    Is this shirt good looking, stylish, and not metrosexual? I have no style muscle so I need your opinions please!

    Yes, that is really me. Sure I'm pudgy but I have lost over 10 lbs this year.

    imho, shiny shirts are a no-go.

    Need RLPL 16.5 or 16... 34/35 dress shirts fairly quickly.

    Does anyone have any recommendations other than paying full price on ralphlauren.

    Thanks

    Help with shoulder sizing! If my shoulders are 18 inches, do I select jackets with 18 inch shoulders? Or is there an offset similar with the chest sizing (ie. if I measure a 42 inch chest, I need a 44 inch jacket)

    Thx!

    Shirt's fine, fit is not. Overly baggy at several areas.

    For a business casual environment, and just a business environment all around, should I buy j crew ludlow worsted wool trousers or regular j crew ludlow wool trousers? I guess my question is, which one looks better?

    Looks somewhat 'intellectual'. If that is your aim, then it's good.

    But then what do I know... I have no style! [​IMG]

    If I take a 7.5UK on a pair of bench Borrelli/Sutor Mantellassi, what size Sutor Mantellassi should I get on EUR scale? 41 or 41.5?

    The strong contrast of the pocket square is jarring. Something more harmonious with the rest of the elements would create a unified look.

    I have a pair of these and they are fine. Do NOT pay the retail of around $180 as they can be had for half of that on eBay. They are very lightweight wool so fine for occasional use in the the summer but won't last long if you are wearing them twice weekly on a rough commute.
