Nice fabrics! Exactly what I've been looking for recently. How do they handle wrinkles? Is the fabric thick and sturdy enough to not be totally wrinkled inside of 5 minutes?

I have also recently taken the Acorn-nialma route for my Game shooting shirts in the Fife and Kendal Acorn ranges. There is absolutely no creasing/wrinkles with them, one of which contains wool and is too soft to wrinkle. The pricing for me was the same as their black label thomas mason shirts, however they are wonderful. May you confirm your pricing Adagio? I like the photographed blue/red/green fabric - very tempted!

^ Good to know. Thanks 599! Around what price range can one expect to pay from Acorn for the Fife and Kendal ranges? They don't seem to give any indication on their website.

For those using Nialma for Acorn fabrics, did you just specify the Acorn range and fabric number in the comments when ordering, or did you email them separately? Also, can you specify details such as length of collar points?

To place my order I emailed them directly to ask for Acorn fabrics and some other additions. They told me to purchase 3 "black label" shirts on their website (£89 each) in the designs I would like. I then told them the Acorn fabric codes I wanted. It did take almost two weeks after ordering, which is a bit longer than my first order with them. You should check the price with them because adagio (above) mentioned the price was the same as their premium range. When you buy 3 shirts you get one free, which means I ended up with 4 Acorn shirts for £274.99 I am not sure about the collar points length, sorry. Best of luck

Thanks! I'll check if Acorn sells fabric directly to consumers as I'd love to perhaps bring some in to my tailor depending on the price per yard.

They had a special offer last month. Two black label line shirts for €149. They had already told me that the Acorn fabric would cost the same as their black label line, (not premium as I said above). I was going order three shirts as you then get one extra free, but I just went for the 2 for €149 in the end, since it was my first experience with them. The fabric took a couple of weeks extra as Acorn did not have the Fife range in stock.

Shit, hold on everyone, I just read back through the thread. Apparently Corniche thinks these shirts are in bad taste. Please don't order them. You may offend him if you do. He's been here for two months, so he obviously knows what he's talking about.

I'd be interested to know if they sell fabric directly. Keep us posted!

They do and can send them in small lengths suitable for one shirt. Email them for price list, quite reasonable

Two relatively new bespoke shirts from Freddy Vandecasteele.

The blue stripe was just picked up at Freddy's, so you can see the difference between a shirt pressed once by the cleaners, and one freshly made.

The plain blue is TM goldline - the striped shirt came from a book with mixed origins.

What's the advantage of TM goldline over silverline for something like a plain blue shirt? Is there something objectively better about goldline fabrics?

Higher thread count. Very nice against the skin.
