About to order 10 jantzen shirts - Page 3

post #31 of 42
Women are a lot more willing to wear cheap rubbish than men, there is just no question about it. If my wife wanted to wear something by Marks & Spencer or H&M, because they thought it looked nice, they would, whereas I would never, in my wildest dreams wear a High Street brand.

I don't think that is true. Most men wear more junks than women. I suppose most men do not include readers of this forum, but just go to your nearby mass-market mall and see what people wear.

Well, if you mean the genral public, yes, but for the upper classes, no. Moreover, I live in London, not in the US

Oh no. We have the upper class discussion again. Somebody will get pits off soon. I still don't think that is true. Most upper class women wear really nice brands, whereas the guys will wear gap sometimes. Again I am in the US, so I don't know what London is. Now with Jennifer and Brad Pits moving to London to raise a family. I guess the upper class of the US is moving back to the old country.

Yes, but this is because women's clothes are somewhat dispensible. Some women wouldn't be caught dead wearing the same thing twice. So quality isn't really an issue when you are planning to wear a garment only once. Opposed to men who will get 10 years out of a high quality suit.

I also think that women's clothing simpy isn't as complicated to make. Put some stretch in a shirt, and as long as it has nice fabric, it will give a flattering fit. Women's suits don't need the extensive hand tailoring because they don't have canvas linings, chest pieces, etc. I honestly don't even think most women's suits are fused. I would say that shoes, and perhaps jeans, are a different story, as well as fancy dresses. But a top by H & M can sometimes be easily mistaken for a top by Gucci, whereas I'd never mistake an Mani for a Brioni.

You musnt not have many women experiences... DIOR, CHANEL, MOSCHINO, CELINE, Vuitton... Do you know these brands? Who are their clients ?
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.
My mother is a girl. My girl friend also a girl. Girls I see in the street, in PARIS (not in a US country like in "brothers cohen movies, fargo") are girls... Well I thing I have enough experiences to tell you fashion (expensive brands) are based on WOMEN's PURCHASE.... They may buy poor quality but for strong prices.

Gregory (or anyone really), with that pink shirt I was wondering what size collar points you got on the spread collar - I am thinking about ordering one... Not really sure if I should go all out with the Wide Spread Collar, was thinking more along the lines of just a #4/#5 normal spread. Is the standard 2.3/2.5 inch length of the points ok, or should I go a bit longer? I am around 6'0" and weigh 150 lbs - so I am pretty skinny with a normal oval face if that helps. Also, for that color of pink what buttons did you go with? I really want MOP buttons but the ones on the left are out of stock, and I wasn't sure about going with the gray ones with that color. Do the yellowish ones on the right side look ok, or am I better off going with the trocas? Oh, and one more question - collar stays, like them, hate them? What should I go for? Thanks a lot.
