Pretty skimpy, yes. It is a very casual shirt, so maybe not the end of the world, but I'd certainly prefer it to be beefier.

The real question is which is more your style.
post #23884 of 33063

Looking for a inexpensive navy/white pindot tie

 

Should I get one from charless tyrwhitt (free with purchase of a shirt - about $50 total)

or should I get this pre-owned lands end one for around $6 or ...?

Can I 'un-botton down' a collar? Will it be as easy as it is in my head to cut and re-size the collar myself? Thanks!

Just leave it unbuttoned.

As a 20 year old, my style is to look better than others around me. Wear a lot of chino of various brown shades and a lot of denim...all fitted very well. Slim fit dress shirts and polos is what i wear on my top half and i leave them untucked...occasional tuck if putting on a sports coat (of which i have a grey and navy one) and as of late have been tucking in often since I'm going through a slim-fit sweater over dress shirt phase. Does this aid in your assessment? I currently have tan bucks, brown loafers, dark brown sperry tassle boat shoes, AE walnut sanfords, and some black close laced oxfords from...J&M -.-. One pair of vans canvas sneakers in grey also.

 

Does this define my style more? I have a dark complexion if that matters. My style is to look 25 years old - 30 years old in my dressing since my face makes me look 13. Just want to add another shoe to the collection...that is versatile enough to wear with the kinds of pants and style i have...so does all this answer your question and help in you helping me decide between beeswax desert boots with crepe soles or red-soled white bucks? Thanks a lot

 

P.S. A seersucker suit will be in my collection next year if i get a good deal.

I'd still go with the beeswax desert boots. They are a great and versitle boot for denim and chinos alike. They are a great casual shoe but can easily be paired with a dress shirt and blazer for evening drinks at the bar.

Purchased a blazer. What do you guys think of the fit? I tapered the sides a bit.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Shoulders, lapel width, and jacket length look spot on.  It is slightly too tapered for the conservative minds (notice the "X" at the buttoning point) and sleeves could be approximately .5" longer to show less shirt cuff (but that is personal preference).

The angle of the shot exaggerated the cuff's length. The cuffs only protrudes half an inch from the suit sleeves.

Agree the sleeves could be slightly longer, but not critical. How's the back? That trim in the front, I have to wonder how the back lays. Very nice looking though. Where from?

post #23894 of 33063

how do i remove the sticky residue from shoe tongues? peeled them off and trying to figure out how to get rid of the stickyness without damaging the leather.

Thanks for the feedback. You're right that it is a very loud and casual shirt. To that end I normally wear it with both top buttons undone instead of just the one, which I feel kind of helps the collar to spread out and not look so small against my head. I just ran off to Brooks Bros and ordered two of their linen sport shirts on clearance for $49 each. Linen is a great material out here, and I do so love the generous collar of a Brooks Brothers shirt :)
