Gathered shirt shoulders - Page 2

post #16 of 29

it doesn't necessarily have to look like this, but it can turn out that way.

Was this what you asked for, and was expecting?

not a fan..
we have done this and sewed the fullness in by machine.. no hand work.
in fact i will bet there may even be a row of machine stitches in the sleeve set as well on the first shirt shown.

the second set on cravate noir. work for him
as he has very wide shoulders and a very narrow chest
but the armhole seems too deep for this technique.
the idea is that the armhole is smaller and closer to the body, while the fullness of the top sleeve allows for movement

I doubt this shirt is acceptable in polite company of any sort. On the shirt looking girly I believe this is a QED

That really is a bit too much.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't make the sleeve a lot smaller, especially with the torso cut so trim.

Have to think you'd also have a much better range of motion with a smaller armhole and narrower sleeve.

Hey guys

 

Was searching about gathers on sleeve head. And I found myself in this forum.

I recently did a shirt with gathers on sleeve head and cuff. Would it be ok if I post my shirt here and hear comments about it?


Also, is gathers still popular in Italy or is it just a trend.

 

Thanks in advance for any pointers.

 

Regards

Definitely still popular, not just a trend.

I've only seen it done by Italian shirtmakers, but as a picture posted earlier in the thread was by a shirtmaker from the Netherlands, clearly it's also done elsewhere.

I have "grinza" on shirts by Borrelli, G. Inglese, Finamore and Cordone. I think that it looks best when the "wrinkles" are small - if they are large, the effect tends to look overdone and, as others have said, a bit feminine.

shirring at the sleeve head usually looks affected.
If done improperly, It looks like a women's cap sleeve.
I saw a recent Luxiare shirt that looks this way.

I like shirring at the sleeve /cuff attachment and across the yoke.

it can look very dramatic.
if you see "Gentlemen's guide to Love and Murder on Broadway.
you will see a white shirt that we made,in the second act that has this detail.

Go See "Gentlemen's guide". it has not opened yet.
it is a lot of fun and the clothing is great.

Giliberto made the men's suits.


a non-iron shirt can not have that feature, since all of the seams on Non-Iron shirts use fusing tape.

That almost reads like a poem.

I am far from poetic.

mostly the fact that I am not a good writer, with no regard for grammar or punctuation.
I would be lost without spell chek

hence, the reason i am in the garment business.
