Cos doesnt fit me either, on the top in my case. 44 is too tight in the chest and 46 is too big on the shoulders

Where can I find premium plain T-shirts that fit similarly to the Hanes crew T-shirts?

Hmm.. I find that slouchy blazers a la Yohji works well with t-shirts.

Agreed with Rosenrot, with the addition that very structured blazers can also work. Not in the sense of regular blazer with lots of shoulder padding but more in the line of Plokhov style architectural jackets with all right angles.

Sorry for post spamming, just want some feedback.

got this Siki Im tunic off SF:

Image

it fits a lil slim (i got a big ass from weight lifting) and my gf isn't a fan of my egg/manskirt look. im thinking of altering it (having the hem brought up and/or creating side or back slit) i actually bought it because it was originally had very high side slits and it would look more like a cool flap. trying it on i realize it's much more slinky, which is odd for me.

thoughts? is it sacrilege to alter something like this, esp given Siki Im's reputation as someone who is very exacting with his designs?



also, i'll raise this up in random fashion thoughts, but if this piece is indicative of Mr. Im's work i have some creative criticism for him.

Does anyone here have any experience with MA_Julius?

Sadly I'm a guy and not really tiny (like 84 cm waist) and the size available is a 1...
could I size down that much since the harem pants are baggy in nature or should I let this one go?

Teck, I think you'll never be able to sell it if you do some alterations. Which should be the main concern if you're not crazy about the shirt/dress thing.

What's the sizing like on Dana Lee stock chinos? I'm a 29 in most things, but I'm not sure Dana Lee offers that size. Would I be a 28? 30?

dana lee pants fit a little large, so you would probably be 28

From my experience/research MA_Julius fits more or less like regular _Julius. Size 1 is probably somewhere between a 28-30 waist (I know there's some size variation, but not sure by how much).

Any idea where I can get a flannel like this? This one is perfect but I could only find it in one place and the seller refuses to ship to Canada.

Balmacaan coat vs soutien collar coat vs mackintosh coat. Can't figure out for the life of me what the difference is. Anyone care to enlighten me?

mackintosh is a company whose name has become a synecdoche for waterproof Aberdeen coats in the balmacaan style (single breasted, prussian collar, usually but not necessarily raglan). soutien collar seems to be nanamica's own nomenclature, presumably it has a reinforced collar

What's the deal with AF1 07s? Is that the model to get, or is there a more basic, 'core' model

af1 07's were a new af1 introduction due to the 25th anniversary of the the og af1s. af1 07s are the ones you see mostly nowadays, but you want to speak of a 'core' model the af1 82 (og af1 model) might be what you are talking about. the af1 07 though is model you'll probably easiest find people wearing.

COS also do them as well but I don't remember where in the world you're at.

Planning to get luxire to make me one at some point.

On that note, does anyone know where to get some sort of collarless flannel/check shirt? I like this Lad Musician one but I couldn't ever find it in my size. I might just get one from uniqlo and cut the collar off or something, although I'm not too sure how that would work.

Cut is probably nowhere near where you'd want it to be, but hey, it could be something if you sized down enough.
