- Shirt with Ties...?
- May 20th, 16:04
I firstly want to thank everyone for all the help they provided for my formal events next month. I am super excited, I feel like I am going to be tres glamourous, and... yes. It will be epic and awesome!
However, my girlfriend wants to attend wearing a tie and nice button-down shirt with a formal vest over. We went to Men's Warehouse this past weekend, and... well. The salesman was extremely nice (he was adorable, actually. I don't think they get many fat lesbians in there), and we found a suitable vest and some ties, but we're still stumped for shirts. We're going to go to Casual Male this weekend and see if anything in the Big and Tall section fits her, but I thought I'd ask here and see if anyone has any suggestions.
What we're looking for:
Button down oxford style shirts in white, black, and another bright color (huge bonus if we can find a vibrant purple)*
Button cuffs are perfectly fine
She wears a 26-28-ish top- carries most of her weight in her belly, but her bust is large enough that fitting the vest was... interesting.
We live in the greater Boston Metro area, so we have most of the major chains available. Our trip is at the end of June, so online orders are okay- but we'd prefer a Brick and Mortar so we can ensure fit and don't have to futz with returns.
Thank you in advance!
Note: It is not a requirement that it be a man's shirt- it's just my experience that women's button down shirts don't have collars that are suited to wearing a tie.
