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).

 

 

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?

Thanks!


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?

What kind of collar and shirt is he wearing?

Can someone recommend a tailor in Hawaii? Specifically Oahu, but any of the outer islands will suffice.

Looks like a fly front polo shirt to me.

Any ideas on suit/shirt color for the tie on the right?  

 

post #25463 of 28787

Navy suit/jacket.  White or pale blue shirt.

Thanks.  Do you think a light pink shirt is too much?

post #25465 of 28787

Given the pink in the tie, yes.  It is somewhat too obvious to my mind.  Same if you used a primarily pink square.

I don't personally like pink except for super, super pale pink shirts. I would mirror what gringo says though despite not being a fan of the tie in general. I like the more standard Glen Plaid version of that tie (the one used for weddings and such traditionally).

Good point.  That was what kind of drew me to the pink shirt but I can see staying away from it for that reason. I still have that "matchey" habit I'm trying to break.

In the real world, being "matchy" isn't the sin it is here on StyleForum.  I too sometimes give in to the same habit.  The pink in that tie makes it not so versatile really.

Well, there is a difference between something being a sin and something not being n good taste. Sure, you won't get kicked out of the office, or not offered a drink, but it looks juvenile.
post #25470 of 28787

Yeah, I'm trying to stay away from "I work at a mall kiosk" look.  

 

I didn't realize I was limiting myself so much by picking up that tie with a bit of color in it.  I also didn't realize it was considered so formal (weddings/etc.)  I'm a pattern whore sometimes.
