- An erect stature;

- Square shoulders (similar to erect stature); or 

- A short back balance.

 

Generally, tailors will try to rectify the horizontal wrinkle below the collar by taking up the excess cloth in the wrinkle and putting it under the collar.

Thank you. I guess I need to layoff some more pounds. It cannot be from doing shoulder presses for just 1 month or so.

@jssdc yeah I talked to their customer service and they said their jackets can be let out in the waist by 4cm total which (according to them) is the next size up, so a 44 seems like the safest best. I've also been searching online and found a local store near me called hemies haberdashery (featured on PTO). I called them up and they have 100% wool suits starting at $400 with free tailoring they also have suits ranging upwards of a grand or two. The owner is a tailor and after talking to him I think I will visit heimies for a suit first. The owner said he was confident we could find a suit to fit me in my price range, being physically there will allow me to try on different cuts and fits and figure out what I need most.

No substitute for trying stuff on.  Sounds like a good place to start.

 

Hey @The Noodles , was this you?

Lol! These men do take care of their faces like chics and put man-makeups on. I on the other hand need to be somewhere in between. I have a unibrow that i shave away with my shaver and have never used lotion on my face. My wife calls my long eyebrows "cricket attenas."

Women put up with some strange shit, really.  Thank God...

Anyone got a recommendation for a place to pick up Inis Meain-like (or other good) knitwear in Amsterdam? It's a bit chillier than expected here!

Hi All,

 

For those of you in the U.S. that have purchased ties from Shibumi Berlin, how long was delivery?

 

I really love their current selection but last year I bought a tie and it took almost 4 weeks to ship. Sadly this has been a deal breaker especially since there is no other shipping option than DHL. Perhaps this was a one-off case?

I've purchased three ties from Shibumi.  My recollection is it usually takes 1 - 2 weeks for delivery.  Beautiful ties.

Pauw Mannen in Amsterdam is a high-end menswear retailer with a lot of things you may like...

Not sure whether they carry Inis Meain but they should have something that suits your tastes.

Hey all - I'm trying to explore more options for dress shirts. Usually I wear solids, university stripes, and small checks.

I recently picked up some very nice Brooks Brothers "Black Fleece" shirts. I'm torn about which I should wear with my suits and blazers and which should only be worn casually.

I'll happily wear the uni-stripe (top #1), and the small checks (top #3), but I'm less sure about the larger checks and varying stripe patterns, especially the large buffalo-check (bottom #2), larger checks (bottom #3 and #4), and varying stripe patterns (top #2 and #4). BTW, the yellow shirt (bottom #1) is being returned.

Anyone care to give their opinion on how (or if) they would wear these less traditional dress shirts? I have about a dozen suits and half a dozen blazers to try to coordinate with.

N.B. - I do not have a dress code to adhere to, and often like to dress down my suits and blazers (thus the preference for button-down collars).

Good luck. Hard to make out the top left super clearly, but I think that's the only shirt I could conceive wearing a tie with...

Hope you find what you're looking for!

I would agree with this assessment: I MIGHT be able to make #1 happen with a tie, but definitely not any of the others. Perhaps people who are bolder than me might have input on the other ones?

Hi Gents: Been awhile.

 

Figure I can get some suggestions here on some knit ties. Inclined to pointed ones. Have any of you experience with knits from Cordone? I suspect they source them from the same maker as Sozzi. These look nice (though the flat end seems to taper rather quickly)

I'm otherwise looking at a KW pointed knit in green (I know @Claghorn recently sported one on IG) or some Sozzi flat ends from Skoaktieboalaget. All seem visually crunchy and airy.

Shibumi has a nice selection of zigzag ties, slightly wider than others, flat end:
