Update as of 9/20/12: all buttons in both of my threads are still available!! Horn suit buttons coming soon... cheers, SP
Per request, here are some additional pictures of the AK Smoke and Standard Smoke buttons. Both styles have lighter (more shiny) and darker (less shiny, more opaque) versions that can be sorted upon request. The Standard is more defined between those two colorations than the AK. All MOPs have their own natural variations in the nacre and it is hard for my amateur photo skills to capture but I hope this helps. From Left to Right: AK darker then AK lighter, 18L bottom...
Dark green horn? I haven't seen any offerings like that. I'm looking at just a couple of horn choices to start out, light brown and dark brown probably. Did you perhaps mean a dark green Mother of Pearl suit button?SP

Beautiful shirt!!! Thanks for posting these pics, it is always great to see the end results from customers!! I love the parallel stitching and perfect color matching of the thread. Stunning.

Actually, no, I have not! Didn't really think about that type of angle. Searching around the web usually leads to those websites that show a ton of companies from China willing to supply fabrics in bulk.In terms of the amount, I say bulk but yeah the reality is at this point I'm only talking about 20 yards, 50 yards, 100 yards, those kind of orders.thxSP
I tried posting this on the MC forum but didn't get anywhere so perhaps I'll have better luck on SW&D where truly excellent tees are appreciated. I'm looking for a source of Pima or ELS cotton that is knit, such as used for undershirts. Does anybody out there have a source? The few online places I found just do not seem to have the correct thing. Some very highly regarded undershirts, such as those made by Zimmerli, Hanro and Suspel, may use any range of fabrics from...
Thanks for the reply, Carl. So you're saying that whatever mill(s) supply these fabrics to the above mentioned companies will not sell their cloth wholesale to the public or even wholesale to a fabric supplier such as New York Fashion Center Fabrics?SP
