    I know a few female IG influencers who never buy stuff except probably tampons. They get all the free clothes and even snacks to last years not counting the cash income from the brands.

    I cannot imagine a true SF member being insensible to the intense poetry created by your posts. You tend to write like you dress. :-D

    Forgive the unfiltered ravings as the side effect of forum anonymity. Wife's friends and friends' wives. Alas I learnt too late that it's actually cheaper to have a model as a wife.

    Interesting how many people insist that shoulder slope is a tailoring/body defect (not really about the shoulders, traps are part of the back) when it's also a mark of strength/achievement in the gym, climbing wall or wherever.

    I've never really understood why people see very square or sloped traps as good or bad. Asymmetric shoulders (very common in men btw) can and should be 'corrected' by tailors on the other hand.

    It’s not that square or sloped shoulders are good or bad, it’s that when they are extreme they deviate from the middling proportions that tailoring tends to effect since Brummel’s day. In some ways we are still riding the momentum of classical proportion in clothing. At least in the West. And so people still advise that clothing should make you look fit but not too fit. Tall but not too tall. Well proportioned and not extreme.

    I switched to V-necks 4-5 years ago because of this but now my shirts, Spier and Mackay, have a lower 2nd button so my V-necks show. Do you know of any lower V-neck under shirts? I could go without but I am already cold sitting in an office all day.

    I buy the uniqlo undershirts. Very deep V and not too thick.

    I wore V-necks for the same reasons for about as long as you and ran into a similar issue. But this past year, I've simply stopped wearing undershirts unless I am wearing a closed neck shirt. I have actually been really happy with the change, personally.

    Agreed, I didn’t have a clean v-neck, was a bit chilly so I opted for the t-shirt

    Quite cold today in Mexico, so perfect for this oxford and jacket.
