    That photo sucks, but it looks more like a dress shirt than an oxford, so no, probably not. But if you want a nice yellow oxford like that, Our Legacy has one for 130 that you can snag from Tres Bien Shop or +46.

    Thanks for the help. That oxford looks good.




    No. It doesn't seem to be made of Oxford cloth.

    Check Revolve, ASOS etc.

    Hell, Uni Qlo and Benneton are sure to have some in range. It's a pretty ridiculous thing to request anyway. It's not as if the guy's wearing anything unique.



    Thanks, so it seems the consensus is it is not oxford cloth. I think it is more unique where I live (San Jose, California) but probably not somewhere like say New York.

    Unique or not, a yellow button down is a great piece to have in your closet; it adds fun color and works neatly in a lot of situations- it is also somewhat seasonal which I enjoy. After I do some spring cleaning, I might invest in one.

    Does anyone know here I can find the Dior (or so I think...) sneakers in the ad below? I'm pretty confident they are a past season, but was hoping maybe they were reproducing them or they are a new version since the ad (even though it's actually a Burberry ad...) is new.

    Quick question:

    I've been wearing a pair of dry nudies for about 3 weeks and I just noticed I have a little bit of a crease forming in the lower leg, kinda off the side of my shin. I think it is from how it was folded/stacked before I bought them.

    Is there any reason why I can't iron that out so it doesn't become a noticeable (more noticeable) crease as these wear over the coming months?

    Along the same lines, do ya'll hang your jeans at night to prevent stuff like this from happening?

    Thanks!

    why do people avoid tan/khaki color tops? I think they look good with jeans.

    I am still trying to find a suit for my wedding, my budget is limited. EXTREMELY LIMITED. I had planned on spending about 100-150$ on seperates at H&M but ...

    I am still not 100%

    are the regular suits much different than the 'designer collection'? I called all three of the H&M's in St Louis and they said they carried suits, but not the 'designer collection' suits which the Chicago store carries.

    I looked online, and saw nothing really about suits... or a designer collection.

    The lack of information on their website is nerve racking.

    I know i missed out on S&H on gilt, but does anyone have any suggestions of decent or atelast tailorable suits I could get for about 100-150$ a piece?

    I forgot to mention. I am wanting to get suits for myself and my groomsmen so I'd need them to be available in a fairly wide array of sizes.

    This or that? I'm looking for something similar to the BoO Coast Guard Jacket.

    Uniqlo
    [​IMG]

    or

    AA(in yellow with white contrast zip)
    [​IMG]

    The AA fits well and looks good, but the quality is suspect. I have yet to try on the Uniqlo. Has anyone have experience with the Uniqlo (slim?, sleeves) ?

    Look up a brand caled WESC. They have a jacket almost just like the BoO one. Same draw strings and design, plus it has a concealed hood you can have out or zip up
    i've worn it in a waywt or two a month or two ago. Mine is red but i've seen it in black too

    The Uniqlo one is probably decent if a bit plain...American Apparel is almost guaranteed to fall apart or feel cheap...look up Chrono's WESC windbreaker. Club Monaco has a yellow windbreaker that's a bit different that I wore in WAYWT a few weeks ago; I kopped that shit for like thirteen bucks or something wonderful like that.

    Chrono, have you seen some of the recent shit on Revolve? It's like those models don't know what size they should be wearing; brands that I know fit look like ass. Pitiful.

    I said in the revolve thread, they're awwwfffullll at styling. Seriously, they need to hire me and let me do the photo shoots for items. I'd sell more stuff. They keep doing weird ass boots tucked or with shorts in every single outfit and rarely ever pair decent stuff around the items they're selling

    yeah the AA was cheap and the quality was less than stellar...the zip almost broke when I tried it in store and there threads handing off.

    i'll check out the wesc. thanks

    An alternative to these? The obvious choice is Vans, I guess... [​IMG]

    Maybe there are people who favor neutrals and those who don't. I'm all about tans, khakis, browns, and olives, but I'll admit I don't see a lot of that out there I guess. I've actually been working on picturing myself in colors other than earth tones to expand my tastes.

    I think you need to be careful with that stuff and how it goes with your skin tone.

    And yeah, I'd say Vans would do the trick.

    I really want some Gucci shaman mocs, but I can't figure out where to find any. I'd even cop some fakes, but I can't find those either.
