Loding has an online presence. I've been looking at them a lot.

What about with a blazer? Is a button-down collar OK then, or should they generally be worn without a jacket?

Go right ahead. Collar choice with suits/sportcoats is all personal preference, really.

I really like this tie, but I'm having trouble finding it. It is apparently a Canterbury of New Zealand tie.

I think I may go with this one if I can't find something better.

I'm undecided about this stripe blazer... can I make it work, or should I return it and get something easier to wear?

I've got my eye on these - love the color. But I haven't worn pants this bold before. What sort of shirts would one wear with these (if in fact you'd wear them at all)?

Button-down with blazer can look both amazing and...well not that good ^^

Hello,

 

I have a question about dress shirt fit in the shoulders.  I've searched around, but I couldn't find an answer to this specific question.

 

What is considered the "end" of the shoulder?  Where does the shoulder end and the upper arm begin?  I've been going by the end of my clavicle, but this is a good inch and half short of where the seam would lie if I just drew a line up from the broadest point of my upper arms.

 

Thanks for any input.

I've always believed the end was where the Acromioclavicular joint is. That is the little bump on the shoulder, about 1/2'' from the end of your shoulder.

Gentlemen,

 

what is a good shoe to anchor a new wardrobe with?

 

I'd like one that will go with as much as possible.

 

Thank you!!
