Was this your concept, B, or had you seen this elsewhere?

we have been making those for years
paul Stuart calls it their Cooper Collar.

we always called it an Italian sport collar.

can be made to be worn buttoned up with a tie as well.

No, it's completely standard type of collar...ye olde Hawaiian shirts are made with camp collars.

Here's Dino:

dopey wrote in the NSM thread that Dege made these for him and called it a Lido collar.

Mine have been made without a top button, so no tie for me on these.

^^Are all of your NSM shirts made of the same fabric? They appear to be different to me even though all are SG.
post #3171 of 4538
Ah, yes. I had forgotten about those. I think I even owned a shirt with a similar collar a number of years ago.

Some of the run of chambray that I got was darker in color than the others, and we used these for the popovers.

ASW had a little bit of a chambray/voile S-G mix up once.

I have both.

Dege made up the voile. The voile has a dressier finish.

NSM made up the chambray. The chambray has a more rustic finish. Among the chambray lengths, some were darker than the rest...I had the darker ones made into popovers, the lighter into semi-spread collars and camp collars.

Do you have any photos of you wearing the camp collar shirts yet, or will these not be worn until your next vacation? Thanks,

That would be a "no" and then a "I don't know."

Does voile work well in the summer?

Classic voile is super see-through and sheer. So yes, it could be perfect for summer if you want everyone to see down to your skin. In a voile dinner shirt, the front has an extra layer or layers of fabric, as do the cuffs...and you typically don't take your jacket off. The same principle is used for dress shirts: doubling up the front. But, all bets are off without a jacket.

The SG "voile" is nearly opaque. So, it's not like the usual voile, but it still is ever so slightly sheer.

I find most shirt fabrics serviceable year round...what I vary are suits, jackets and pants. I realize, however, need all the help that they can get.

But:

There's little consistency in individual microclimate. One man might feel most comfortable in a diaphanous ensemble in the heat of summer: light shirting, unlined fresco jackets, and a fan on at all times. Another, however might need an oxford cloth shirt layered up with a lined jacket to sop things up away from the skin.

Frankly, it is about the last thing for which the opinions of others are useful. You have to try things for yourself.
