This almost excites me, except that you are off by ten years.

Why do you think that classic BB Supima was "sturdy, thick?"

Not sure what you mean by being off by 10years.

the old Pima or "supima" oxford
was woven on older slower looms.
the yanrs are thick 30/1 x 20/2
this is very thick and durable.
much ;longer lasting then the high count fabrics today. 60/1 compact,140/2 and up constructions
are very light. yarn is thin.
there was also minimum finishing on the fabric as there is today.
no synthetic resins, no ammonia, no formaldehyde.

This is sounding good. Please report back when you see your sample.

preview for a pick up. a friend was so kind and took two snapshots in the workshop.

shirt is made by Hirtl, Schwabing, Munich. actually, i let Mrs. Hirtl choose the fabric, so it's a surprise package.

do you prefer your collars that tiny? does it suit your neck and face?

What is the front height on that collar? Looks very short.

tbh, i have no idea. it's the second shirt and we didn't change anything. i'm not in a good mood as i'm waiting for the result of a medical examination and first world problems do not bother me atm. so no shirt measuring action unless i feel better. i'll not forget about it.

Those are nice. How are they for transparency? I ordered a white linen shirt last year from I forget who and it's a little on the sheer side. OK for LIndsey Lohan, not so much for me.

They aren't particularly sheer, actually. The only issue I had was that I decided the collars were too stiff for a relaxed summer shirt. My own fault for not specifying, but Joe Hemrajani, being a pro, has replaced them with softer collars at no charge and they're on their way back to me now.

Is this the "real thing"?
Mercer claims that it is.

I have some RTW that are over 10 years old that seem very "beefy"
They came from the old Hawes and Curtis and T&A. I haven't seen any thing like
this fabric in years.

I hope that it is nothing, G.
You have my best wishes.
