    Vest? Ive been absolutely obsessed with them lately...dont know why. Anyway Puffer vest are simple. Waist coats don't like em orphaned but button up sweater vests got me thinking. So of course there the blazer over one. But what about a open sweater vest over a oxford (sleeves cuffed)? Tie or no?

    I need a simple looking watch for $400-$500 bucks. Nothing too busy, and I'd like it to look as much like this as possible.

    I've always been a t-shirt guy, and have no clue about dress shirts. Never really paid attention to them. But after seeing these first two attached pictures I would like to try it out for the summer.
    Problem is that I hate long shirts/sweaters etc. And dress shirts always have that annoying drop on the front and back side which makes them go too far down. I don't like it when upper body pieces are so long that they cover the butt.

    See the red line in attached picture three for the drop part I'm talking about.

    But the first too pictures doesn't look so bad. They stay pretty high up, and don't appear to have that drop part. Or maybe they just aren't dropping that much on the front side? And I would hate them if I looked behind?

    Am I blind? Or do shirts like this exist? Because I only seem to find ones with the dropping thingy.

    pretty confident my uniqlo shirt doesn't have that. if it is the length that is bothering you though, I think you need to look at "sport shirts" as opposed to "dress shirts" dress shirts are meant to be tucked, hence, the longer lengths.

    If I understand correctly and you want something cut straight across (i.e. without the "drop part"), I think you'll have a hard time finding anything, and I would caution against it anyway. The shirt will probably look weirdly shapeless cut that way. You're better off looking for shirts that just aren't long. Band of Outsiders and Naked & Famous tend to have shorter lengths. Or, if you find a shirt you like that you think is too long, you could just take it to a tailor. A decent tailor could shorten it easily and cheaply. I'm wearing a shirt right now that I had shortened to a length that allows me to wear it tucked or untucked. Voila!

    Not 100% certain, but looks like Maison Martin Margiela Polo Funnel Neck Sweater from last FW10 season in rust colorway.

    That is the hem of the shirt you are referring to. Like others have said, you need to stay away from dress shirts for wearing untucked since true dress shirt hems are long as they are meant to be tucked into trousers. You need to be looking for a casual shirt with a hem length that falls just a few inches below your pant waistline.

    Do you know what a shirt jack is?

    Thanks. I couldn't find a picture of it anywhere, but it is consistent with MMM.

    I have a pair of EG cinch back pants and am thinking of having them hemmed very high so as to go for the cropped look. Thoughts?

    It just looks like an average red gingham windbreaker/jacket.

    I have a pair as well and just roll them up so I have the option. Not a roll fan?

    Don't mind rolling in general, but I was thinking of hemming them so as to have a clean line at the bottom.

    is there a thread up on the boards about watch troubleshooting?


    I have a seiko spirit that has decided to start running fast - not familiar w/ this phenom.

    You probably have a spring that needs adjustment. You should not try to adjust this yourself. Your best bet is to take it to your nearest authorized Seiko dealer. They should have a repair person who will be able to correct the issue. The exact same thing happened to me about 1.5 years ago. Cost me about $30 and it's run fine ever since. My Seiko was one of the Japanese models that isn't sold in the states and they were still able to fix it no problem.
