    flare out at the bottom? i'll ask monday when i go in for some alterations, but i believe the waist might be too wide? so have it taken in for your shirts. i have similar situation, but more to do with a lot of wrinkles when i tuck my shirts in, like bunching.

    i.e.:

    I dunno, it doesn't feel like the waist is too wide. Like here, my oversized shirt hangs straight down and pretty much looks the way I want it to.

    This is how all my true-to-size shirts fit though - see how it flares out at the bottom:

    I wear t-shirts most of the time because I don't like how the shirt flare messes with my proportions and makes my waist look super wide. Can a tailor fix this?

    To me the flare is very unnoticeable. Looks like how I wear my shirts not tucked.

    This maybe a better question suited for the MC side. what are the measurements? chest, waist, hip?
    if you are worried about hip flare due to the shirt, you can have it taper starting from your chest down or perhaps just shorten the shirt before it hits your hip area or both to accentuate more of a v

    Where can I find some longwings that meet the following criteria:

    1. Have a darker brown color so the brogueing is more subtle
    2. Price < $300 USD

    Something similar to these florsheim duckie browns but less than $450!!!

    Basically, just looking for a nice brown shoe to wear with jeans that's less flashy than say, the strands in walnut.

    I love the contrast of my Walnut Lombards with dark indigo but if that's not the case there used to be a few PS ones that were darker I believe

    It looks flared because the waist on the second shirt is tapered a lot more than the first. If you lay them both flat you'll notice the body of the first is like this | | or \ / while the second is like ) (. Hope that makes sense.

    Hi. I´m looking get a pair of lounge trousers. I wantSomething that i can relax with is but it´s also presentable, so maybe a mix of loungy/dressy. They could be a little drop crotch, but no so much as if there isn´t any crotch at all. And I understand that drop crotch probably doesn´t go along with dressy, but something in between everything I said.
    I´ve seen brands such as Damir Doma and ann demeulemeester do something along those lines, but if you could recommend others or if you´ve seen own trousers similar to what i´m looking and post pics or w.e, i´d appreciate it.

    Edited to add something similar to what i want, and also to ask what you think of it.

    I wished there was a fit pic to see how they look on...

    Are there Ralph Lauren Polo shirts made in great britain? Just ran across a nice one that had the established logo on the inside collar but said britain on it. Wanted to check with you guys.

    Best place (online store that ships to Canada) to get some grey and brown wool gloves and some matching scarves? ~$30 each

    Anyone tried to tailor a blazer that was just a touch too big in the shoulders? Is it possible or should I just give up while I'm ahead?

    That's a pretty tricky and expensive alteration that rarely comes out looking great.. Best to quit while you're ahead.
