    I can now recognize the brand of a shirt, and the season, and recall the price (39.99 before the extra % off). I shop Express too much; it's official.

    @rendiw: The fit is the shirt is GREAT. Much much better than the other one.

    @bjmc: Looks great.



    Sunglasses: H&M (KEYHOLES! And they were only 10 bucks! And they EVEN FOLD)
    Cardigan: H&M (lightweight and it was chilly this morning)
    Shirt: JCrew Factory
    Jeans: Express

    Here is one of my favourite guides: http://magnificentbastard.com/posts/...s-from-esquire
    Elbow area is the operative idea. Above or slightly below is good, depending on the look you want. Anything toward halfway down the forearm though is not good.

    I agree -- above is sometimes a bit aggressive, depending on what you're working with.

    On a personal embarrassment note, I clicked on the link and didn't read the title/intro first... as I scrolled down, I was like "why on EARTH would you want to look like the "below" guys?! Esquire is terribly wrong on this one"... yeah I checked out this week already. Happy 4th!

    Thanks, fellas (Mikey, Vicious, BB), for the compliments. I've been trying to dial-in better "fit" recently, so I really do appreciate the comments. A year ago I would never have bought a pair of alpha khakis (hell, they really looked pretty bad on me then, but still, I wore a more relaxed fit in general then). I've lost a little weight, so I feel more comfortable in a slimmer fit. Comfort and confidence are key, IMO. Otherwise it'll never really jive.

    Anyway, regarding the polo; it's a special version of Original Penguin's "heritage slim fit." I have a few other ones in that line/fit, but this one (and one other exactly like this one but in an off-white hue) are the .... Hmnnnn... Can't recall the cat's name of which they're named. IIRC, he was their main salesman or something back in tha day. I'll check the laundry later and get back here with the deets. Sorry, but I'm sittin' poolside, enjoying a nice tall Broker's and soda. Ahhh..... (Not boasting, just on vacation this week and trying to enjoy some simple downtime, ya'know?)
