I kinda like the contrast linings. If I order shirts from you, Carl, I'll be sure to order just 1 of them with a contrast lining

Those contrast linings are particularly atrocious.

Some more pics of the hideous tackiness that is this shirt on the far right of the first pic below. The cheesiness is the entire point of the shirt!




Shirts are all now laundered, and (badly) ironed by myself, but thought I'd take a snap for this thread!

Glenn, great job, all the shirts (my third order, I think) are exactly what I wanted. Fit and the different cuts are now totally "sorted". Look forward to getting more soon.

^ HF, what fabric is the purple gingham? Is that the one you also saw in navy?

What is the collar lining also lining on the shirt body? The skirts? I actually like the lining fabric as a shirt more than the shell fabric.

My memory for fabric numbers is appalling, but I'm sure Glenn (posting here as sartorialexecutive) has the details, and might be along to answer both your fabric questions later. I see there are actually quite a few more pics of my shirts (from this & previous orders) on his site's gallery. I hasten to point out that not all the ones on that page are mine!

This order is all Ringhart fabrics. Anyway, this was the first time I used them. They were quite a bit cheaper than the Alumo and Thomas Mason stuff that I'd used before, but they felt nice enough in the book, so I figured it was worth taking a gamble.

In truth, I'm very pleased indeed. They're not superfine luxury clothes, but they feel soft & comfortable while also feeling like they will wear well over time too. No untoward shrinkage after a wash & tumble-dry either.

I think I'll be tempted to use the cheaper Ringhart fabrics for everyday patterned shirts & my occasional daft ideas, while saving the finer fabrics for core solid colour shirts in a wardrobe. That seems a good QPR proposition to me, at least.

Yeah, well Ringhart are made in India and not as good as the Mason fabric or Acorn fabrics. The Alumo cloth is first flight. I liked that bubble pattern you used for the lining for a complete shirt, very hip. It will be interesting to hear how the Ringhart stuff looks after numerous washings. Well, as long as you're happy.

That'll be the real test, yep.

I don't mind having a mix of different quality fabrics for different purposes. I figure that will give me a broad spread of different options for reasonable overall cost.

I will mind if they don't stand up to reasonable use, and that will be the test of whether I use Ringhart frequently or return to Alumo & Mason.

The quality difference between the Alumo & the Ringhart is palpable, obviously. But it's not as if the Ringhart is bad-feeling/cardboardy (far from it!), just that the Alumo (and to a lesser extent the Thomas Mason) is superluxe.

The Ringhart shirts feels like a typical good cotton shirt from a better department store, except that it fits correctly. For the significantly cheaper cost, I'm happy with that, esp. for patterned shirts where the pattern, and not the fabric itself, adds the interest. For solid shirts, or more special shirts, then I think it's definitely worth paying the extra for nicer cloths.

Of course, price isn't always the key. There's one solid white shirt I have that I don't much like the feel of, post-laundry, and that happens to be from a Mason fabric (other shirts I had made from, I think, the same fabric book, I really like, which strikes me as a little unusual). Fortunate that I don't much like solid white business shirts in general, so it won't get much use!

the fabrics from ringhart will be fine after numerous washings.

the fabrics are made in mills using all of the same dyes, fibers, and machinery that is used in Italy.
