(j @ 09 June 2004, 12:28) Artdeco: it sounds like you could benefit from some custom shirts as well. (Bjorn, I think he was saying that if shirts are short enough to wear untucked, they are also tight, and if they are loose enough to wear, they are also long.)
Thank you, j. Â That is exactly what I was trying to say. Â And I am not talking about dress shirts in the conventional sense, i.e. with exact neck and sleeve measurements. Â I don't like the way those look with jeans regardless of fit -- they look mismatched IMHO. Â I am talking about casual, or "sport" shirts (not sure of terminology outside the US) usually (although not always) in softer, heaveir fabrics that come in averaged sizes of Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large, etc. Â Perhaps I should be looking at different manufacureres/brands? Â Most of my casual clothing comes from Eddie Bauer, Gap, occasionally Banana Republic.
See, this I am not quite understanding, that they are seen as mismatched. Personally, I love to wear dress shirts with jeans, and "accessorize" more or less, with sweatshirts, colored shirts underneath, or loose ties. It could be related to my age, but I think nice quality dark wash jeans like Papers can look very sharp with dress shirts.
