It's really hard to tell sometimes if something will work before actually seeing it and experimenting with it.

I'm a big fan of the Artisan collar (unlined for super casual linen shirts). Should be a number of photo examples if you look at my other posts in the thread. Works for both dressy fabrics and casual fabrics.

That said, I've been meaning to make a dressy shirt with some kind of narrow point collar (Individualized has a few more other than the narrow point offered in the EP website), but maybe during one of 15% off promos next year. Some assorted unexpected events (nothing bad) have me needing to hoard my pennies; for one thing, switching camera systems for work makes buying luxury cars and watches look cheap. ;D

@Epaulet can't remember exactly the color these started, but was a lot lighter than now for sure.

Nice - just started "weathering" mine so hoping they get darker. Have another pair of tennis mid's that have darkened nicely.

Call me old fashioned but I love the Individualized button down collar for a casual shirt. I got three Fall 2016 shirts done with this collar. This being said, I have the Artisan with LLLining in some shirts and it's an incredible collar if you either (1) have a dressy fabric, or (2) have any fabric with a medium-scale pattern, like the Rezzo Brushed Twills, the Rapallo/Taviano Flannels, the Sovereign Melange Ginghams, or the Saranac Brushed Twills. My vote is always for a big, lightly lined/unlined button down collar, but substantial spread/non-BD collars like the Artisan look incredible with some good pattern in them.

BD collars are probably my absolute favorite but its like eating your favorite food every day, sure its good but after a while it just feels tiring.

Thanks! Will post photos when they come in. The folks at the Orchard St store might just take photos of those shirts anyway since I'm local to them. NYC is hot enough that the TM irregular blue would likely be wearable-ish. And I actually tend to wear "spring/summer" shirts underneath sweaters during cold weather to avoid overheating, but tend not to do that with linen... so 3-ply might be the ticket.

 

Ironically given all the collar talk above, I'm debating whether or not to get the 3-ply hunting tattersall in a BD or Artisan collar. Leaning BD ofc, especially as a fabric as substantial as that would hold up very well under a jacket no matter the collar, but am also keenly aware how boss it would look as an Artisan. Like Natalie Imbruglia, I'm torn. EDIT: no longer torn, getting the BD. The real question is whether to get the mitered (palazzo) cuff or regular cuff for the 3-ply.

 

 

 

@applky haha, we love the Ladies Light Cool James jokes over here! And you've got a Natalie Imbruglia reference for us too! 

 

My two cents on all this: 

 

Palazzo mitred cuff is awesome, I get it on all of my shirts. 

 

To @FrankCowperwood 's point, the collar selection, especially the uncommon ones, is the strongest point of Individualized's appeal

 

We've sold a lot of Artisan collars in the past few months, and I've never had anyone regret that choice - either dress or casual. It's uniquely good and has a lot of swag. I love it. Would be non-traditional but very cool on a flannel shirt.

@rydenfan looking good! Leave them in the sun for a day or two if you really want to get them dark. They literally get a sun tan.

Mike,

I tried emailing but I never heard back; I'm assuming you've just been swamped lately. For order #29967, if you could see about having the shoulders widened to 19" and the rear box pleat removed, I'd appreciate it. If it's too late, it's not that big of a deal.

Thanks,
Steve

@SteveL91 Also sent an e-mail for minor fit adjustments and haven't heard yet. Yes, I assume the inboxes must runneth over at the moment! I imagine they'll get it squared away when the dust settles.

Will the 403 with the commando sole see a restock this fall? I personally think it's the best indy makeup and would love to grab one.

My EFF trousers found me today - Japanese cross hatch khaki. Amazing, lovely fabric, suddenly remembering the green I passed on! Maybe it will come around again. Super excited to get these hemmed so I can wear them. Will gets lots of wear, they are fitting the need I really wanted to fill, so happy customer here.

For linen trousers like these, can I go with a nice cuff?

I'm really stoked for the Hertling F/W release......

Agreed. I've mentioned those several times on here. I grabbed them last year and they are without a doubt my most worn pair of pants - I regularly pair them with everything form just a t-shirt and sneakers to a hopsack navy sc with a spread collar dress shirt. Loved them to much that I got the stone ones this time around.

 

Regarding the cuff, you could definitely go that way and they'll look good, but I think you'll lose some of that versatility. With the cuff, they'll probably look 10% better w/ a jacket, but a little off with more casual shirts and knitwear.

Same here! The goal is to pick up only two pairs of trousers. Though I'm sure it will be a challaenge!

Is there a place one can see all of the collar options in one place, with actual photos of the shirts(not the drawings)?
