    @JC i hit buy but I forgot I hadn't logged into Groupon. I was re-directed to the deal page and i happened to read the fine print. I'm glad I did.


    I am ordering that pink ginham shirt I took a screenshot of. I just need to figure out a tie that I need

      Yeah, you got me thinking about the pink gingham too. I've actually been looking for a pink gingham but didn't see one over there because I only looked at the dress shirts.

            Allen - none others that I've found. But as I've noted before with you, the Express Small Tall is technically 14.5/34 but only available in black and white.

              My gripe with most Lands End Canvas shirts is that they have a small/wrinkly collar.

                OP, are you anywhere near NYC? The Uniqlo ones for $30 are pretty nice.

                  @ zerostyle - Dunno about smallness, but you can avoid the collar wrinkles by unbuttoning the collar when washing and drying. I've noticed the same is true for all button-down collars.

                    @Zero, Wish I was. Half of my wardrobe would probably come from Uniqlo.

                      Half of my wardrobe used to be Uniqlo and Mac-House (another Japanese retailer); styling is a bit bland and most of the stuff wore out after two or three years though. The other thing was Uniqlo is so ubiquitous that everyone on the street in Japan knew you were wearing Uniqlo. I stopped wearing one particular turtleneck because I got on the train once and saw there were three other people in the train car wearing the same exact color and pattern as me. ('o')


                      The good thing is they were designed for the typical Japanese physique and therefore slim. I never tried any of their button-down shirts, but I imagine it would be the same.

                        @Lance. The LEC canvas oxfords are on sale and I am torn between a S and a M. I'm 5'9 170, athletic build. Any suggestions on size?

                          Have a perfect-fitting shirt now? You could measure the chest/waist of it and either call customer service to find out which size it matches up with or post here for someone to compare to their LEC OCBD.

                            @Jeremy: I'm 5'9/160, and wear a small. That said, it's -very- slim on me. My guess is that you'll probably have to go up to a medium.

                              Jeremy, I would say a medium. I'm 5'10" and about 160ish, the small would fit me I'm sure but I get mediums because they fit better in the shoulders, sleeve length, and allows me to button the top button without choking myself.

                                I'm kind of interested in the LEC Heritage Oxford. What do you guys think about the red?
