Who got the best knitwear? Not bothered about brand names but just on quality and value, looked at Howlin who got some nice made in Scotland stuff but anyone got other recommendations? Maybe ones with funky stuff like Alpaca, Yak, Cashmere, Mohair and all that...

So I'm fairly certain I sized right on this Schneider blazer, but it's got these really square shoulders despite being a casual unstructured blazer. I'm assuming it's fine but do the shoulders look off here? I should also adjust the sleeve length right? (my right arm is longer)

Spoiler:

Edit: The pointed shoulder is intentional as it makes the body boxy, but sometimes it doesn't work for me. I think he has in mind a narrow/pointed upper body type.

I'm always on this thread asking you all for help, lol. It's all very appreciated.

I've got another question. I'm looking for mid-rise raw denim below $250. I had APC Petit Standards but eventually really didn't like how low-rise they were, always falling down, and I love how my Patrik Ervell pants fit. What do you suggest? I noticed the Petit New Standard has a higher rise, and I've also taken a look at 3sixteen STX100s (or something) and Imogene + Willie, but it's hard to tell if these are actually mid-rise or just low-rise.

I think that it is not. Cowichan, etc., If you prefer a thick knit, how about you? It is cool there is atmosphere!

For wearing with serious business suits, how big/loose should the shirt collar generally be? As in should there be ample space around your neck? Should the collar look firm and upright? Not sure how else to describe what I'm asking. Does this depend on the collar type? Thanks.

Edit: I have a similar shirt to this one and it's very tight around the neck and the collar is very thin, so that when worn with a tie, the collar kinda pulls upwards a bit and it's obvious that the collar's kind of flimsy:

vs.

This, I know it's a different type of collar, but it's bigger overall and I assume thicker, so that it'll look the same no matter how tight the tie is.

couple of quick questions incoming...

can someone educate me about Weekday quality wise/in general? prices are tempting but never seen/handled any of their stuff irl

and on the flip side, what's the deal with Whistles? always liked the look of their stuff but i think of them as high street so the prices seem pretty ridic

weekday is a nice shopping experience if u enjoy "nice stores which don't alienate you through elitism and price" and web stores which don't overload u with choice. it's nothing to write home about but like most clothes they wont fall to bits before you get bored of them.

whistles is ok but ur right, it all feels nice but at the prices i start wanting to spend my money somewhere else as it often leaves the "premium highstreet experience" bracket and veers into "contemporary i look like u but i'm better than u core".

Whistles stuff always impresses me a lot more when I touch it up in store. Going of feel and fabric texture I'd say a lot of it does actually stand up to the price, especially on sale.

If you're still in brum the whistles shopn in bullring has men's

I've heard many disappointing things about weekday but at least it has some forward looking design.

Very important concept. Belt loops and elasticized waist.

Who else does this? Seen Ann D do it before.

don't listen to him rams, i would never buy knock off clothing. I want to get this

http://www.endclothing.com/gb/nonnative ... 6-046.html

like a good boy who likes japanese brands. I'm just not sure how to size it? Large or medium?

I'll try measuring some of my stuff at home to get an idea but i feel like size 3 with the 23inch p2p is going to give a better fit.

Would look good with baggy pants of cropped or pooly length... but all told, this is the kind of thing that looks cool but is impractical to actually use. Long shirts like that are annoying to sit down with (whether on public transit or in a car); they're annoying to bike with; to access pants pockets you need do an awkward little bend-down to grab the hem and then lift the sides up, which is annoying when you realize just how often you take your phone or wallet from your pockets.

Long shirts are fine while walking (but no better than a normal length shirt), and the only thing for which they are superior to normal length sweatshirts is that they make the wearer look good in photographs while standing.

I do have a long EG over-parka that can be annoying for the earlier-mentioned gripes with the long-shirt... but it at least has external pockets that I can put my phone/wallet in for easy access if I'll be out and about for a while. Most long coats cause fewer problems than long (sweat)shirts because they are typically singlebreasted and can open from the front; you can push them to one side in order to easily access a pocket. In contrast, a sweatshirt like this is just a big tube whose main goal is to block your access to the shit you need. Cmon guys, don't buy products that hinder your ability to just live your life. I've been there but I don't buy stuff like this anymore because I don't want to spend a lot of money on something that makes my life more annoying.

Oh, and when you wear a long sweatshirt like this, I feel you're more or less forced styling-wise to wear a long coat, which makes your already shitty access to pockets worse. Everyone considering long sweatshirts or shirts like this, just say no.

Convinced there's no quality black warp/black weft stretch denim with a mid rise ~11.25", a bit of room in the thigh & the ability to hold their blackness. Any suggestions before I have to start my own company?

I like these UC x Porter bags but does anyone know if Porter does this bag in one of their normal lines? Not really into paying the Undercover premium if I can help it.

Image

Edit: upon further research the backpack design is Undercover's, the collab is Porter Yoshida making the bag for them.

If someone on grailed offers to pay by Venmo, it's almost certainly a scam right? Even though Venmo doesn't offer buyer protection either?
