    The people that I always think look coolest are the ones who put stuff together in a way you wouldn't expect and still works. And in my experience, they're mixing stuff from all over the place, not just stuff from one "aesthetic" or whatever, and not just high-end pieces either.


    I don't really have a problem with sweating, and even though anti-perspirant hasn't been definitively linked to anything, the idea of using a product that keeps me from sweating feels unnecessary and even weirds me out a little.

    First of all, I absolutely agree with you.

    I recently put together a grungy version of what might be a "Rick" out fit for someone using some very classic menswear/#menswear pieces. There was a grey Brunello Cucinelli down vest involved, um, some Drkshdw carrot leg jeans, some painted over Buttero hightops (actually, that was a really cool DIY project), a Dries van Noten skinny belt from last season, and a few tees layered - taupe longsleeve over a maroon thermal that was another DIY project - I think that it was a Buzz Rickson thermal, but it might have been Studio D'Artisan or something similar. An old but very classic menswear grey flannel shirt from Luciano Barbera was washed, wringed out and let dry thtat way, and tied at the waist. Sort of all in the melding of colors, textures, and proportions. I could have used most of the same pieces to do a sort of "generically handsome man" look, incidentally.

    Also, I belt that a repp tie could be used in a Rick outfit. I could see it being overdyed and made into an double-O ring belt, for example

    tried one of the CKC hidden placket shirts from yoox, ordered an XL.

    i can't imagine who fits these shirts well. big in the neck and waist, but tight in the chest and arms, with big shoulders. what?

    Mine doesn't fit like that at all (it's a L)... tiny bit tight in the neck, spot on in the chest, arms and shoulders, and could maybe come in a tiny bit in the waist but still tighter than, say Uniqlo slim fit - sounds like maybe you got a factory reject or something? I think we're generally the same chest size too.

    I think I'm a size bigger than you - I'm a 41 chest with a big back. I think the XL is a 17" neck. I think L would work well everywhere but biceps, where it'd be skin tight.

    it's not a mystery. people are just shaped differently, even if they're technically the same size. that's why I generally don't bother asking for sizing advice on stuff.

    The sizing probably fits the typical size 42-43, who has probably a narrower back, and has significantly more of a gut. If you are a size 38 or 40, and pretty average shape (um, me), stuff generally fits you. If you are a larger size, but not fat, your options can be considerably more limited.

    There's a couple of fabrics that yoox stocks, I think. I have an L in the thinner fabric that's really too small, and I tried an XL in a different fabric that was too big.

    also there's a good chance the sizing is just inconsistent from item to item. i got a blazer from gilt that fit huge compared to the one I have from yoox
