In fact, what are you opinions on all these self proclaimed #menswear illuminati dudes? Nico, Noah, CBenjamin, HTTGAP, etc?
I’m friends with the four aforementioned “#menswear illuminati dudes” because we all know what it’s like for people to be jealous of us.
I am a big proponent of the oxford button down and after reading blurbs from LAS over at HTTTGAP/ Sartorially Inclined, I have been successfully brainwashed into lusting after his ROTM cutaway oxford number. That being said, before I pull the trigger ($130 bones, I believe) I was wondering if you knew of any cheaper alternatives? Is the ROTM joint worth the cash?
You know how for every pair of shoes TOMS sells they donate a pair to a child in need? Well, word on the street is that for every cutaway ROTM sells Lawrence donates one to a #menswear blogger who is still living at home with his moms. They call this initiative “No Blogger Left Behind.”
Sure, you can go cheaper, but at $130, I believe that’s a very fair price for such a handsome shirt. In years past, it has historically been pretty difficult to find cutaway collars at fair prices. However, today, notables in this price range include: Epaulet, Finamore (on Shop the Finest) and Guy Rover (on Yoox).
Note: Guy Rover collars are not as extremely cutaway as ROTM, Epaulet and Finamore.
