I thought it had something to do with the slimness of my sleeves not matching the armhole width, but I would be interested in an explanation of Luxire as well.

Also, still waiting for the shipping notification for one pair of chinos, one polo shirt and two OCBDs. patch[1].gif

It's a good thing - my most expensive shirts have it. smile.gif

I'm not sure why exactly it's such a good thing, though. I think Luxire explained it somewhere in this thread.

I asked that to my tailor when the Barba's arrived but don't remember what he told me about it. laugh.gif

Good memory. Explained here

 

If there is one feature that our tailors will thank us to discontinue then it is this. Attaching the sleeve in this method is much more difficult and time consuming than the single straight stitch.

That's really cool, I never noticed that.

 

Luxire -

 

When will you be getting more linen and casual shirt patterns? There's probably 5-6 more shirts I want to orde then I'm not sure any of the other patterns and fabrics are for me.

 

The pants are a different story. I like all of the fabrics.

All of them.

Casual: We have a large number of casual shirts fabrics in stock. Need to upload them. Long overdue. Hopefully this week.

 

Linen: Do let me know the types of patterns that are desired. Will be going shopping this week and will keep an eye for them.

I'd be interested in 65% cotton and 35% linen cloth. Candy striped, light blue /w white, light green /w white, yellow /w white, orange /w white. also solids in white and pale blue would be nice.

 

Linen/bamboo cloth would be nice too http://www.acornfabrics.com/fabrics/summer-weights

Awesome! If you have any pictures of the fabrics and it's easier, post them here! I plan on ordering shirts this week or early next.

Will let you know. Unfortunately I'm not creative, I just know the ones I do like that you have I'm either ordering soon or you are sold out.

Thanks for the prompt response. Can't wait to get my shirts. Went out and got another 12 Container Store hangers for the upcoming and future orders.

 

Oh... maybe a linen/cotton burgundy candy stripe if you can find it. I have one red candy stripe that looks a lot like burgundy on the way (one of the corrections) and the pattern is fantastic but I think the cloth could be softer.

Blue and white patterns in linen (and linen/cotton and cotton...) are always good. You can never have too many choices in that area. Stripes in different widths, ginghams etcetera. Solids in different blue shades, like in the pic, are great too. And other colours as well, of course, but blue is the most versatile colour.

Have you started negotiations with Thomas Mason/Albini yet? smile.gif

Really I think what we all want is just to work with NOBD and get any fabric he wants.

 

Because then we all want it.

This please.

I wish you had more linen shirts with patterns (gingham, check, etc). It seems like the vast majority of your linen is solid or simple stripes. As an example, I love this linen shirt of NOBD's that he posted a couple days ago.

Action shots of the new shirt. Very happy with it, although I have to use collar stays, which I'm not used to.

This is the pale blue poplin 2/100

Well, good news, the shirt has arrived. At a glance, I'm quite happy with the result for being the first time.

Goods
- Fit is nice, shoulders fit nice, chest fit a little big, but since I'm planning to grow it a bit it's nice. Waist is nice and sleeve length is perfect.
- Fabric: I have bespoke shirt from a local store that cost me $3,000 pesos and the first time I wore it, it felt kinda itchy. I thought that for a $60 shirt I couldn't expect more, but the fabric is real nice.
- Construction: I can compare it with that bespoke shirt metioned above and this is contructed way better.

Bads
- The cuffs. I asked for miterred cuffs, but I think I didn't asked for the length of them so they are quite short, but I can live with that. Next order will need to take that into account.

What's next:
- Ask for Finamore collar type (unlined)
- Maybe more tie space
- Shirred shoulder 

- Fit pics, maybe tomorrow but it won't be ironed until wednesday for use until saturday. :)

Pics:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, real happy with the shirt.

Nice one, did you go for a normal collar on this one? I really can't wait for my shirt now.

post #3120 of 12669

What fabric is that? I think it's one of the fabrics I recently ordered a swatch of. Looks great!
