If you're open to options, I've heard good things about ascolour.

Awesome. Thanks!

Why not just go to kmart for plain tees.

And Monk 60 Inferno. Why is everyone complaining about getting 1 hit deaths in Inferno? Or am I just still too early into act 1?

I got a few uniqlo t-shirts whilst in London last year. Great value, but they are not holding up anywhere near as well as the Sunspel t-shirts I bought about 6 months earlier.

I think that says more about you blah than it does about the candidate.

^^ I think management made a right call though. His shirt was wrinkled and even looks unwashed, with badly done up tie and top button undone. Same story with his trousers. Speaks a lot about his attitude.

And considering how you guys get so excited over 1 curled collar...

It really depends.

I think that if he was a very brilliant candidate, particularly someone very early in their career, then there's an opportunity to mould him into an outstanding worker, who you can influence into dressing well.

I remember the scene in The Pursuit of Happyness [sic] where Will Smith's character is at a job interview with no shirt on and he's asked what he'd say if someone hired him dressed the way he is and he says, 'He must have had on some really nice pants!' If you haven't seen the movie, it's worth watching.

Or it could speak a lot about his priorities. Maybe he is so focussed on his work he doesn't have time to worry about irrelevant things like ironing his shirt. Not the kind of guy you want meeting clients perhaps (depending on who they are), but who wants a dandy in the back office?

Speak for yourselves! If our political leaders have curled shirt collars and do a good job of running the country I could care less. If they come on SF and start pretending to be an authority on clothes, then that's another thing.

Problem is that he wasn't even trying to be neat let alone actually well dressed. There's a difference between ill fitting and not trying at all - one is ignorance and the other one is apathy. It's going to be client facing too so not a back office job.

Hey c'mon, this is Styleforum. Dressing badly is never ok. N-E-V-E-R. Never.

Hi Gents,
Last week I have ordered some cedar shoe trees form endless. 7 pairs in total. I read some where importing wooden goods in Australia is restricted/prohibited ?!
Now every time I order something from endless it usually clears in customs in few hours if not by the same date. By the below tracking it seems like they may have been stuck with customs. Just have a bad feeling Australia has worst customs ( from my past personal experiences) . What are the chances that they will confesticate these items ??
Has anyone had any problems importing shoe trees form US ?? Is 7 pairs of shoe tree too many for Aussie customs ??



Arrived at destination and will be entered into the delivery stream after sucessful clearance 2012-06-04T04:20:29-05:00 AU
Consolidation Arrived - Pending Customs Clearance and inbound Scan 2012-06-03T09:57:00-04:00 AU
Exported i-Parcel and in transit to country of destination 2012-05-31T08:32:00-05:00 Carlstadt NJ US
Received at i-Parcel 2012-05-30T13:03:07-05:00 Carlstadt NJ US

Below is the aupost tracking shows the item was received on the 31st May.
