It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Just go over to the Roseville Galleria and get a shirt at Brooks Brothers. They will have exactly what I described.

Oh, you could wear almost anything, then. I think plain white would be too boring.

question about dress shirts:
what exactly is the most important aspect when it comes to proper fit?

for example, i frequently read that the cuff should be tight enough so that you'd need to unbutton the cuff to take the shirt off. is that really a big deal? short of getting custom-tailored shirts, it's not like you can really control the cuff size of the shirts you buy. it just seems like a trivial part of a properly-fitted shirt.

also, i've read that you should be able to fit no more than two fingers in the collar when the top button is buttoned. personally, i find this to be extremely tight and restricting and i feel like it's ten degrees hotter in the room when my collar is that tight. plus it's kinda hard to button the top button when the collar is that tight. thus, i buy my collars slightly larger (i could probably fit in a 16, but i get 16.5). does this have a noticeable effect on the overall look/fit of my shirts?

Neck size is most important
Then Shoulders and sleeves length
Chest/torso (easily tailored)

Can easily move the buttons on the collar and cuffs as needed

It's important to me. But I've been wearing ties my whole life so I'm used to a fitted collar.

what exactly happens if the neck size is a half inch oversized? i rarely wear a tie, but i'd like my shirt to look correct in the rare cases that i do, if it makes such a big difference

If the collar is unbuttoned, then a half inch won't matter.

But if there's a gap when it's buttoned up, you look like you're wearing dad's shirt.

Maybe the other shirts were too small, or your neck size is right between the two sizes. Either way, it sounds like it's not a problem.

You would be able to tell, I think. Just look in the mirror.

Hair is a bit loud to take you seriously.

Shirt color looks tired.

Other than that I approve.

My Ride: is totaled
Bought two oxford shirts, two jeans, and 6 pairs of socks at uniqlo for $64 including tax and a $0.10 charge for the paper bag (damn hippies in this city)

The shirts fit well enough and won't require any tailoring for the body
The jeans, "japanese engineered denim" pants, are alright ... bought the ones on sale for the grand opening for $9.90 each
One is a dark wash almost exactly like my levis 514's and the other is a sort of olive green
The olive ones don't fit although I grabbed the same size
The dark wash is like just regular jeans while the olive is a little thinner and more like chinos
