    Sorry, but that shirt is way too tight on you. The shoulders are a little too small and the arms and chest are too tight. You need to find a shirt that fits you correctly.

    Anyone know of a place to get suede wingtips with a red brick sole? Alden made a model for Blackbird awhile ago, but they've got very limited sizing at this point. I think Tricker's made something like this a about a year ago, but I can't find anything quite like this now. [​IMG]

    My jacket was recently stolen, so I'm in the market. Are toggle coats OK to wear in an office-setting? Was thinking of grabbing the Schott NYC one.

    Why do you say this? I don't see any pulling. I think the shirt looks fine, especially compared to what one normally finds.

    Depends on the office / kind of work you do. For all but the most formal of professions - I'd say yes. What kind of work do you do?

    Can someone recommend a houndstooth micro-check shirt in blue and white? I have one from Uniqlo from some years back, but it's wearing out and they don't seem to make it anymore. (And I'm no longer impressed by their quality.)

    Alternatively, I'd go for a gingham shirt, like this one but with button cuffs. But I'd prefer the houndstooth.

    Anyone know any good alternative to Quoddy. I like the Maliseet oxford in black but I can't justify spending $250 on a casual style shoe. I have the LL Bean Bluchers which are great but the don't come in black.

    That site has blue gingham with button cuffs in case you didn't see it.

    I did, but it's in a twill fabric and I thought broadcloth or similar might be more versatile for dual suit/casual wear. Or is the twill fine either way?

    I have something exactly like that from BB except it's in camelhair. I'm not sure if they still make it but might be worth a check.

    I think it's fine either way. I wear mine with jeans, jackets and suits.

    What is the least creasing shirt material? Polyester, silk? Twilled cotton? I'm looking to order more mtm shirts, but I don't want them to be raunchy.
