Yea both my shirts are semi-spread collar, non-ocbd. Really nice collar roll, mother of pearl buttons, tight single needle stitching. im very impressed by the workmanship overall
I've bought two shirts from Kamakura in slim fit and love them. After a couple washes, the shirts have broken in nicely and the fit is really great. The SA told me they do small batches of shirts in different patterns and cloths which come in around once a month so i've made a habit of stopping by just to see what they have whenever i'm in the area.

I dont wear many suits (usually dress shirts and slacks + sport coat) for work and so my strands have seen much more wear than the park avenues. I have mixed feelings about wearing the strand with jeans myself. With some outfits i find that it works perfectly, but other times I feel that it is a bit too sleek for being worn with jeans despite the...
I've actually been looking around for brown suede captoes as well, this thread is really great. I had been considering going MTM with Meermin (which doesn't satisfy the easy to procure and return requirement OP asked) and was wondering for anyone with any knowledge how it would stack up against some of the other suggestions made in this thread. I'd be willing to pay up to $500, but would like to balance price and quality since i don't anticipate wearing suede captoes all...
