Here's to another great too thread my dudes!
>>16349053What does /tippy/ beachwear look like
Why don't we see these kind of details anymore in menswear? Most of the time when I find a piece of clothing the fabric, color, materials are good but it's either improperly made by poor design choices or missing a vital detail. Yes I do sperg out about the little things because they're fucking important.
>>16349358Chino shorts and polo shirt or rolled up OCBD
>>16349395There’s less of a market for that kind of stuff anymore
>>16349053I prefer to wear zero drop (0mm difference in sole thickness from the heel to the toe) shoes with wide toe boxes and thin soles for health reasons. These are the only dress shoes I've been able to find which cater to that specific niche (look carefully: the heel is an illusion, the outsole just has a clever bevel). Which pair looks best, and how would you make them look better? I'm leaning towards buying pic related and putting a bit of a darker color around the seams to create some visual depth on a shoe made of relatively soft, thin leather and pushing the whole shoe towards a more medium brown to suit my tastes. I've never recolored a shoe or messed with shading so I might try to find a similar color shoe at a thrift store for cheap and try the idea on those first. https://carets.com/collections/barefoot-shoes
>>16349358Some Chubbies 7" or 5" shorts and a Vineyard Vines polo with some flip flops
>>16349395Are you talking about the back collar button? They're still around, and while the arc of the hem is nice, I suspect back collar buttons were never widespread. If you're talking about the split yoke, we don't see those because they take more fabric to do properly, and people will buy even improperly made ones because the cache remained even when the purpose was forgotten.
https://www.menswearmusings.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/46656931-9EA1-496E-BCB4-3985ACF3902E.jpegWhich model/colour of barbour is this?
>>16349128mall garbage>>16349395kamakura vintage/BBBF>>16349648kys shill
>>16349742>kamakura vintageSeverely overrated.
>>16349742>kys shillI don't expect anyone else in the thread to want these shoes. They appeal to a niche non-/fa/ demographic and they don't look great, which is why I asked how to make them look better. If you can find me something functionally similar but aesthetically superior I would really appreciate it, just as I would appreciate advice on how to make the best of the clown shoes I posted.
>>16349772>cheaper than chink brothers>on par with Drakeslmao ok pal
>>16349053nice job updating the blogs
>>16349825>on par with DrakesThey certainly are not. The lack of mother of pearl buttons alone sees to that. That said, Kamakura is quite a bit cheaper than Drakes, and Drakes doesn't even do a split yoke, so I'll take back the "severely overrated" bit. That said, custom is the way to go for shirts.
>>16350331but they are MOP, I just checked the 4 shirts I have
>>16350371They very openly publish the fact that they use some kind of natural shell button, not mother of pearl. Maybe learn how to differentiate mother of pearl from other button materials. It's actually really easy.
>>16350373lel they feel the same to the touch as my kiton and charvet shirts, but ok pal
>>16350374They don't feel the same in the one way that actually matters. Your attempt at establishing your authority is doubly hilarious considering Kamakura says on their website that they don't use mother of pearl buttons.
>>16350379lel your oddly hostile. have fun knowing the buttons on both shirts feel and look great!
>>16350386>your oddly hostileSure. You don't have a leg to stand on, but at least you like your non-mop buttons!
>>16350388i thought i said theyre both great?
>>16350396Nope. I got into the conversation to say that Kamakura shirts aren't as nice as Drakes, which they're not. They're also not trying to be, as evidenced by their significantly different price point. The button material became something of a synecdoche for that argument.
>>16350401they look better tham brionis imo, no ugly font. sane with borreli
>>16350424Okay. Construction quality and aesthetic are somewhat divorced.
>>16349358WTF stop posting this I’m a MAN now hate it when you guys bring up my past like

>>16353695Any idea who makes these for them or where to get similar for less?
>>16354266Hit the gym and fix your diet and you should easily be able to fill out a large. If you ate more growing up maybe you wouldn't be a manlet, but at least you can still strive for something close to a classical physique. >>16353695Those look nice Anon, thanks.
