Very cool.

 

badsha: Yes, that's right.

Thanks Eustace. Prices are very similar to Alumo, may be a bit more.

Ok, which one you clowns sent Mr. Bonfanti a message under the name "Seymour Butts"? smile.gif

Unfortunately no. May be vintage Alumo in NY.

Who made them?

Those look very nice. You sourced the cloth directly through Bonfanti? or the shirtmaker?

A shirtmaker I sometimes use for casual shirts, Ciriello http://www.principedigalles.jp/vestito/camiceria/ciriello.html, http://www.ciriellocamiceria.it/ . Should you consider ordering from him I suggest clearly specifying you want a soft unglued collar , at least that's what I do.

I sourced the fabric directly from Giancarlo Bonfanti.

Anyone order the Voile or the Levanto = Chambray?
post #72 of 78
I purchased fabric from the New York, Belfast and Etamine ranges, all of which are listed in the "Voile-Zephire" shop. I've had shirts made from the NY and Belfast cloth and like them a lot. But you have to like light, very fine shirting. If you looking for BB oxford cloth, forget these. All are very light in weight and sheer but not see-through. NY is broadcloth, Belfast is Twill and Etamine is textured like an oxford but I don't know if it is actually considered an oxford weave.

Thanks. New York is 170/2 so assumed it will be light weight. Hopefully I will like the cloth. Looking forward to trying Levanto as well.
post #74 of 78
Then you should like the New York. It's a beautiful fabric for its type.
post #75 of 78
Fabrics arrived. Will post photos tomorrow. New York (Voile) and Levanto (Chambray). Voile is pretty thin, like G&R Luna.

New York (NY1082X) Voile 170/2
