Folded Up Shirt P0rn - Page 59

post #871 of 4653
Somewhat off topic, but I took most of my shirts to the laundry to have them cleaned and folded as I go back to Chicago in a week and will be taking them with me. Was this a particularly bad idea? I'm beginning to consider kicking myself for not just taking them with me (though it seems sorta nasty) and just having them laundered out there.

It seems that since M. Dumas retired the people running the show are taking the company into another direction...I just hope that the workshop on FSA maintains its standards until after my order is finished.

Now what about those Lanvin pics?

Why weird?

Tres hip. That's a beautiful dobby/jacquard. Is it cream or white taken without a flash? What do you intend to wear that with?

Glad to see some here have taste. It's a very light cream. It should go fine with dark suits.

For some reason I thought I ordered it with French cuffs but it came with button cuffs. I can't be sure since it was a bit of an impulse purchase.

If the FNB look is what you are going for, this shirt gets you 2/3s of the way there.

Go wear a black suit. If you want to troll me, I'm sure our friends on the more advanced forum are already attacking my choice of cloth.

Actually, it looks maybe more Austin Powers. Are the cuffs ruffled?

BTW, add the black suit, and you almost have the full FNB. All you need is blue shoes.

Couldn't bring myself to buy them from the EG Kurt Geiger sale. I'm just not upper class.

It's an elegant shirt. Is this an archival fabric or something they have made especially for them? I would rather that had been with French cuffs (Although, let us see the button cuffs). Any way they could send you material or reserve some and, after you wear it three or four times, have them switch the cuffs? Of course that would go well with a dark suit. I envisioned it for mostly casual but frankly, it might be office wear too, the jacquard having become rather popular across the board of late as a "custom" or natty touch.