>>16354266Lolololololol, what's your suit measurement?
The haters said we couldn’t do it but /tip/ is back suck my dick
>>16354352Very nice, we beat the h8ers. Here's an extreme close up of a shirt.
>>16354244just buy from john smedley>>16354276>fix your diet>largelel>>16354352it still very much sucks
>>16354424>lelTake up something like wrestling, rugby, or crew and quit being a dysgenic skellington. An adult man shouldn't be able to wear a medium shirt as anything other than a tight fitting short sleeved base layer.
>>16354269aquascutum>>16354240not an option given how i got it and the fact that the brands no longer much of a thing, sadlyapparently, taking a jacket up at the skirt is not entirely impossible in some cases, but it needs a skilled tailor to do it. ngl, id pay good money if someone i trusted to refuse a bad job told me they could do it and have it look right
>>16349789Waldviertler has 2 more or less elegant models, might be worth checking out. The soles look better but idk about the toebox
>>16349053where the FUCK can I buy a white cotton pocket square
>>16354273Says made in Italy but not by whom. Suitsupply makes a similar polo for about half the price, made in China. https://suitsupply.com/en-us/men/knitwear/polos
>>16354516>>16354507Thanks Anon! The shoes you shared (bottom row) appear to have a more natural sole shape (top left) than normal modern shoes (top right). My German is really rusty and was never fluent; what's the niche of this brand? Is this kind of sole shape common in German shoes or is it particular to Waldviertler?
>>16354675do foot exercises
>>16354681I probably should, my hammer toe got worse again and I've got bunions creeping in. I used to do a lot of barefoot running (before eventually getting a pair of FiveFingers) and judo but have been slacking off for a while. Have any good resources on foot exercises on hand?
>>16354477Haha this bait is so dumb. Feel free to post measurements.
Do any of you guys face the mental debate of posting fit pics vs letting /tip/ die off?
>>16354827I'd rather post a fit on R9k (and I have). People will tear down any fit posted itt because it's in a prep thread and preppy guys are the antithesis of most posters on this board.
>>16354837For what it's worth, I'm not really preppy I just LARP in trad casual clothes sometimes.
/tip/ is dead hallelujah https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bT78NuRDxR8
So how do you keep your shirts from untucking? I've been using pic related (well actually a different style but who cares) for awhile now, and I like them, but I'm just wondering if there's something that I'm missing.
>>16355040cringe post. awful
>>16355040>Wearing fetish gear under your pants instead of buying pants with a decent rise
>>16355045Yeah. Pic related, peak /tip/.
>>16355040Buy a proper fitting shirt. Usually this means higher quality and more expensive. Cheap shirts are made with big low armholes that cause the whole body of the shirt to move when you move your arms up. Search armscye to learn more.
>>16354675Allen edmonds size EEE fit with Correct Toes for me
>>16354195Black people ruined Ralph Lauren polo
>>16355245lol shut up pleb
>>1635472334" waist, 42" chest, 17" neck, 35"-36" sleeve depending on how I want it to fit. 6'1" ~195lbs, usually around 12% +/- 2% bodyfat unless I'm doing tournaments (~7%) or trying to bulk up (<20%). I can wear a medium v-neck as an undershirt but it doesn't tuck in enough to stay put and the neck rides up too high for my liking so I usually go with a large. Large polo shirts usually work but for anything with long sleeves I trend towards extra large for the sleeve length. I wear 32x32 chinos and jeans. I wrestled in school and still grapple and stay in reasonable shape. Mens sana in corpore sano: please take care of yourself, Mr. Skeletal.
>>16355040Tuck your undershirt (and only your undershirt) into your underwear. Some uniform pants have started using rubberized strips to keep shirts in place, so if you're really having trouble and no one else has workable solutions you could try sewing some into your pants (or have a tailor or seamstress do it).
>>16355151Do you have any issues with your heel slipping? How are you liking the Correct Toes? I just found out about those recently.
>>16354564Did a web search, Tie Bar was the first result. Seems like a good starting point to me.
