I'm looking for a new man-bag. Suggestions? No idea where to look, tbh. Figure these threads deal with stuff like that.

Picked up a new Elka/Norse Projects rain mac and some Yuketen boots at the Norse Store sale, super ready for fall now.

do you have any photo examples of the kind of thing you want?

That said, I'm just going to throw out Makr as a potential candidtate. Not too pricey, has a 'manly' look, made in 'murrica. I have one of their totes and I love it. Billykirk is also another good one.

Did I just get mentioned in the same sentence with the words "fashion" and the names "mac" and "luckyboy?" Do I actually have some form of fashion now? My life is complete.

In regards to those wide neck shirts I ended up ordering one off ASOS. No idea how the quality is since it's the first thing I've purchased from them. But it was like 8 bucks with a 20% off code and free shipping. I didn't even have to leave my house.

I like them well enough for $8, wearing one today. Good beaters, but I had to size up especially after they went through the dryer once.

Which one did you order?

Got a couple around June but the arm/pit area was awful, rest of the shirt fit great, sleeves were just too short.

The look really isn't too hard to emulate. After all, it's just some blue pants, white pinstripe shirt (w/ blue), brown shoes/belt and tortoise shell shades. Like anything, what really sells the look is two things: fit and confidence.

I'm not sure of exact stores, but go looking for white/blue pinstripe dress shirts and brown oxford shoes. Derbys would probably work too. Make sure your pants are a higher rise (like his) to cut down on the sides billowing out. Unbutton the top two buttons and roll up the sleeves and call it a day. #teamtucked

.

Indeed. I have the pants in that exact fit (wearing them today actually) and that color of belt. I need to grab some more striped shirts like that, I don't have any really. Always been a solids guy. The shoes look nice too. I have some that color, but they are the no laces loafer style.

Now if I can find a reason to wear an outfit like that outside of work and not look too dressy in my small town. I've always felt weird even wearing chino pants outside of work. :P

Zara has some of the best dress shirts you can buy off the rack, I would highly recommend them. Not cheap, but worth the premium. Thomas Pink also has some incredibly good stuff.

You mean that place Gosling was walking out of in that photo? Yeah, that seems inexpensive, :P

EDIT: Upon looking they have dress shirts for $20. I was mistaken. Gosling knows style and affordability!
So they are solid shirts?

EDIT 2: Not a lot to choose from though.

My jeans came in. Despite being called 'skinny jeans' on FarFetch, they are the 17.5 cm ones. I'm crushed! I'll have to return them now, which is such a pain in the ass on DHL.

My MMM shirt came in though. I'm shocked not only that an XS fits me, but fits me well. A little feminine, but that's fine. I'm confident enough in my masculinity to wear a pink floral shirt.

Yeah, that's the one I picked up, got a small. Everything was perfect except the sleeves, just too tight, not enough room. Maybe I needed a medium, but I'm not sure it would have fit well if I went a size up.

Haha I didn't even realize it was in the background of that photo. Good stuff!

I suggest finding a retail store near you and walking in. They don't have a very large selection of shirts, but what they do have is always good. Zara is an Inditex company if I'm not mistaken, and they change their stock rapidly based on trends and what's "in." So if you walk into the store every month or so you're bound to see new stuff.

Edit: Just checked their website, looks like the stuff they sell online is slightly different from the stuff they have in stores. I definitely recommend finding a retail outlet and checking there.

Actually, FarFetch had an amazing return process, and it's going to be free. I had such a bad experience with DHL and Matches Fashion, but it turns out that was more Matches fault than DHL. I've already booked the return and everything. Took me a minute. And the jeans are very skinny in the thigh, but way to big on everything below the knee. I could get them hemmed, I suppose, but I figure it's better to just buy the real thing.

Pretty sure he's filming a scene from Crazy, Stupid, Love in that photo. In which case, none of his clothes are from Zara.

With that said, Zara is definitely a good affordable option for items like dress shirts. Fit is pretty solid from what I hear.
