whats my best bang for buck in the UK if im looking for a raspberry OCBD summer shirt, with shell buttons and at least some shoulder pleating?
>>16373187Why's the fiver red?
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, soIn your case it would be +4/+6/+8". This still means, that +10" is a really loose fit.
anyone got any advice on brooks brothers shirts? i got one that came with shell buttons, but do their cheaper lines like their red fleece lines come with plastic ones?
Is this trad prep or ivy?
>>16373342not what you're looking for but my advice would be to avoid Brooks Brothers. Also, if you're going to pay that much for shirts then buy them from somewhere like J Press or O'Connells
>>16371861I feel like having a fat hog in your pants isn't very /tip/. A true tippy penis should be long and thin. Elegant and refined.
>>16373390brooks brothers are pretty decent in the UK in terms of ebay availability, to the point where they compete with lands end in terms of sale price.
>>16373561Why are there so many new ones on eBay?
>>16371861>Well dressed man>Obvious dick printPatrician's fetish, time to go seduce a local professor.
>>16373673no clue desu. took a peek at lands end and wound up buying a peach coloured sail rigger oxford from them. at £14 ill have it just as a beater shirt even if i dont like it much.
Total beginner hereWhat do I need to look for in a ocbd shirt?How do I know I'm buying a quality shirt and not trash?
>>16373709fit, 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.
How to get an ocbd that fits?I'm a medium size, but have 17inch neck and 42 chest?Never had a nice shirt I could do the neck button up
why is it i can't find any shirts with collar that will actually stay up? it's either tiny little shitty hell knows what not covering your neck at all or high as hell retard-tier bsdm shit.
>>16373905Buy a shirt that fits and have the tummy taken in
>>16373342They're shit except for black fleece>>16373561>>16373700>>16373732Fat faggot who dresses like shit. stop recommending poorfag garbage.>>16373709OCBD Must Haves: (by priority)Proper length Big collar rollUnlined collarPattern matchingMust iron fabricExtras:MOP buttons (usually comes with shirts around $100)Side gussetsSplit yokeHang loop
>>16374379fuck man proper cloth has all those except the collar has a soft lining and more spread than point, I wish I could just send them collar measurements for the shape I want to copyeverything else is either past my budget or won’t fit well because of weird athletic pencil neck proportions
>>16374445dont care retard
>>16373245Lets you know when it's time to drink
Any decent stretchy OCBDs? I work an office job that often requires weird bending, stretching, and reaching
>>16373386It's a pug
>>16374780I apologize for any miscommunication. I meant just the style that the french bulldog is wearing. Thank you for your help
>>16374840Not b8, but I dont exactly frequent this board either. What's wrong with stretchy clothes? Pic related, some very stretchy pants I just picked up. Very comfortable.
>>16374853go back to r/eddit
>>16374379get a tripcode already so i can filter your autism please>>16374853stretch fabrics wear worse.
>>16374853stop being fat
>>16375247Leave the board instead?
Would you buy these machine washable loafers to kick around in?
I don't need to take dress shoes and a shirt with me to a tailor if I just want a jacket and trousers adjusted, right?
>>16375882yes you do
>>16374129Is your caring what is doing it wrong. Skip the trying and pay to get them washed and iron. Hugo Boss is a great choice for standing up collars, just take better care of them.
70/30 wool/poly or cotton/poly for a sock? I've never tried wool but the wicking seems like a meme and cotton has to keep your feet cooler I would assume.
>>16376078i spent £20 a pair on 40/30 merino/poly socks for work and now i dont want a single pair of cotton socks in my wardrobe>>16375417no>>16375306no homolust in /tip/ pls
>>16376096which socks? do they wear fast or unusable in the summer?
>>16375247>He thinks it's one person
>>16374517While this is a neat idea the watch is awful.You'd rather not wear a watch than wear that.
>>16371861Anyone ordered shirts from Spier and Mackay? Go for premium (Essentials, white oxford) or custom fit? Don't know their quality. Should I just go for J Press?t. tallfag
>>16376259teko merino hiker socks
>>16377072>>16376259and no, i walk 15 miles a day in the humid british summer wearing them so youll be fine.
Is this a good fit or do I need to tailor it??I feel like the sleeves and the belly area are a bit too baggy
>>16377933Iron your shirt.
