Antonio asked: Collars – what type is good for short, thick necks?
Thick necks make finding shirts that fit a pain. Most shirts are made for average sized necks, so the collars aren’t great for our specific proportions. When you buy a shirt like that, it’s not long before the collar is crushed and less than presentable. A classic point collar is good for a round face, but can sometimes be boring and dated. Consider a cutaway collar, as there’s not as much to it, and it works well for someone with a shorter neck. I find that the button down collar works well for me. I like that it does a decent job of keeping the shape of my collars over time. There’s also the spread collar, but really, it’s subjective. Try shirts with each of these collars to figure out what you like best. Don’t forget, you can always go to a tailor for a second opinion if you’re not sure which way to go.

Simply Be Menswear

Erichnpitcher asked: I am wondering if you have reviewed the site simplybe? I have ordered from them a few times and the quality and style of their stuff is great! Photos to come.
We’re big fans of Simply Be and their UK site, Jacamo. In fact, they wrote us a guide to layering for fall that could come in handy right now. The clothing I’ve gotten from them is of great quality and fits well. They offer a pretty wide variety of clothing in extended sizes, so the website is well worth a stop. We’re looking forward to seeing your photos!

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
I love wearing socks but sometimes wanna try to not wearing it but still doesn't find the shoes that match with pants. Yea brogues is nice. Great explanation and answers U0001f44d
