Nothing to worry about, but I moved my buttons a bit more in. You can do it yourself if you like, takes like 2 mins.

^^ what he said. i often move the button in on my right cuff sleeve and leave the left as is for my watch. ^^

Awesome. Thanks, guys.

Hey guys kamakura came in today. What do you guys this of the fit?









If you guys like it, I'm thinking about getting 3-5 more. I've already got a white and light blue double cuff that I like. I'd like to get a good number of these for more casual odd jacket and tweed wear. What would your top 5 be for this purpose assuming starting from scratch with this blue/white striped one. I have several ocbd right now but they are BB and don't look great with a tie.

I'm thinking ecru ocbd, light blue oxford with a semi-spread collar. Not sure on some of the others.

^ Looks great to me, especially for OTR. I'd be happy with it.

This.

Gotta say though, as nice as the shirt looks, the pants seem too small in just about every aspect. Low rise, tight all over, and very short.
post #2798 of 9207
Thanks for the feedback, guys. The pants are my beater weekend pants, my equivalent of jeans, but the feedback there is appreciated as well and will help for future purchases.

Any thoughts on the 5 shirts for odd jackets that I mentioned?

My top 5 OCBDs for casual wear would be blue, white, blue university stripe, red university stripe, and a wider/bengal blue stripe, like the one in your pics. I'm really loving the look of the Kamakura collars. They look great with and without a tie. Sadly, I don't think any of their fits will work for me, so I'm going to have to go through Luxire.

Very nice shirt...

If I only had 5 shirts:

 

Light blue oxford button down collar

http://luxire.com/collections/oxford/products/classic-blue-summer-oxford

 

Striped blue spread collar

http://luxire.com/collections/blue/products/blue_dress_stripes_gtz48783

 

Striped blue button down

 

White twill spread

http://luxire.com/products/alumo-white-twill-2-100

 

Light blue spread

http://luxire.com/products/sky-micro-herringbone

 

Keep in mind, if I could wear gray trousers, a blue jacket, and a brown tie every day, I would. 6-10 would probably have a blue check in there, a white OCBD, a white with brown stripes, maybe a white with gray stripes (which I still need to get actually), and probably another solid blue.

Ok, guys I really appreciate the feedback. Long shirt post to follow:

 

So I was going through my shirts that survived the purge, and it looks like I have a lot of non-essentials. A couple of ginghams, a pink spread collar, a brown/blue tattersall, etc. For all intents and purposes, I'm considering my current ocbd's out as they don't look great with a tie. The only things I have which really fall into essential category I think are:

 

White twill semi-spread

White twill spread double cuff

Blue twill spread double cuff

Blue/White striped cutaway

Blue/White striped Kamakura pictured above

 

Current Shirts (Click to show)

 

 

ONLY the tattersall below:

 

 

 

 

So, I feel that for my needs I have "dressy" shirts covered pretty well. Again, bear in mind I can only wear suits 2-3 times a week currently at best, and even in those instances odd jacket would be more than appropriate. I REALLY lack casual shirts imo. Additionally, as odd jackets and more of the country variety are my more consistent speed, I am also focused more on casual fabrics, hence more ocbd's. I have compiled a "to acquire list" of 10 shirts and want to know what people think:

 

Two spring/summer ocbd's, white and light blue:

 

Two fall/winter ocbd's, blue and ecru:

 

One year round ocbd, White/Gray stripe:

(Something like this but without the thin gray stripe)

 

2 year round spread collars (twill or broadcloth?), light blue and narrow light blue stripe:

2 fall/winter spread collar checks, blue and brown (should these collars be button down?)

GTZ48694_1024x1024.jpeg?v=1388747554

GTZ46231_1024x1024.jpeg?v=1357277364

 

1 spread collar brown stripe:

 

A final question. If Kamakura doesn't have what I want, what do you guys feel about sending one to Luxire and having it copied? Perfectly legitimate or not cool?

 

Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

Bear in mind that those vintage Kamakuras fit differently from the normal ones. I don't like those vintage collars with a tie at all. If I were you I'd get at least 2-3 plain light blue OCBDs, depending on how often you do your laundry. You can wear light blue cotton shirts all year round, there isn't as much of a seasonality like with suits.

 

Sending a shirt to Luxire is perfectly legitimate. They should be able to copy the collar perfectly.

Get better fitting pants. Those are too tight everywhere

Shirt is okay
