Just wondering, could you go into more detail on the fit (pictures would be nice, if you have any)? It's labeled as a classic and relaxed fit, but based on the product pictures the cut doesn't look too generous, it looks about average for the most part. How does the fit compare to a standard shirt from somewhere like Uniqlo?

fits pretty much like the product pics. a bit shorter and wider than say the 50's cut. not too sure about qlo shirts since I don't really have any. here's a fit pic of mine: http://i.imgur.com/uNAw1gw.jpg

I need some input on a noragi I'm ordering pretty soon (next day or two).

I was considering a different fabric on the 'lapel' (don't know a better name) from the rest of the noragi, something with a cool pattern.

Also thinking about an exterior belt instead of interior.

Also thinking about an interior lining to make it a little more wearable in the winter months.

Halp. Images of cool noragi's would help, everything I find is vintage and patchwork which I don't want for this specific noragi. I might get a vintage one somewhere down the line.

Yeah I saw that doing a little searching. He's partially why I'm considering two fabrics, one for the lapel and one for the rest of the garment. I really like the fit on his, mines a tad long and I'm hoping for a similar fit. I really like the idea of a lining on the inside but we'll see how that affects the cost.

Do Visvim FBT's get made in US 12? Do they fit large because of the materials and I can size down?

I want to try a sea salt spray type of hair product because I love how my hair feels and looks after being in the ocean/at the beach. I'm looking for something that has some hold because I have short hair. Does anybody have any specific recommendations? I'm looking at bumble and bumble sea spray (pricy!) and KMS sea salt spray.

Norse jacket that I've been wanting forever is on sale. Might have to get it. One thing I've been wondering though. The material is "high twist Italian 'cavalry twill' cotton."

Fine to wear with black jeans? Material isn't too close, is it? I think it'd be fine but input would be nice.

If you were going to wear black jeans and all white colorway shoes what shirt would you wear?

I always feel really weird wearing white shoes with my black jeans, I don't know if it's just the outfit as a whole or just the new-ness of the shoes.

Navy, blue, gray, white. That's essentially what I wear everyday (excluding during the summer). Navy and black is easily my favorite color combination.

Also, is there anyway to get some off-white shoes bleached completely white? I tried bleach but that didn't work, either my bleach was super old or I did something wrong. Should bleach make these completely white?

I have these

But would love to make them all white and then just paint over the accents or something.

How long does it take APC to ship items out from an online order (US)? I placed an order Tuesday but still haven't received confirmation of it being processed or shipped out. Just wondering since this is the first time I've ordered from them online.

@JewTurk it was $115 from End, already bought it and it's currently sitting in my laundry hamper. Also, a heads up for anyone looking at Our Legacy, End's sale prices on their stuff is cheaper than OL's own sale prices.

I was going to say, looking at more of unionmades prices and they seemed high for a majority of the sale stuff.

Glad you got it!

Suede, rubber sole penny loafers (crepe or not) in the ~$150 range? Any good color would be lovely.

@harmsalmon I thought I saw the counter jacket in XS on end? But I might be wrong, since I can't find an XS anything right now. :(

looks like end only have the ecru colour in xs right now. they restock pretty regularly though.


alternatively you could go for an OG saint james one but they're pretty loose fitting

probably the oldest question here but how do i take better pictures of myself?
@germinal suggested i go outside or "correct the colours" but my only camera is my laptop and live on a college campus in a city and don't have the time and space to stand in front of my computer outside without looking ridiculous and when i do it still comes out looking like
Spoiler:

so how else can i make my shit look less shitty? what do y'all do? i can't be the only one without a dslr or iphone5.
