Agree, but CT shirts are like a semi-tent, even their slimmed fit (tailored fit). I know the guy didn't mention what he was looking for in terms of fit, but CT shirts are not so slim.

I have another question:

 

How do you folks take care of your sweaters so that they don't get any moth holes in them?

 

I've just had all my sweater destroyed after not taking good care of them. Thankfully, none of it was expensive.

 

And second, do you hang or fold your merino wool cardigans? I fold all my v-neck and crew neck sweaters and hang  my cardigans? I wonder if I should fold them instead.

The tailored fit are quite slim, moreso than Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit, at least for neck sizes 16" and above. Below that, Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit are slimmer than CT.

 

Here is a link to get shirts for $40 each: http://www.ctshirts.com/Default.aspx?q=aw008|||||||||||||||

To each their own....

Nobody said to smother them, in fact I didn't say anything about the amount to use,,,, I put just a little bit on my dress shoes and it works great for me and I don't re-apply for a long while, on my work/casual shoes I put a decent amount and they hold up for ages under most conditions and lots of abuse, so personally I can't say anything bad about the stuff but ymmv,,,, I do agree that you shouldnt use a lot of this stuff and it isn't the best shoe care product for high end dress shoes.

New here...

 

I will be having my first "formal" job interview in  2 weeks time.

 

I have never dressed up and I never really cared about style until now.  (jeans and tshirts type of guy) confused.gif

 

I'm a male, 22 years old, 5'3", 135lbs, short dark hair.

 

What should I wear?  Where can I purchase it?   What size am I?

What color tie? Shoul I even wear a tie?  shoes, what type of shoes?

 

Thanks

 

You can include images etc.

Your best bet is to go to a Brooks Brothers or a fine mens retailer and have them take your measurements.

 

What's your budget?

My budget is no more than $100

 

I should also note that I'm moving away and my budget is pretty tight at the moment.  

 

Can $100-$150 at the most,  get me a decent suit?

 

It's for a teaching job, if that matters.

 

Thank you very much

You can get a ~$100 linen suit from H&M.

White or light blue dress shirt. My preference is a burgundy tie. White linen pocket square if you really wanna look nice.

I have 100 dollars to Ralph Lauren that I need to spend before it expires. What should I buy? I was looking at various pants and wondering which cut was their slimmest. All of them look gigantic on the site. Is Rugby slimmer? What pair out right now is my best bet?

The new Gap slim fit that someone else mentioned is actually quite good. A better fit than J. Crew or Brooks. Nothing fits me all that well from Gap but these are great out of the box. And cheap at 30% off when they run a sale, which is often.

Attending a wedding soon. "theme" colour (urgh) is purple (grape shade, not violet). I have a repo stripe that will look like I am participating without taking me into the cheese zone.

Silver gray suit, white shirt .... black shoes or burgundy shells?

Just got this Borrelli shirt. It is a nice fine fabric but somewhat see . I don't wear jackets usually. What should I do? If I wear a white under shirt it will surely be visible underneath. Fit is OK. I'm planning on slimming it.

It's been recommended on here to wear grey shirts under shirts that are thin as they don't reflect light as much as white.