>>16354195If you're buying from a Japanese company just get a F-91W.
stop posting stupid samefag
>>16355300>samefagThis doesn't mean what you seem to think it means.
>>16355286I have problems with heel slippage. Im not sure if its because its size EEE or because the previous owner of these shoes was overweight and stretched them out. I plan on getting tongue pads and i believe that should fix it.Its been a pain in the ass trying to get new shoes that dont look stupid but can work with correct toes. I cant say ive noticed a huge difference since ive only had them for 2 months but it does feel good to work out those muscles.
>>16355040This board is so fucking funny man.
This has got to be the worst thread in the history of /fa/
>>16355397>tongue padsI didn't know those were a thing. If you're getting them soon, please post results to this thread. >Its been a pain in the ass trying to get new shoes that dont look stupid but can work with correct toes.That's what led me to >>16349648 but in the pictures they still look a little... off.
>>16355040Guys is this /TIP/?
>>16355311He's right you know
guy who got the jacket thats too long here. the photo doesnt do it justice but here it is. im gonna send a localish military tailor an email and ask their thoughts, but i doubt its possible to do it right. its 32" collar to hem and im a 30" so unless he can work magic i think ill have to either sell this on or give it to someone.
>>16353981>>16354240shortening an inch will be absolutely fine, take it to be altered
>>16356336see >>16356329sadly its 2"
>>16356339Shorten it an inch and lengthen yourself an inch.
>>16356329lol are you like 5'8" or something? post a pic in it
>>16356360Check out some of the asian brands. Their cuts are a better fit for smaller frames for obvious reasons. Also they unironically do ivy better than Americans.
>>163563565'10" but 30" collar to hem. short torso maybe? dunno>>16356379baito des
>16356402stay in sprezz loser
>>16356383Different Anon, but the company in your pic has some cool jackets. I like the three-button rolled-lapel aesthetic, makes it look more like an actual sport coat rather than a modern "sport coat" with no sporting utility.
>>16356424... 3 roll 2 ?
>>16356416thats 2" to take it up to the bottom of my ass cheek.
>>16356456Thanks, I didn't remember the term for it and only relatively recently learned it was a thing. I spend more time as a beat-up field jacket guy than a sport jacket guy so the closer the latter is to a cleaned-up version of the former the more I'll probably like it. Any other terms I should know?
>>16356470Are there any good brands that still keep things functional? I've seen some that look pretty sharp but the pockets all suck. I guess what I'm looking for is probably along the lines of a dressier safari jacket or a hunting coat from 50 years ago. How autistic are ascots in this context? >These look better on athletic dudes.Why, in particular, versus other styles on other body types?
>>16356501stop responding to the tripfag

>>16356501just wear it if you like it you fucking faggot.
>>16356424The teba, chore, lazyman, all kinds of military jackets. There's an entire arsenal of jackets that for some reason only asians like to make even though they are american originals. Check out The Anthology and Prologue Hong Kong for more.
>>16356542That's a mexican
>>16356461it was a bargain, couldnt pass it up desu. will see what the tailor says, im finally employed now so i can justify sending it off to a tailor.
>>16356329post pic wearing it. might not be as bad as you think
>>16354675Its their niche. They are actually handmade austrian and claim to fabricate them sustainable and for the long term. Also like you mentioned they set their focus on fit/use over elgance thus causing the "clownish" look like some on this board would say. Typical for their shoes is the flat profilepic are the models i own Jagaflex and Lerche
>>16356621lmao they look like orthopedic shoes. disgusting
>>16356621What are those boots?
>>16356621>>16356641Or rather, w2c said boots?
>>16355272That's odd because I'm 31" waist 42" chest 16" neck with 35" sleeve and 6'3" 170lbs and I find medium fits me in everything but button-up shirts, which half the time are too tight in the shoulders but I mostly have neck-sized shirts anyway. Tees stay tucked just fine for me. Crazy how different people's bodies can be I guess.
