Friends, I’m looking for a Tattersall or similarly patterned shirt approximately in the scale of the one shown.   As it’s to be worn with a countrified tweed odd jacket, I don’t want the collar to be too formal (no wide spreads, e.g.) but I still want the collar points to fit under the lapel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Any suggestions?

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

AC2, it's best to have a look at one of those websites for British countrywear: http://www.bestinthecountry.co.uk, https://www.outdoorandcountry.co.uk, http://www.countryattire.com et cetera.

You'll find many offerings from the likes of Barbour, Viyella, Bonart, Peter England etc. that will fit your requirements.

Exactly what I'm looking for.  A thousand thanks.

Ac, check out Tweed Country Sports (that picture actually look as it's taken in their store). Great quality shirts.

I'd look at a Barbour Tattersal AC

Great quality, very well made and all the colours to choose from

As a former tie thread, two flags:

 

1. This tie came up again 

 

http://www.barneyswarehouse.com/drake%27s-diagonal-stripe-neck-tie-00505036645497.html?index=32&q=drake%27s

 

I quite like it, the blue is a bit darker than stock photo and it is 8cm (3.15) width.

 

 

@Cleav  you asked earlier, so that's how I wear it.

 

1. And...further reduction on this beauty.

 

http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/accessories/neckties/copper-brown-wool-tweed-herringbone-tie.html

 

 

Not sure why this tie is still available.

I think everyone was salivating so hard over the rest of the NMWA sale that ties in general were overlooked.

It can be quite the cultish feeding frenzy there.

@TweedyProf both ties and both fits are very, very nice! The Drakes is not too narrow in your opinion? Looks ok to me...

Yes, the Drake's is 8cm (I measured since Claghorn worried about this last time I posted). I'm sure this is the same tie I have. Untipped, handrolled edges very soft hand and light.

 

I prefer 9cm for most of my ties (or 8.5), but 8cm is just right for wool.

A few questions:

 

1. For double cuffs, should a tall person (6'0 with 25" sleeves) expose the entire cuff or enough to show the cufflink?

 

2. What do you use for hand washing your own clothes? I read some of the other threads, and they recommended a diluted solution of white vinegar and cold water. The problem resides in the MOP buttons on the shirts. Some SFers reported the acid "eating" the buttons.
