So, for the longest time, I have coveted some of the vests sold by San Fransisco alt clothing store Five and Diamond such as this
I like getting occasionally dressed up and I tend to favor stark contrasts of a white collard shirt with something else (a vest a tie etc.) when I do. I am looking for something like that but, as in the linked vest, with a little extra pizazz That being said, I don't get dressed up often enough these days (nor do I necessarily make enough money) to rationalize dropping that much money on a single item. Anyone have cheaper ideas of where to find similar items?

Hi everyone. It gets a little chilly up here in the winter, and I like to layer up with a long-sleeve t-shirt. I'd like them to come up snugly right around the base of the neck (without being a turtleneck, obviously), but this has proven more difficult than you might think. [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.

Which brands carry decent non iron slim fit dress shirts for Men (size -14.5 - 32/33)?
I have almost bought every single one I like at Brooks Brothers. Their fit is good but I am looking to shop from another brand so that I have more choice. Also I would prefer to go with a brand that has a good online store (hate going to the mall). Please note it has to be non iron. I am okay with BB prices but wouldn't mind learning about more reasonable options - Thanks!

I really like clothing (specifically shirts, dresses, skirts and tights/leggings) with all-over scenery or landscape prints. Where can I find more of it, and what search terms would help me zero in on it? [more inside]

Is there anything comparable in quality to, but cheaper than, Brooks Brothers shirts?
I usually buy the no-iron, slim-fit BB shirts, but I'm trying not to drop too much cash, as I need to replace all my shirts (WTF deodorant stains?!). I don't like the ginormous blousey shirts that typically pass for men's dress shirts, so recommendations for something along the lines of BB's slim-line shirts, qualitatively comparable but cheap enough that I'd switch brands would be appreciated.

Looking for fitted shirts similar to INC from Macy's, which is the only brand I've found shirts from that I've really liked. I work in a semi-casual workplace (no jeans/shorts, but untucked button-up shirts are fine), and I like shirts that I'll also wear on my days off. I'm pretty thin, so I need shirts that don't balloon out at the waist, and I tend to like relatively simple designs (plain colors/stripes, with a preference for monochrome). Preferably, the shirts would hold up well without ironing, since I only have a hand-steamer. What brands other than INC should I check out? (I'm in Southern California, so please stick to brands that would be available for trying on around here.)

I have a dress shirt, the cut of which is perfect. Is it a luxury within the reach of an ordinary middle-class person to pay someone to create a half-dozen replicas of this shirt in different colours / fabrics? Is it something I'd have to outsource, perhaps? Would it be significantly more expensive than simply ordering bespoke shirts made with measurements approximated from original?

I'm a mid-twenties, relatively-tall, relatively-fit (6' 1", 180 lbs...but I run a lot) guy who has a shirt problem. During the colder months I really like wearing long-sleeve cotton shirts as a sort of base layer under other things. My problem? I can't find any brand that fits...either the arms are too short, or the shirt maker seems to presume that I'm going to have a beer belly to go along with my longer than average arms. I.e., what I'm looking for is something like the small size of this,
but with longer arms. I realize I could get larger shirts tailored down or go the bespoken route, but both of those options seem kind of overkill for what should really be a pretty standard product. Are there any brands that serve guys in my size by default? [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!

I have to buy 8 identical ( different sizes ) dress shirts for the groomsmen in a wedding, along with 8 ties. The color required is a little out of the ordinary ( cream ). Where is a great place for men's dress shirts and ties in NYC / Manhattan. I don't need anything bespoke like Thomas Pink, but it should be good quality. Help the groomsmen look good in Manhattan.

It would be great if people could share their favourite suppliers/retailers/tailors for affordable, quality shirts. I'm talking about shirts which are either interesting, different or vintage. I'd be especially keen on those with detachable collars - this was in fact the reason for my asking the question. [more inside]
