The edge stitching, in contrast, just continues from collar to band to placket with no interruption.
I hope that makes sense.
It's a summer or beach-y getaway shirt.

noice b
=)

and it does make
for a perfect casual shirt

"visible topstitching on a coat is considered bad taste": it is?

He'll have to post a pic with a tie so we can decide for ourselves.

i think y'all
are picturing the collar
lying flat on the body
but it will not
unless you press it that way

it should stand similarly
to a collarbanded shirt
look at the exterior stitching

I wonder if he takes recipes to (Asian) restaurants.

While this can be a little time-consuming, it also forces one to think about every single aspect that goes into suit/jacket making, which makes a pretty educational experience.

Sketched, but didn't cut them out. That was hymo. lol8[1].gif

You would understand though if you met that tailor. Above average technicians, but poor/suspect stylists. Think iPhone vs Android.

AFAIK the only 'Asian house style' one would (should?) go for would be a totally inoffensive (or if you are feeling somewhat less kind, bland) one - like the offerings from Chan or Peter Lee. Totally nondescript in terms of styling, with the only thing elevating them above other tailored clothes their (usually) excellent fit. None of that extended front dart, swelled chest, waterfall shoulder, columnar style, English drape, etc etc schmitter schmatter.

Not to say that's a good or bad thing per se. Everyone picks their poison.

Despite carping/snarking from members who patronise European tailors with and for their distinct house styles, some of us are/were limited by geography/budget, and what I've learnt while earning my wings still stands me in very good stead now that I have moved on to better tailors. In particular I think I'm better now at picking out deliberate styling choices on the part of the tailor by myself, as opposed to the process being a received pronunciation with either the tailor or SF providing insider info.

Just my 0.02 wink.gif
