Does anyone have any recommendations for a nice crisp white dress shirt that isn't too sheer and is very soft. I have some of the basics and am okay spending more, but don't necessary want to venture into sky high territory. Thinking maybe there's a shirt that's in that sweet spot of great price and excellent quality and wondering if any of you fine gents know which. Also bonus points if you have photos and order number for nice English Spread collar.
earlier in thread they said no changes once order placed, so you have to cancel and re-place the order.
I remember reading their response to someone asking about this with VBC and they said that they usually get them and will put them in by request, but don't always have them.
thanks but is there a ballpark?
Has anyone had a suit made? Is there a way to estimate the cost of a suit using a particular trouser fabric, for example?

Just my particular body style (I have pronounced collarbones) or is it one of those "That's not how this works! That's not how any of this works!" type...
setting everything up applying reno hermes red cream polish on merlot AEs -- not a perfect match (their premium polish is actually really good) but wanted to redden the leather a bit for this go round wax polish on the bourbon -- mix of brown and mahog applying a few extra layers of neutral wax to both pairs quick buff of the toe cap and edge dressing applied They were in pretty good shape to begin with so I didn't do too much. All in all took me about 90 minutes...
I wear a 9.5E in both PA and Mora 2.0.
Okay so someone covered the Independence lining, but can anyone comment on Independence insole pad? I wasn't 100% clear on whether that's something people normally get, but I got it. However, my invoice lists it and it says "OK'd by customer," and now I'm concerned I made a stupid choice and I shouldn't have. Can anyone shed some light for me? Edit: I asked AE CS and this was the response. It sounds like it's a good thing, but still concerned why specifically noted that I...
