Or do I just have to choose carefully?

A tailor can't make material where there is none. For people with extreme body types like yours, you're really best off going with made to measure.

It's a shame that even at discount, the merch is still painfully expensive. Yeah, I was pretty much leaning towards navy and charcoal as well.

I realize this is probably a bad and most likely stupid analogy, but is there any gateway-type company for trousers and slacks -- like with raw denimz, most people start with A.P.C., very classic, relatively easy to procure (not really an issue with my locale), pretty moderately priced, and a good value. Anything like this ring any bells for some of the MC favorites?

I'm going to have to start paying closer attention to the WAYWRN thread, fuck... 

What price point are you trying to enter at?

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone got any idea what jacket Yuri Boyka (Scott Adkins) is using in this clip:

Also, any idea where I can buy a shirt looking like this?

Thanks for the responses guys. I was definitely eyeing epaulet and will check out Howard yount for sure.

As I stated, looking for versatile, most likely basic/staple fabric trousers/slacks, hopefully below 250, but knowing me I'll go up to 300 if I find something I like.

Thanks again.

Very noob question. What is the point of a 3-roll-2? In light of Bond, have noticed all his jackets are like that.

What does a 3-2 offer that a strict 2 button doesn't? Just preference?

Just preference. Not sure of the history of it, but it was traditionally part of the trad sack suit. Most true 3-roll-2s aren't meant to have the top button buttoned at all--the suit binds and looks weird if you do.

Are Christmas Sweaters tacky for the occasion? I'm looking at few sweaters at topman which are christmasy but seem like they can be styled on...

I'm not a fan.

In moderation, at appropriate times and on appropriate occasions, some Christmas sweaters may have their place. But they can easily become tacky when overdone or when the season for them has passed. They're sort of like outdoor Christmas lights that way.

(Admittedly, I worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But I do have a certain fondness for Festivus.)

Don't know if this is the correct forum, but are George or Anthony Cleverleys worth the premium?  They are about

the same as St Crispins in some cases, but their RTW is more expensive even than G&Gs MTO porgramme!  Is there

something that makes them woth the price?

anyone have a heads up on where to find some nice oxfords online?  I'm specifically looking for plain pink and light blue with button down collars.  I'm shopping on a budget relatively speaking so something around $50-60 is ideal.  Looking for quality items though (obviously).  Shipping to canada would be necessary.

 

I've looking around on BB but found nothing and the sale is now over.  Fit is ideally a small but i take everything to the tailors anyways.

Try Kent Wang, although it's above your budget. I'd say get one better shirt than one poor-fitting shirt.
