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

Epaulet shop - Official Affiliate thread - Page 3702post #55517 of 587408/14/16 at 3:47pmI'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. ;Dpost #55518 of 587408/14/16 at 4:09pmpost #55519 of 587408/14/16 at 5:43pmpost #55520 of 587408/14/16 at 7:27pm
Quick reminder... today is the deadline for 15% off of Individualized shirts. The code expires at midnight EST, so a little under 2 hours from now.
Here's the code: INDIVIDUALIZED-FALL16-PROMOpost #55521 of 587408/14/16 at 7:33pmQuote:Originally Posted by applky
Ladies Love Light Lining would be a great name for a #menswear hip-hop group. (Just gotta make sure James Todd Smith isn't in a litigious mood.)
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.Quote:Originally Posted by Nik Telford
I agree as well and I love button down collars, the difficult is that after a while you get tons of shirts with them. It can feel really boring to keep choosing the same collar type over and over. 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.Quote:Quote:Originally Posted by applky
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.
@JVK1 you bet, all of the new fabrics can be ordered in our whole range of Trouser fitsQuote:Originally Posted by rydenfan
@Epaulet can't remember exactly the color these started, but was a lot lighter than now for sure.
@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.post #55522 of 587408/14/16 at 7:44pmpost #55523 of 587408/15/16 at 5:48ampost #55524 of 587408/15/16 at 6:54ampost #55525 of 587408/15/16 at 10:33amMy 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?post #55526 of 587408/15/16 at 10:48ampost #55527 of 587408/15/16 at 11:22amQuote:Originally Posted by duff406

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.post #55528 of 587408/15/16 at 11:28ampost #55529 of 587408/15/16 at 11:55ampost #55530 of 587408/15/16 at 12:06pm
