It looks like an ice cream.

post #25442 of 30357

A good sort of ice cream, or a bad one?

 

In any case, I have coined a new fold then, the ice cream fold. Finally I will be famous.

Any thoughts on whether this coat would be a good buy?  I've been looking around for double-breasted coats, and this is the only one I like - at least from what I see online. 

 

Also, do you think it would be ok to size down to 36R from a slim 38R suit size?

Hi Incotex owners,

 

What is the difference between Slim and Regular fit Incotex Comforchinos? Some webshops usually mention this, but I've seen a couple shops not mentioning this at all, especially yoox. 

I have noticed that Regular fit chinos have back pocket buttons, while Slim fit don't, but is this true?

I would imagine it depends on the person, but to me the slim fit is VERY slim fitting. Made me look like a damn hipster.

Does the slim fit have other noticeable features than just the fit of the pants?

The Charles Tyrwhitt 14.5 extra slim fit shirts have a 36" actual chest shirt measurement according to their size charts yet on this forum, people say that CT shirts are not as slim as the slim BB shirts, which are given a larger measurement on their website. Is the CT size chart inaccurate, or is the advice on SF outdated?

The Brooks Brothers Extra Slim FIt is typically wider (at the chest) than the Charles Tyrwhitt Extra Slim Fit. However, the cuts of the shirts differ for the different neck sizes, so at some neck sizes the BB is slimmer and at other neck sizes the CT is slimmer.

The numbers I have are as follows. For the 14.5 inch neck the CT Extra Slim is 40.2 inches at the chest (garment measurement). The BB Extra Slim is 39.5 inches at the chest (garment measurement).

Impossible for anyone to say. You have to try it on.

I just got sized for an 8.5 EE in Red Wing Iron Rangers, however, I am looking to purchase them on sale from a retailer that only carries D width. Do you think sizing up to a 9 D would work?

 

Thanks!

post #25451 of 30357

I ordered a shirt online with following measures for the waist:

front waist width: 17.75"

back waist width: 15.75"

 

The shirt arrived with

 

front waist width: 43 cm ~16.9"

 

 

 

back waist width: 41cm ~16.1"

 

 

So total waist about 33.0".

Unfortunately too small for me.

 

I contacted the manufacturer and got replied that this is normal as "(17.75"+15.75")/2= 16.75" on average. Thus front waist would always be 16.75".

For me this doesn't make any sense for several reasons and sounds like an excuse not to remake the shirt. But could you please give advice on this matter?

 

Thanks alot.

Probably not.

If 9D fit the same as 8.5EE, there would be no need for anyone to offer footwear in EE width, after all.

Thanks for the info. The link in your signature is very helpful as well. Do you recall when those measurements were taken? The current CT size chart states: "The above chart shows the measurements of the actual product." when giving the 36 inch chest size. Perhaps they have updated the fit since your measurements were taken?

 

EDIT: nvm, I missed the asterik exception where the chest measurement refers to the "body measurement."

I find it amazing how I can find blazers with 34 to 36 inch chest measurement yet there are no dress shirts that size. Why are dress shirts bigger than the blazers which are worn on the outside?

I recently bought a pair of Red Wing Beckman Heritage chukkas.  I am normally an 11D.   

 

I bought the Beckman in 11D and dear lord they are tight.  I should have found a way to get them in 10.5E.  They are too long and too tight.

 

To slowy break them in I would wear them to work everyday- drive 35 min, walk about 200 yards, take them off- then put them back on at the end of the day and wear them back home.  It took about 2 months and I can now wear them for about 2 hours.  Might put a heel pad to keep the heel slipage down.    I'm stationed overseas so I didn't have much choice- had to get them from Amazon.   

 

So- no, I don't think you will be ok with a 9D.  Try to get the right size- these shoes are made like a concrete bunker.

Do the Charles Tyrwhitt luxury shirts ever go on sale, or just the normal fabric shirts?
