About to order 10 jantzen shirts - Page 2

Also, if you get the monogramming inside the yoke, does the monogram stitching show through the outside of the shirt?
I hope not. I have ordered one shirt with a monogram inside the yolk and was anticipating ordering several more (pending satisfaction with the first). My girlfriend thinks my interest in clothing is excessive; my ordering MTM shirts from Hong Kong just about sent her head spinning.

No, of course it wouldn't show through in the back of the shirt.   She thinks it is excessive? She should be impressed. Say something like "I gave up buying shirts from Bergdorf. In the end, no one makes my shirts as well as good old Ricky does." It is not necessary to disclose how much you pay for them. If she asks, just give a soft sigh, and change the topic of conversation.

In my experience, women are much less label conscious and much more willing to try "unknown" labels than are men. And they are nearly always looking for a bargain (just don't claim you got a bargain when you get her a gift.) She'd probably be more impressed when she hears that your MTM shirts are under $50 a shot. Any woman who thinks less of you because you do not pay Bergdorf prices is a money hungry b*tch with no classa and should be kicked to the curb as quickly as possible.

I'm planning on ordering about 10 Jantzen shirts later this week.  5 or so will be solids -- at least 3 white, and 2 different shades of blue -- but I want to supplement that with about 5 patterned shirts.  Right now I'm thinking that a medium width stripe in a conservtive color is a good pattern for a law firm.  But is it acceptable to brach out into conservative check patterns? Here are some of the patterns I'm considering.  Please comment if you have time.  I'm open to criticism, suggestions.  Keep in mind that I'm putting up those I'm considering -- I can't order all of them.   Checker pattern Checker pattern 2 Checkers 3 checkers 4 Checkers 5 Stripe Stripe 2Stripe 3 Stripe 4 Stripe 5 Stripe 6 PinPoint Oxford -- can this fabric pair with a suit? Thanks for any help.  Sorry to be a pain in the ass -- but isn't that what this board is all about?
Forget check a this is for WE ONLY Go for strips and solid, white, blue, pink

Checkered is less formal but can be appropriate as business attire. Do you recognize this guy, Ernest? http://www.pbase.com/image/26461811 http://www.pbase.com/image/26461810

Chirac must have houdreds of shirts and enough money not to buy his shirt by Kantzen... That means if you have not great deal of shirts better buy solid and strips first. You can wear a check sometime, nobody will ask you why you wear tis type of pattern... Our friend do not show any plain, too few strips and many check. Look at Blair, have you already seen him with a checked shirt?

If done well, with the right tie and suit, a checked shirt can be quite the dashing look. Also, it is probably safest to avoid sharing opinions as if they were immutable laws of the universe.

NO, I guess that I don't know these brands. What is a Moschino? I don't like the sound of Dior, Chanel or Vuitton. They sound too French to me. Maybe their clients are gay men? Seriously though - I know that women like brand names too, but that does not exclude the possibility that they are also more willing to experiment than are men. And I imagine that between living with your mother, not travelling, being the Rowan Atkinson of style, you have a *lot* more women throwing themselves at you than I do. Cheers.
