    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.

    why does the brand name matter? Shouldn't matter if it's zegna or kiton or Luxire.

    it just looks like one of those very generic type of shirts that 95% of the 'bros' on the planet are wearing out to bars tonight in new york...and most likely untucked.

    Short sleeve button-ups can go fuck themselves.

    @PCK1 it would certainly be horrible in such settings, but I wouldn't mind it in place of a polo, or a T shirt.

    @jcmeyer why the hatred lol?

    Obviously, it's far less versatile than a long sleeve shirt, but they (in my mind, at least) can certainly serve a purpose, and, more often than not, would be preferred over rolling up shirtsleeves (stumpy forearm issues lol).

    I would like it worn as such in the look below...excluding the shants and fuchsia belt lol

    On a side, has anyone tried Knot Standard? They've never really caught my eye, but I happen upon their site every few months or so, and it looks like they've nearly doubled some prices. to be fair, they're for the premium fabrics, but still, no noted structural changes plus a price hike of that sort is a huge turnoff...

    Noodles. It's not hideous but it is thoroughly mediocre and uninspired. You can do better but I don't think you have to burn it.

    As you noted, it needs to be taken out at the seat.

    Dunno why my wife hates all the casual wear, including that shirt. She started to do a makeover but dunno if they're better. They're mostly stuff from JCrew.

    ^^^ The most ridiculous thing I've seen lately is an article where women critique men's ties they have seen in bars.

    It would garner much attention on this thread, which could only please him.

    People with chronic skin diseases really shouldn't wear short-sleeved shirts.




    Wait...

    Do you get to do a makeover on her or is this one of those things where she thinks being female gives her innately superior fashion sense?

    Not helden, but I can weigh in. They were my first venture into grenadines when I first joined SF (circa early 2014), and at that time I thought they were the greatest thing ever. As I bought more quality ties and felt various fabrics and weights of interlinings, I realized how tough it was to get a good knot out of Chipp's grenadines--though not impossible. For the price, they are probably worth it. The silk they use is just fine. However, the thick interlining leaves a bit to be desired in terms of ease of a quality knot. Personally, the extra 20$ USD it costs to go for KW, HC, or DF is worth it to me for a superior tie.

    Here is a Chipp that I had to pull extremely tight to get this knot:
