    Face blurred less for anonymity than for severe case of "stupid WAYWT face"

    Not the best picture, but you get the idea:

    Shirt: Brooks Brothers bengal stipe
    Pants: J. Crew
    Shoes: Allen Edmonds

    I think two of the things that throw off JapanAlex's fits are his arms and shoulders. He has very squared shoulders, and extremely long forearms based on the pictures I've seen from him. Because of the shoulders, the sleeves pull and look very short exposing more arm. In which case makes them look even longer, exaggerating the effect. So the end result is that the short sleeve shirts aren't very flattering for his build up top.

    JA, I'd like to see some long sleeve button-down shirts with the sleeves rolled up a couple times to help with the long arms. I think this might help your fits considerably.

    Thank you (Jebus, that is constructive crit), I do wear shirts a lot with casual fits; I will next time. :) Like you astutely noticed, I have very long limbs; it's irritating to deal with at times. :mad:

    My pleasure. I'm glad this helped.


    Haha, thanks man. I've used it forever. Being in Sales and Customer Service for over 20 years, this made a perfect fit.

    I haven't added much to this thread, but I wanted to clarify that this could be used in the sense of "I can hand you that beer" rather than "I'll pay for that beer." If the waitress comes to your table, you may say to your friend in English "I'll get that" meaning to pay for it. However, this is more of a "I'll bring you one" or "I'll hand one to you." If you want to say that you'd buy your friend's beer, you'd say "das bezahle ich"
