Only rules to this are you have to be in Toronto (so you can get fitted in the showroom) and you have to post telling everyone about it. My email and phone...

Contrast cuffs / collars are becoming more and more popular, especially with the summer coming in when people take off the tie and wear the collars open. -------------------------------------------
Great thread!! These shirts are using protection. -----------------------------------------

This is a little different but it's a button down with white lining inside the cuff and white lining on the inside of the collar. Good for casual. -------------------------
Quote: Originally Posted by whistler My first tailorstore shirt arrived yesterday. I have given it a wash and iron, and am wearing it around today to get a feel for the fit. It feels a tight around the shoulder and chest, so may need to add some more room on the next order. I took the measurements off a couple of other shirts I own (taking the best features of each). Any thoughts on the fit? Measurements: Collar\t40.5 cm\t15.9...
Anyone on here visited James VII on Richmond? - I am the owner. If any of my customers are on here, hopefully they can say something (positive or negative)

No matter the cut, if you are wearing a bright purple suit than ya, you might look like the guy from the McDonald's children's toys. But a nice black suit can slim down a large built man. -------------------------------------
