post #13516 of 33197

where can I get collars like this

http://www.bivolino.com/en/shirts-style-tips/111/shirts-collars/mens-shirts-collars/293/windsor-italian.html

 

that are not from dodgy internet MTM's?

 

I will pay up to 150 for a really well made shirt, but I don't want to do the modern tailor etc route because they've all had such horrible reviews on here.

If you go on Shop the Finest you can get some good deals on Finamore and Borrelli shirts. They have those big Italian collars.

MAtch the belt as close as you can with the shoes. How light brown of shoes are we talking here? I mean chesnut is the lightest that I would say would look ok.

Rayon is the name for fabric made from reprocessed cellulose fibres. Acetate, Cupro and Viscose Rayon are different types of rayon, differentiated by the method of manufacture. Bemberg is a particular high-quality brand of Cupro, and a trademark owned by Bemberg Spa in Italy who came up with the improvements to the Cuprammonium method which made the fabric comparable to silk.

So is it plant based? I guess so, right?

Isn't rayon in general a half synthetic, half organic fiber to begin with?

It's a semi-synthetic. As Sanguis noted above, the raw materials are derived from woody plants (bamboo is popular right now) and then sent through a chemical process to make a synthetic polymer fiber.

Lots of processing is required, but that's true of most natural fibers as well.

It certainly breathes more than silk. Silk sucks.

I have gotten Borrelli shirts from them. They have the double button. SpooPoker wears a lot of Borrelli shirts so you can see them in his WAYWRN posts.

Charcoal and mid-grey. Black is useless.
