    Oh come on, that shirt isn't so bad. If I had left out the fact that it was from H&M there wouldn't be this much hate.

    It's an awesome shirt, you should grab it while you can. Having to return mine though as it didn't quite work out for me. For what it's worth, I got 15% off mine due to a recent code.

    Wait, what? So you got the Visvim shirt at %15 discount from where? What size are you having to return, and what are your dimensions?

    I was looking at getting a size3 (L) because I dislike slim fit anything (I like my shirts to fall slightly below my crotch area) but I'm relatively small at 5'8 150lbs. I've never purchased Visvim so considering sizes from them is a bit difficult atm, please inform me.

    Bureau had a code over easter. I think a 3 will drown you. I had a 4 and I'm a lot bigger than you. I'd go for your normal size, so I'm guessing a 2. Shirt fits on the big side, especially in the shoulders but that's intentional.

    Ah ok, thanks for the fitting advice. Well, at least I know of a store that is willing to discount Visvim.

    Was thinking of another holiday that might be coming around the corner (considering for a possible future discount code) - and all I can think of is 4th of July "Independence Day" here in the States... alas too bad Bureau is in Ireland...

    Regardless, thanks for the info.

    Could it be that an Irish store would discount on "Cinco de Mayo"? Ha ha desperate thoughts here, apologies.

    I like those gap shirts but they will probably fit me like tents

    Where can I get authentic hawaiian shirts?

    or

    Hentsch Man

    Price is pretty similar. I'm not really a fan of APC but it looks nice and the linen blend is intriguing. I know nothing about Hentsch Man but again, it looks good and is supposedly "light weight". I've ordered 4 different denim jackets recently and none of them have worked out, so I'm looking at other options for lightweight jackets. Currently all I have is a tan baracuda style jacket (Rugger "weeds" jacket from like 2 years ago).

    Thanks, yeah I'm leaning that way. Hentsch is a little cheaper, don't trust APC very much. I'll have to look up a few things about Hentsch though.

    I like the raglan sleeves and snap front on the APC jacket, and I'm not a fan of the front pocket panels on the Hentsch jacket, but YMMV.


    On the fence about these. I have plenty of footwear, but nothing in this color. I'm not sure whether the extra panel and stitching will make them more interesting or just look like an extraneous detail IRL.

    Really not a fan of that panel and how the zipper intersects it.

    Anyone have experience with an opening ceremony suit? Looks like it could be a bit boxy... :/

    No picture, as I haven't chosen yet(!), but yesterday I broke my jeans ban and ordered a 9th pair of jeans!

    10 is a nice round number - should I find my Holy Grail pair and then Stop collecting at 10 pairs, so that I can gradually fade my way round my collection?

    I Think I've already decided to look for my last pair of jeans, bringing me to 10 pairs (but I live in jeans and don't possess any other skirts, dresses or casual trousers...

    No will-power...:)
