In any case, I have not. I'm trying to rein in my purchases at the moment. But soon I'll have a new, bigger closet. And that can mean only one thing... nod[1].gif

What are everyone's preferred brands for OCBDs? I'm slowly replacing "mall brand" items from amongst my staples with better stuff as the older pieces wear out.

Hopefully around $100 or less?

Give Kamakura a shot.

Jfrat, that is well done. Small squabble, I think the flat white shirt is too city for the rustic country jacket and tie, Id go with an oxford cloth and I would prefer something blue, but its a real nice fit and a big step up. Well done.

Thanks! I considered a blue herringbone shirt but was concerned the blue would be a color too many - does that not really matter?

No, not in my book. A blue shirt is such a staple background that it could almost never be considered a color too many imo. I think it would be great as long as the blue is not too saturated.

Ah good to know. Here's the updated pic:

I think it looks much better with the blue

I think you're right jf nod[1].gif

Ok, so color-wise that is superb. Now we are starting to hit pay dirt.

I'll make 2 more small suggestions.

1. The herringbone pattern of the shirt is too close in scale with that of the jacket. A smaller herringbone would be better, but ideally Id probs not wear herringbone shirt and jacket together. This is a pretty fundamental point, and while the combo is real good, I would keep this in mind. Varying the scale across the board is something to always keep in mind.

2. The edge on the PS is almost the same color as the SC. I personally like a little matchiness in my PS, but more so with the tie or shirt, but right against the jacket it should not be the same color to the point they blend into each other. Considering this is just the edge of the PS, Id say while I think its a fair point, compared to the above its rather minute, and I bet some people dont mind it at all.

Great work, man!

Also, I took the liberty of fixing your pic by enlarging it so you can see what I mean, and because it looks so much better in large, and you deserve credit for that combo. Hope you are ok with that.

I like how jfrater improves pretty much instantaneously based on feedback. :slayer:

Both work for me. I disagree with Stitchy about the hank's edge. As those go, it's not bad.

Also, the light is much better in the second picture, which sort of a thumb on the scale. smile.gif
