    BoO white oxfords, dont know which to get, can only afford one (and probably need only one). Its going to be my perfect white shirt...dont know whether to go for a splash of color or just an oxford...
    If that's you in the first photo the shirt looks too short at the hip to wear it without an undershirt. I wear BoO shirts and they do not rise that high on me. Not flashing skin at the hip is definitely a requirement for a "perfect white shirt". That shirt fits/looks great otherwise which is a shame. I suggest trying on the long if they have it in stock.

    ^ Looks like a cross between CP Achilles and Stan Smiths.

    What the hell are you on? Those are Rod Laver Vintage, another Adidas classic. If anything, it's CP who heavily style their shoes after Adidas iconic models.

    Re: copping them, yes. A resounding one.

    Go for the basic, white on white. The color can come in somewhere else. +1 on looking for a long size, you don't want to be flashing your hips...

    Oh hey hey guys thats not me! BoO smalls fit perfectly which is why Im debating on which one to get. So far one vote for the contrast stitch and two for regular. Images are from Farnelli and Context respectivly.

    I agree with the first poster that I may want a splash of color not to be dull...however it may be hard and awkward to match...

    Personally, I think the contrast stitching looks like the shirt isn't finished or is a mock-up of some sort, can be good or bad, I'm not a fan of it.

    Why buy that one when you can get an almost identical shirt for about half as much (as their sale price) from Michael J Krell here? Edit: Thought that was USD, not CAD. Either way, MJK is still $40 cheaper...

    ^
    There's some reason for liking the gilded age shirt, one's not necessarily better than another. Maybe he doesn't like the button down collar. Or he prefers the aspects of the denim (such as the more greenish tinge, or the streakiness of the denim). Actually, that's a nice looking shirt...
    I'd be temped to cop, but another chambray isn't on the radar right now.

    i'm not totally interested in buying it but just gauging opinions. i'm not sure mjk shirts will be long enough for me. i can't stand shirts being too short.

    Yea im thinking of the basic white on white more and more. To be honest, the only reason I would want contrast stitch is to "stand out". The White on white is cheaper anyway...
