I actually liked that blue shirt so much, i bought an exact duplicate. I think it is a sky blue color broadcloth, if i remember correctly. Can't wait to wear it with the navy blue, french blue pinstriped suit this fall:

Damn Foxx - the Brioni MTM just fits you so well. Where were you measured? Do you have any hard-to-fit features, like one lower shoulder?

Breast pocket with a buttoned flap! How do you fit a pocket protector in there now?

The three button down is strong in the trad. It is not so strong in the Italy and took a bit of convincing to get it made.

Is the third button on the back of the collar or on the pocket?

zjpj83--

hey, thanks. I had a great time purchasing that suit, Pierre Lenis at Bergdorf (one of the personal shoppers) did a stupendous job making it a special experience for me. The head tailor at Bergdorf came in for the measurements, etc., and he also does bespoke suits. I remember he did have one shoulder dropped, made the front and back of the suit slightly different lengths, and made some adjustments in measurements to the chest as i recall-- then, the order was put in for the suit and I just had to wait! After finishing with the suit measurements and options, Pierre showed me some of the other Brioni pieces the store had made for their customers (yet discreetly did not reveal the customers' names). I was surprised at what Brioni can do with flannels, tweeds, and various plaids (to include some very "british countryside" cloths). Very cool.

I only hope I didn't f*ck up the suit by having the left sleeve lengthened by a quarter inch, then functional buttons added. You can't tell with this white shirt on, but my other shirts have slightly longer sleeves and the left showed too much of the shirt cuffs. We'll see when I get back in August and try out the final, FINAL product!

Mine is the pocket button. I have heard it the other way as well. I don't think that any of these buttons are as worth noting as the french cuff buttondown that has not even scored one mention.

I'm also surprised.

After the GQ shirts thread and another brewing super fine wool "debate" I think people may just be too tired to fight anymore...
