    Today I picked up the white band of outsiders oxford made just for south willard, love it.

    pics please. Despite seeing them in so many places, I've yet to try one on for fear of liking it too much and not in the mood to drop close to $300 on a shirt these days.

    J,
    You realize barney's pricing has been off as of late? I got the white oxford for 195 and it has white instead of black buttons which seem like a novelty to me. The stripe shirt I picked up had a little more style than the regular striped shirts and it was 220. I'll see if I can get another cam tonight just for you, you won't be disappointed. Well worth it imho.

    I bought these at Earnest Sewn about a month ago and have worn them just about every day since. They are the new slim fit jean called the Kyrre. My true size is about a 35 but I bought these in 33 and slept in them a few days and just delt with the embarrassment for about five days. They are about perfect now. I don't own my own camera so I took these quick with a friend's camera. They are actually darker than they appear in these photos:

    PatrickBOOTH, I like your Kyrre's. I had a pair of the Kyrre's in the Maz dark 3d. I like them a lot, but they were to big, so I had to return them.

    I got a blue oxford from shopjake for 90 on sale. None of the knots on the buttons were finished though so they would have all eventually fallen off. I got my mom to fix them for me (I know) and sent an email to BoO. They apologized and told me I could send them the shirt and they would fix it for free. I thanked them for the offer and they sent me a free tie.

    Oh yeah, the shirt is awesome.

    nice! $90 + a free tie (which I've seen for about $80+).

    Wow that's dirt cheap, you came up.

    The fabric is nothing special nor are the patterns but the cut is what you're paying for. It will be in your closet forever unless you gain weight [​IMG]

    The best part is the high cut sides, I can't say enough about them.

    Thanks Bungee Man, I have actually had a few pairs of Earnest Sewn jeans but they seem to stretch like crazy I have a few pairs that are laying around just way too big after a month of wear.

    POS camera died while trying to snap the white oxford. Here's the black stripe one I threw on for a quick pic or two before the battery died.

    Sorry for the shitty pics I know they weren't worth much. There is an older black stripe shirt and a newer one. The newer one I have isn't a solid stripe which looks cheap but a nicer double stripe but you'll see it when you go. He's got a dope black branquinho cardigan I want (450 tho) and the bless knit cap is ridiculously cool.

    I did go to South Willard on Saturday. I was looking for a jacket, but wasn't crazy about anything they had. I took a close look at the BoO shirts - I agree they're cool but I can't accept their pricing. You could get a bespoke shirt for less than they charge, and the fabrics they use are nothing special. I think you could get a Borrelli or Barba shirt from shopthefinest.com and have it tailored for around $150.

    Went to Rolo in SF this weekend and picked up a pair of 5EP Straights, LVC 1947, Jeanshop Rockers,and a J. Lindeberg Belt. There goes my denim budget for awhile, at least until Self Edge opens next month [​IMG]

    I agree, but they will still look like dress shirts. I spend more money on casual clothes than I do on dress clothes which are too stuffy for me. You can get custom tailored jantzen shrits for 50 buck where should you draw the line? I'm not about saving money, I'm about getting exactly the look I want and I don't mind spending that much on something that I like more than a custom "dress" shirt.

    That's an awesome looking shirt. I have a Sisley shirt I picked up for £15 with high cut sides like that... it's tough for me to wear with my SSKs because they're so low-rise. It's a very unique look though.

    I wasn't trying to diss your purchase btw - I really like those shirts. I just find the pricing to be somewhat nonsensical. I saw some of them for over $250, for just a plain button down oxford. I know the cut is pretty slick but I'd like to see some better fabrics and details for that price. That's why I was thinking about a Borrelli or Barba. I know what you mean about "stuffy" dress shirts, but some of the those shirst have great fabrics, collars and cuts. If you get a tailor to shorten them and even fit the body a bit if necessary, you'd have something in a similar genre to the BoO. Just something to consider as another alternative for a cool casual button up shirt.

    I just ordered a Troglodyte Homonculus shirt from the Sur Seize Veingt website. It should be here tomorrow - if the cut is nice I may order one or two more.

    None taken, I hope I didn't come off as being defensive because I like them no matter what. Are they the best shirts ever made, no but they are very unique and the fit is flattering. I hear you on the price point though but there's not much I can do. I'm very interested in the troglodyte shirts as well so be sure to post pics. I love the tailored shirt and jeans/pants look, the foundation for most of my outfits.
