    Trying to feed yourself with metal or long lacquered chopsticks is like the ultimate boss level of the eating game. Hate these things, and I'm Asian

    The buttons don't really bother me with Gitman, but yeah it is kind of a 'lame' aspect of the shirt. Stitching is incredibly well done however.

    Re: STP; I'm not sure where he gets his stuff, but I have a few formal shirts from there and they are excellent, no factory seconds bullshit etc. Some of the measurements seem weird to me, I think they do it different than how we measure. My Finamore is Dior slim, FWIW, and tapers pretty aggressively.

    Might get a tux there soon since the flood pwnd my Viktor and Rolf tux [​IMG]

    edit: IIRC, the STP guy can do appointments if you want to check stuff out in person. I'm pretty sure it's in LA.


    So what would you say the sizing equates to (i.e. X neck size would fit Y chest size)? According to their measurements a 15neck has a 42.5 pit-to-pit [​IMG] which is far from slim

    I've seen a lot of people out at the pool/lake today, does not compute. Do you strange folk not realize the sun was never out today?

    what is STP?

    I think the conversation was regarding STF (Shop the Finest) for the shirts, not STP. Someone switched the last letter in the discussion and it caught on like the plague.

    Don't want bb, tb, boo or uniqlo. Good quality, no logos please and not cropped or super long.

    Go.


    Kent Wang. Shirt is perfect length for untucked, material, fit and buttons are good.

    Depends on the maker, but Finamore Napoli is generally balls-tight, like Helmut Lang shirt tight, and probably the most compatible with SW&D oriented suiting.

    ah yeah I just realized my post didn't specify which I was talking about, I was referring to Finamore

    Haven't had a smoke in ages. Don't miss it enough to feel the need but just reading about it makes me want one.
