Canada Post is slow, but they are the most cost effective way to ship in Canada. We've looked into pretty much all the alternatives, but the rates CP offer in some cases are more than half the nearest competitor.

It's all good, he sent me pics and now I am getting antsy to try them out. I think size wise based on his info I might fall between sizes M and L. My best guess is that I need the chest of a L but the shoulders, waist, length and sleeves of the M. I ordered medium, might need to change to the large and try to shrink them but we'll see when they arrive.

 

He did mention that he was very impressed with the shirt collar style, construction, and fabric.

Pretty sure this is the Indigo from a post a while back.

This will most probably be the collar for the 100% Irish Linen shirts. We're leaning to Button Down Collar, Front Placket, Left Chest Diamond Pocket, Rounded Cuffs and No Pleats.

 

Last question: Do we cut them shorter to wear untucked?

Here's the indigo one I just picked up earlier today, with a couple of Sharpies for colour reference. Lighting for photo and viewers monitor are two big variables, but give you an idea of it in the real world...

post #3940 of 6676

Hm...what will you wear that with?  A little more blue than I was expecting.

post #3941 of 6676

Jeans and some lightweight summer chinos. Have to look at it against both pairs (tan and stone), but likely both. 

 

Also picked up the mauve, and two polos (navy, black).

 

edit: as I said as well, monitors make a big difference in the colour you see. Looking at it on my phone which took the photo, and on the monitor on my desk, and having the shirt in front of me, the phone is closer to reality, and the blue shown above is a little more saturated than it is looking at the actual shirt. It IS indigo, however, which implies a bit richer colour anyway.

You can wear Khaki, Stone, Grey and Moss green etc.

Here are the 3 colours taken on my phone and colour corrected as best I can in photoshop. The indigo and light blue are very close to reality, the mauve is slightly more saturated in real life.

I am already picturing the indigo with my Epaulet Gunmetal chinos as a quick and easy cooler day combo.

 

My quick Frankenstein haha

The linen shirts seem to already be sold out in a bunch of sizes, starting to get worried as I wait for the madras to drop for bundle pricing.  Will they be restocked or how can I go about buying and holding 2 until I can add a third for the discount?
