seems like everyone is selling flannels right now. visvim, uniform experiment, nonnative, junya if you want super expensive japanese stuff. apc, supreme, gitman at a lower price.

i'm probably just going to try my luck and grab some vintage pendletons on ebay or etsy.

yeah, I have the wingtip version in sand suede. They're ok, but i bought them a size too big and the toe has no structure, which makes them look a bit weird on my feet. i wear them as beaters now so they're horribly grease-stained and discoloured. that said, i would probably re-buy them if i ever came across them (although i'm not actively searching). sand suede is such a great colour for derbies

Mine are sand suede too, it's so easy to wear with almost everything.

Can't imagine you in a wingtip for some reason germ

Saw Élodie Ouédraogo (Belgian olympic sprinter and apparently a fashion icon) in town yesterday evening when going out for ice cream and tango. She was wearing what I'm certain was a stunning Margiela long white shirt-dress.

Yeah, I wanted to say "that's a margiela skirt dress yo!" to my girlfriend but she was talking about something else. Afterwards she told me who the woman we passed was and I commented that I'd indeed noticed the skirt-dress.

Apparently Élodie "shocked" belgian frugal sensibility by appearing on a talk show in €2000 shoes but is a bit of a fashion icon right now.

I ordered my first Brooks Brothers OCBD. I hope this collar roll is all it's hyped up to be.

Dear cameron,

Thank you for your recent correspondence and interest in these two items.

The jacket is excellent looking - great shape to it, wonderful pockets, nice looking buttons, material looks great, etc. The no-buttons-on-sleeves thing sounds fun for such a relaxed piece.

Collar and lapels seem to be sitting weirdly in this picture with the top button done up but I can't imagine you wanting the top button done up usually and it's probably just the picture.

If the price is right I give my accordance.

The collar of that shirt on the other hand is almost everything I don't like in a dress shirt collar. It's tiny, stiff and thick like a priest in a playground. There's no real room for a non-thin material tie knot and no chance of it reaching the lapels of any jacket. Done up it'll just sit there lifelessly looking cheap. No way to tell how it'll look unbuttoned but the stiffness of the collar suggests it'll probably form a rigid triangle shape rather than flare or lie more naturally. It's got no roll and no interesting shape. It reminds me of the collars most cheap mall brands put on their shirts honestly.

The shirt probably has some super special fabric that makes it interesting but as a regular shirt it does not look worth the money.

I offer my humble concerns regarding this piece.

Yours sincerely,
Syeknom

I don't really have the personal experience with good dress shirts to give such a list - it's still a subject I need to resolve for myself honestly. I have a really crappy shirt selection right now.

I am a real sucker for tall, strongly arched, semi-spread Italian collars like styleforum member spoopoker's Finamore shirts (on deep sale at shop the finest right now,I really should put the effort in to working out measurements):

A collar like that, thick MoP buttons, a really slim fit and a luxurious cotton would make me a happy man.

Dress shirt non buttondown collars are something you could go mad thinking about.

And if you want the collar to be wearable both with and without a tie you'll go nuts.

Probably one of those things where you want to just find a brand you like and stick with it forever. Syek should maybe visit emmett when he's dans londres though, just to see. I have the suspicion that their stuff doesn't in any way match up to the old italian houses but they go on sale regularly so might be worth a punt.

I'll add it to me list bela, good quality are they?

When I buy dress shirts they're to wear with a tie and casual shirts without, so I don't have to navigate that horrific mine field of whether it'll look good both with and without (most won't).

For the benefit of this thread I spent my lunch break going into town and tried on a Finamore white shirt. Easily the most magical shirt I've ever seen in person. Fabric was gorgeous, collar was perfect, buttons were a joy and the hand stitching was really evident. Great slim fit too, only the sleeves were a little long on me and the smallest collar size (15") was a little loose. Best bit were the shoulders. They're cut slightly short (seam hitting before your shoulder bone) and then the sleeve is kinda pleated into it and puffs up and out a little as it drapes over the shoulder. Really comfortable and free moving.

You can see how it attaches here:

Image

I will absolutely place these in the imaginary top 5 white dress shirts category tpaine, absolutely. Must try to pick up one in the future.

Never really thought about it this way but it's true. Almost all my shirt collars are button downs, I don't have many proper dress shirts since I need to get them MTM or heavily altered.

Lately I've really been into this invisible tie look, but I have a hard time pulling it off. I've been thinking about getting a white point collar shirt made to try it out.

Tight, long point collars, slim waist and a hidden placket would look so good for that. Van Noten does that look often on the runway (not usually with hidden plackets though).

I dunno if they're good quality. I like the two I own. They're the only shirt maker that I have an interest in other than COS due to price/performance considerations.

All my favorite ocbds can be replaced on eBay at 25 bucks a pop. Very tempting.

did you get the regular, slim or extra slim?

i find the slim fit is just a touch too slim and the regular is occasionally too baggy. i might try sizing up on a slim fit next time.

Apparently they just opened a Jil Sander Navy store in London. Didn't think JS navy would get its own store but fair enough.

http://blog.joseph-fashion.com/jil-sander-navy/

Also, does anyone know anything about that brand "Joseph" ? I heard they do menswear but don't see anything for sale on their site.

This post is basically for Germinal.
