Looking for fabric recommendations for light blue shirts.

Does anyone besides Acorn have an on-line representation of their range?

All my shirts are 100% cotton, but are designed to be wrinkle free.

I like my blue twill shirts a lot--but I only like very, very fine twills. The thicker wale ones are maybe my least favorite shirting of all.

It'd have to be a light blue OCBD for me.

I love Acorn's stuff. I have never come across any other companies that are nearly accessable as Acron, unfortunately. Their pinpoint is indestructable.

Thomas Mason has some excellent light blue pinpoints, royal oxfords, and poplins. Have also heard great things about Acorn, and have had good experiences, though my experience with their fabrics is entirely incidental (i.e., through purchase of RTW shirts made with their cloth).

I like Thomas Mason. The Silverline is a decent fabric at a fair price. Personally I rather prefer that level of cloth than the superfine stuff.

Any online shop for Thomas Mason?

Any specific recommendations?

How do people here feel about OC or pinpoints made up not as a BD? Blasphemous?

I was wondering about the stuff with the higher yarn counts, like the Sky Imperial from Acorn (2/170). What are the benefits and drawbacks?

What about Sea Island?

Acorn has a Zephyr line. Were you thinking of that or does Alumo have a similar line?

Foo, who is the maker of your fine twill shirting?

I seem to remember Sterling G recommending a fine twill from Alumo (Soprano, I believe it was called).

From Acorn there are two fine(r) twills; Kent and Prince - I like the look of the Sky Prince.