>>16356508>A regular jacket covers the fat gut of people, those that close at the chest, if you have a chest it will fill it out and look good. If you are fat, it will stretch below at the stomach and be all sunken in at the chest area and look really bad.That makes sense, thanks. >>16356511Tripfagging is pretty cringe but so is bitching about it. >>16356548That's pretty much what I do, but part of the function of clothing is social signalling so it's reasonable to consider what those signals may be. >>16356554Thanks Anon, these are definitely in line with my interests. I wish Prologue put their clothes on models instead of hangers as I'd like to see how their safari jacket hangs on the body. Do you have any articles on hand talking about the general history of these designs and/or why they're popular in the Orient and not the Occident?
>>16356664Possible explanations:- I reach overhead, climb things, and run a lot regardless of my attire (arguably a lot more than I should, but it makes the urban hellscape more tolerable). - I've got thicker traps than most people (probably including you since my neck is an inch bigger) so my shirts probably sit up higher. - We could have short/long torso skeletal structure relative to each other. - You buy better/longer undershirts.
>>16356708All fair and reasonable points, but with that picture are you trying to suggest you do parkour in your good clothes?
>>16356621>JagaflexI'm seriously considering these for my next pair of boots. Thanks Anon. I'm not sure if I'll go for their dress shoes or not. >>16356629Clown shoes are not as disgusting as your dysgenic cripple feet. Enjoy your future of bunions and knee problems. >>16356641Jaga Flex>>16356659Waldviertler
>>16356719I may have ruined some things that way, but mistakes are how you learn I suppose. As long as you stay cognizant of which techniques and terrain combinations are likely to damage whatever it is you're wearing and carrying at the time it's usually not an issue; e.g. don't do a wall climb-up unless you're willing to risk testing the abrasion resistance of the articles covering your wrist, don't take any falls large enough to necessitate rolling, allow yourself the time and discretion to keep from gouging the leather of your shoes, et cetera.
>>16356697>>16356708>>16356747>t. will never post a fit
>>16356815Don't hurt their feelings anon, they can't help being poor
May not be the best place to ask but does anybody have experience styling/tinting men's eyebrows? Noticed mine were extremely thin.
>>16357440Just don't do anything to them
What kind of sneakers go well with simple chinos and an ocbd?just simple white ones like stan smith?
>>16357440If you do anything I would imagine you would have to do it very, very competently. If it's at all apparent that you've done something with makeup, etc. it would likely just look like you're insecure with thin eyebrows.
>>16355272>6'1 under 200lbsso skinny, stop trying to flex
>>16359315That's actually kind of my point. I hang around enough bodybuilders to know I'm not a big guy 4 u and I'm probably a good 20lbs below my genetic lean maximum and medium shirts are still too small.
>>16359347I own and use bodyfat calipers. How are you measuring? https://scoobysworkshop.com/body-fat-calculator/
>>16359386>DigitalThis can be pretty unreliable from what I've heard, but if you have enough feedback informed by other means then eyeballing it sounds like a reasonable approach. Calipers are ~$14 and easy to use (especially if you make someone else do it) if you're interested in double-checking. >But 6'1" and just under 200lbs with a 42 inch chest would indicate the weight is coming from fat as opposed to muscle. I don't like to bench, but I do like to deadlift, squat, run stairs, hold static squats and practice level changes throughout the day, etc. Pic related is from a few years ago but I doubt much has changed proportionally because I'm still a retard.>Anything below 8 or 9% bodyfat for a male is not possible without gearAnorexia would like a word with you. IIRC, there was a study done years back that found the average high school wrestler at state tournaments was something like 7% bodyfat, which is what they used to inform the lower limit when they started measuring our bodyfat in wrestling and put regulation in place to keep kids from dropping too low. I do agree that these percentages are probably not long term sustainable naturally, which is why I don't like to go into the single digits without a very good reason and never stay there long because it's miserable. >Scooby is a huge gear head lol.His progress pics in the years prior to TRT don't look that suspicious to me, but I'm not a bodybuilder.

>>16354982You look like you bought this for a specific school related event. Looks very unnatural.
