It is a nice blog.

What do you guys think of visible monograms?

http://24.media.tumblr.com/07fdbdbe6e7892087c38172da16ad578/tumblr_mh5kgnMFOr1qcklsuo1_1280.jpg

Personally I am not a fan at all. Seen a few of the guys at PJs rocking this look.

I'm generally pretty conservative when it comes to shirts, though.

It's not the sort of thing that I'd personally have, but I know that Ethan used to monogram some of his shirts (he did it himself) with either his initials or "desu" (written in hiragana) in that same area - the lower left chest. Having a monogram in that area seems to have become a bit more popular/trendier of late.

Were I to get a visible monogram, I'd definitely prefer to have it there, rather than on the cuff or the upper chest/pocket area, as the lower chest is a bit more subtle.

Not sure where the writer of that blog works, but I suppose if you work in a menswear store you can get away with anything smile.gif

My first PJ shirt has one just at below the right rib-cage and most people point out that I have something on my shirt. As a result, monograms on my subsequent shirts are not visible when worn.

Yes, lower chest for me too (by not too low, just under the ribcage usually). Sometimes it is subtle, other times less so. For the white shirt I had made from my wedding I had my wife's name (3 letters) monogrammed in red. You could not see it during all the formal events as the coat covered it (which I believe is part of the point of the positioning) but thought is was a nice touch when the coat came of during ceilidh dancing (very hot work).

Two interesting articles on monogramming. And by the way, for anyone who wants a great fun read I highly recommend Glenn O'Brien's How to Be a Man.

only averaging down:) obviously only a good strategy when you have high conviction that the true value will be realised above the new average value. If you average down to make your loss "less" its a fools game

yes lower chest/stomach better - not seen with a jacket on

Hmm some good suggestions above.

I like the idea of a monogram in a subtle colour that blends in with the shirt. If I was going to get one that'd be it. I still can't see myself getting them on business shirts though - maybe casual. I'm sure I've got that the wrong way round though.

I also think the wife's name on wedding shirt is very romantic. Might keep that one in mind satisfied.gif

On my luxire business shirts they're on the bottom of the placket, so not visible unless untucked.

On my luxire casual shirts I've had them put in on the inside back, next to the label of the shirt.

Only ever had one shirt monogrammed and it had both mine and my wifes initials on it, but not visible. Generally not a big fan of it but then I spent a fair amount of time with no jacket on at work.

Nabil some great looks on your blog, followed. You should post on here more often.
post #25483 of 51776

I go for the inside of my collar usually. Makes me feel good and isn't showy.

post #25484 of 51776

OK i know ive asked this before but I was going to buy the tanner goods "standard" belt in saddle tan and copper buckle from their site but they want another $65 for shipping. Do you guys know of somewhere else I can cop this belt without sending it first class around the world?

Hmmm, difficult question to answer. Specifically for share purchase, it depends on the rationale for purchase, as briefly alluded to by Romp.  I do stuff the old school way, so this concept has never been a significant factor other than for a quick calculation of cost base.  If something is cheap at $1, it is even  cheaper at $0.50 cents, assuming no factors have affected valuation in the interim.

 

Happy to talk further by PM.
