Standard BD collar. I specified that I wanted a causal collar roll in the comments section, but I don't know if this really made a difference. Also I probably should have specified that the shirt material is the classic grey oxford.

Thanks

Thanks guys. Order # is 8116 and the fabric was Business-Shirt White With Blue Dress Stripes. The name doesn't quite roll off the tongue, but it's a really great fabric, especially at the price point.

I'm thinking of some summer weight trousers for Sydney. One option would be the Minnis Fresco, but I'm thinking about maybe one of the Dugdale 120s/130s 9 oz (I do understand that the super numbers aren't everything). If the Dugdale's were smooth enough, I might be able to get them unlined. The other consideration is that that the fresco weave may have a better texture for casual wear and be longer lasting, but it's hard to say, as a smoother cloth can abrade less in the fork, where I wear out all my trousers. Does anybody have some suggestions? Cheers.

I think I have the Dugdale 9oz, not sure if I would order them unlined, they arent that smooth.

Is that the regular fine worsted? I was thinking of the 130s range.

I have two pairs in the Dugdale Fine Worsted that are unlined. I think they're fairly comfortable. :)

My vote is Fresco all the way. The texture is really great, but from a distance they just look like like plain trousers for the most part and are definitely suitable for business environments. I don't ever wear my Fresco casually, it's just for the office or when I need to get dressed up for something.

Crappy picture of the #1738 collar

post #12176 of 13405
That is one good looking collar.
post #12177 of 13405
Can someone provide pictures of their Dugdale pants so I can get an idea of the smoothness of the fabric? I'm wondering if it's suitable for a Texas Summer/early Fall.

ANYONE ELSE share my thoughts/issues with most collars?

Does Luxire scale the length of collar points and other details with the size of the collar you order?

My huge pet peeve is when the collar doubles back outward near the band, rather than always panning further and further outward toward the points.
If I ask for a NOBD 2 collar with bigger points will it solve this issue?

I have a 17" neck. I'm afraid that the larger your neck is, the smaller the points will look and the less likely they will be to get the lines that I am looking for.

This is the image I want for the front, which is similar to the NOBD 2 collar, I guess:


But, the NOBD 2 collar has this ugly feature where the band area comes out further from the neck than this one area about an inch in from the points:



So has anyone ordered the NOBD 2 with 9 cm points?



also, anyone have thoughts about the various white fabrics the website has to offer?

I've always wondered also - if I reference a collar number, but the guy implemented measurements for his 15" neck, would Luxire adjust the collar measurements proportionally for my 16,5"-17" neck? Otherwise, proportions would look off and collar would look anorexic.

Do you guys order lining in your trousers? I'm about to order my first pair of trousers (in the cheapest mid grey woolflannel available, http://luxire.com/collections/home/products/mid-grey-wool-flannel-100-wool) but I can't decide on the lining. I spend most of my days in the office so it's not like I need to keep warm.