Alright lads. I've got money in the bank and not enough clothes to reason myself into buying some suits. The first suit I'm considering is primarily this jacket. The colour is ivory. While I could buy the matching trousers, they are £115 and I don't see them as interesting enough to pay that much for. What I'm looking for is a pair of trousers that will match my ivorytradercore jacket and my (eventual) black wool, suit. To complicate things further, I have in the picture, some vest/ waistcoat ideas. Again, to get my money's worth, the vest will have to go with the trousers and the ivory and black jackets. I don't know much about colour theory but I do want the jacket's aesthetic (read: history) to be preserved. Wat do?
>>16359906Those all look atrocious.
>>16359906Typically, your pants aren't supposed to be interesting, they're supposed to cover your balls and offer a color accent. You want to draw attention towards your face, not your knees.
Probably a question given a thousand times here but how on earth do you start with /tip/?
>>16359938yeah but I meant interesting as in I'm not that interested in them unless they are the only trousers that can go with a white and black jackets. >>16359913okay but what and how? what do you suggest?
>>16359851Just eat till you're fat!>>16359857Looks like you're in the wrong thread
>>16359962OCBDsHeavy Chinos/Flannels/DenimPenny Loafers/BroguesBarbour BedaleShetland SweatersThat’s it
>>16359906Those are all from Darcy Clothing aren't they? Everything they sell is actual LARP clothing(not that there's anything wrong with that) and I think the only things they sell that could be pulled off (outside of roleplay) are the spearpoint shirts and maybe pop-overs. The outfit you put together looks very 19th century and will stand out in a very bad way at any events that actually warrant wearing tailoring. But if you just want it for being a weirdo around town it's alright I suppose.>>16359962Buy OCBD and khakis.
>>16360043 Yes this is all from Darcy clothing.I mean, I do want to be a weirdo. The trousers I've selected are high rise. I think that would be the most dating thing about my clothes. But if the jacket is too bad, then I might just get some trousers (just to try out).What's a pop- over?
>>16360057Actually it's the jacket that's the most dated looking. The very high button stance with short narrow lapels is a style that hasn't been typical for 100 years. The pants look old style too, but high rise full cut pants have been popular in the menswear scene and some even dare to wear them with suspenders so it's not impossible to make it work. Also factor in that if you wear a jacket, vest, or even sweater the waist of your pants are hidden so people won't see the most dated details on those pants.A pop-over is another vintage style that's become a menswear darling of late. The placket only extends down to a little above the waist so the shirt has to be popped over your head to take it on and off. Darcy has a few options, this one they call their cricket shirt.
>>16360075You think a black suit is weird? What mad colour filled festival country do you come from?>>16360091Good points against the jacket. I think I shall pass on it. and what you said about high rise trousers is encouraging too. Ironically, I thought these pop- over shirts were too dated compared to that jacket. kek.
>>16359906lmao that jacket is nasty
>>16360096The shirt is dated looking it's just that it's become trendy among certain people. Also the general consensus is that black suits should only be worn for funerals and charcoal or navy suits are much more versatile.
>>16354982Hilarious how your fit has gotten no attention because there's not much the other anons can make fun of

What are some good short recommendations, with a budget ranging from 30-80 pounds
>>16349053Prep? What are you preping the bull?
These niggers just got delivered. The ones I'm wearing are a size 6.5 (UK) and the other is a 6 which was on sale. The hardest part about breaking in new shoes is the uh 'mouth' of the shoe rubbing against my ankle. Does anyone have any techniques to excel breaking that bit before the shoes rub away my ankle? Also I'd like to know how to spit polish my shoes. I'd like to get a mirror finish on my non- brouges.
>>16363218I’ve heard leaving a damp towel or rag on the edges of the mouth can soften the leather a bit.
>>16363238Hmm you mean wear it around my foot or hang it on the rim to let the moisture soak through before wearing it again?
>>16363288>can't bait to save his life>lankletChecks out.
