Dear readers,

I've been watching Styleforum.net for quite a long time.
I finnaly decided to do some shopping, and wonderd if this is the right fit dress shirt and chinos.







Edit: Is this actually the right place to post in?

Btw, because of you guys ( and this forum ) i began to start getting too picky in choosing dress shirts.

Sincerely,

Pavalion

There are existing threads for this. Those trousers are too tight. The shirt might be too tight, but it could use some ironing, which might be part of the problem.

Pants are too tight...that's why your pockets are flaring out. This mistake happened to me when I first started purchasing pants. Get a size bigger and have your tailor take the waist in.

The shirt is fine. You can get away with wearing a shirt of that size and fit becuase your slim. A fat guy couldn't.

As far as the belt goes.....most people on this site will tell you to loose it becuase most people here are not into fashion forward brands(Gucci,LV,Hugo Boss,etc) or items but do what you want. I would be lying if I said I didn't have a Gucci and LV belt at home. If you ask me logo belts are getting played out nowadays.

Could you please link the thread? I've tried searching for it, couldn't find it ( or i'm just not looking at the right place? )

It's a strech shirt ( 97 % cotton, 3% spandex, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Belt needs to go
Will do
