Monogram placement - Page 3

post #31 of 40
From Jantzen, I get them all done on the left cuff. That's probably tres...what was that word...'arriviste', but hell, I'm only still in college. I haven't left anywhere yet, much less arrived.
Besides, it makes a nice conversation piece.

We used to have white peacocks in the so called Torture Garden where everything was made of volcanic materials and insidious grottoes galore like the Villa Orsini.

(That their leaders came from the ranks of the nobility went unheeded by your own advisors). I can't recall which (then) Trad firm ended up with your contract. Perhaps it was Brown Bros. Though I wanted to stay to the bitter end (was there ever an area, even amidst revolutionary activity, with more lovely cafes, cigarettes, and women?), but felt it best to flee. The collapse of your rule coincided (but is anything ever a coincidence?) with the collapse of Trad rule on Wall St.
I believe it was the very proper firm of Leizpig Richfort & Duchas.

The capital had a singular reputation for both the intellect and the libido as well as less streamlined interests, of course.

Was Vaclav one of your subjects?

I don't believe so for every passport was issued with my authorization, my nod to Louis. I have neither bad breath nor am an ersatz critic. I did have Sadakichi Hartmann as a guest before.

I am thinking of having this done with my MTM shirts in the future.

Did the maker complain about removing the identifying label?

Not the ones I have used and from whom I had requested it. None of them were "brands" like Talbott or T&A though.

I have all my Jantzen's inside the yoke. On a few french-cuffed shirts from another maker I have them just above the waist, but will stick to inside the yoke for all future orders.

I think any monogram should be placed where the laundry can see it when the shirt is finished on a hanger. That will significantly increase the likelihood of getting the shirt back if it goes home with someone else, or if it gets separated from whatever tags the laundry uses. This rules out inside-the-yoke monograms for me. If I want a monogram that is invisible when the shirt is worn, I'll put it at the bottom of the placket.
