Yes. I either generally describe what I would like, or jot down some of the fabric #s from the department stores.

It looks good, Glenn!
This was indeed mine - I received it yesterday. Here's a full pic:

Vacca maybe. I don't know if they sell them anymore.

I would order them without the label.

damn, those cegos are nice! really like the collars.
post #1165 of 4653
so what is wrong with my label?
that collar is a wide spread 2.75" or 3" point length with a medium weight fusing.

Am I the only one around that is tired of seeing shirts with some sort of printed trim. I have been making shirts like that for over 10-12 years. didn't Robert Grahm make enough of these to satisfy the world?
I had a customer waste close to 20 minutes of my time to find a fancy trim for a single shirt.
Not sure if I would even call these creations..

from dictionary.com
a specially designed dress, hat, or other article of women's clothing, usually distinguished by imaginative or unique styling: the newest Paris creations.

why are you using a cheap 2 hole river pearl button?

Sorry to hear that your customer wasted close to 20 minutes of your time to find a fancy trim for a single shirt, I quite enjoy working with my customers who want to experiment more with their custom shirts. Not all customers want to have the trim on all their shirts but when someone wants something different for their Friday night shirt it actually is refreshing to work out something that works for them and create their own shirt. If someone wants to take their time, let it be, it's their shirt and their money they are spending so why not create something for unique for them.

As for the 'cheap' 2 hole river pearl button, these are actually a customer favourite, as they have a great finish to them (might not come up perfectly on the photo). With 8 colours and finishes you are the first to say something negative.

Custom shirts are something that should be enjoyed and experimented with. The personal cut to each shirt, the fabrics that match people's builds and personalities and those little extra's make them unique creations that a customer should be proud to wear.

I think they're pretty gaudy too.

Mike.
I hope I did not offend you.
It is just that I have been doing this for so long that I get bored of certain "cool" details after doing them over and over.
years ago, it was the monogram that made the customer feel that his shirt was "custom". Monograms are somewhat out of favor. even though I have a woman who makes beautiful small hand mongrams.
then we were cutting underside stripes on the bias.
then I used different sized color matched patterns. etc, etc.
what annoyed me about the customer who wasted my time, was that he thought the contrast trim was really special and distinctive!!!!! and he only was buying one shirt, with a wedding shirt behind it. Not terribly profitable, though I do not like to turn away business.

I still feel that fit and fabric are most important. As others will testify, I have a huge selection of fabrics. Many that work for fun/or evening shirts.
About the buttons. I should have said inexpensive.
I have plenty of the river shell buttons in all sorts of colors. I use a 4 hole as opposed to the 2 hole. I associate 2 hole buttons with women's shirts. I was in brazil and bought tons of them for about $8.00 a gross. a lot cheaper then dyed,or smoke throcas or MOP.
I even have a 3 hole MOP button that is different.

Your pirces for Canada are very affordable. Are you producing in Canada? there are some excellent shirtmakers left both in Montreal and toronto.
