Although this is something not meant to be seen, I find it very beautiful. The stitching is so precise, clean & harmonious:
Those are extremely beautiful. I really love the bevelled and fiddle back waist- and the heal height is really classic looking and elegant ( I am also short). May I ask what your current wait time is currently for commissions?

Honestly that's my experience with poplin as well. But the 300/2 twill from DJA is just out of this world soft & silky yet has a feel of strength to it that is remarkable. I have fallen in love with that stuff Here is the link , but...
[quote=potemkin_city_limits;3681415]Its funny I had a friend give me a replica Rolex once. It looks almost perfect and no one would actually be able to tell the difference, yet I still just dont enjoy wearing it because to me its a $100 watch with a Rolex logo on it. If you cant afford the real thing then go buy something else. QUOTE] Remove or have someone remove the Rolex name on the dial and back (I assume) and it will be "something else" which you can then wear.

Nobody but other watch enthusiasts notice the watch on your wrist and they are often the one who can tell the difference. Well said and totally agree. Trying to pass a fake is admitting someone cares more about the status symbol than the actual merits of the...

DJA now has a shirting called Cullinan it is a 300/2 available in both twill and poplin. I have the twill only but this stuff is as decadent as silk but a whole lot more...
Quote: Originally Posted by patrickBOOTH Poplin is cotton. It is just the weave that makes it "poplin". Exactly. Poplin = Broadcloth = Plain weave. All 3 are equivalent nowadays and can be found in any type of material (coton, silk, linen, wool ect) Twill is a type of weave that has a diagonal appearance to it. It can also be found in any type of material (coton, silk, linen, wool ect) Poplin and twill weaves are both popular...
May I suggest Twill instead of poplin (plain weave). I have many shirts in both twill and plain weave in the same coton (same NE, manufacturer and similar weight) and clearly the twill is more wrinkle resistent. Interestingly the twill seems softer where the plain weave seems to have a much dryer hand. The twill is as thin and light but feels more substantial somehow, just much nicer in my opinion. Because of this twill is now my absolute favorite and I will pick a...
