Folded Up Shirt P0rn - Page 9

post #121 of 4541
In the spirit of the red tie thread, here is a red (and white twill) shirt to resurrect the folded shirt porn. Post 'em if you got 'em.

The oxfords!







Due to a miscommunication, these were originally made with French cuffs, to my horror. Ginza Tailor were very apologetic and changed them. On the bright side, this means they'll make you anything, however outrageous.

Similarly, my previously posted dress shirts were made with plastic instead of MOP buttons and have now been returned for minor surgery.

That is indeed nice.

Wow, that's the only Frank Foster shirt I've ever seen! Looks very nice. It's odd that more shirtmakers don't use a shanked button for the collar. Thanks for the picture.

Interested by the Frank Foster. Kudos to him for the shanked buttons, which is certainly not usual among the British bespoke makers, unless the customer so requests.

Here's my contribution, picked up yesterday. Charvet orange cotton zephyr and one I'd wanted for a while, a white cotton with a dragon jacquard weave.

Amazingly, Charvet matched what must be very difficult patterns to match on this shirt -- the photo of the placket demonstrates.



And with that, the day of the prodigal was over.

Do you buy normal clothes any more?

I like those rounded collar points. Dunno about the dragon jacquard, though. Maybe you should have gotten a cat head pattern.

You're still jealous about the Fred Astaire intarsia cashmere sweater, aren't you? The orange zephyr is pretty normal, and I have Courtot making me a white linen shirt. Poole fit my light green cashmere tweed hacking jacket today, and apart from the supremely luxurious fabric, you can't get much more normal than that. Were I to indulge in illbred dimestore psychology, I would say you resent that someone has the creativity to depart from your conservative business dress hegemony.

You noticed! Lanvin did them too, but I think Charvet captured what I wanted better (although Lanvin's seem to work very well).

Knowing Charvet, they probably have one. They had some odd, odd patterns in their swatch books. I have been meaning to suggest that alll their fabric room needs is a cat for a while now.

Strong the folded shirt-fu is today.
