@Threadbearer, you are absolutely right. Deep red cashmere/wool tie is on my 'SamHober-to-buy' list. Undecided which width to get.
@ Clarinetplayer: Yes, extremely summery. I had these trousers made out of a heavy linen cloth and was now looking for a way to implement them. Did not work out to my liking. Would not have them made again in retrospect. Linen in winter is like velvet in summer in my opinion.
Shirt is made from a very light weight Egyptian oxford fabric with both collar and cuffs unfused. The buttons are 16 ligne (10mm) and 3.5-4mm in thickness made from Thai oysters. All buttons on my worthy to be patented Übermanschette (convertible cuff) are shanked by hand as well as the top two collar buttons on the placket. The collar has a thin inlay from flannel trouser fabric leftovers.
Total cost of fabric, labour and buttons came out to ~80€ IIRC
