sheeez, are you serious? just tell me how many pages you wanna go over this.
Victor Elfo - the fit was awesome, the hat was awesome and it totally makes the outfit. Don't listen to idiots. It will take time for you to figure out who you should actually listen to and whose advice you should discard without even reading, so please stick around and keep posting cool outfits. If you find this thread to be a bit dull, well that's because it is, so maybe take a look at SW&D's WAYWT discussion thread for a better home. Cheers
Yes, they fit well; they come a little bigger, and shrink after a few washes (meant to, I presume). The problems are: Sleeves--at least, on the slim fits--are a little tight at the cuff, and the collar points tend to bend inwards, if you don't iron them slightly outwards. Material is nice; I might even try the tailored fit next time!
Interesting. I want to drop a bit of money on them eventually, so thanks, bro.
a joo w/o a shirtmaker. not serious?
Poor Joo, from pricey Sydney.
Thanks for the comments and for the advice, gld.
pulling your leg, mate
vienna is waiting for you...
Same again. Awaiting a nicer (better buckle) woven belt. I'm thinking I could even go to the 'tailored' Charles Tyrwhitt fit; this shirt looks less baggy IRL.
Curious to know how others feel about the sleeves here. I only roll my sleeves up this far when I'm reaching under the hood or into the bowels of a Xerox machine. When I roll 'em up just to feel casual, I keep the cuffs below the elbows. Perhaps for that reason, instead of looking relaxed here, Alex looks like he just finished washing the dishes and is awaiting further instructions. Might also be the "at attention" pose.
not your day with me poor alex.
I roll them up above the elbow but not white business dress shirts like that. And if they're rolled up it's weird that they're so neat.
Those plain weave shirts just look bad without a jacket.
Invest in some casual shirts. Probably button-down collar too.
Oh dear, fritzl. Yes, I need some linen/patchwork shirts! I can't not roll them past the elbow, as they, either, look horrible because of the bend, or annoy the fuck out of me!
Interesting that you would not only wear the same ill-conceived outfit 2 days in a row, but that you would post pictures of it both times.
