    unbuttoned unless you're a cholo

    I mean the collar points, not like an air tie type thing. Or is the answer still the same?

    Depends on if you're going for that certain retarded "sprezzatura."

    (I always button collar points)

    Collar points look fine, bona. Don't worry. I've done it plenty of times with some of mine and it looks good and better than if i had unbuttoned them.

    Air tie can look good in the right circumstances too. If you can pull it off with the right look it can work nice

    Because the fit is just different. I cant take a BoO shirt to a tailor and get the same exact fit. If I could I would and save the $$

    Brian- You're 6ft?

    But yea, i'm 6ft and BoO small length is alright on me. The rugby looks fine to me. Roll up the sleeves, quit bitching about err'thang and just enjoy the clothes. It'll instantly look better.


    Just to add another data point, I'm 5'9" 130 lb. and I wear BoO XS ... fits fine.

    I have a similar problem as wmmk although i have a bit more a build than he. That is why i dont wear many button downs and get them at h&m because they have a pretty decent fit. I wish the mjk's fit a bit slimmer because i have a feeling they would be large on me.

    ya you can. generally this means raising the armhole a lot and aggressively darting the back. I know wwmk thinks the boo looks best on him through the body, but I actually prefer the rugby fit from those pictures.

    O RLY? Then why dont we all buy one BoO, take it to the tailor and get exact replicas made for 100$ less?

    Lol. Sigh.

    Anyway, uniqlo oxfords are washed to hell and boxy. That said, that can be somewhat nice. Slim boxy.

    Agreed. The shirt is terrific in fit and above average in fabric, and if they had more colors, it would be my go-to shirt.

    Did you actually read the conversation? Or did you quote me out of context. Its the latter.

    I'm referring to the "argument" again. Not you in particular.

    Oh its cool then, I'm not saying you can just tailor a jcrew into a BoO...Im saying...

    Nevermind I dont want to get into this again.

    WWMK, take the Ruby to the tailor and show us what its like, maybe you found your magic fit.
