Ladies: bossman and architechno have just admitted to wearing boxers.

I think my concentration for the day is shot.

puddles, if you're not going to wear pants but do intend to wear an undergarment at least please go for the Classic Boxers instead of the Briefs. Thank you.

liberty bell, personally i can't stand boxers, they're hideous in my opinion and not well-suited to a fashionista such as myself. besides, as soon as i'm out of the office i'm going "commando" the rest of the day

most of the companies listed try to make a guy look like a metrosexual cowboy, which is fairly oxymoron. skip the metro and go for the real deal. and forget the architect glasses. for some reason architects go out of their way to use their glasses to protray themselves as trekkies or the cast of revenge of the nerds

I have a hard time finding shirts that fit me (27" arms). I keep putting my elbows through shirts because the sleeves aren't long enough. So i'm giving a website called Proper Cloth a try because it lets you put specific dimensions into it rather than getting something as wide as a camping tent just because I have long arms. It may suck, but I like the novelty of picking fabrics / collar / cuff styles & I figured I'd give it a go rather than sew patches onto every shirt.

Edit: I just saw how old this thread was.

Let us know how it comes out (also long arms)... Joseph A Bank custom fit shirts back in the day before they were bought out and the material was better... those lasted me my first decade. I've now replaced them twice with stuff from Joseph.... and then walmart.... both were cheaply made, lasted about a year, and didn't fit right, but walmart at least didn't take my entire paycheck

I was on a Brooks Brother's kick for a long time, but only when the shirts were on sale or by 4 for $200 kind of stuff. But I just keep putting my elbow through them. The downside of these Proper Cloth shirts they are indeed expensive, but it depends on the cloth you pick. No more expensive than going to a Nordstrom's. But if your first shirt doesn't fit they do a virtual consultation & then remake it for free. So my hope is that I can get it dialed in for the future & they actually last.

Since I hate shopping and pushy store clerks, I am so glad to have been forced to shop online only this pandemic...mostly use Zalando (German online retailer) and Zara now.

I buy clothes when I visit Turkey. They fabricate some of the best quality ready-to-wear brands. Hi-quality fabrics basically set the value of what you are buying. I like buying Mavi jeans made from good quality Turkish denim. Everything is a quarter of the price that you'd pay here. 
Except, VAKKO brand is pricy but of great quality (divide the shown price by 8 for Turkish lira to US dollar.) Their headquarters designed by REX, one of their best buildings. For everyday stuff, sometimes I find clothing at H&M and Uniqlo, their full cuts fit me well. After wearing them a couple of times they become a little scruffy to my liking. I used to accept hand-me-downs from my wife's wardrobe of her men's clothing-wearing days such as Commes de Garcons shirts, Paul Smith overcoats, etc. As you get older your body starts to sag and they don't fit me anymore. I have to shop for everything myself as most architects do. I am very picky of certain details most other people don't care (Ie: I have never owned pleated pants, wearing workout clothes in public, even short pants aren't my thing.) My clothing has to feel comfortable and well worn without being baggy and torn. Whatever I wear, I usually wear over a black or white V-neck t-shirt from Target...
I know this is a very bourgeois and material post. Thanks for reading;)))

they have a self checkout now that just 'reads' everything in your basket and adds it up, you don't even need to scan it. all they need now is a robot to dehanger and fold them for me.
