ClothingFilter: Where on Earth do men with "athletic builds" (big shoulders/chest; smaller waist relative to other proportions) reliably shop for fashionable, casual
upper-body clothing? What style blogs and resources exist for dudes like myself? I am pretty sick of having to try on a zillion things to little success at most stores or to rely exclusively on very large thrift stores for finding something by random chance ... and "Big and Tall" stores are usually much too big?!

I am aiming to sell a men's fashion line on-line beginning in June. I am doing research about on-line selling platforms. The concerns I have on my end is free shipping costs and product return (if the the items do not fit) I have checked Amazon and they do charge shipping costs. Now looking for some local e-commerce businesses.
Any other suggestions?

I am developing a line of men's casual wear and we are brainstorming for handsome, well bodies actors and celebrities age 35 + to imagine wearing our pants. Because of the style and look of the pants we have to make the website hyper-masculine (ala Bruce Weber) My template is Daniel Craig. (My goal is to actually get these pants into a Bond film) The actors/performer/sportsmen do not have to "good guys" but they do have to be sexy and masculine. Some examples include Aaron Eckart, Matthew Mcconaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michael Phelps, etc

I keep having the same wear and tear on my suit pants (and to a lesser extent, jeans and khakis) and I want to know what is causing it and how to make it stop. In almost every pair the crotch begins to go quickly, tearing apart, piling, fraying, and being worn straight through with little holes. it's like I'm doing splits or high kicks all day. These occur across types of pants, tailored and not, stuff I swear frequently and stuff I hardly ever wear. As far as I know I'm buying the right size and try to wear them at my natural waist, just below the belly button and frequently with belts. I'm a guy with a bit of a gut and I don't go for marathon runs in my suit pants. For outfits I wear a lot I rotate the pants but within a year they're ruined and torn up. Is it the material? Am I sitting wrong? Hanging them wrong? Is there something I should be looking or/asking the tailor about? [more inside]

I don't want to find a good men's scarf. I want to find the best men's scarf. It should be non-wooly/scratchy, smooth to the touch, long enough and thick enough to be wrapped around the neck and draped over the front to create an insulation layer while waiting on cold train platforms and be in a "masculine" pattern/color that would suit most coats. It should also be durable and long lasting, I want a scarf you could wear without comment for 20 years and then be buried with it. Where is this scarf?

Looking for hipster, modern and unisex bow ties. All fabrics will be considered, but especially woven fabrics, chambray, linen, or silk with a touch of texture. Bonus points for bow ties that are slim or have slightly trimmer proportions. Who are your favorite designers? [more inside]

Where in Toronto can I buy men's linen shirts, preferably dark colors and short sleeves? I'd rather not order online due to sizing and such. Thanks.

Let's say I have $500-$700 to spend on a work week's worth of clothing. And let's say I want to look good
— sharp, competent, grown up and well put together, not just vaguely "professional" or dress-code-compliant in a Wal-Mart-khakhis-and-a-polyester-shirt sort of way. (In fact, I have no dress code at all, and I'm totally willing to sacrifice ostensible "dressiness" in the interest of looking sharp and grown up and etcetera.) What should I buy? [more inside]

Please recommend good quality button-down shirts for sale in NYC for a slender guy - I'm looking for something casual that can be worn tie-less and untucked if I'm in the mood, but still well made with good fabric and cut, i.e. at the level of Thomas Pink or w/e but casual.
Priced up to around let's say $200 a shirt, although if it's less that's even better. Thanks!
