more out of proportion my body looks. Know what I mean?
Yeah man, that's what I was thinking about the black. Kind of obvious i'm trying to look more slim. The shirt you have here is a light blue, shouldn't I go darker?
polo makes sizes up to 42 i think. they definitely also have a b&t line.
if you're going on a date i would recommend really thinking about how much this girl is worth to you. if you want to make a good first impression don't spare any expense.
I'm with you there, man. I'm down to drop some coin - tired of being disappointed in my attire. She's worth it, too
To the OP, Cotton Works and Modern Tailor are both made-to-measure shirt makers, and both are forum affiliates. You can link to their web sites from the Men's Clothing sub-forum. Neither is particularly expensive, and they have a variety of colors and patters (just maybe stay away from big patterns and bright colors).
Shepler's has Levi's 501s going up to a 42 waist (http://www.sheplers.com/levis-jeans-...k-to-fit.html)
. Dark denim will probably be more flattering than the light-wash jeans you posted.
That's what I'm talking about! Cotton Works and Modern Tailor will most def be checked out.
And aren't 501's slim fitting nut huggers? I wear a 40 waist, so the size will be fine as long as it's not some Vintage fit/Slim fit garbage the designers make for you skinny guys, while trying to sound appealing to the customer when they just wanna save cash on material by using less. (Okay, maybe i'm ranting now haha).
since this hasnt been answered yet...yea, no matter the size, a tailor is ALWAYS an option. No body is made the same, yet OTR shirts/pants are. A tailor fixes this. Definitely worth the money.
Welcome here...your sense of humor will help hahahaha
Thanks for the answer, finally. Just wasn't sure if Tailors did the casual stuff, too.
If a tailor made me look sharp, thinner, more comfortable, and trendy/fashionable, whilst making me feel confident, well that my friends is worth it's weight in gold!