>>16363241Leave it on the rim
Id on cardigan or cardigan in same colour
>>16363387Jews pls go
>>16363218Wow creasing on the brogues is already looking awful. Are they both Loake?
Stop wearing brogues.
>>16363421Hmm yeah I'm not sure about that crease myself. And yes they are. I have both pairs on shoe trees. Maybe that will address the issue>>16363336Will try that now.>>16363517Fuck off I'm English. And learn how to reply properly
>>16363529Those are rolls not creases. It looks to me like there is too much room in the vamp because they don't fit properly. It could be the last doesn't work with your feet or could be that the size is too big.
>>16363531This is all a bit over my head so I took this photo to help with your diagnosis.My left foots big toe is pointing upward which seems to sharpen the roll. On the right foot, I bunched my toes up as a contrast. Maybe that tells you something?
>>16363580If moving your toes affects the vamp I would say they are too big. Relax your feet and press on the area, also try to pinch the leather. You should be able too feel if there is excess space. Pic related is an example, I couldn't find a picture on with a dress shoe. If it is too big you should be able to exchange them if you haven't worn them outside.
Here are my other pair, they have a similar, less defined roll.
>>16363218>>16363580>>16363621post fit please
>>16363602Followed your instructions. Yeah it feels like my feet could slide around especially around the toe area. My now old pair of shoes were a size 7. I thought I was a 6.5 and I bought the 6s as a gamble because they were on sale. Well looking at the receipt, the brouges have an F fit and the size 6 shoes are a G fit. I don't know much about fittings and stuff but for sure the sale specials seem better.>>16363639I just got cheap, ill fitting clothes right now. I thought id buy good shoes first because my feet were getting all kinds of fucked up by my size 7 shoes.
>>16363647perfect, post fit

Making a trip to j press this weekend. You guys want anything?
What is the go to brand for ocbds with different stripes, a nice roll and sold in collar size preferably? In UK.I already use charles tyrwhitt for plain shirts but they really don’t have much interesting in terms of stripe.
Any ideas where I could get a ""trad"" coat that is a similar silhouette to this? Everything I find myself is *almost* what I want. I like this one except for the collar area. So close yet so far
>>16367147Also this shade of blue seems impossible to find on an oxford
>>16367164Pretty sure I’ve seen that color in Uniqlo
>>16366927Bring me back a sweatshirt king
>>16367164that's the most basic blue for an oxford.

>>16363407jews are honestly based
>>16368092Just because you're poor doesn't mean you can't find stuff in your size in the thrift stores near rich neighborhoods.
how rich is the average ivy/prep user?

>>16368228im decidedly working class myself>>16368225nevermind rich neigbourhoods, go straight to ebay. im trying to be more conservative with what i buy these days but bulk thrift sellers can have some amazing items in for the price. likewise, lots of rich kids have no taste and sell good shit for pocket change.>>16365125easily done, had my brooks brothers pants done by a tailor so shit he cut off the extra fabric and sergered over it rather than unpick a little more fabric and when worn they look plenty good.
>>16368463dont listen to this guy, fat loser who buys licensed ysl garbage from the 80s and calls it an 'amazing item'. literally too poor to get a haircut

never used a sewing machine in my life, is it easy or a stupid idea to try taking in dress shirts / hemming pants / adjusting t shirts?not sure if I'll end up fucking them up instantly
>>16368582You won't, just slowly operate the pedal and learn sewing a straight line on scraps first
>>16368228I do ok for myself>>16368135
buying new basics to fit my wardrobe better, what do you think fits the classic style better? all knitted t-shirts or heavy jersey with a thick neckline?
>>16368736You think any /tip/ icon in the last 70 years ago never owned t-shirts?
>>16368739You don’t need to put thought into tshirts. They just go under other stuff so get the most comfortable one
>>16368463Any good eBay brand suggestions? I normally go through thrift stores by touching all the fabrics as I walk by the racks and shop by my in-person impression of the quality rather than the label.
