you know i always give you good information and help

it's all good; i dont harbor any hard feelings over it. it's just that you often like to run up on people armed with your newfound style knowledge and practically interrogate them in order to pick apart each and every mistake they make. i could see how it might rub some people the wrong way.

i'm just trying to see whether you actually know something or if you just buy for the label
Gucci does put out quality stuff (depending on the line) ... but i'd say more people buy it for the name without knowing a thing about whether the shoe is of good quality or not
and pay a lot more for similar quality just because of the name


i know a thing or two about well made shoes
and i shined these up myself with quality products to take care of them
Respect.
Good care is a huge part of it . Shoe trees are so amazing lol

As long as when your arms are at your side your fingers go past the bottom of the jacket you are good. You should be able to curl your fingers under the bottom of the jacket and grab it if that make any sense.

i found the CYA measurement to be better than the curl your hand method
CYA = cover your ass
because some people can have slightly shorter or longer arms ... but your ass is your ass and it should be covered by the back of the jacket
this is important because it affects the visual proportion of the person

i think for most people it should be about the same length... but the CYA method makes sure everyone is covered

I'm looking for a nice white dress shirt. I went into men's warehouse and found this shirt which fits well and looks nice. Anyone know where I can find it cheaper? I can't seem to find the exact shirt anywhere else....

^^^ Maybe some other folks here can answer your specific question.

In a general sense, I've had some good luck over the years at the discounters/clearance places like Nordstrom Rack and Marshalls. You can't go in expecting to get exactly what you want because their inventory varies depending on what sells and doesn't sell at the first line stores. And staples (a white dress shirt being a staple) don't often end up there because the first line stores don't often get stuck with extra inventory of them. But it's been my experience that they're worth making a quick trip through on an occassional basis. You won't always get lucky in finding something you need, but when you do, it's likely to be a great deal.

Also, as an alternative, I've had good experience over the years with Jos. A. Bank Traveler series dress shirts. I HATE ironing, and of all the "wrinkle free" shirts I've tried, the Bank shirts are the ones that come out of my dryer truly not needing to be ironed.

The jacket def covers a good part of my ass but didn't go past it. It's hard to remember right now but I'm pretty sure it's a good fit. You're the exact type of person I'm not too concerned about though. To 99% of people I will look good but you will sit there and pick apart my mistakes.

Hopefully you are just confused about the size and it was a 40R and not 40L
That is all

Quite a few suits these days are cut a little shorter than they traditionally have been, so it may be that the longer suit is more in line with what you'd prefer anyway.

Agreed, but I would say that is more suited towards the euro look and slim suits that Express and Zara offer. I can't see any RL suit needing to be sized up to a 40L for someone who is 5'10"

Anyways, Solly hope the suit works out for ya. I'm sure it will look good because you are a sex machine. Now we need to get you some nice shoes to go along with that

You're almost certainly correct. Of course suit jacket length is a personal preference thing--as long as it feels good and doesn't look like a Civil-War-era frock coat then it's all good.
