 Everybody pays taxes in one way or another.

Is that Tyrwhitt shirt a recent adquisition? The collars on mine don't look as good, and also the cuffs are way too large, while yours seem perfect!

Yes, both shirt and tie spots are pink - the shirt is a very pale shade of pink with a small pink graph pattern, and the spots are a bit more vivid pink.

The shirt is a Tyrwhitt Black Label, and was bought online, on sale, a couple of years ago, and the collar shape is subtly different than other Tyrwhitt shirts that I own. The cuffs are large (as in wide), but that does not bother me terribly much.

Even with raw, if the trouser leg doesn't make a straight line down your leg, they are too tight. With raw, you just need, to get them as tight as you can, without loosing that line. Some people will disagree with me on this one, but it's a rule, that I try and follow.

I'll agree with the discussion about trousers that are too tight but you've got to atleast acknowledge that denim and tailored trousers are separate animals. You're picking an odd example with those APC jeans, especially when the APC New Cure was designed to be tight.

Say what now? What I said doesn't apply to denim, especially slim-fit denim.

Collar on the shirt looks good, Señor Crust.

Thanks for the info. I just had a look at their Black Label shirts and they look good, there are even a couple pin collars... too bad they only come in tailored fit, and I believe a 15 (which is my collar size) will be a little on the tight side...

The collars run true to size, such that the collar on this shirt is actually a bit loose, as I went up a size in order that the body of the shirt would fit me. (Ironically enough, I lost several pounds subsequent to that, such that I might be able to fit into my proper collar size.)

Were you to try Black Label, I would advise that you speak to a human before placing your order - Tyrwhitt's staff should be able to give you a waist size for their tailored fits.

I have a 15.5 non-iron slim fit and the collar measures 17 inches... I believe they do this to account for shrinkage, but one inch and half seems excessive. In fact I have a couple size 15 poplin slim fits and the collar is 15.5 inches, and I also have some old size 16s (weight loss, hehe) that measure 16.5 inches; so I'm suspecting the non-iron is somehow mis-labeled...

 

Also, about your cuffs being a little wide, yeah, I just noticed in your first picture (they looked fine in the close-up). I don't know why they make them like that...

 

There's a size chart on the site, but I'm not sure how true the actual measurements are.

Crusty, if I am every in NYC for any reason, I want to schedule time for you to take me on a tour of the met.

I hope you have about 5 years set aside...

This is why I'd like Crusty to be my guide. He seems to really love art and the met, and rather than wandering aimlessly missing potentially cool things, the whole experience could be put into a specific perspective.

mktitsworth, it would be my honor to give you a tour of the Met, were you ever to make your way to NYC, and yes, the Met is a huge buffet of art - one would not expect to eat something from every plate at an all-you-can-eat buffet - and one cannot digest, visually, the entirety of the Met Museum in one sitting. I would design a visual "meal" that would leave you satisfied, but not bloated.

Well, here goes. A couple of quick snaps waiting for court to start. No I didn't fix my cuffs.

The shirt is a bridge too far, Thomas.

I don't mind the shirt and actually like the outfit although a solid shirt would probably have been better. I do like the suit on him. Surprised he is so skinny, I guess daily fapping does keep the weight off confused.gif
