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.post #6619 of 1884012/12/13 at 10:53ampost #6620 of 1884012/12/13 at 11:09amQuote:
Do you have any more standard bengal stripes from Luxire? Going to be ordering one soon, trying to decide which fabric.post #6621 of 1884012/12/13 at 1:14pmpost #6622 of 1884012/12/13 at 1:45pmpost #6623 of 1884012/12/13 at 1:56pmQuote:
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"post #6624 of 1884012/12/13 at 2:06pmQuote:
I too would like a full body shot of it if it is not too much trouble (face blur or whatever you wish).post #6625 of 1884012/12/13 at 2:52pmQuote:Originally Posted by aravenelQuote:

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.post #6626 of 1884012/12/13 at 3:02pmQuote:

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.post #6628 of 1884012/12/13 at 5:02pmpost #6629 of 1884012/12/13 at 5:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by Beatlegeuse

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.post #6630 of 1884012/12/13 at 7:02pmThanks 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.
