Folded Up Shirt P0rn - Page 267

post #3991 of 4528
Just being objective. The handwork is good (especially for people used to English shirt-makers like myself, where a shirt is machine-made, though it must be said that this handwork is a norm in Naples), but the fit is, to be honest, quite bad. Far too loose all over. This, coupled with the fact that I asked for white collars and cuffs, and didn't get them. Minor detail I know, but I was looking forward to it.

Why is this cheap? I think it's friggin' awesome and may have to try it out.

Big +1 here too, I'm very interested!

P.S.: I'm sure this was raised a million times before, but just my humble +1: I'm pretty much bored with all these photos from ebay stores... I frankly don't understand -- what's the purpose of posting all this crap?

Shirt purists tend to believe that if you want to wear cufflinks, get a double cuff smile.gif

But, I do like nifty stuff, so I decided to give this a go.

Convertible cuffs can even turn up OTR occasionally:

While I can appreciate an observance of tradition, I agree with your position on the nifty.

Very cool. Who's the maker? I have a casual fashion shirt which has a faux convertible cuff, in that there is a fake button hole sewn on the same side as the button.

Salvatore Piccolo. While it's a fun detail, it's not something I'll be seeking out as I don't really plan on using it. Didn't even know this shirt had it until after I'd bought it :-)

Fair enough. It seems like an interesting enough little detail to try once though.

Had a couple of shirts made like that - useful in theory, but less so in practice. A link vs. a one-button cuff are at opposite ends of the formaility spectrum, and I never found a need to have a shirt play both roles.

Did they send it to you? I'm still waiting for mine.
