    It looks pretty good for off the rack, looks a little short though...but that’s personal preference I guess.

    JCrew unconstructed blazer?

    Official "How Does This Fit?" Thread

    Thanks to this site, I have purchased more button downs, but I still like a casual shirt with a regular collar.

    Question – what do you guys think about the collar sticking out of a V-neck or Henley sweater like this? I remember the V-neck thing being a thing in high school but it has been a long time.

    I have been buying SS Napoli’s but in my line of work i beat up my suits very quickly and my wife put a stop to SS pricing. So,, i found this Thompson Flex Wool. How does it fit? I think the shoulders are too big but the 42R was just too small. I know it needs sleeves taken in and the body taken in but what do we think about the shoulders? Thoughts?

    For me a henley is like a long sleeve t-shirt with buttons. I've actually never seen anyone where it like this, to be honest. I personally also don't like my collar points flaring out, hense the reason that button down collars are often suggested for shirts not worn with a tie. 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.
