      BenR, if I knew you better I'd offer to buy you a drink. I drove through Montana yesterday and I'm up by Spokane now.

        Haha, that's ok, I already bummed a free watch from you so we'll call it good. :-)


        I hope it wasn't too balls-hot for you yesterday. 80┬░F in June is pretty unusual for us, let alone high 90s. Thank goodness I work in an air-conditioned office and live in a basement. Even so, I am changing out of these long sleeves and into shorts and t-shirt the instant I get home.

            @nicholascrawford Love the tie and the jacket.

              Thanks. I need silk pocket squares fairly desperately. But that's after I fix my tie crisis. =P


              In case you ever order an Indochino suit during one of their "free accessories sale" periods, you could pop this in your shopping cart until then: http://www.indochino.com/product/Spot-On-Navy-Tie

                    I passed up on that tie one day when I was in Target. Regretting that now.

                      @Jordan lol why regret? You can still get it! http://www.target.com/p/merona-men-s...t/-/A-13930104

                        @Acoustic: it could be just the way that you're sitting or you could be a bit bent over, but your tie appears to be quite long in that picture. Do you typically wear it well below your belt?

                        Comment




                          I regret it cause it's nice, especially for the price.


                          Going to have to go back for one.

                            @ Kenneth: Oh I'm hunching over a bit in that pic!

                              @acoustic n Nicholas. Really like it


                              @Nicholas I think I might have gotten the same shirt a few days ago too lol red n blue check?. I may return it though. I picked up a small and it fits great but Im worried about shrinkage. If it does it will definitely be too small. Do you usually size up on express fitted shirts?

                              Comment




                                Too small/short in the sleeves? That's usually my problem with Express since I'm 6'1" and wear a small. I don't encounter much in the way of shrinkage really - I'd stick to cold water washes and low/no heat drying or getting them professionally laundered.


                                When something is too big, I'll wash in hot water and dry at high heat! But I would say their shirt sizing is pretty true, except somewhat variable outside of the 1MX shirts. This shirt, for example, was an inch longer in the sleeves than every other small on the rack. Naturally, I tried it on and it fit! I can only wear the 1MX shirts in the S Tall size.
