    Nice fit but if you're going to leave the jeans at that length, pull them down so they stack towards the hem and not all the way up to the knee
    Oh i'm def working on it, i've only worn them 3 actual days so they're still stiff.

    fit on shirt kinda sucks. and when i say kinda i dont mean kinda.

    i'd personally like to see slimmer sleeves. i think it'd look better on you


    Yeah, christ, that shirt is bad. Jeans look good though.

    Fit on shirt isn't perfect, but I don't think is't terrible. Length is fine, just needs something slimmer.

    Looks a tad short, baggy, flaring out at the waist, and hulk arms.

    thats to be expected from j crew, doesnt look bad imo

    size down the shirt imo, or get it tailored. definately to billowy, an iron might help in the mean time though. rest is fine

    He cannot afford to have the shoulders any narrower than they already are.

    I've been having a lot of trouble now that I'm buying and wearing more button downs, with knits and tees I can usually just size down if the length allows or buy slim and the fabric's stretch will sort things out. I tried to size down in j. crew's shirts but I'm 6'3 and a Small just wont cut it in length or in the shoulders. I'm also a little bit reluctant to go for some of the expensive BoO type true slim fit shirts because I'm afraid the shoulders will be too small, I have a couple H&M slim fit shirts that I can hardly get my arms/shoulders into after washing. I've been thinking about picking up a few uniqlo oxfords (hence the sig) because for that price I should be able to afford having them tailored.

    Uniqlo isn't going to work for you dude. I wear small in Uniqlo (well usually) and the length on the arms is too short even on me, and I'm between 5'7"-5'8". Uniqlo was made for the T-rex.

    If you do need a proxy though, feel free to PM me but realize I'm in Korea so it'd cost more in shipping than NYC.

    Aeg, how comfortable are those pants? At least in a few shots they look super fitted through the thighs.

    Well here's how both suits fit if I stand like a robot: [​IMG] They have some elastic fabric in them so they're pretty comfortable actually. I know that the pants especially are too small for me though (in thighs, in waist they are a size too BIG). I don't think it's too noticeable in practice unless I cross my legs or something. The pull on the buttoning point usually isn't that dramatic either but it's obvious that the coat is a little off as well. Overall I'm not really going to bitch about it being that the whole suit cost less than $100 a piece.

    Hrmmmm... I knew the uniqlo's fit like tents but I didn't know they ran short in the arms, now I really don't know where to look for reasonably priced shirts.

    looks good shore. Very mcqueenish [​IMG] my jacket was just h&m. I've worn it in like 3-4 other fits before including farinellis party meetup and socal's apt waywt pic. It's from like a year or two ago though. Almost identical to the cheap monday tor parka which both kinda look like they tried to go for a drkshdw/ro vibe. The smiths shirt was a gift from about 8 years ago since i was a fan (still am). Kinda funny that Otter said my fit was less hipster considering there's nothing more hipster than a smiths shirt. asobu- thanks, man. You should at least post one of your better biz-cas fits

    Details on those tattoos?

    Thanks. I agree the shirt is a bit short. I have a long torso so that happens a lot.

    Great fit.

    Quick question about those tattoos... Were they done by Steve Byrne?

    Thanks. Tattoos by Theo Mindell and Ross Jones.

    biz-cas fits

    I thought this was amusing so I decided to Google it. Lo and behold, the first hit is "Business casual" at Wikipedia. <3 Google.

    I've found the gap shirts aren't bad but I never buy tall sizes, I wear my shirts untucked so a regular size that comes up a little short on my torso is actually a good thing.

    No hate but are you really short or is your ceiling just massive tall?
