    It's the worst uniform in the world. I'm glad that I'm getting out before they switch so I don't have to buy new shit to match.

    I think you'd improve your outfits tremendously if you didn't match your shoes to your jackets or tops like a Nike collector.

    Your color photos are great
    But i think a lot of it is that your outfits are colorful and you stand out
    Where as in the b&w i had to look for where you were in the picture

    Thanks. Just something fun.

    Good eye on the cuffs. There is (understandably) a dearth of black shirts out there of any type of quality. I have built a small rotation of cotton shirts that includes this JAB, Banana Republic, Bacharach , Port Authority and ...coff...Sean John. The JAB is the only one that feels moderately comfortable. These are all thrifted "try outs'' as I will be purchasing a fair number once I make a choice and the current hands down selection is the JAB. It's available in a button collar as well and, of course, I'll get them in my size as soon as they go on sale for buy one, get two free. I'm not enthusiastic about paying a lot of money for a bunch of black shirts.

    The polos would work but I'd need a pocket and besides, I like the long sleeves. I get cold in the AC, now that I'm aging. As to the shoes, I usually wear brown or black AE oxfords of differing styles. I just felt like suede monks today.



    Thank you. Much appreciated.

    Fair enough. In the interim, you could move the button on the cuff to get a better fit.

    No problem braaaaaah. I think people here only give you a hard time because they fear your progress. And being a cunt is fun.

    I think you'd actually look better with lenses that were more geometrically suited to your face shape -- maybe a pair that were a little more rectangular, and flatter along your nose.

    I like those -- they're not super expensive. And they fold and shit, too!

    Hey Dig, have you thought about going custom for these black shirts? A lot of online tailors are getting pretty decent these days in terms of both cost and quality and many will let you send them your own fabric upon request, which can actually cut down on the cost of the shirt quite a bit. Put This On has a few good articles on the process if you are interested. Just google "The Custom Shirts Series".

    Those are pretty cool glasses, but when I had the wayfarers (similarish frame shape) I thought they looked cool. Looking back, notsomuch. Also, these are about 3x what I usually spend on sunglasses, lol. I lose or break them almost every other month.

    Also, thank you :)

    Did you MTM the collar like that? It looks 2 sizes too big.

    ORLY? How'd you go about getting MTM polos? Sounds like something I need to jump on.

    Wang jokes aside, yes, I'm a fan. Kent's products and customer service are first-rate.



    I guess I don't see what you're seeing, Rambo, except that in the pic it looks like the collar might be resting back a little far away from my neck.

    The neck on my MTM polos is very nearly the same size as Kent's RTW size L, but the shoulders and chest are much closer to his RTW size XXL. Then I accidentally shrank the whole thing by washing it in warm water. So, if anything, the neck ought to look too small, not too big. Perhaps it didn't shrink in proportion to the rest of the shirt?
