I have the Sky Blue and Blue Pinpoint Oxfords. The Sky Blue is what I would consider a regular, medium weight oxford, with the somewhat coarse structure to match. I love the pale blue color. The Pinpoint is thinner and has less texture in the weave and thus wrinkles more easily, but not overly so. The color is also slightly darker. Both very serviceable fabrics.I ordered them with the same measurements but the Sky Blue feels slightly more constrictive. Not sure if this is...
Sure. I'm probably getting a light blue linen as well. Recently got the navy chambray and was kind of surprised how well the dark blue worked for me so figured I'd try it in linen. Not wearing it with a jacket though.
I've been thinking of a navy linen shirt like this:Possible fabrics:http://luxire.com/products/cotton-linen-navyhttp://luxire.com/products/dark_indigo_linenI don't have swatches of them so I'm afraid the dark indigo might be too dark, and I'd like the cotton-linen to be a bit more blue. Might have to order something else first to get the swatches.Would be great with light colored pants — light grey wool, light tan, white, etc.
I like my casual collars with soft or no underlining but the problem with those is that sometimes the collar lays flat (I don't wear them with a jacket or a tie). Do you guys think it would make sense to have a collar band with medium lining, and a collar leaf with no lining? That way the collar band would stay up and the leaf would just hang there in all its casualness. Luxire, what say you?
I'm about to order a pair of off-white jeans. Any fabric suggestions?
These are both yours, Matt? Are these Luxire's standard English spread collars? Do you have a picture of them unbuttoned?
Light sand desert boots by Brunello Cucinelli. Size 42 EU. Leather soles and crepe heels. Used, in good condition and lots of life left. Slight denim discoloration on the top. These are over 600 € retail, so grab a bargain! EU shipping 30 € US shipping 40 €
A lot of similarly named fabrics leads to misunderstandings — fabric codes would eliminate this.
This was posted before but I think a page like this would really help: http://propercloth.com/collar-styles Wouldn't even need that many — maybe 5-10 different collars, with consistent photography, in the same fabric, plus measurements. Easy for beginners to pick one, easy for advanced customers to get a starting point and adjust measurements to their liking. Picking a collar the way it is now is pretty much trial and error.
