shirts are a slimmer cut, and the 'favorite wash' treatment means i can wear them with no ironing, or simply touch up the collar if i wear them to work.
This is pretty much how I feel as well.
I like the slim cut 'essential' (i.e. not broken-in) chinos.
I'll pick up the driving mocs at a very good sale price and still use some of the shirts I bought in college for casual wear.
I wouldn't tough the sweaters and I'm not really a sweater snob. My wife has a couple of the tailored items but those hold zero interest for me.
