Hey.

Im in a bit of a pickle. For quite a while now Iv pretty much only worn tones (black, white, grey and jeans). Kinda limits your wardrobe a little bit and to add ontop of that I think most (if not all) patterns look silly on me. Useful eh?

At any rate I usually end up in dark slim/'bootcut' (though not massive) jeans with a white/black tshirt on and from time to time a shirt over the top worn open. Im trying to find shirts I can wear on their own but getting them to fit right and not look weird is hard (shirts look odd untucked if worn on their own and ties look silly).

Anyway, skin is this sort of colour: Nothing too dark or too light, pic of face/hair in profile. Rest of me is slim built except from my shoulders/upper back. Any ideas?

Was thinking similar to http://www.asos.com/Ben-Sherman/Ben-...ort=3&clr=Navy (Sleeves rolled up, worn open over a white tshirt) or something. (Ignore price for now, Im just trying to get ideas) but I truly am totally useless at colours/patterns

EDIT: Just noticed its got a really weird pattern on it so http://www.burton.co.uk/webapp/wcs/s...9843&langId=-1 is a better idea

Your arm is exactly like mine, same shape, same colour, even the freckle is in the same place.

I have a couple 7s. That and I bet its a helluva lot more vascular when I get pumped, climbers forearms/hands are really not nice (you can see some of the veins on my hand, it gets 10 times worse than that

Mine too my veins in my forearm/hand often pump out cos of boxing. Oh and yes i stalk you :teeth:

I think the burtons shirt is nicer, however what is it you want? it seems you want something more casual and that looks a little formal in my opinion. The ones with check or just generally more casual will suit general wear more...

Smart shirts often look better open and with the sleeves rolled up, their a bit shorter and generally more slim fitting so when its open it looks better... Though I dunno what I want, just being able to wear more stuff! That and I need more shirts, I cant bloody wear the ones I used to closed 'cause of my swole upper back genes

Well your light brown so a lot of colours will suit you. I bought a shirt from river island, white with grey stripes, looks really good casual or casual smart and i get compliments everytime i wear it so i imagine that sort of thing would suit you as well. I did the same thing as you, tried to find something colourful, was looking for a check shirt and ended up getting white with grey stripes.

quite like stuff like http://www.asos.com/Asosman/Asos-Str...rt=-1&clr=Blue

You just let them rip to give that hulk effect..!

I prefer just goin out into shops and things just catch my eye. Then you can just try it on as well..

I have quite a few white shirts, I practically live in white/black shirts! Was trying to find something a bit different but I just cant get anything which catches my eye which wouldnt look weird. Im thinking defiantly go for matt colours first
