    I'm trying to find the name of an American shirt maker, somewhere on the east coast, who's been mentioned here a few times. The shirts feature lower buttons, and collars that are supposed to stay up. Vague description, but that's all I have to go on... Thx!

    I picked up a Fitzgerald in 38R for 50% off. Checked both the Newbury St and State St locations - not too many left in that size.

    I also tried a Milano, same size and price. I liked the fit much better - more fitted and soft shoulders - but it was a winter weight, and I need a 4 season. I only altered the pant length on the Fitz for now. I'm going to wear it a few times and then decide if I want to take it in and get it tapered a little.

    Damn, that is a good deal. I'm going to kick myself if I find out I missed out 38R's. There are none left! Still plenty of 36S, 36R, 38S...

    Shoulder measurement is the most important. That's too big a difference, IMHO.

    Thanks! I had a hunch that 3/4 or 1/2 inch would be too much to let out.

    If anyone knows from experience, how much can a jacket be off from my actual measurement, specifically through the shoulders? 1/4 inch? Or is it really important to hit nearly on the mark for a good fit?

    Buying my first suit - charcoal or navy?

    No right answer and no wrong answer for this one. If you get the charcoal you should get the navy eventually and if you get the navy you should get the charcoal eventually... I think the logical progression is to either get a navy pinstripe or a medium gray, so depending on whether you like the navy pinstripe or medium gray more, I would go Navy->Charcoal->Navy Pinstripe or Charcoal->Navy->Medium Gray

    Hi everyone,

    I'm sure you guys see these posts daily but I'd really appreciate any guidance I can receive. I'm a 26 year old male that is unfortunately cursed (or blessed) with a baby face. Due to that, I've never really thought about trying to dress as an adult (horrible rationale.) With that said I need to know the basics that my closet should include. I'm a 26 year old male, 5'11" and 160lbs, located in South Florida.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    RRL?
    I don't think so. I'll have to stop by on the way home tomorrow and see if they're still there.

    Gone. I checked the sizes in both directions. Oh well...another day perhaps. Meanwhile, does anybody know what it says under this price tag? Starts with O (Maybe G?) and ends with HAM. Then it says CUSTOM FIT. Could it be GORHAM? [​IMG]

    ^^^gingham.

    Hi guys,

    Are pants with no break supposed to show a little bit of socks or not? Assuming you're standing still. Thanks.

    The fabric may be gingham, but that is clearly not what the label says. It's most likely to be the style/model, though I don't know specifically what that would be.

    Too vague to answer without any context. What's your job, environment, budget, dress code, etc.

    Would a 35.5" sleeve length on a 15.75/40 shirt be considered a standard length or a long length ?
