    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Today at an op-shop I bought a Henry Bucks gingham shirt (sky blue checks) in a lovely cotton IN MY SIZE (wow) for $5. The sleeves are a bit full for the not ripped LM, but for $5 I'm a happy chappy. I also found a London Fog trench in my size but in beige (want navy), though it's only like $10 I might just compromise and only wear it if it's fucking pelting (weekly occurrance).

    Channeled my inner California Dreamer. I have a few more to hit up tomorrow (hoping to find an elusive rain coat)

    For some brands it does. Here's Sportscraft's pant sizing:

    [​IMG]

    Pants sometimes have longer inseams for the larger sizes (like in the chart above). The jump in inseam length usually happens between sizes 32 and 34.
    When pants or jeans are available in two different inseam lengths, Regular (32 inches) or Long (34 inches), the longer version is often unavailable on the smallest sizes (28, 30, sometimes 32).

    For $10 grab it, you may well find times you prefer the beige. I find a beige trench a nice light spring/autumn coat to throw over a suit without feeling too wintery.

    Navy is too ordinary. Beige is better. Is it the full Inspector Gadget? I think beige is better in a plain coat.

    LM's ideal boring CM wear:
    Navy pants
    Navy V neck sweater
    Navy coat
    Brown shoes (brogues)
    Ice blue/white shirt

    Minimal fuss - ultimate monochrome (my SW influence is coming in). The CdG one earlier in the thread is sexy (Kawakubo, despite her insanity, knows clothes).

    I suspect the woman eyeing it off bought it, but if it's there tomorrow I might just grab it, for a weekly wear one really can't be picky, and the ones I like the most are, like, $100 with shipping on the bay.

    What's on for the weekend gents?

    Tomorrow is dhaal, movies, op shop and dark chocolate sea salt brownies. Sunday is supermarkets, Grand Budapest and some exercise. Tonight is video games while listening to the gale force rage outside.

    get the sleeves taken in with the sides (or darts if it floats your boat). it's an investment.

    I must admit I'm besotted by it. Its how I imagined paisley in my dreams. I've only got a small bit atm 10"x 28" but I think I'll buy the whole lot. Make sheets or pillow cases.

    I'm going to wear it once and see how we go, it might not be a big deal, otherwise, yes I'll pay for $20 or so and have it sorted.

    Definitely.

    Do pale yellow shirts get much love? Saw this hit Kamakura stock and I've taken a real shine to it.

    Wow. Just wow.

    I was looking at the exact same shirt during the week and nearly posted on here with the same question.

    Yeah I keep looking at it. From a distance it's cream coloured but close up it has faint yellow stripes. I think Kamakura have pulled it off beautifully... I think it'll marry very well with a navy suit. :)

    It's a yellow check.

    I was actually looking for cream shirts and this caught the eye.

    There's yellow and yellow. You need to be careful depending on your skin tone. Combined with fluorescent lights it can make you look like Chet Baker with Hep C on a bad day with no hope of scoring. Ecru is best.

    ^he speaks the truth on skin tone there. I have an unwavering hate of cream shirts, they wash most people out awfully but have fond memories of a more yellow but still subtle Ganton shirt (when they were made in Australia) about 10 years ago. Navy is the right colour to wear them with them

    Looks like a Charvet shirt that I used to have. I used to wear it with a navy, herringbone weave suit or with a navy odd jacket and grey trousers (surprise, surprise). It's an unusual shade but can work very well.

    I hear you, but I really like off whites.

    I think they suit olive complexions more?

    Beautiful colours and fabrics. Compliments. Can I buy some off you?

    Chet certainly had bad days, most likely had Hep C, but I doubt he ever had trouble scoring.
