Wore the Maroon flannel shirt for about one hour. 

 

Already got called a table cloth. I corrected them - it's more of a picnic blanket, I think.

Drakes for the win!

If it's for the win, then it needs to be properly sized icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nothing crazy. I did the standard semi-spread collar rather than button down. No pocket or placket and a one-button cuff.

I really really wanted to do a semi-spread but it just seemed so wrong to me with the pattern. I'd be interested to see yours if you ever take a picture. No rush though, not like I'd get another shirt of the same fabric.

 

The good thing with the button down collar is, if the buttons don't annoy you, the unbuttoned collars tuck under lapels pretty well. I kept that in mind.

I hear you. Just thought it would be a bit different as almost all my other casual shirts are BD. I like how it turned out. I will take a pic next time I wear it and post it in the Luxire thread.

I added some Drakes ties to my collection- a few will end up on B&S

@PhiloVance

Great stuff

Do you happen to know the p2p and waist width measurements on that shetland?

Also, how do you plan on wearing that red gingham? Tough to wear because it's so loud

I think the red gingham would look great with a navy SC and crunchy knit tie. Definitely a spring/summer look.

I've had this smaller scale burgundy gingham in my queue for forever... hard pattern to wear

Hey All!

My first post here . Wanted to share my most recent purchase too! It was just dropped off to me early this week. My bespoke sport coat:

- custom lining
- surgeons cuffs w/ diff coloured contrasting button holes
- full canvas
- matching colour underneath the collar

Cant wait to rock this soon!

I don't think it's necessarily hard to wear. Just would be difficult under an odd jacket. Use it for your causal days. @jrd617
