I bought one linen shirt previously and I'm pretty sure the material was genuinely intended for drapes... it's like burlap. Totally useless.

MT has a real issue with keeping fabrics in stock so I don't know which of these are still available.

In fact I would buy a lot more shirts if I could buy fabrics I'd purchased in the past.

Anybody have good luck with solid white twill fabrics? I'm looking for something that is a bit heavier with a subtle texture.

I really like the shirts, but the one thing that makes me apprehensive about ordering is the fabrics. When I order, I feel a bit like I'm gambling on the fabric, since I don't know what the texture or weight is going to be.

On my third shirt (made from a nice twill fabric), I got the measurements dialed in and it is by far the best-fitting shirt that I own. It would be hard to go back to shopping around for OTR shirts when I know I can order a perfect-fitting shirt with a few mouse clicks.

The first shirt I got was made from the blue oxford trial fabric. I didn't like the fabric because it's extremely wrinkle-prone. The second shirt I got was a remake (since the measurements were off) -- for some reason it was a lighter color, lighter weight fabric which isn't nearly as wrinkly. While I'd like to get more shirts made from oxford cloth, I'm a bit wary of them because I don't know what the result will be. For example, there are four white oxford fabrics -- how does one choose which one to use?

It would be nice to be able to get a good fabric sample book, but that's not enough... since there are over a thousand different fabrics, it would also be essential to be able to tell from the description what each fabric is similar to in the sample book.

Well some people actually ordered this fabric - though some of our prints which look outrageous to some are used for collar lining for a bit of style ... especially if they are linen.

So in this case, we'll keep this fabric around because people have different preferences and perhaps purposes. Cheers!

Could you discount the fabric book at all?

Also, are there any SF discounts right now?
