    HI, I always have problems with shirt fittings since i am bulky in the shoulders and chest and have a thin waist, One OTR brand that fit me perfectly was the Express 1mx Modern fit in Large.
    Im looking at JCrew shirts becasue Ive seen it mentioned they dont billow at the waist, Im wondering if I would be a Large in JCrew slim shirts as well?

    I called them since I dont have a store in my area, but they just give generic sizes that sound fine but who knows - lots of their shirts that are on sale are final sales, so just seeing if anyone else has the same build and experience with these shirts.

    TYIA

    Buy a full priced one to test the sizing? Anyone with a abnormally big drop will probably have to befriend a tailor or go MTM. Your best bet is to shop around various brands if you aren't willing to go for alterations. I either alter mine or buy Epaulet/WvG and deal with a slightly oversized collar (to accommodate the other measurements).

    Try AA. Good for layering.

    For what reason is Vibram typically preferred over Topy by owners of Guidi and Augusta shoes? I've never even heard of anybody Topying their Guidi/Augusta shoes, yet everybody seems to have the Vibramed.

    I had my Guidi's topy'd really there is no difference just comes down to what the cobbler uses/prefers. In Australia topy seems to be the preferred brand I don't know why just seems to be

    There's a Red Wing store in Sunnyside. If they don't have them I'm sure they can point you in the right direction.

    Do you guys size up on sweaters when they are layered over a dress shirt?

    I'm typically a XS for dress shirts, but I'm thinking sweaters in XS will be a little too tight when layered.

    And on that note, does anyone think it's weird when the tie underneath the sweater bulges a little or when you sit down it curves and makes an artificial beer belly? Any way to avoid this?

    Recently bought some henleys from AA, how much shrinkage should I expect? The fit is good but its a tad bit long.

    P.s Sized up, S was to tight and M fit decently after the first wash.

    1. If you had to choose one of the following, would you buy...
    a. Burgundy chinos/jeans
    b. Burgundy corduroys
    c. None of the above, men shouldn't wear colored pants?

    2. Should men with big shoulders/chest & slim waist avoid tapered-ankle pants due to big triangle silhouette?
