    Oh man. Uhm... the canadian tuxedo isn't really doing you any justice.
    Do you go outside like that?

    Anyhow I bought that same shirt and agree on the sleeves.
    I'm 6'3" and the sleeves are still on the long end.

    Consider MTM shirts. Shoulder line doesn't line up and sleeves look long. Can you button the shirt comfortably?

    Nice. Can you translate brandzanese and tell me who makes that jacket?

    Edit: thanks, looks sharp.

    Speaking of linen, finally got my linen s/s back from my tailor. So nice to wear a shirt and not sweat, holy shit this fabric is genius.

    I like it. The cap sleeves are short for my taste (prefer them to end at the midpoint of the humerus) but it works with that shirt

    I rolled them up half an inch, I guess my tailor was right when he said they were already short enough. I just need to work on my arms to fill them up then.

    1. I used to think you were jacked, but after seeing Knucks, you've become just average (and I've become positively emaciated).
    2. I really like that fit. You'vemanaged to make a s/s collared button-up shirt actually look stylish.
    3. The shirt is bespoke, right? What is the fabric content - 100% linen?

    Are there any good labels for linen shirts? Browsing through yoox looking for cool summer shirts is just :crazy:

    But aren't you 2% bf?
    Thanks, the shirt is 100% linen from Peter Lee. I haven't really looked around for them because looking for OTR shirts in general is just a waste of time for me. They are one of the few things probably cheaper to buy and tailor than to have made m2m though if you can find them.

    The Lands End shirt did not fit me well, I did give those a go and had to return. I'd definitely need to get those to a tailor as well, but didn't even bother as it was very big. A shirt that seems to fit well-enough is my Bonobos all-american. Not too tight, not too big.
    Jcrew in a large works as well, but looking for nicer shirts.

    Any thoughts on BB slim fit? I hear the slim isn't that slim, but their site measurements leave a lot to be desired :embar:

    Yo Eason I like it, but there's a good chance the shirt would look better untucked-- you know, to keep with that springy summery vibe

    yes, i have - i need to revisit a Sears to try on again, but the ones i had come in were definitely too big. I forget whether the shoulder seams were okay.

    I had my lady measure my shoulder to shoulder (on me) and it came at around 17" but the shirts that work for me need to be at least 19" or maybe even 19.5" because of the traps.

    someone's gonna say "he's not fat! he's just muscular!"

    either way he is too built to look good in most clothes.
