Hi guys, I really like the shape of the NOBD II collar but I was wondering if it would work on a more formal collar (on a white interview shirt). The spreadsheet recommends unfused but I was wondering if I could make it fused and lined to give the collar more structure, would that be a bad idea?

16708 is the NOBDII (fused and unlined) with .25 longer points (3.5in total) and the comment "soft but with some body"

16830 is Sample shirt geometry with fused and lined collar, with comment "fusible that achieves soft but structured look"

What would happen if I used the NOBDII with fused collar with a fusible like that of 16830?
What if I don't specify the soft look? Just leave it as structured?

Would anyone care to explain the meaning behind the "body" of a collar used in NOBDII directions?

Unlined means that even with fusing it's not going to be too stiff (since there's not a large volume of material to fuse together), so 'body' is just another term for structure, e.g. "soft but with some structure".

Here is my default preference for NOBDII:

 

Collar Band: Light Unfused Lining

Collar Points: Light Unfused Lining

 

I’ve used this combo for all my NOBDII shirts including a white twill for business suits.  The thickness (or thinness) of the shirt fabric more or less plays a factor into how robust the collar is, but I’ve found the lining setup above to be a fine medium for both ties and tie less with a sportcoat. No flaccid collars over here.

What do you presume the result to be if it were a fused collar with light interlining?
Would it be too stiff?
Also- is your NOBDII point length 3.25 or 3.5?

Does anyone have experience with the following fabrics? I'm particularly interested in how well they resist wrinkling.

Many thanks!

Imo, light fusing can be a good thing.  I like it on shirts I'll wear with a suit or those worn w/ sport coat and tie if I'm traveling.  For an interview shirt, like you mentioned, I'd probably go with light fusing.

I have spent too many hours in my life ironing unfused shirts where the collar have started to bunch at the end.

To me the choice of lining depends on the fabric.

I use a version of the NOBDII and for heavier fabrics (e.g. oxfords) I ask for a light lining and fused. For lighter fabrics I just ask for lined and fused.

(To be honest I do not think I would be able to guess which collars have the light lining and which have the regular lining by just the feel and look of it.)

@Luxire; do you have any printed / patterned fabrics in stock which are a suitable weight to make into pants? Just curious about something a little fun for holiday wear (so not too expensive, ~USD100), inspired by the Orange Elephant Print:

Do you happen to have link to that fabric?

Hi

 

Has anyone got this "tag" inside their VBC pants/trousers? Or any tag at all in their VBC pants/trousers?

 

 

post #23533 of 24658

I got a pair of pants from Luxire recently. They look good and fit well when I'm standing, but they pull in the front crotch when I walk or sit.

Any tips on which measurement to adjust?

 

Thigh? Half-hip? Rise?

I'd be grateful for any advice.

 

Cheers,

 

Eightace

Nope.

You might try posting a picture of front and rear views standing in pants, it may help visualize where the fit needs correcting.
