    Quick question, would the shoe in this image be considered a chisel toe or a square toe?!

    Certainly not square toe. Possibly chisel, though I'm not sure I'd even call it that, looks pretty well rounded to me...

    2) Ideas on what to wear with a grey glenplaid shirt?
    If anything, a solid navy suit and a solid tie (maybe burgundy).

    I'm looking for a dark brown grenadine tie (a la http://www.samhober.com/grenadine-ga...ilk-tie-6.html) but I'm on a tight (student) budget. Where can I find a cheaper alternative? Everywhere I look only have 'knit' ties which have square/flat ends, which I'm not interested in. I'm in the UK if this makes things easier!

    Sometimes Chipp 2 has grenadines at a good price.

    Anyone?

    Yeah, mid-gray herringbone is fine. I think tan is an ideal warm-weather color.

    I'm going to have to strongly disagree. Too much fabric everywhere. I see shoulder overhang and sleeves cut too wide.

    Debating between the 60mm and 57mm. Attached photo is the 60mm. Is it too big relative to the width of my face, or is it about right? I'm torn as usually I wear 60's, but this frame has the 3mm difference but I've only been able to try the 60.

    Site related question: are "referrals" a good or a bad thing in member profiles? I don't have any, but I've seen a couple members with 1 or 2

    I think it's like when a new user signs up, he(/she) can type in the name of the forum member that directed him(/her) to SF.

    Gosh I'm being too PC.

    Could someone please recommend a brand or a MTM operation that make completely unlined button down collar shirts with a nice collar roll and slim fit. Fabric needs to be lightweight and comfortable foremost.

    Tie Crafters are the only ones I am aware of.

    I am tall with a very long skinny neck (6'3, 15.5 neck), any suggestions for shirts with a substantial/high collar?

    What kind of Gitman shirt do I have? I recently came into possession of a white Gitman Bros. Oxford Shirt. Fabric is nice and thick and is labelled "TTX". Fit is very slim, which makes me doubt it's a mainline Gitman? There is a box pleat on the back, but no locker loop or back collar button. Label says "Gitman Bros." and below that, "Made in USA" Navy Blue background with Beige letters and a green outline around it. Like this: [​IMG] Labelled as size "M". Chest pocket has a stitched chevron type detail, a subtle "V" if you will fropm the top down 1/3 of the pocket.
