Who is it from then?

I'm not sure there exists a correct fabric for a buttondown with no placket with single link cuffs.

But it's one of those 'is the King of France bald?'' sort of questions.

Why not look at the the OneShoe for some inspiration?

 

- Works with jeans and suits

- Needs help at highest levels of formality (and lowest, lets be real)

- Doesn't appear on WAYWRN that much, but is classic.

 

Spread collar single cuff does not achieve any of this.

 

Reality is that the OneShirt is a BD, placket front, BC, end-on-endish fabric blue shirt. Needs a white FC at the high end (and a polo shirt at the low end) to complete the wardrobe.

At least in America, that's actually a pretty good argument.

Abe, you seem to be confused about the nature of foo.gif threads.

There is really only OneThread.

The subject matters ostensibly differ but the true purpose is to, through a series of rhetorical questions and petty arguments, drag you ever-so-slightly higher up the steeze chain while reminding you of your lowly station.

Know your place and be grateful for the crumbs that fall from foo.gif's Saarinen.

The element of foo.gif threads I find most interesting is how long they ramble along after he's abandoned them.

Indeed.

We're simply vultures picking over the carcasses left by Foo Lion .

Maybe this thread should be called, "The emperor's new (polyester) clothes"

Does anybody have any experience with Tessitura Monti chambray? I was told it's 100% cotton, and it seemed pretty good to me. It is very light and very thin, somewhat sheer. It might not be a true chambray, but it looks and feels good. I don't think I can recall anybody mentioning it in this thread..?

Very nice, NOBD.

Incidentally, does anyone know what Foo ended up going with for his OneShirt project?

Hah, excellent timing! And, impressions? How does the Tessitura Monti wear? I didn't see this hairline stripe, just solids.

that is a hairline not chambray

is the monti chambray a dress shirt version or a casual version?
can't tell with out a photo

Thanks, Carl. Hairline it is. (It was called summer chambray.)

Mymil: I wore it a few hours out of the package yesterday and the weave is quite dense (correct my terminology if it doesn't make sense, Carl) in the way that it doesn't stretch at all. So, it's quite smooth and light, not springy. This might be Indian Monti, not Italian Monti; I don't know for sure, and I don't really know what that means. It's certainly not French, though smile.gif.

Update: and it's a bitch to iron. smile.gif

I hate shirts that are a bitch to iron. If I was going to have only one shirt, that would be on my list of criteria.
