Agreed. It''s probably a lot higher here than average. I think 7 is probably more average for the rest of the non-SF world.

Hello everyone. Hope your all doing well. Quick question. I just has CEGO make me some custom shirts which came out amazing, and the shoulder to shoulder he used was 18.75...

Now OTR, RLBL fits me fantastic with very minimal alterations needed. If i buy OTR, and pick up a steal, i need to keep my tailor expense below 150 otherwise im better off going MTM IMHO...

Now, The RLBL suit which fits me very well is a 19 shoulder to shoulder. What is the acceptable tolerance allowed here for a suit jacket would you say? Dont look at any suits under 19? or 18.5 you think would be ok? How much does that quarter to half inch really matter? Better off getting a 19 shoulder chest? Maybe going up to a 44R? It is to my understanding the shoulder measurement is the most important. THANKS!!!

Measuring a suit based on your shirt measurements is apples and oranges. It won't work. The best thing to do is try on suits to know your size. Remember suits are measured by their chest, not their shoulders. Also, straight measurements across a shirt, or a suit, or anything is meaningless. 2+2=4, but so does 3+1. There is much more to fit than just straight lines.

Anybody know of any brands that make underwear that conforms to every part of your body and makes you feel like you're wearing nothing? I think hanro and zimmerli are among the top luxury brands, but if quality means only the fabric is better, I wouldn't know the difference on my body if I had hanes briefs or hanro mercerized cotton on me.

What's a good choice for a first decent pair of dress shoes?  I was thinking going black, something along the lines of an Allen Edmonds Park Avenue.  I will be wearing these to work at an Investment Bank in NYC.

 

Thanks

That would be fine. You might also be able to get away with a wingtip, in black.

prolly not your thing but underarmor compression shorts are sweet...cool, light, dry, no bunching, and very comfortable. 30 bucks a piece tho.

I got my eyes on this suit. Do you guys think the button stance it's a bit high? I'm feeling like so, but I could use a second opinion. Thanks folks.

Probably not haha.  But you're the the only person to post a reply to me so that means a lot.  Thank you.  I wish under armour didn't discontinue their briefs then.  I know they made them before.

Thank you for the reply.  Yeah, it's not my thing haha, but it means lots for you to even reply, since you're the first person to reply to me.  I wish UA didn't discontinue their briefs then.

 

Sorry, mods didn't see that message til now.  Hope the post is approved.

Depends on which Investment Bank I reckon, if you start as an analyst you probably do not want to have more expensive shoes than the senior folk.

I can't find the exact model I am looking for but it's actually a combination of the two, you only have the outer lining on the tip, not the dots on the very edge on the tip (in terms of clarity I think this sentence is not really helping you sorry)

Those are both fucking awful. And I think what you're describing might be an austerity brogue? Something like the EG Beaulieu:
