Losing weight & college
Hi all, I’m a 18 year old guy about to head off to my first year of college. For the past four years I went to a preppy highschool where I had to wear a button down every day, so my wardrobe is severely lacking. As such, I’m about to spend a few hundred dollars on a totally new set of clothes. For the most part I’m sticking with a pair of jeans, some joggers, and maybe a pair of black chinos for pants. For tops, I’m planning on going with a few graphic t-shirts and some hoodies, and a bomber jacket for the fall. Headgear wise I’m thinking of grabbing a beanie (I’m growing my hair out so I can put it in a bun but until I can get a nice one going I don’t want anyone seeing my shit bowl cut of a mane).Criticism of all that is pretty welcome, but my main issue is that I’m losing a lot of weight, and am currently on the lower end of an XL t shirt. I leave for college in a month and plan to do as much as I can to lose weight before then, but should I get XL clothes anyways and just go for a too-large look once I’ve lost all the weight, or wait until I’m at my target weight to buy anything?TL;DR, I’m losing a lot of weight but still fit into an XL shirt. Should I stick with XL clothing or wait until I can fit into L?

More and more JCREW suits/jackets are using polyester lining. Write to them to let them know your displeasure.

I really like JCREW due to the fact their 36/38 suits aren’t made for short men (yay 25″ sleeves). In addition to being half-canvassed, JCREW historically uses Bemberg linings, but many of the premium Ludlow jackets I’ve come across recently have had poly or poly blend linings, not Bemberg.I was told that JCREW is relatively responsive to customer feedback (hence their increased offering of 3″ and 3.5″ lapels), so feel free to reach out to them to let them know you want Bemberg, not polyester.help@jcrew.com800 562 0258Messenger (FB): https://www.facebook.com/jcrew/

Underwear options for warm weather

Underwear options for warm weather
Hey Guys,With warm and humid weather, what do you recommend for underwear for warm summer months that is comfortable and cool?My normal cotton knit boxers that I’ve worn for years aren’t cutting it. Those and normal t-shirts seemed to do fine for being comfortable. However, now everything is too warm and uhhh…sticky down there. (Also, there’s a ton of bunching up under khakis I have to wear to the office.)I had a conversation with my dad about this and he told me regular tighty whities/briefs were best…ugh… He had a smirk on his face so I’m not sure if he was serious, but he may have been. Also, not sure if that’s the best option. A buddy recommended something like Under Armour boxer briefs which is fine for working out, just not sure if it would be right for all day since thyy can be too tight or might not be cool enough.What sort of underwear helps you to keep you comfortable and cool in summer or warm and humid climates? I’m open to pretty much anything that might help to be cooler and more comfortable at the office and out and about.Thanks for your help and advice!

Can’t find OCBDs for reasonable amounts, should i get custom twill or poplin?

Can’t find OCBDs for reasonable amounts, should i get custom twill or poplin?
Title. it’s my birthday btwI live in a shite country where fashion is an afterthought. All stores and local brands only sell broadcloth or jacquard or or some obscure weave casual shirts with no interfacing and the ones that do happen to sell oxford cloth shirts sell them for ridiculous amounts for like the most basic and often-used weave on the planet?? Plus I’m skinny and 6’0 so size small has shoulders too small while medium is huge everywhere else.So there’s this online local Proper Cloth-style custom shirt tailoring website that allows you to pick cloth and customise everything else, and they charge very reasonably. 100% cotton guaranteed. Problem is they don’t sell oxford cloth in white or blue (royal oxford for blue though). They have poplin and twill however, but they’ll likely have interfacing which makes the shirt not so casual.So what do I do? Pick twill or poplin (too transparent imo) and get a custom shirt which will likely have stiff interfacing, or splurge out the cash for an OCBD which won’t fit as well but will fit the casual criteria? I’m going to use whatever I get for casual purposes.

Your least favorite ___ for $___: Jeans

Your least favorite ___ for $___: Jeans
Last week’s thread on Deodorant/Antiperspirant | All past threads (_/$ and Building the Basic Bastard) | All Bottoms/u/BespokeDebtor is busy this morning, so I’m posting the thread for him today.IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:THIS POST IS FOR ITEMS THAT YOU HAVE HAD A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH THAT ARE NOT WORTH THE PRICE. IT IS NOT A PLACE FOR CIRCLEJERKING OR HATING AND WILL BE HEAVILY MODERATED. ONE WORD ANSWERS WILL BE REMOVED. YOU MUST GIVE RELEVANT BACKGROUND INFORMATION SUCH AS A PERSONAL STORY, PHOTOS, OR OTHER PROOF OF EXPERIENCEWelcome to the first “Least favorite ___ for $___ thread”. This is an experimental megathread to potentially switch up the patterns. Please give me any relevant feedback in the feedback top level comment below. Today we’ll be talking about jeans. Jeans of any color, fit, or was will do. Please tell us, which pairs of jeans do you think are overpriced, not worth purchasing, or just crappy. Tell us what happened that made you feel that way. Feel free to disagree with each other and provide conflicting anecdotes as all of that is valuable information for fashion consumers. BUT PLEASE KEEP IT CIVIL (as per our literal first rule). We all have different standards and experiences, and hearing other people’s is incredibly valuable even if you disagree. But otherwise, go wild.I am considering doing this and what should we do next week as a megathread every other weekend. Please tell me if you like/dislike that idea.Price Bins:Below $30$30 to $60$60 to $100$100 to $200$200 to $400$400+InspirationWhat should we do next week?Feedback on this megathreadGuidelines for posting here:I’ll post price bins as top level comments. Post condemnations in response to a price bin, as a second level comment. You can also use top level comments for general info, inspo albums, and general questions.Condemnations can be a brand (“I dislike Kiton suits!”) or a strategy (“I refuse to go thrifting for suits!”).Try to stick to one brand/strategy per second-level comment. If you want to condemn both Alden and Carmina, post them separately so people can vote and discuss separately.Include a link in your second-level comment if you can — if not to a purchase page, at least to images.Try to use prices you might realistically pay. That might be MSRP, or it might not — it depends. If you’re in a cheap bin, maybe the best buying strategy is to thrift, or wait for a big sale. If you’re buying from a store like Banana Republic, paying full price is simply incorrect — the only question is whether you’ll get 40% off or 50% off. So factor that in.The bins are in USD, so either use a US price, or convert a non-US price to USD to pick the bin.Condemnations must be at least one sentence.Disagreements are encouraged, but civility is required There is no time limit on this thread, until Reddit stops you from posting and voting. This thread will sit in the sidebar for a long time, and serve as a guide for lots of people, so help them out!
