    Baroque... do you mean brogue? I personally wouldn't but I if that's what you want then make sure your jeans are slim.

    As long as the leather shoes are casual it is fine.

    none of those allen edmond shoes you named will go with denim i would like to note i also prefer baroque shoes but it needs to be a blucher. also why wear footwear that nice with just a v neck t shirt?

    just put on some converse/vans/ or cps.

    Trying to move away from club monaco, gap and other mall brands.

    I ordered a Wings + Horns ocbd from Gilt on impulse. it was like 40 bucks shipped. It said imported but I assumed it was made in Canada, am I right to assume this?

    is it cut well, I am pretty darn skinny. 5'5" 120lb. even j crew shirts need to be tailored for me.

    good call to buy or no?

    youngcy size small? the shoulder fit will probably be off for you unless you have a big chest and shoulders from lifting. but for $40 that is a good deal.

    reference i'm not much taller than you but weigh a bit more. i had one shirt from club monaco in extra small the shoulder fit was the same as size small w+h but fit everywhere else was bad so tossed it in the trash in a fit of rage :slayer:

    xs should fit you in w+h unless you like candy too much. band fits just as short but probably a lot more tighter if your buying overdyed definitely size up unless you like painted on :)

    Looking for a recommendation on a fitted 100% Linen shirt, longsleeve, button down. Lets put the budget at ~ $150 max, would prefer to get it for $100. Solid preferred, but a check could be ok.

    40 chest / 32 waist.

    I just don't even know where to start in terms of labels. I do know that what I don't want is your standard sack at waist button down or a $120 super casual (and ugly imo) shirt from Tommy Bahamas.

    A soft collar is fine, I won't be wearing a tie with the shirt.

    40 chest 32 waist thats regular you already have your own selection just don't sleep before summer is over then its slim pickings. also slim linen wouldn't that just eventually stretch due to the fabric?
    j.crew has plenty of linen shirts still that should fit you ok.

    I've come across an eBay auction for a pair of Augusta shoes. The seller changed the size information several times and will not respond to my request for measurements.

    Is this a size 5UK or 5US shoe? And do Augustas typically run TTS? Right now it is being advertised as size 7.5...and it was previously advertised as "size 5"

    /\ That is an older version Augusta/A1923, when it was still called Augusta. Back then, sizing was all over the place so don't buy without being 100% certain.

    Question for those who own Buttero sneakers.

    I recently bought these, http://www.cultizm.com/product_info.php?info=p3014_Buttero-B4010-Tanino-Fucile.html


    Killer shoe.. but they're squeaking like crazy. You can hear the leather insole rubbing on the inside leather parts of the shoe.

    It's happening on the edges as well as under my feet I think. Is this normal? Do they take time to break in and quieten down?

    I have quite a few pairs of CP's on the same sole, however they all lined and do not make any noise whatsoever.

    Cheers.
