Lance, thanks for the suggestions. I'm lefthanded too, and i had never thought about pocket placement, but now you've got me thinking. Can you tell me why a split mitered yoke is better?
[quote=Arrogant Bastard;3518370]Tattersal and gingham are wholly appropriate for BD shirts. In fact, there are some who would go so far as to say that gingham or tattersal should only be made into BDs, being somewhat casual patterns when compared to most. QUOTE] Thanks again, AB; just what i wanted to hear. after browsing their webpage, i've got a list of about 30 checks i like. must. exercise. self-control. and thanks for the info on poplin, abner.
thanks for the advice, guys.

Mind you, it's all relative, isn't it. I've heard people in San Diego complain on certain days about the "humidity."

I grew up in greater Boston and lived for several years in Japan, and I don't think there's any comparison. Tokyo, Osaka, and especially Kyoto are so humid in the summer that, just walking down the street, you feel as though you're swimming. When I lived there, I would go...
forgive me for not paging back through the entire thread, but can someone tell me, isn't there a filson tote with a zip top?

thanks for the advice, jb. i'll check out Vahan's. expanding the topic a bit, has anyone eaten at Eve restaurant? i'm trying to decide where to eat out this weekend (the other contenders are Logan and Barge). wondering if eve is worth the premium.
