I agree with all of this. I bought a pair of khaki Rosens a few months ago. Very cheap with a discount code. They work well as part of my all-khaki corny-urban-safari-dad outfits.

Without considering the logistics for one second, I think it would be an amazing awesome thing to have an annual SF flea market where we all bring a suitcase full of used clothes to sell. I'm sure a lot of people would find it worthwhile to travel for a weekend somewhere and get to try on stuff from the B&S listings, and pay for the trip by selling their own stuff, while meeting a bunch of cool people. Has that been discussed before?
We did that a couple of times on the CM side. Was a few years agopost #10113 of 150786/2/16 at 4:15pmQuote:
Yep, that's accurate. Not really one size small, just...narrow shoulders. I have an XL that fits XL (a tee) and an L that I gave to my mom because it fit an...L. But my understanding is that sizes can vary a lot. If chest and shoulders seems small, they probably are.
IMO, the outwerwear is the standout. Not nevessarily the shirts. Depending, of course.post #10114 of 150786/2/16 at 10:56pm
We were talking about tshirts the other day - someone did a study of sizing and how tshirts shrink/strech over time.
Pretty interesting if you're into that short of thing. There is actual data for a lot of the brands we were just talking about: uniqlo, AA, club monaco, everlane, james perse, jcrew...post #10115 of 150786/3/16 at 7:51ampost #10116 of 150786/3/16 at 9:13ampost #10117 of 150786/3/16 at 1:10pmpost #10118 of 150786/3/16 at 1:17pmpost #10119 of 150786/3/16 at 1:45pmpost #10120 of 150786/3/16 at 2:07pmpost #10121 of 150786/4/16 at 3:07pmpost #10122 of 150786/4/16 at 3:41pmpost #10123 of 150786/4/16 at 3:59pmpost #10124 of 150786/4/16 at 3:59pmThread StarterQuote:
A full Windsor is a big, fat, ostentatious knot, but the half windsor is sorta the standard knot of choice. It's symmetrical, it's neat, and it is more formal than a four-in-hand. It's the knot that we had to use in my high school uniform, for example.
A full Windsor used to be more popular, and ties were tied shorter as well - remember that pants used to sit much closer to the natural waist. a half Windsor is not going to be that short unless you are really tall, or don't know how to gauge how much length to leave in the blade.
Also, I think that if a tie hits below the top of the belt. it's probably too long. A lot too short also looks silly, but I tend to err on the side of too short rather than too long, Too long says "high school prom."post #10125 of 150786/4/16 at 4:27pm
