I avoid my Borrelli shirts cos i hate buttoning it up...its painfully difficult.
Kiton has nice large buttons and commensurately large button holes.... and very very easy to button close.

Regards.
PS. Cant believe I just put this much effort into buttons....

eh? this is all horizontal i.e collar cut the regular way (warp stripe lines around neck) if it was cut on the weft (opposite to usual) the stripes would have been vertical on collar thereby making it much more clashing. (at least for middle and right shirt)

This is a 2d pic so you see stripes on collar appear to be coming vertical... whereas others are horizontal. Imagine this on a body, the collar stripes will be perfectly horizontal along the back and sides. The yoke on middle shirt and on right is traditional i.e. horizontal stripes. Only the far left is different because shirtmaker forgot my instructions.

I like the buttons Chan uses for their shirts [the thick ones, you have to ask for them]--they're full-sized 18L (rather than the smaller 16L like most pearl buttons), shanked [sewn with one, not the button itself], curved on the back, and fairly thick. The front is concave but it's done in a way that makes them appear shiny from more angles than some other buttons I've used. I suppose I should take a picture, maybe next time.

I was at Geneva last weekend and they had some stellar looking Alumo cashmere/cotton blends for Fall. Does anyone have shirts made from this fabric?

^ Not yet, although I saw these on my last trip to Geneva as well. A few on there are definitely on my list for this fall.

The fact that they're dry-clean only makes me pause, but for a real indulgence they could be just the ticket.

Geneva is really touting Alumo these days and dissuading people from Mason. Prices on Alumo seem to have dropped, either that or they just never were as high as I assumed them to be.

Just at Geneva or across the board? I was surprised at how affordable they were, relatively speaking. I had thought it would be much more expensive.

No gingham, though.

Just at Geneva. The only other maker I have any recent experience with is CEGO and I have not ordered Alumo from Carl.

Alumo fabrics are not expensive (especially considering the quality). We sell Alumo fabric shirts for similar prices to the likes of Ringhart and Acorn (and the Alumo are much nicer fabrics IMO)

Yes, it is 120's oxford. A very nice cloth.

Late reaction. Yes: 120/2.

I'm not about to get through all the pages ... but as for the few I did see ... I find the amount of truly delicious shirt porn to be minimal. Come on guys ... put some va-va-voom shirt porn out there ... something that will really turn us on.

I say no more "last call" shirt porn ... lets limit it to the really good stuff.
