    Put in an online order yesterday morning.

    1x OCBD in white

    1x Cotton Cashmere V-Neck Sweater in Indigo

    1x Cotton Cashmere V-Neck Sweater in Garnet

    1x Point Collar dress shirt in med. gingham in English Grape

    1x Wool Trilby Hat (which, due to the demographics of the area of L.A. I live in, I've sworn to myself that I'd never wear unless it was either just above freezing or I was pairing it with my trenchcoat)

    I can't wear the chambray with the tab collar - i feel like it looks goofy. Can someone post a worn pic?

    I feel like it's just sticking out randomly and looks bizarre

    A search would have revealed this post: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...postcount=1744

    I don't feel it's goofy at all.

    for those that purchased the red chambray ......

    i noticed in the description that it uses linen, but does it say the percentage. the reason that i ask is because i find linen to be really inconvenient when it comes to rolling up sleeves and making its own shape over time. meaning, i hate sloppy looking sleeves and semi-permanent wrinkles in the body when wearing linen over time. not to mention its dry clean only (i think).

    why this shirt couldn't be a all cotton, i'll never know. what do you guys who own think so far ?

    Its 25% linen. Shirt is not dry clean only, and the sleeves dont stay rolled up. My sleeves are a bit loose as well for an XS.

    Does anyone know the best way to shrink the shirt a bit? Or should I just bring it to a tailor?

    The linen is also a huge non-starter for me. Oh well, that saves me $85.

    well, you can either wash it and throw it in the dryer and hope it shrinks the way you want (and not in a way you don't want) or you can take it to the tailor. I never really like to machine-dry my shirts, so I'd just go with the latter.

    Could always just throw it in the dryer to shrink it a little... I think willycheesesteak said that he had his tailor slim up the sleeves on his. I've heard its pretty cheap and easy for a tailor to do, but I still don't know if I trust the tailors (drycleaners) around me to not screw it up.
    That said, I don't find the loose sleeves to be too much of a problem: either I'm wearing a jacket/sweater over them so you can't see them, or if I'm not- I have them rolled up and then its not noticeable. For me thats actually the upside of looser sleeves...on the flip side its a pain in the ass to roll up the sleeves on my BOO shirts b/c the sleeves are so slim.

    I like the Utility Jacket more than the cadet. I think its those big pockets that make it look different.
    Looks like an excellent fit though.

    I really like everything about that jacket EXCEPT the epaulets. I wish they had not added those, otherwise it's a win. [​IMG]

    A reasonably skilled seamstress or tailor can take those off without a trace. I have a Ralph Lauren officer's coat that had epaulets on it, and I had them removed. In this case, the epaulets lay very flat so they don't bother me too much.

    The jacket looks really good. What size is it and what are your stats, no homo.
