post #19516 of 33127

Hi people!

 

Hope everyone had a good Xmas and New years!

 

I bought a Alexander Mcqueen McQ casual shirt today that I been wanting for ages but one size bigger. Usually I am size small but some items can be a little too small for me so I thought I might as well try one size bigger as it did say its Italian size so its inbetween Small and Medium. 

 

Here is the shirt I bought: http://images.sereneorder.com/images/products/zoom/1303920029-86154700.jpg

 

The sides are shorter and the hem seems to curve into longer towards the middle.

 

Just got 3 questions for you people.

 

1. Is this meant to be worn tucked in or out? If out then is it too long if it reaches middle of my thighs? Its about inch longer then my Desigual shirt.

2. If its too long, can it be made shorter by a inch without ruing it?

3. Does the rest of it look ok apart from length?

 

Here is a really bad quality webcam picture of me wearing it, can hardly see it so I apologize in advance.

Thank You!

The shirt would be fine. Great, actually- looks like a pretty fine cotton. Will you melt with a suit on? Depends on the suit and your tolerance for heat. There's always linen and seersucker.

thank you.  i already have a suit, i think i'll be ok, i'm just getting the shirt sight unseen.  just wanted to make sure it wasn't one of those super thick shirts, as they don't have it in stock by my house.

Two quick questions regarding a PRL navy unstructured linen blazer I just bought.

 

- Can I wear this year round, given winter daytime temps generally are above 50 here in norcal?

- How much is a tailor able to alter on an unstructured jacket?

Yes.
Same as any other jacket.

When I see a label such as this in an alleged sport coat:

 

 

700

 

Does the 7 indicate the drop thus in turn indicating an orphaned suit coat? If not, what does it mean?

 

Thanks.

Persol or SALT sunglasses?

Who makes a top-tier silk scarf, dark navy with white polka-dot? Don't want one of those reversible silk/cashmere things.

I'm in the UK (London) innit.

Cheers

Sam Hober? I know their stuff is top notch and they do make silk scarves. Not sure if they have that pattern, but definitely worth looking into.

I need advice on what to wear with Kkakis from American Eagle or Dockers. I want to wear a dress shirt with a tie and maybe a dark charcoal or dark maroon quarter zip, but what color of dress shirt and tie goes with those. Does anyone know if there is a website that I can find pictures of different combos?? I would like to see some pictures but can't find any.

 

Thanks for all your help in advance!

Do not wear a tie without a jacket.

I can't think of a dress shirt and tie combo that will look decent when paired with AE or Dockers khakis. Those are for very casual outfits and would only be appropriate with sport shirts or t-shirts.

Don't wear a tie without a jacket, you'll look like a waiter at best, a child at worst.

Try a solid (light) blue, solid white, or blue and white striped oxford cloth button down. Try Brooks Brothers for the classic, or Lands End for something cheaper. Just make sure to buy something that fits. And no non-iron junk.

You won't get much love for those chinos around here, but paired with a button down, a sweater, and some nice shoes, assuming everything fits, youll be better dressed than most people, so cheers to that.

Aren't Brooks shirts non-iron? Also what is wrong with non-iron?
