Picked mine up today in store and sweet lord the Rainbow in the Dark madras above (which I didn't get) is amazing. If anyone has one of those in a Medium, or a White Somelos Whisper Chambray, that they're interested in selling to me/trading, drop me a line.   But as is, my Albini Circle Print Linen, Blue/Sand Madras, Olive Batik Madras, Blue Cayman Islands, and Indigo Hand Tie-Dye are amazing.
 This is the nerdiest chart and I love it so much. Thanks NYR for the link and the thorough explanation!
 Would anyone be interested in a group buy re-run of this solid navy shantung? It's basically perfect.
That looks really fantastic. Trying to imagine it in indigo! I'm definitely in it for texture and color depth rather than pure lightness, so the matka is definitely more my speed than the hopsack. That does help quite a bit!
  This attorney office clothes vs. court clothes conversation is completely fascinating to me. Glad to have stumbled into it. @Ambulance Chaser do you find that other attorneys in your field, who you meet in their office either casually or on business, also have this split? Or is this a result of SF/other style info in a minority of attorneys? I remember how OJ's Dream Team always got comments on their dress -- really just Johnnie Cochran's DB light blue suits -- which FX...
 Tried them on in store the other day, and they were pretty much the same. Great shirts! Such a deal.
 Haha there's some truth to that! By the way, great collar in your photo above. Seems a great cutaway (though I like mine just slightly taller in front). Who's the maker on your shirts -- or on that shirt in particular?
Do any of you fine folks have photos of the Indigo Matka in action? Natural light a plus! I'm trying to see how much color depth/variegation there is in the fabric as I consider summer-weight blue ties. It's been around for a year, so there must be some in addition to those on the Vanda blog.
  Thanks -- great thoughts on this. Glad to hear it's that smooth. I just have a thing about fuzzy ties in the summer, so I was concerned about the cashmere. It's a gorgeous tie. I might go for the green one, as I'm really looking for a new green-color summer-weight tie. In the blue category, the Wool-Linen-Silk Windowpane is the one that's caught my eye... though I really have way too many blue ties as it is.