Most versatile shirts I can buy when starting a wardrobe? Not TIP but menswear I guess. I'm in England so needs to fit and they'll be mostly casual but I'd like them office appropriate if possible.I'm thinking of buying MTM from Proper Cloth, any experiences?

>>16368558wealth is about caste, not the same as money
>>16368699t-shirts can work if you actually have some muscle and you tuck them in. Otherwise if you're going for a tip look don't do it.
What pants do I buy? Am I just supposed to get chinos? From where?I bought these https://www.ae.com/ca/en/p/1120_4425_238 but I don't like them.Looking to get 3 or so pairs of decent quality nice pants that can be dressed up or down.
Can someone help me pick the best two that works equally well dressed up as down?White, Blue, University Stripe, Wide Stripe (pic rel)
Just got back from j press. Bought three shirts. Sorry they didn’t have sweaters in yet and said they won’t come in until late august/early September
>>16368513yeah i fucked up there. also i didnt call it an amazing item. the hammersley navy blazer i got is nice tho, so is the aquascutum jacket.>>16368629yes>>16368808brands are highly region specific, depends on whats in high supply in your area. in general take a look at real high end items and refuse to buy anything of ebay that doesnt look like them down to the lapels and buttons. dont do what i did and buy a bunch of cheap tat at the start because it looked mid range and vaguely resembled what i want and was cheap.also consider posting in sprezzatura, its less shit than tip.
If you wear a t-shirt outside you're larping, low-class, scum.
>>16368793Different anon, but depending on the weather and the context having an exposed t-shirt can be perfectly reasonable. Even if it's under a button-up your collar could be visible. Personally, I like the sportcoat over a t-shirt aesthetic in certain casual contexts.
>>16354266there's no way to be 5'10, fill a large, and remain skinny.
>>16369968is it even possible to be fa with such short legs
>>16368582See>>16368604Practice on leftover scraps, old clothes first.
>>16369470Hahaha please don't come to /sprezz/ you'll get bullied just as much there.
>>16370055The camera angle and cuffed jeans certainly aren't doing him any favors.
>>16349053How do you prefer to carry concealed in /tip/ attire? I've been using a tuckable holster lately but it kind of sucks so I'm shopping around for a better one. Other than that I'll do IWB with some kind of concealment layer.

What do we think of short-sleeved oxfords?
>>16370871I think you should iron and tuck them
>>16370871>HE'S GONNA TAKE YOU BACK TO THE PAST.
how would you incorporate items from this to not look like a toff or farmer?
>>16371115Sell them on eBay then buy real shirts
>>16370871lol this what the average /tip/ poster looks like
>>16370871I like them but they are hard to pull off, especially in white. In this case I think the shirt is too short. Also I wouldn't pair them with dark trousers like this, light chinos or shorts (i'm guessing from the creases that this is a changing room, or straight out of the mail photo which might explain the combination )
>>16371362Meant to say light chinos or shorts only
>>16370871i find wide sleeves tend to make arms look small>>16370144i regularly post in sprez without much issue, when i do post that is
>>16370536i know this feel, trying to save for a house move
>>16371554by posting you actively decrease the quality of the thread
>>16371574i will never lower the quality as much as you do, and at this point i am one of maybe 3 people who actually posts fits of any description

Whats something semi formal to wear at the office?
Is it possible to get a barbour bedale that would size well for layering with a 45"+ chest without being too long on a 5'10 manlet?
>>16370871Iron your shirt; at a minimum, put it up on a hanger when you take a shower and let the steam get rid of some of the wrinkles for you. It's too narrow in the shoulders which causes the sleeves stick out and make your arms look to small for the shirt. Similarly, it looks far too small in the neck. Your posture is awful and makes you look fatter than you are; a basic minimal effort strength training routine should help with both your posture and your body composition and make your shirt look better as a result. If you're going to go with the untucked shirt look you need looser-fitting pants or you need to start doing squats and deadlifts to fill out your legs to visually balance the large loose top garment with the tight and thin bottom garment.
>>16374031Depends entirely on the specific office culture and what's considered "semi formal" within that cultural context.
