Anyone care to tell me more about the belt? Matt?
It is a Loro Piana rope belt, but it is a few years old. I don't know if they have them anymore. They might at one of the boutiques.

Looks nice. Most of the surcingle-type belts I've seen have flimsy, cheap-looking looking leather.

^^^ Looks good to me. It's interesting to note how much more inset the shoulder seams on my shirt and Iammatt's are in comparison. I prefer my OCBD shoulders to be more like yours.

That's a good fit. I take it you like your BDs to fit quite a bit looser?

I know, and the sleeveheads on your shirts are quite a bit fuller as well. I think mine are more traditional, or at least more common. They way my shirt fits is maybe a bit more snug than Jermyn Street, but it's in the same basic tradition. The way AM shirts fit is totally different. I like them, but they are just cut from a different approach.

Party that, and partly that's just what Carl thinks is right for an OCBD, and he makes my OCBDs. Actually, I think he is right. The stiffer the fabric, the more room the shirt needs. An OCBD that trim would probably be uncomfortable.

The fit of your shirt is definitely of a different character than mine, but it is objectively very good (from what I can see). The line down the side of your torso is smooth, doesn't bunch, and isn't so tight as to create a mini-flaps over your waistband. Those are the same qualities I wanted in my own shirt.

It looks like Carl did you good!

Thanks. I just don't like buttoning that button. Looks too stuffy to me--on me. When other people do it, it often looks fine. I don't know why that is.

My OCBD shoulders are probably a bit too extended for most tastes. But I like them that way. It makes the shirt look more relaxed and casual. A surgically precise OCBD seems even more destructive to the fundamental spirit of the shirt than a double-button collar. I've had really slim-fit OCBDS made before--they were awful. The feel of the thicker fabric hugging and pulling at your skin is not a pleasant thing.

Whenever I wear dress shirt, I wear a tie and jacket so I am not as anal about acheiving the perect fit. As long as it does not bunch abround the waist or back, collar fits fine, I'm good to go.

manton's shirt has a great fit. Is that a Geneva shirt manton?

The arms could be slimmed down a bit, but I would be worried about flexing.

Too much spinach there Popeye. Your body and arms are blown out of proportion.

Did you have a hard-on when you took that DB looking shot? Besides the seemingly large arm hole, your shirt fits great, maybe a bit too much drape.

Nice fit, but somehow I don't think yours are at the slim fitting end of the scale?

You'll notice that both my shirt and Iammatt's are cut so that out shoulders fill out the top of the shirt sleeve. The effect is more obvious in Iammatt's case. It's just typical of the way Neapolitan shirtmakers cut their shirts. The shirts wouldn't look right if the shouder seam extended all the way out.
