I'm sorry, undershirts? Maybe Ralph Lauren or someone has some nice ones or something, I've never really considered the question. Do you mean like "wife beaters" or whatever the going terminology is these days?

I remember there was that one designer who popped up recently that was essentially the cashmere equivalent of American Apparel, maybe he'd have something. So far, there's no go-to "Superfuture Approved Undershirt," as far as I know, and I really don't know why Hanes wouldn't be sufficient.

well, I have tried various somewhat generic type undershirts such as Staffords, Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, etc, and each seems to have their own fit, some more thick feeling, some more contricting, tight, maybe too small of a collar around the neck, some a bit too loose, etc etc

not looking for a "go-to", just personal ideas and preferences

im also interested in hearing about different opinions on layering in terms of long sleeved shirts and polos and things like that, if anyone would care to share some knowledge

If you mean wearing an undershirt as a normal shirt. THeres nothing wrong. Just make sure it's not superthin and light, like a hanes shirt. Sometimes it looks overly trashy. Try investing in Alternative or American apparel shirts. If you look in WAYWT, you'll see plenty of people with "undershirts" on.

How is vans sizing in general? how much of a change from my norm should I expect to make? and does it vary among different styles? what would the ballistics be for me if so?

i wear about a 9.5 US shoe size generally

if it has been asked i apologize, not sure what to search for specifically to find

AA is fine for whenever. Layer with different colors, do whatever. What's nice about plain shirts is you don't really have to care much, just throw it on with whatever you want under it, whatever over it, and go out. It's fine.

anyone know where I can these gucci sneakers? I've looked at the site, and they're not there. Haven't had a chance to stop by the store. they're white with flat soles and the typical stripe pattern and have a gold G that's a separate piece from the actual shoe. Like metally. I saw someone with them on and really liked them.

Also does anyone know of any midthigh grey peacoats with a belt? Preferably with like a gray herringbone or houndstooth stich.

Im looking for a new pair of denim; something that won't look weird on me. I have thick thighs but the rest of me is pretty slim (6'2 140-145).

Any suggestions?

What is the term/name for the ripples/stripes/corrugation of corduroy? You know how some corduroys have them thick and others have them fine? I dunno how to describe them when I tell people that I like them thick.

It's called the 'wale'. Lower values are thicker. May also be referred to as 'wide-wale'.
