I believe Oliver Wicks finishes their suits by hand and has a full canvas option, but if you pay up for that option, you might as well go with Kent Wang. You can see his work all over this site. He is sort of a product of StyleForum, and active community member, and many of the best dressed people on the forum wear his clothing. You get full canvased, hand made suits and jackets for less than $800 (at the opening fabric grade). Can't be beat, in my opinion.

 

How about for a younger feel? The shirts there are pretty blah, and not particularly "stylish" in my mind. They seem like a much better option for someone needing to wear a suit and tie to work everyday, but it doesn't look particularly great for my style.

Define younger feel.

Slim/X-Slim fit, something where I can wear it with a casual-er feeling pair of dress pants, with jeans, or with a tie and regular slacks.

 

The shirts that come to mind are a couple I have from the Original Penguin. Sleek Dark Blue, can be dressed up for a wedding or can be worn out for a night on the town without any issues. 

 

The problem with the shirts on Kent Wang are that I'd simply never feel comfortable wearing that outside of a stuffy office. Even in my own office, I would look weird. It definitely doesn't look like anything that makes a statement that says "I know how to dress," it just feels like the same thing every 40-year-old office dad has worn, except it fits better.

It sounds like you are looking for "louder" shirting patterns, which I don't feel are appropriate for at least corporate office settings. Not that it's not done though.

I think shirts like that are more appropriate for creative settings such as marketing, design, etc.

I also feel like the "I know how to dress" impression is subjective. While one person may think someone is dressed well, another could be thinking the guy is peacocking.

Please provide an example of a shirt that says "I know how to dress."

My interpretation of that was something from Etro with a bolder design such as:

I personally like the second pair better. Where will you be wearing these shoes? What with?

Hideous.

That's the problem. I plan to wear at work with suits and everywhere else with jeans, khaki/chinos...

 

I believe the second is better with suits.

Would it be completely ridiculous if I wore a short sleeve button up over a long sleeve henley?

I have a few short sleeve button ups that I feel bad putting away until spring and thought of this to prolong their use.

Can it be pulled off or am I out of my mind:lol:?

I'm 100% certain some people do this. Likely even famous people, if only famous in a pop culture celebrity sort of way.

Plus, I think I may even have seen this look once on a character on "The Big Bang Theory." smile.gif

And this being StyleForum, I'm confident some people here will tell you it could look good, and you should do it. Because no look, no matter how awful, will fail to elicit an "I think it could look good," comment from somebody on SF.

But I think it'd be a mistake and I won't encourage you to try it.

Just wait for next spring. What, you're worried maybe spring and summer will never come back, or something? The shirts will get plenty of use, but in their seasonally appropriate time.

I've seen the long sleeve t-shirt under short sleeve t-shirt. They even make them like that, but don't think I have ever seen s/s sport shirt over long sleeve t-shirt.

People certainly do it. JFC people walk around in their underwear with jeans cinched at the knees, so I believe the henley under s/s button up falls somewhere on the less offensive side of the ledger, but also agree I would not encourage it. The whole concept for me is somewhat of a "kid thing"… when it got too cold to wear whatever cool graphic t-shirt I wanted to wear to school (the vast majority of which were short sleeve), I would put on a smooth long sleeve tee or thermal henley and rock my Led Zeppelin/BONES Brigade/Billabong whatever shirt over it… with jeans and Chucks/Vans. I suppose musician/thrasher/artist types could pull it off, but generally speaking I'd say it's a bit juvenile for the average guy who's not college-age or younger.

It depends on your age. If you're over 16, don't do it. smile.gif
