I'm marveling atthe pattern matching. Formosa GMTO?
Nice AC. How high is front of collar? I'm probably bucking current SF trends on spread collars by opting for less spread. But I happily wear different collars, for variety. But then I don't cuff my trousers either.
You won't regret it. Fabric is lovely, soft hand.
