    I actually just remembered a tee that I would have paid >$100 for (if I were a baller), it was a Julius tee, 100% cotton but coated and felt like leather/nubuck pretty cool.

    And I pay a lot for jeans because I wear them for 1-2 years near daily, I put them through their paces and it completely justifies the cost. Even a high-end tee would probably fall to pieces after that.

    I know I keep hearing that but I have a pair of "older" APCs (not produced in France mind you, Tunisia I think) and:

    1) I sized down one (wear a 28)
    2) They are slim and don't fall off without a belt.

    Basically the "excessive stretching", sizing down 3 and holes developing everywhere memes are a mystery to me


    I've found this to be the case with Dior as well. It seems like everyone on susfu recommends sizing down 2 on Dior. I stick to true to size. Even sizing down one starts to get a bit too slim.

    So... I have a random thought.

    Why the hell do you people love OCBD shirts so damn much? I don't own a single one and I don't think I've ever found one interesting.

    Roll is overrated. I guess it's an American thing. They are good, but so are regular collars. I have stacks of button downs so getting a few hidden placket fin collar shirts made at my tailor, in a heavy solid broadcloth. French Blue / Navy Blue / Cream.

    I just realized I can no longer buy the shit I want for my wardrobe for sale (well, deep sale) anymore. And to make matters worse, none of it is cheap.

    Yes, StyleForum, I blame you.

    I don't really have a problem with buttondown collars (I actually prefer them), I think I just hate oxford cloth.

    Hell, do designers even make OCBDs?

    if the point of your shirt collar can't reach your shoulders you're doing it wrong
