Ah, the vagina cutaway at that!

Great shirt, on sale now at RL (I think for around $160), I bought a few while they were on sale, and my wife made me take all but one back . . . claiming they just didn't look right, and she's right, on me they didn't. Oddly enough, I have a fairly regularly shaped head with a longish chin/jaw, so you'd think this would be the perfect collar to downplay my chin.

Re: the CT cutaways, they're not nearly as broadly spread as the Keatons.

I get a kick out of people criticizing CT quality; the CT shirts I last ordered were around $65 each. At a third the price of Pink, and about a fifth the price of T&A, they stack up pretty well against those two brands.

Cantab,

Thanks for clarifying what those curved collar shirts are called . . . I've always wondered, and now I know what to call them when I rant about how they have caused the downfall of modern society. ;-)

FYI for the Kabbaz shirt hunters: Pat Riley's shirts are said to be done by AK.

Since you're in NYC, any of the custom shirtmakers there can make you this kind of collar: CEGO (the most affordable), Paris, Geneva, Kabbaz, etc.

First off, I was wondering if any of ya'll know where I could get my dirty mittens on an Udeshi -- be it online or in person. I'm in NYC, so location would factor into my search (No, I'm not flying to England for a bloody shirt!)

And on a side note -- :shivers: I just don't like peak lapels


Hi all. First timer here.

I think the person pictured here is Al Bazar, the eponymous owner of a great clothing store in Milan. The shirt in question is probably a Guy Rover, their most popular shirt and one that always comes with this collar. In fact, Guy Rover shirts come supplied with an extra collar and extra cuffs, such that you can replace them after they get worn with age. You also mentioned a desire to find them in "slim cut". They come cut slim automatically and fit me, with a 31" waist, perfectly. They're great shirts in terrific fabrics and at a terrific price, roughly €110.

I don't know where one can buy these shirts outside of Milan. I visited Al Bazar in Milan and bought 4, but I also know that they don't like to ship via the mail. You have to visit Milan to buy from them. But I do love and recommend Guy Rover shirts if you can find them at a retailer near you. I may even buy a few more on a visit to Milan next week.

You can see more pictures of their shirts by visiting www.guyrover.it, which will redirect you twice to a website with more information.

Hope that helps.

I think french cuffs are de rigueur on extreme cutaway collars. Looks odd with button cuffs in the pic (and unbuttoned to boot ).

I got a CT shirt as a gift about 4 or 5 years ago and it's held up really well. If they still make their shirts as well, then they are a terrific value, IMHO.

You are way off on one point. This guy's name is not Al Bazar (sorry, I'm cracking up over how silly this mix up is), that's the name of his store. His name is Lino Ieluzzi. He's a bit of a sartorial fashion god in Japan.

I will not worship someone who can't even button their cuffs.

My bad. I met him while in the store, but since I don't speak Italian, I guess I didn't get the story straight. It is him, though, right?

The Shirt Store in NYC used to stock shirts with the "Riley" collar and now have something called the "Jordan". Custom shirts approach CEGO prices, so I would go with Carl.
