To the anon who asked about extra width in shirts: recently I said that +2" is slim, +3" is normal and +4" is wide/loose.
Now that I made a shirt I have to add that this additional width applies to half the chest measurement, so
In your case it would be +4/+6/+8". This still means, that +10" is a really loose fit.

Total beginner here
What do I need to look for in a ocbd shirt?
How do I know I'm buying a quality shirt and not trash?
>>
>>16373709
fit, fabric quality, comfort first and foremost. you wont wanna wear a shirt if it restricts you too much.

quality wise, collar length is the first thing to look for. the first place shit shirts will cheap out is on the collar and you want one long enough to have a nice loop at the top so you can wear it with a tie if you want. second place to look at is the length, cheap shirts will be shorter than is ideal and will threaten to become untucked. third place is the armpit, too large a gap for your arm will make the shirt fit like shit, move like shit on you, and look like shit.

you dont need to spend a lot for a decent OCBD. lands end have frequent sales and i just bought a peach coloured one for £14. dont expect a canvassed collar or shell buttons or anything amazing, but for the money theyre not bad starter shirts.

Does anyone here have historical reference on which watches, in general style or specific make or model, would have been worn with the original Ivy League style of the 1950s? How about during its revival as the preppy style of the 1980s? Ivy League fashion was largely established by veterans going to school on the GI Bill, so I would imagine a lot of crossover between the relatively small men's watches in the 1930s-1940s (pic related is WWII soldiers synchronizing their watches) and Ivy League watches in the 1950s.

I have a few oxfords from Spier(both regular and lightweight) as well as a shirt from J. Press, though it's broadcloth so I can't give a fair comparison. I quite like Spier, especially for the money. The fabric is nice albeit a little stiff and the collar roll is great. If you get a shirt with stripes they do a great job matching them up across panels. My only gripe is the buttons are tough to do and undo, they should either make the buttonholes a little larger or use thinner buttons. With a full range of fits, neck sizes, and sleeve lengths I don't think you'll need custom unless you have particularly unusual proportions. As for J. Press, the buttons are perfectly smooth and the construction might be a little better but most of the extra cost is the US manufacturing which may or may not matter to you. So up to you if you want a US made Ivy classic or what might be the best bang for your buck.

As someone new to all this shit, are there pants that can look at least semi-formal and still be used for manual labor? Looking for an alternative to jeans.
>>
>>16379505
Products like this exist:
https://www.duluthtrading.com/mens-duluthflex-fire-hose-relaxed-fit-foreman-pants-45704.html
I own a pair and they're not quite as "relaxed fit" as I'd like but they're still fairly okay thanks to the 3% spandex in the otherwise cotton fabric--I can do an ass-to-grass squat in them with no problem (pic related), they're just tight and tend to bunch up more at the crotch than I find acceptable. They don't look out of place with a nice shirt and navy sportcoat, nor do they look out of place with some of the more casual shirts and utilitarian coats I wear. I'll probably try some other pants by some other manufacturers before I buy another pair of these, but there's a spectrum of tradeoffs between utilitarian construction with rugged fabrics and fashionable construction with fine fabrics and I haven't quite decided exactly where on that spectrum my next pants should be.

For manual labor, have a solid leather belt that matches your well-maintained boots, tuck in your button-up or polo shirt, and wear a decent pair of fairly uncomplicated (i.e., avoid too many things like hammer loops, cargo pockets, and abrasion panels unless they make sense for the work you do) brown or khaki pants from Carhartt or Dickies or whatever other work brand you like and anyone who wanders onto the work site will think you're in charge of something. If you get wet a lot I might suggest going to a webbing or other synthetic belt in a similar color to your boots instead of leather as leather belts stretch a lot when wet and can get permanently ruined that way. Pay attention to how the guys who go between the office and the field (e.g. the foreman and superintendent) dress themselves and take your cues from that, keeping in mind that your clothes are going to take more of a beating than theirs and should be adjusted accordingly.

I second this line of inquiry. I've been trying to find something like this, /tip/ appropriate pants that are suitable or work/hiking/ect. Kuhl makes pants that kinda work for this, but I'd prefer to find some that aren't 100% synthetic or cotton.

Which ones are you considering? I was looking at their The Law pants (pic related) but I think the external zipper pocket and riveted slash pockets kind of ruins the design for /tip/. Slax looks promising but, having never tried the fit of their products, I'm hesitant to order something with the "klassic fit" of Slax instead of the "full fit" of The Law.

Ideally a wool synthetic blend. There are plenty of companies making wool-nylon blend clothes now, and it used it used to be a popular material for flannels before they got generally cheaper. It's odd noone makes good work/hike/casual pants from it currently.
