tight button down shirts

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Besides band of outsiders, what are other brands that have fitted button down shirts? Im not sure if i want to spend $300 on shirts. Is it worth the price? I can see why designer jeans cost so much and I have no problems spending on them but for shirts, I am not so sure.

How large you are will determine what "slim fit" shirts will actually fit you properly.

Yes, please post your measurements.

I remember a long time ago, jskidder recommended a few brands at Target for slim-fit button downs, Keanan Duffty being one of them. I bought one of the shirts, and it provides excellent fit for something that costs 1/10 the price of BoO. Considering I'm a poor college student with no income, I'm satisfied with wearing that for now.

i have never suggested anything by target. ever. i have never even touched a garment from there other than some underwear and socks so how could i advise anyone else to wear it? i think you have me confused with someone else.

*edit* Yeah, I think I actually had you confused with someone else. Nevermind. To think - jskidder shopping for clothing at Target? Can't be true.

Just in case anyone wondered what it would sound like if jskidder actually said this to you in person!

LOL.

Just to clarify, this might have been the posting I remembered: http://www.honestforum.com/diesel-je...ml#post1385547

Jskidder is off the hook, but he did compliment ryanduke when he was wearing the Keanan Duffty for Target shirt. It's guilt by association .

Honestly, I think it was a pretty damn good shirt, and I'm glad you recommended the brand back then, because I still wear the Duffty Target shirt I have. Like I said - I have no income, so I can't afford to drop $200-$300 on a shirt. In fact, even $80 is too much for me, if it's not formalwear. Denim, however, is another matter...

These days you can find BoO at Barney's for $79 on final clearance. It's definitely worth it, so consider it.

Do they have size S (I'm guessing that's my size)? I might actually considering picking up a few shirts at that price...unfortunately, it's the middle of finals week, the closest Barney's is an hour by public transport, and did I mention that it's the middle of finals week? If I don't go before I go home, however, I won't be anywhere near a Barney's until mid-January, which I'm guessing is too late.

I'm in a similar boat as you, they are nice shirts but not $300 after tax nice. And not a chance there is any decent sizes or colors left at $79, there is usually very little good stuff left over after the initial shipment, even less after the pre-sale, practically nothing after the main sale. So I doubt there is anything left at all now.

I went last weekend to the store in LA and there was 4-5 shirts, sizes P-M. Nothing I wanted though, but they were all $109 at 60% off. Soon they will be marked down even more. You should just call at a non-peak hour and have someone check the stock for you.

You have way too much free time. You should be trying to impress chicks by falling in front of them or something.

Here's a photo with my Keanan Duffty for Target button down. I like it a lot, considering it only cost me about $25. Fit is pretty spot on, although it's a tiny bit longer than I'd like. I love the red stitching around the last button and the inside of the collar, as well as the checked pattern inside the sleeves and the collar. The details are great. The only thing I don't like on it is the little logo, but I can live with that.

^i beg to differ on the fit. shoulders are narrow but the bicep seems blousy and it drapes awkwardly in the chest. also, it looks like the edge of the bottom hem is curling up at the bottom, a sign of inferior cotton that does not shrink evenly.

also, you are supposed to remove the extra buttons from the placket before you wear it. not sure if you knew that or not but its worth mentioning.

i also have a serious problem with shirts that have a different pattern inside the cuff that the rest of the shirt. tacky imo, as is that red buttonhole.

at least you cropped those filthy asics out of this shot though.

<3.

Thanks for telling me about the placket (I was kind of afraid I'd lose them) and the curling bottom hem - I didn't know that. How can you determine before washing if the cotton is good quality? Ah well - you get what you pay for I guess.

P.S. The biceps are blousy because I'm a skinny asian motherfucker with no arms, so I don't blame the shirt. I really just need to work out.

^there are a million brands of shirts out there with all sorts of different cuts. i promise there are several that will fit your arms just fine. its not you, its just that the cut of the shirt doesn't suit you.