>>16371861Does 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.
>>16377999Should I tailor it as well?
>>16378122If you want to. Do you plan on wearing it tucked in?
>>16377933cant save the fact that its an ugly color, the collar is shit, and that youre overweight
>>16377933Looks amazing king>>16378122No it's perfect
>>16377933>belly area a bit too baggyIs that the shirt or are you just fat? You can only dress around a soft, lazy physique so much.
>>16377999>>16378133>>16378431>>16378466Shut the fuck up and get out of my thread bullies.
>>16378496Constructive criticism isn't bullying, especially when critical opinions are explicitly requested.
>>16378555Can't argue with trips. Carry on
>>16378577Posting a fit in this general?
>>16377007I 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.
>>16378604Spier's my go-to beater oxford, wish they'd restock their uni stripe shirts already
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.
>>16379505Products like this exist:https://www.duluthtrading.com/mens-duluthflex-fire-hose-relaxed-fit-foreman-pants-45704.htmlI 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.
>>16379505What kind of work are you doing?>>16379692>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 brown or khaki pantsPic related. Ivy League fashion was established in the 1950s so dress in the spirit of an engineer or architect from the 1950s.
>>16379505>>16379692I 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.
Start my first semester of grad school at an Ivy next monthHow should I dress?
>>16380201>Kuhl makes pants that kinda work for thisWhich 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.
>>16380206Wear a tiny hat. https://archive.md/OTTHL
>>16379505Filson, literally any high rise heavy cotton chino
>>16380201>some that aren't 100% synthetic or cottonFor work pants, what's left?
>>16380299Wool thick enough for work pants would be cold weather attire.
Anyone have some good wallet recs? I'm tired of the bulk of a trifold I've had for years. I still use cash over plastic, so something that's good for that but with an effort given to make it thin.
>>16380229I forget the name but I saw some that were minimal enough to work.>>16380294Ideally 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.
>>16380416I'll admit that the "hiking" I do is really just leisurely strolls through nature for which I usually wear OG107 fatigue pants, but I have had this bookmarked for a while now https://www.gostwear.com/bill-merino-wool-hunting-outdoor-pants-p-807.html?osCsid=O4tAS7XRwzf-OaLoVNzVA1
>>16380403I use one small binder clip for cards and another for cash.
>>16377933>that short baby collarSleeves are too long and the shirt is too short for my liking.
>>16378604Best bang for buck ocbds i've ever bought are luxire. Otherwise I buy Drakes and Shirtonomy.
>>16377933Can you button the top button? The shirt neck looks a little small, but that could just be the way it photographed.
/tip/ still dead jajahttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tMBo2bA2L_w
>>16380729Looks more >>>/fa/sleaze than /tip/ but that's not always a bad thing. Are the excessively long belt and sloppy pant cuffs a deliberate choice?>https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tMBo2bA2L_wnice
>>16380768yes and yes.
>>16380781I like the tucked belt tail, it looks deliberate and is somewhat evocative of a medieval/Romanesque belt.
>>16380793good pic. i like the look as well, its a simple style choice to appear preppier that isnt in your face like GTH trousers or using a tie for a belt
>>16380824>using a tie for a beltIs that a thing now? I can see that working in some very limited contexts, but only in some very limited contexts.
>>16380873its never been a thing in mainstay culture, looks too peacockish
Is Burberry a black person brand?
>>16377933You can not tailor it. Shoulders are too wide, sleeves to wide, length too short.Just return it and choose some other brand.
>>16381915top row looks alright the bottom row looks like complete clowns
>>16371861i have a couple linen suits and a couple polyester/spandex slacks. colors aside are there any fabric mixing rules? I can't find shit online about it.
>>16371861Where do you get nice leather belts with buckles that are attached with Chicago screws (ideal) or snaps (acceptable) instead of being sewn on (unacceptable)?

Can any tailor bros help me out?I have a pair of cheap khaki pants I've never worn that I was gonna throw out because they're too big but I got to thinking and I've decided that I want to try to turn them into a pair of tapered pleated pants. I can't find any sources online on how to turn regular pants into pleated pants. Can someone point me in the right direction and give me some tips?
>>16383637forgot pic, I want to make them something like this but more tapered
