    That's a pretty flimsy reason though. Do you also steer away from trench coats and peacoats? Military origins.

    +1 million on this applying to boat shoes though, screw those things


    lol what? I've never understood this. People find Peacoats are perfectly fine to wear inland, far away from boats and the sea, but somehow the same doesn't apply to boat shoes?

    My only gripe with them is that they're ugly as hell. No offense, I know you like them [​IMG]

    bought 5 oxfords last night, but i feel so much more comfy in a knit + tee [​IMG]

    My spidey senses tell me that you should have purchased 1 oxford of better fit and build and saved yourself the disappointment. I could be wrong, but spidey sense is strong on this one after your last few posts.

    Yeah but I'm thinking it might even be cheaper getting a proxy from Japan since a few used ones pop up often

    ^ will return all if they do not fit. the most is i'll get hit with $7 return shipping.

    you can call this an experiment (while the shirts are relatively cheap

    more so, my body atm may change as well. i'm pretty thin but post work out my shoulders and chest maybe wider. i have to admit though, all 9 of my shirts currently fit well in the body imo, but the arm is humongous as i can extend my arm and pull at the sleeves from the side, which has 1" + or material--parachute?

    **tapering of the arm is an easy alteration? and what length is good for wearing untucked (might as well ask)?

    Tapering the sleeve isn't difficult as long as there isn't anything crazy going on with the sleeves.

    I usually try to keep a good 2" or more between the lower-most point on the shirt and the crotch of the pants, but there's definitely some wiggle room in there. I'd say the whole thing should fall below the beltline, though, including the sides.
