Shirt Opinions Please (pics)

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Due to either an error by a certain shirtmaker, or more likely due to an error of my own, I am now the proud owner of the pink shirt pictured below.  As you can see, the stitching around the buttonholes and the buttons are a nice blue rather than self-colored which I typically order. Although this will limit the shirt's versatility, I tend to like the look (though I haven't thrown on a tie and cufflinks yet to see how it works).  In your opinion is this an interesting touch or a subtle distraction? Thanks, Henry P. Boogers p.s. - I haven't talked to the shirtmaker yet, and expect no issues with them.

I dig it. Very cool. Who was the shirtmaker? I want one.

If they're not overdone (and I don't think they are in this case), contrasting details like button holes can be a really neat, subtle touch. I wouldn't wear it as a business shirt or to any sort of serious, dressy occasion, but it would work great as a casual shirt with jeans or worn to an evening party.

I like it. I would wear it to work, though I'm in a forgiving industry (entertainment). It's unfortunate that this certain shirtmaker made a mistake, but I think it's a good mistake.

What kind of buttons are those? I'm sorry, but they don't seem to match. Or is it just the flash?

The buttons are a very nice MOP, I think the flash made them somehow look yellow. I am hesitant to mention the shirtmaker since I imply it may be his error....let's assume it was MY error and I will tell you it was Jantzen.

I am really liking that shirt the more I look at it. Do you have what you ordered written down anywhere?

I will join the chorus of those who like the shirt. I think it's happy mistake.

If I remember correctly it was Dobby 95: Dobby 95 I think it's collar 15, but a touch longer than standard.

Many members of the forum have previously referred to that fabric as "Hermes pink." I think there was another thread praising that fabric as beautiful.

I like the shirt, but i'm a sucker for pink I recently got myself a pink Barba and the color looks very similar to this one, the contrasting buttonholes etc. are just a great mistake. However, I would make sure the shirtmaker knew it was a mistake so he takes a bit better care of your next order

add me to the group that votes yea for contrasting stitching..i've bought rtw paul smith shirts with same detailing,albeit because of this feature..i don't mind it on a few shirts,but wouldn't want it to be a signature of my dressing style

I think it looks good, and a nice touch of individuality.
