I don't mind a spread collar shirt worn without a tie if the collar points stay hidden under a sweater's neck or a jacket's lapels. Again, this is just one guy's opinion and you should go with what you prefer.
    Fair enough. I have toyed with a nicer Henley sweater with tailoring here and there, but mostly wear them casually.



    But I think you’re right on the spread collars with v neck.

    • Just picked up these Bass loafers for $60 and trying to decide whether to keep:

      I'm worried that they look a little chunky. Here's a comparison with a pair of casual oxfords in the same brand: https://i.imgur.com/FDcDwLN.jpg

      Also, they seem to splay out a little when I walk, as so: https://i.imgur.com/8oE1iSf.jpg Does this mean that they're too big? I tried going down half a size but that was a little too tight.

      Thanks in advance.

        Looks good to me. The splaying out is happening because you're in that pose you're bending the shoe close to the heel and the leather needs to flex in order to accomplish that motion. In the pictures where you're standing still, I don't see any bowing out at all, so I think it's okay.

          +1 they fit fine.

          I like the look and don’t feel that they are cluncky. Not quite as sleek as some European lasts, but not as tall or round as most AE’s.

          • Thanks guys. Never owned loafers before, so wasn't sure. Think I'm going to keep these.

              Where did you find them for 60?

              • I tried them on (at DSW IIRC) to be sure, but was tracking the price on Amazon and it randomly dropped from $80 to $62 recently: https://www.amazon.com/G-H-Bass-Co-C...dp/B0199V7ELI/

                • One more pair of shoes (in case you can't tell, I'm trying to upgrade my wardrobe after years of wearing the same square-toed rubber-soled monstrosities every day).

                  Saw these on sale for $50 at Macy's. I realize the price tag means they're probably not great quality, but I've been meaning to try out monks for a while and figured that starting with a cheap pair makes more sense than dropping $200 and then realizing I don't like the style.

                  Not sure if they look a little too cheap (and blocky) though. As always, feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

                    Look good to me. Shoe trees will help them last longer if you don't already have some.

                    • Apparently I'm full of questions these days. Snagged the two J Crew "un" suits when they were at 30% off recently, trying to decide whether to keep both/either. My main concern is that the jacket might be slightly short. (Also, my home office needs some work)




                      I'm also curious whether people think that the gray ("Deep Water") or blue (brighter than it appears in picture above) looks better/is more versatile.

                      Thanks as always.

                      • Im getting married in August and ordered some suits to try on from Suit Supply. Which fit is better?

                          I think the fit is okay. Jacket is a bit short, but on your slimmer frame it is okay. You need to get the pants hemmed.

                            That is tough. Have you tried a 40L? The sleeves are both pretty short and I can't really tell too much of a difference. Any back shots?

                            • Is this jacket too big, or am I over-thinking it? It's a J crew linen sportcoat in 38S. I have another J crew sportcoat in wool in the same size that fits a little snugger. Should I size down because of the material? Mind you I don't think my chest will fit a 36S.

                              • Looks right to me. Needs sleeves shortened but otherwise spot on.
