Hmm, I'll consider the lustrous fine white more seriously then. I also have a swatch of the superfine white (200/2), but of the two just mentioned I favour the lustrous one. 

 

Is my assumption that higher number equals a shirt more prone to wrinkling correct? (i.e. that a 200/2 shirt wrinkles easier than a 140/2 shirt)

Pic of the pale blue poplin:

(apologies for the poor pics and ironing job)

 

It really is a nice fabric - light weight, with a very smooth hand. It's my favorite dress shirt, and I really ought to get around to ordering another one, this time with barrel cuffs instead of french cuffs.

Please illustrate your positions with pictures of you wearing the items (especially the trousers - we need more trouser fit pics).

Thank you for your prompt responses.

I'll post some pics wearing the trousers this weekend

This is the fabric. 13-14oz, so quite thick but I wouldn't say insanely. They're autumn/winter flannel trousers, aren't they? Must be warm

Note: I use suits a couple of times a year, for semi-formal/formal events. I'm thinking a white dress shirt with FC for the more formal events. 

 

For the light blue dress shirt I will probably go with the pale blue poplin 2/100 and button cuffs.

I was wondering and finally went for the Lustrous Fine White. It is really a nice fabric. I would choose it over twill if you want dress shirt.

5 Raw Denim Options - Can also be pre-washed and pre-shrunk if desired

post #2369 of 9642

I've heard that a pair of raw denim jeans is not supposed to be washed for something like 6 mos to a year in order to acquire a unique wear pattern. Is that true? I only have plain old OTR jeans.

Would be neat to see some 3-4 ply Oxford fabrics on the site, I'd definitely order a bunch of super heavy oxford shirts!
