According to their tumblr, Caccioppoli also carry it if that is more convenient for you.

Shirt Washing Question

So I've washed some shirts in the machine on gentle cycle and left them hanging to dry. Now that they are totally dry, if I put them in the dryer to soften them up a bit and get out some wrinkles they shouldn't shrink at all, right? Ironing isn't an option time-wise plus I prefer shirts a bit more rugged looking and not crisped up from an iron.

Thanks!

No heat, no problem. Use the low or no heat setting on the dryer.

Holland & Sherry used to have some but haven't seen their books for a while now.

I'm thinking of getting my first linen suit. I'm looking for advice on color (and, if possible, the fabric book/number). I am thinking of a not-too-dark navy, but am open to other suggestions.

I will wear it relatively frequently. The other suits I wear in summer are a single-breasted medium gray worsted and a single-breasted light tan cotton. My sport coats (which I also wear to work) are a gray wool-silk POW and two that need to be replaced: a navy hopsack blazer and an olive wool micro-check.

I'm thinking of patch pockets and maybe brown horn buttons if it's blue (allowing it to be a Blazersuit).

W. Bill (13 oz) and Hardy Minnis (11 oz) are potential candidates, but I'm really looking for any ideas.

Thoughts?

I have the W. Bill slightly lighter than navy linen suit and I highly recommend it. Perfect shade of blue, light enough that it is looks spring/summer but dark enough that it can actually be worn to meetings. Great drape and hand. Mine has patch pockets and horn buttons.

Medtech got three linen suits made from NSM. Worth checking out those pics.

Go with wbill tobacco linen 60154 3 roll 2 with 3 patch or 2 patch/welt, don't even ask for a sample, just call your tailor and order it, it will save a lot of back and forth in this thread smile.gif

W Bill is a good staple, and has some excellent classic colors.

For a significant premium, the London Lounge linens are even better, and there are a handful of colors that you can't get elsewhere. Not that you'll want your first suit to be anything other than light navy, mid/dark grey, or tobacco.
