I think this is one of there classic patterns. I remember looking at one in a different color scheme and asking Simon what the hell you'd wear it with. He said he had just ordered a few and was planning on wearing them in Jamaica while on vaca. So i guess it could be a cool casual shirt but i dont know how you would pair it with a suit and tie.
You know, I'm not sure exactly what happened. I think she recommended one button until after the first fitting, but then she saw that the collar had to be higher than expected. It's hard to see from these photos, but I can imagine that one button might not have held it up properly. Two buttons seem to fit quite well, actually. I'll try to show clearer pictures on the blog.
I'm all for two buttons on an Italian spread collar, particularly since a Rubinacci will hug the neck a bit higher, like any good Scholte descendant. I think that the fact that AM reassessed how your shirts were proceeding shows discerning and observant craftsmanship, and redoubles my desire to see her when I visit Naples next summer.
Package arrived (and early). Pattern matching to teh max wut wut!!!
Nice selection, the finish looks good to I really like this shirt Anny chance of comparable pictures to the mafoofan selection. I am aware they don't work to quite the same philosophy. But none the less it would be interesting to see what kind of finish you get from who ... Thanks Speed
