Monogramming~ - Page 2

post #16 of 50
When I had shirts made, I asked the lady who did them for me, to embroider her name on the shirttail. For the last ten years or so, I've bought rtw.

I don't have monogrammed shirts. However, I do have a monogrammed wallet.

FWIW, my Monogram is not a big traditional letters or diamond shape but rather Jantzen's little pagoda design with my initials inside. I really like to tell people about Jantzen because I think he does a good job, and so I like to have the monogram as a sort of Makers' Mark, so that he gets credit.



Isn't this the traditional placement anyhow?

No, that would be his monogrammed nipples.

+1 except I don't monogram, period. The inside of my shirt has the tailor's label, my initials in block letters and the month/year the shirt was made. They asked if I wanted monograms and I declined.

Your initials in block letters = a monogram

....makes only sense to me if you have your shirts cleaned or even more if you live with a huge family where the male part have about the same size (and taste in shirts) and where the washing is done at home... ...as I live allone and do my own laundry - no monograms for me. But each to his own...

They're printed on the label. I've always considered a monogram as something that had to be sewn-in.

There is a difference between enjoying nice, custom-made clothes and trying to show the world that you have nice custom-made clothes...

Btw, I fail to see the difference between monograms on cuffs and guys who keep the tags on the sleeve of their newly purchased glued suits...

They are clothes. Last I checked, they go on the outside of the body. Don't fool yourself into thinking it's all in your personal pleasure. You wear clothes out of vanity, and so do I, and so do all of us on StyleForum. We also enjoy the crafting and collecting and maintenance of said clothes, but if that was our main priority we would be tailors, not hobbyists.

We wear clothes because we want to look nice, and show the world ourselves looking nice. My Jantzen shirts look custom regardless of the monogram, but I think it adds an individualistic touch that most clothes lack. I am comfortable with the role of my clothing in my vanity. You don't seem to be.

Also, does this really look as flashy as sleeve tags...:
