Used to be great. Since they were brought out by Swedish company they've just peddled overpriced stuff of middling quality. Some pieces are worth buying imo like the double decker (I got it in green for 300 in a sale) however I can't see any reason to buy their shirts or blazers. They used to run a Gant rugger brand which was sort of modern preppy but I can't see it anymore in the site so maybe it's defunct.

Example: I dont wear grey chinos often but I like to wear them sometimes with certain shirts/sweaters, I am not going to spend 60€ or more on a good pair, I buy them at Massimo Dutti or similar for 30-40€ and the result is not as bad as you say

They have some nice colours for chinos, I personally dont know that brand so no idea about quality.

No, they arent that slim at Massimo Dutti because the brand is usually targeted to people above 30 years old. If you go for slim fit at Zara for example, you get pure SEXcore. Low rise yes, but thats the trend on nearly all brands.

>> No.14556510

I'm relatively new to all this, where do you get high-rise non-sexcore pants these days? I'm getting real tired of the shit I can find for reasonable price at the mall, which is all ultra-slim low-rise that doesn't fit.

I've progressively been stocking up on unlined Ratio OCBDs, because muh purism, but I overlooked the details on the most recent and accidentally ordered an interlined one. I actually really like the thickness of the collar and placket. This is still "soft interlining", mind, not fused at all.

>> No.14568372

I think they're both good, I have both period Brooks Bros OCBDs, and soft lined (but not fused) shirts from Kamakura and also 1960s period stuff (I found out after flipping the collars after wearing them through) and they both make for nice collar rolls.

The softness and the completely anarchic roll you get from true period Brooks Bros is really something else though.

Try vintage. You might be surprised by how modern the fit can be. I just bought a 60's brooks brothers blazer and the fit is absolutely spot on. Jacket hem reaches to the bottom of my bum though which, whilst ideal imo, isn't exactly modern. Other features: (high arm holes), straight/slim cut (i'm a 40 inch and the jacket is something like 42 inches) and narrow sleeves. My only issue with this is the short sleeve hem. I'm hoping to get that tailored. There should be at least half an inch of extra fabric for that right?

It's like you don't know quality. They're indistinguishable from other high street brands IMO. A pair of quality chinos won't have elastane (that will loosen over time) and will have extra fabric on the seams on the inside to allow you to let the trousers out. Quality chinos will have nice, natural buttons and an after dinner split (something you might find on iconotex chinos). They most likely won't be made in Asia at an enormous factory.

What you mean to say is that j.crew chinos are adequate.

I'd go with higher rise pants, as someone's mentioned before. Or maybe, just pull them up, it seems your belt is really loose, kinda makes everything look sloppy. Try a braid belt, or canvas belt, if you're going for a prep look. Also, I'd suggest a heavier sweater, that's maybe half a size larger. The color isn't ideal either, it's a very inoffensive grey.

This isn't true. J. Crew will pretty often put some of their nicer stuff on sale or offer coupon codes on full price items.

Try Beams Plus Japan or vintage as the other guy said, 60s stuff can be pretty modern in cut. The Japanese stuff tends to have the proper details (sack, 3roll2, 2 cuff buttons, sometimes hook vent) but they might be a bit short for taller gents. I think END and MrPorter carries them but I think you can get better deals just finding them on Ebay (I see a bunch of them on sale right now). Other japanese brands that might have them are soutiencol, septis, and rugged museum.

Blue OCBD is absolutely central to me. It is my favourite kind of shirt (although blue/white uni stripes comes a close second).
My kamakura isn't quite perfect though. The collar is great, but I'm not entirely happy with button placement, too high armholes and too slim a fit (it also shrank a bit after washing), too short. I have some other shirts from late "Lean Garments" which usually have nice baggy body and good length for tucking, decent button placement but imperfect collar. Bottom line is, I don't have a perfect shirt that I'd be willing to replicate x10 with luxire and I'm afraid a frankenstein shirt is going to be a complete mess.
