Good review, Jason.   I used to be against back darts on shirts as well. But I've learned from some of the tailors on SF that back darts are necessary to achieve the proper curve on a shirt, such that it fills in the small of your back. Even some bespoke shirtmakers use back darts by default.   I can't stand pockets on any shirts, so I've removed them with a seam ripper.

Couple of close calls last night all went to Miami... especially the foul on Noah near the end of the 4th when he fought Bosh for a rebound. That possession could have tied the game and bring back the sliding offense for the Bulls.
For sale is a beautiful pair of Epaulet worsted flannel "Walt" trousers in the sold-out "Tropical Pine" grey color, size 32. This color looks grey indoors but takes on a rich green undertone outside. They've been worn lightly and are in great shape.   [[SPOILER]] Price includes shipping in the CONUS.
Got my first batch of Kamakura OCBDs. Shipping via Japan Post EMS was incredibly fast -- order placed Monday, dispatched Tuesday from Tokyo, arrived in Chicago by Thursday.   These are exceptional quality shirts for the price. The Tokyo Slim Fit is great if you're looking for a real slim fit. I'm 6'1 and normally take a 16-35 in Brooks Bros Extra-Slim Fit shirts (which billow terribly around the waist, time to throw them all out). I went with a 15 1/3 - 34 1/3 in the...
