Not sure which one will that be. If the quilted navy flannel then it is in finishing. Pictures possibly tomorrow.

+1. 

 

hoodog: the fabric is http://luxire.com/products/light-blue-bengal-stripes-100-2 (as it says on his blog).

 

Looks great, will probably get this in my next order.

 

I have this fabric too. It's one of my favourites. I find it sits somewhere in between a more typical width bengal stripe & a wider butcher stripe. Very nice indeed, and quite an unusual width/spacing compared to the standards either side.

My third shirt shipped today. Turnaround-time is incredibly fast, well under two weeks for me.

Do you have any more standard bengal stripes from Luxire? Going to be ordering one soon, trying to decide which fabric.

Wearing my shirt today with NOBD collar and I have to say its a nice collar

It's spread but still good with Fih knots and looks nice with top button unbuttoned too

If it is not too much trouble, can you provide a fit pic of the NOBD unbuttoned?  90% of the time I am wearing dress shirts without a tie and was wondering how the NOBD would look.  I am skeptical that it would frame the face in a way that makes it looks "fatter"

I too would like a full body shot of it if it is not too much trouble (face blur or whatever you wish).

Not yet, it's one I keep an eye out for each time I order from them, but so far, no sign. I'm probably going to try this one: http://luxire.com/products/blue-dress-stripes at some point, though. The stripe looks to be a bit thin, but acceptable for a bengal, but ideally I'd want the white and blue stripes to be the same width. There's also this one: http://luxire.com/collections/dress-shirts/products/indigo_bengal_stripes which has the right width & spacing, but the blue is too indigo for me (and I'm not sure white in between isn't actually a pale grey), so I'm not planning on trying it.

Thanks, quite helpful. Agree with both of your points--I prefer my stripes to be of equal width and the second one is too dark.

I feel like I'm missing something obvious, they have to have a "normal" bengal and dress stripe.

These look great.  I love university stripes.  What kind of button down collar did you go with/specify?  I'd be curious to see these with a tie.

Thanks AAS. I wasn't too specific with the BD collars, I just asked for a nice roll and sent them some pictures of collars I liked. They're pretty good at looking at pictures and then making something similar. I'm going to get these cleaned this weekend, and then next week I'll probably wear a tie with a few of them. I'll post some pics of how they look with a tie.
