Is there any shrinkage in the linen/linen cotton? Not good that I ask after I order my shirt, but hey.. better late than never.

HUGE headaches while ironing the blue bengal stripe. Not that it was hard, it was rather simple. But the optical illusion of the closeness of the stripes hurt my eyes. :-X

 

And the summer chambray collar was tricky to iron but not hard. I gently ironed the fabric towards the neck of the collar. That's really it. If I messed up at all, a bit of water helped, then try again. Took 5 minutes or so. 

 

Unfortunately I may send both back to add about an inch to the arm pit. The shirts were good in that area until we messed with the split yoke, then they got tight. Been messing with them ever since.

What collar is this? "NOBD2"? This looks great.

Here you go. Was trying on the other one at the time. Different shirt/sport coat.

No, it's the NOBD. :-)

 

I wonder what royalties he would have if we DID pay $10. Luxire?

OK, one more NOBD-collar question--what's the distance between the points? Looks like about 4.5 inches?

In other words, we know the length of the points--but how are we determining the angle of the spread?

There needs to be a new thread for all NOBD questions. It won't be just one more question.

post #3742 of 13240
There really does. Or at least one consolidated post that can be linked to.

It looks great, and I loved that movie where you and those other two villains fought Superman.

In either case, it screams casual. I included the close up texture photo so you can get a better sense. If business casual for you means the ability to dress down your pants like that, then I think you'll like it. I'm going to be a wrinkled mess in but an hour.

 

I think this was meant to my mate, Beatlegeuse lol8[1].gif

 

I think you got the measurements absolutely perfect, those shirts look nice!

Yes, very nice, relaxed fit on your shirts, atoms.

I haven't specified the distance between the points. Perhaps they could deduce it from the other measurements and the scan? (I'm not much of a geometer.)

I prefer steaming in general vs. ironing.

As for your stiffness, try adding back pleats (middle or side), you can still keep back darts if you have them, but the pleats add the extra material when you reach and pull you arms forward.

I've been considering that but I think on a custom shirt you shouldn't need them. But, alas, I may have to give in. All of my shirts are a little tight while reaching forward. I sacrifice it, no big deal. As long as they're ok in the armpits. 

 

Just want to give a huge shout-out to Therese for always changing my order when I need it. They've had my shirts for about a week working on them and I just got two new shirts yesterday and told her the measurements were not going to work. She was able to contact the factory in time to have the sleeves changed. You are awesome!

Of course, there is better solution call the "murse", but I am deferring that to separate discussion.

That plaid looks amazing. Does it wear pretty heavy? Would you suggest it for a spring/fall?

 

edit: I don't think emptym will respond unless you PM him. That's from like, years ago. Or a year ago.
