great shirt, too many options. Save yourself the hassle and offer a stock, trademark style, MTM lengths/widths, and then a choice of colors. Would be much, much, much easier and people would still be happy.
Thanks, man. All of the options listed in the OP are for everyone to vote on to determine the single design for all of the shirts. When the shirts are made, the only options will be size (i.e., your measurements) and color. I thought it would be fun to give everyone the chance to have a hand in the design of the shirt. If no one votes, I'll just design it myself Poll coming soon!
Yeah, I'm a big fan of contrast stitching on workshirts, so I just might take that option out of the poll It's funny, oboy- I'm a bachelor these days and it's nice to not have to answer to anyone for my purchases, but I have been reprimanded on a few occasions by my 6 year old daughter for 'looking at clothes on the computer' for too long. who8mahrice- I'll put together a list of other chambray color suggestions and see what Nathan can get.
Nathan did mention something about a super black chambray, but he hasn't had a chance to look at it yet. I am guess this means black warp on black weft, but I'm waiting for him to verify. He's traveling at the moment, so I'll have a list of chambrays when he gets back.
Shirts look great. I'm very tempted. One question, which may be stupid (and get me laughed at by the chambray police) - will the fabric be preshrunk before the shirts are made to our measurements? As I understand it raw chambray can shrink alot - so one would hate to have a shirt made MTM only to find out it shrinks in all dimensions after washing...
Not a dumb question. Nathan buys all of his chambray raw and washes and dries it once prior to making the shirt. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to have a MTM shirt made from raw, unwashed chambray. Then you would have to calculate shrinkage and add to the measurements- way too much work and not worth it.
I would be interested if the details were right. Red is my preference, but white is ok. I think there needs to be a shorter list of options. Things like the buttons - just choose one type yourself. Colour, cuffs and pockets should really be the only choices, just to make the whole decision process a little cleaner. Though personally I'd prefer no colar tab. Either way, I'll be watching this thread for updates.
