@ccallis It would be nice to allow the specification for number of buttons regardless of shirt length. The shirt I received only had 7 buttons due to its length. I have room for another button and would have preferred 8.
Pink Dress Shirt Recommendation Requested
Would like a recommendation for a pale pink fabric to be used for a shirt to be worn with a suit and tie.
Would like something thinner than a standard oxford. Would like the fabric to be non-transparent. A
search for "Pink" on Luxire's website came up with:
Pale Pink Soft Royal Oxford
Pink Pinpoint Oxford
Pink End-On-End 100/2
Pale Pink Lustrous Soft
Anyone have experience with the above fabrics or other pale...
The more photos I see of that collar, the more I like it (provided it is worn with a jacket).After adding the 1/2" to the collar points, what is the final measurement of the points.And, what's the measurement of the spread between the two points? Any pics with this shirt and just a tie (no jacket)??
Hidden button down collars seem to be mentioned somewhat frequently. I've used metallic collar stays along with a magnet to achieve the same result. Seems just as effective as a hidden button down, and perhaps more versatile since removing the magnet gets one back to the original collar. Can a hidden button down collar be "unbuttoned", or will this expose the hidden button and/or tabs? By the way, I still believe that larger collars which look good with a suit/tie...
Even with a hidden BD, it seems like it would look like a HUGE collar without a suit/tie.I'm beginning to wonder if a suit/tie just requires larger collars for both proper scale andto allow the points to be covered by the jacket. Curious what others think.
Shirt Fabric Drape
I've received some fabric swatches from various MTM shirt makers and am wondering how to evaluate them. By looking at them, I get a good sense of the color. I can also tell how transparent the fabric is. I can feel its softness. But, how can I get a sense of how a shirt made from the fabric will drape?? Any suggestions are appreciated.
