Would this work w/ jacket and tie, or strictly cas? Was initially thinking of pairing w/ denim, but wondering about other possibilities.

wait...when do i become not Asian?

I mean, you don't go up to an African American person and call them Africans, do you?

Gosh darn it, I have been in the States for about 25 years but I am still asked where I am from. 

"Freaking U.S.A.?!"

No, where are you really from?

"U.S.A."

 

PS

I am not venting @Conrad but I am just saying. :lol:

I like patterns that clear, solid, and simple. 


Really? From the distance, they look solid, up close they resolve into a subtle pattern...really nice and subtle IMO. Micro checks are nice or small scale gingham (with larger scale, there's always the chance you'll look like a picnic table...).

Depends on the weave, but it looks like it may be casual. Pocket puts it over the edge, at least as far as how it was intended to be worn. I could imagine it working in a chinos, unstructured blazer, knit tie context though.

I don't dislike pockets on button downs. I don't own any, but I don't mind them. Wouldn't wear it with a suit or even most odd jackets though.

 

My dad has always worn them. Easy place to put his pens.

My impression is that most RTW dress shirts come with a pocket.
post #3072 of 37396
I don't know about most, but certainly the BDCs that I can find do.
post #3073 of 37396
I don't think I've ever ordered a custom shirt with a pocket though. In fact, I'm sure I haven't.

Really? The only dress shirts I bought in the US were from Banana Republic or Brooks Brothers in college. Guess I sort of thought that was just a BR/BB thing. Guess I thought wrong.

But that explains your response (I had no idea where you were coming from).
