    do you just want the style or does the fabric matter at all?

    Thanks for the kind words, Notwithit. Pleasure meeting those of you I did in Philly. Anyone can always stop me and say whats up, I'm nice enough.

    Turns out that I need a quilted blazer. Current best selection is Burberry London. Any other similar fine things out there?


    I have never set foot in Uniqlo but can still tell you that there is no uniqlo bomber like this. You are going to have to troll SF and Sufu B&S, or wait for current season bombers from other designers to go on sale.

    Look at Mr Porter -- there are some good bombers there.

    What makes the Geller bomber unique? Can't really tell from here. ( cotton...rayon...$650?)

    IIRC, Urban Outfitters recently carried a slim, waxed cotton bomber; it looked decent, and was only $50. (I think the goal was to save money, no?)

    EDIT: Here's one. Vans, 100% cotton, $75. :foo:

    Where can I find a list of Brick and Mortar NYC stockists for Raf Simons? Is there any besides 7 and barneys?

    Also, who stocks the 1995 line?

    Seven & Barneys. Seven has not put all of their recent raf stuff online (though i have no idea what they currently have, they told me in a recent email they have the ss12 gold chain derbies)


    edit: has anyone been to the raf stores in tokyo and osaka (assuming they still exist)? so tempted to visit on next japan trip.

    The address listed for Raf Simons Osaka store is
    Herbis Plaza B1F
    2-5-25 Umeda
    Kita-ku, Osaka

    If correct, I'll check and let you know. I pass by this area almost everyday.

    Anyone got the general measurements for shirts worn untucked i.e. shirt length?

    For example I believe TB1 shirts are about 30.5, which is the length I have my MTM shirts made to.
    But if I am getting some OCBD MTM, how much should I cut down on the shirt length?

    Typical way of wearing it would be with cardi open or buttoned and shirt untucked, and/or with a wool sweater.

    Should I even consider this? I believe I read that BB1 bought this shirt that was the perfect length worn tucked/untucked. Understandably, this is very dependent on each respective body type.

    Asking as I work in a casual business environment that only really requires a suit and tie to be worn 2 out of 5 days in a week. Days other than that I'd like to dress it down with a OCBD untucked and sleeves rolled, or some other SF approved aesthetic. Not trying to go all MC...

    i don't want the shirt to be too long like streetwear. is there such thing as the perfect balance between dressed up and disheveled.

    What's the forum opinion on All Saints? Like the cut of their pants, may try a pair of chinos. Some of their knitwear looks interesting enough too. TTS? Where's it made (prolly MIC)? When do they do sales?
