Hey dude
yes ive checked other websites and youtube channles about how to dress well, most of them tell me the same advice, " a cheap tailored shirt is worth 2 or 3 exensive unfiting shirts", those r not exactly the words but i get the idea. ill make sure to consider a tailor when necessary.

And yes ill definitely invest in shoes after my first paycheck and some OCBTs, i will have to dress shitty for a couple of weeks but i dont care as long as i get the job.
By the way engineers are popular for dressing sloopy here also. it seems they have the same reputation all over the world lol.

I must say that i didnt expect so much help from this site when i first got here but dude, i was so wrong tongue.gif. Thanks everybody for your advice.

Regards

I'm an accountant, our reputation isn't much better. Good luck!

Check out Stafford from JCPenney. Low quality, but when on sale, extremely cheap. Their "fitted" style is like a perfect fit for me, no alterations required. I pick them up when on sale to use for traveling or other beater situations. Their OCBDs are part poly and have a slightly rougher texture, but have a nice stiff collar that generates a really nice collar roll.

Edit: by extremely cheap, I mean I just grabbed one last week for $8. Sales are always happening.

Hello all, 

 

Looking into getting some tattersall shirts and am unsure if I should go with a button down, spread, or NOBD collar. Thoughts? I am not keen on wearing button downs with a suit and thus feel forced to choose between more formal or more casual. If I make it a spread, I would be less prone to wearing it with a blazer or sport coat, and or without a tie (with jacket), or even casually without a jacket or tie. If I make it a button down, I would be less prone to wearing with a suit.

 

Thank you.

My only suit, until last week, was a steel blue three piece, with 2.5" lapels. I went in with the plan of navy or charcoal. I really did. I could have ordered the same suit in navy, or charcoal, same price, but I tried on the steel and it was so sparkly!

Thank you.  


If it's a true tattersall, you shouldn't be wearing it with a suit.

 

If it's some kind of refined grid check, then it could go either way.

 

I have tattersalls with both spread collars and BD collars. I have some poplin grid checks with BD collars that I like, and one or two true tattersalls with BD collars, which I also like. I'd like some subtly checked spread collar shirts to wear with more refined clothes, and then some spread collar tattersall shirts to wear with tweeds and ties, when I'm feeling like a bit of an Anglophile.

 

If you show the cloth you're thinking of, I'd be happy to let you know what I think, for what it's worth. Also, if you could remind me what the NOBD collar is again (something with the member of that name, and with Luxire, but beyond that I don't recall).

Thank you for the response. Here are the shirt patters:

-http://custom.luxire.com/collections/all-sorted-by-price-low-to-high/products/red-navy-big-tattersall

-http://custom.luxire.com/collections/all-sorted-by-price-low-to-high/products/orange-blue-big-tattersall

-http://custom.luxire.com/collections/all-sorted-by-price-low-to-high/products/blue-black-tattersall

-http://custom.luxire.com/collections/all-sorted-by-price-low-to-high/products/green-blue-large-tattersall

-http://custom.luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/red-pink-navy-tattersall (like this one the least)

 

Here is the NOBD collar, seems like a more casual spread and Luxire stated it was their most popular non button down collar at the present time.

Also, is it safe to say with patterned shirts and suits, that the larger the pattern the less safe it is to wear with a suit? For example, gingham is acceptable to wear with a suit, but is pushing it. the line. Anything larger=more casual/sport shirt? For example, this is clearly a suit shirt (can be worn with other items, but natural fit is with a suit):

No question is dumb unless you could have easily obtained the answer yourself like by searching. You will notice here that most everyone will jump down your throat pretty quickly if you ask a question that has been answered 1,000 other times. Yours have been pretty specific to your situation, so they are fine, and you asked them in the right place. I'd avoid starting new threads for questions for the most part, just ask here.

They are probably a little long to wear untucked, but it depends on your environment. I wouldn't wear them untucked to work, regardless of what others at work do. That's just too far below professional for me. But if you mean making them dual purpose to wear on the weekend or something, it would be up to you. I don't as I feel they are too long, but you may get one and think it's fine.

I would look at H&M for dress shirts to wear untucked. They'd probably run you about 12-15 bucks each.

What are the names of each of these shoe styles in the following link? Thank you.

I think first has broguing on the cap. Tough to see in the pic. If so, brogue cap toe.

Edit: More exact name would be "semi-brogue" if there is broguing on the cap.

I had posted this in the good taste thread asking of its merit of good taste and got shit on for trying, it is like I said the Holocaust never happened.

 

So I bring the question to this thread and would appreciate a dissection of the look.


Unless I am dead wrong, I do not find this offensive to the eyes. I know perhaps to some folks this is pushing it, and I mightn't have picked that particular tie, most likely a solid, but I do like that tie itself. However I quite like that SC and think it was a safe bet to pair with a blue shirt. In hindsight, perhaps a barrel cuff shirt would work nicer than a french cuff in this outfit. 

 

I have a few SC with very similar patterns and I guess I am seeing what I like, but again, unless I am totally wrong, I do not see this as repulsive, I've seen much worse in my area from those who supposedly work in men's stores, keep in mind I am in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and it isn't exactly the Pitti capital of Canada.
