Someone pointed out to me that in Williamsburg you see a lot of Burberry styles. Burberry is known for its tartan patterns especially associated with Scotland.
You see so much of the light tan with faded black and red lines….you even see it as a shoe style.
Its weird how one group sticks to a similar pattern like that….
Parhaps its the William in williamsburg! The U.K. hashpah is in the name…November 12, 2013 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #986735
Some people think that they look good in something because they paid a lot of money for it. Baggy Brooks Brothers shirts never looked good on anyone, yet so many bachurim wear them.November 13, 2013 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #986736Torah613TorahParticipant
Burberry is cheap and classy looking.
They’re mostly not wearing the brand name, but the lower priced knockoffs.November 13, 2013 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #986737PosterMember
i happen to like the Brooks Brothers shirts very much. I think they look very good on my husband.November 13, 2013 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #986738Mr SfardiParticipant

Real Burberry isnt cheap.November 13, 2013 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #986740
Poster – If your husband isn’t fat, get him an Express 1MX shirt. I promise you the fit will be a thousand times nicer.
Go down a size, up a fit. In other words, if he wears a 15 1/2 slim-fit now from Brooks Brothers, get him a 14 1/2 modern fit from Express. The shirts are generally $59.90 but they usually have a buy one get one half off running, plus other seasonal deals.
If he is indeed fat, stick with the much looser-fitting Brooks Brothers.November 13, 2013 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #986741
This thread is as ridiculous as saying WHY SO MANY SHORT SKIRTS IN FLATBUSH AND BORO PARK??November 13, 2013 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #986742

Hmmm…was just in Willib last night. Saw lots of black, and black and for color, some black. No tartan patterns.November 13, 2013 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #986745WIYMember
Much more in Flatbush to be accurate.November 13, 2013 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #986746pixelateMember
I doubt LAB knows much about what he’s talking about. 15 1/2 is mainly the neck size, so by suggesting to go down to a 14 1/2 Express, clearly, POSTER, he wants your husband to choke. If you want to get a taste of LAB’s own preferred style, it is extra slim shirt that is flush with flat-front pants, and you have to walk stiffly to keep the starch on and nothing showing.November 13, 2013 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #986747Mr SfardiParticipant
Poster: try Chaarles Thrywitt extra slim fit. The fit is The best from any company. And the quality is great too. They had a sale going on last week for 29.50 a shirt, but I dont know if it is going on.November 13, 2013 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #986748
LAB: I don’t appreciate generalizations. Its started by a bored individual who has nothing important to do with their time.November 13, 2013 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #986749
pixelate – 15 1/2 is not mainly the neck size; it is only the neck size, measured in inches from end to end. I know that.
Obviously, the rest of the shirt is made in proportion to the neck size.
People who like slim-fitting shirts (read: people who don’t want their shirts to look like garbage bags) are better off going down a size than a fit when it comes to Express. The reason is that the fit is mainly affecting the lower end of the shirts, and the size affects the shoulders and chest, which is where the nicer fit will show.
If you don’t close your top button (no one does), a size down will not make you choke. You’ll barely notice it.November 13, 2013 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #986750justsayinMember
Hungarians, (many original williamsburgers) are very into brand names. Most will take out a mortgage to get the real thing but some will go for any imitations. That’s the answer I got. Not only burberry. (R”L)November 13, 2013 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #986751apushatayidParticipant

The burberry plaid is an explosive and popular look in the goyisha velt. If it is so popular there, part of that popularity spills over into our communities.
