Bespoke shirt, reinforced placket- does it make a difference?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Guys, I have just learned about a new bespoke shirt maker in my city (Warsaw/ Poland). Emanuel Berg is on the market for some 15 years making RTW and MTM shirts, but they are doing bespoke since recently. This is the sample shirt. They do test shirt with firs order, the fabric is DJ Anderson, MOP buttons, spit yoke etc. One thing I see for the first time is the reinforced placket. Can anyone explain what difference does it make comparing to ordinary placket? The maker seems to be very proud of this feature of the shirt, maybe they're making much ado about nothing? What do you think about this shirt? placket reinforcement

Tommy likey. Tommy want wingy.

I think it's very nice. Not sure how much the strengthened placket adds, but the shirt looks like it's well constructed.

RTW around 120$

Looks like a good shirt. Nice details. Would be be better if the stripes matched up on the sleeve head.

What do they mean by reenforced placket?

Apparently it was made deliberately. The same sort of stripe unmatching like at the jacket lapels.

Beautiful shirt. Love the buttonholes. The first time I saw a reinforced placket was on my shirt from Freddy V. in Los Angeles. I asked him about it, but forgot his answer. My guess is that maybe it prevents the bottom of the placket from getting ripped open, which, although I've never had happen to any of my non-reinforced plackets, I could imagine happening since that area sees a lot of motion. Still, even without it, I think the buttonholes could help with that function.

What is the thread loop at the bottom of the placket?

^^^

On my 1 Borrelli shirt, the reinforcement is about 1/3 of the way down from the top. Below the reinforcement, the placket is stitched closed- to the right in this picture; above it, the placket isn't stitched closed- to the left in the picture.

Very nice shirt. The sleevehead looks like its lined up fine, just rotated a bit.
