    You should definitely throw some brace buttons on those bad-boys.

    Agreed. I just thrifted the clips because they were available and cheap. Buttons will be going in as soon as a find a better set of braces.

    Many of the Gap chambray shirts have been marked down this week. A wise move now would be to wait til they do a % off of clearance, which I imagine will be soon.

    I was eyeballing the shirt when it was new at $70. I am glad I waited. :)

    I'll give it a shot. The shop I visited on 59th & Lex only carried small and x-large but I'll check the Time Square location for a large.

    Thanks...or maybe if you have SKU, I could get the local store to find one for me?

    I doubt I still have the tag around but will either find a large or get the sku info for you.

    I tried on a couple of the Gap chinstrap shirts today while in Paris. Very poor indeed. Armholes way too big, leading to restricted arm movement and pulling around the chest, and they're far too short.

    The chinstraps are fine, but the shirts they're attached too are abominable.

    How could big armholes lead to restricted movement? Sounds odd. I had luck with the Large Tall Gap shirts...I would have to agree that they are pretty short in the standard model.

    It sounds contradictory but it is so. Large, low armholes mean the sleeve is attached to a larger circumference of the shirt body. Because this larger area is attached to the arm you have more of the shirt body being pulled as you move your arm.
    The best way to understand this is so try a well cut garment. You will experience that "a-ha!" moment as your arms move and your shirt (or jacket) stays put.
    Sorry if I have not clearly explained this..
