I haven't seen anything but micro-gingham pulled off as CBD, but this combo is outright yelling.

No joy to handsew them back on. To be clear, I tugged the loose string a bit, so the buttons stitching problem wasn't as horribly obvious as pictured, but there were 3 buttons with loose strings, and a slight tug - no more button. Should be obvious QC.

Pics. iPhone, so not the highest quality, but hopefully gets the idea. Linen shirt, showing the linen quality and the button issues: Shot of before and after thick MOP (white shirt is before, cream shirt is after). This is much more notable in person; you can see that the new buttons are slightly smaller in diameter; you can see the milkiness and imperfections in the old buttons. What doesn't show as well is how the new buttons shimmer.
I just received my linen shirt. Cloth is really nice, fit is perfect, no issues with the armholes. Button stitching was a mess, however. Easily fixed, but I'm going to email their service folks. They've made a good upgrade to their MOP buttons, both the normal and thick -- much more translucent, less milky than previous. Unfortunately, they are out of the linen I used -- for future reference, the fabric # was l21. Will post pictures in a bit.

^ ^ This, and post only what you are pretty sure is CBD. Don't test borderlines. The point of CBD is style and expression within narrow boundaries, rather like a sonnet. Breaking obvious rules (bowties, bright green stripped tie and a 3 piece) defeats the point.
