Buttondown Shirt Porn: Joe's Tailor (Singapore) Thomas Mason Silverline - Page 4

On a trad BD, there is no interlining, making the collars very soft. The roll is simply a matter of cutting the points long, and positioning the buttons higher than where the tips of the points would naturally fall.

Where are these available for purchase online?? Though i agree that the collar looks awkward, I love the houndstooth.

So I was right, or damn close to right.

Thank you, o great sartorial and political light, he who posts pantsless photos of himself on the Internet.

You can't prove that.

^ I don't need to, as we have seen in the Palin-Africa thread in CE. Nothing is what it is proven to be if the observer is revolutionary enough in their beliefs.

Well, according to the Institute for Nonexistence.....

Or in the words of the immortal Criswell at the top of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, "Can you prove it never happened?"

Thanks Carl. Could you clarify the above though? I'm not sure if I understood correctly.

The houndstooth is from Thomas Mason Silverline; look for someone who carries it and hopefully has that pattern.

JP - did you "fix" the collars before shooting the pics? Seeing how soft the collar is not having any interlining, perhaps you need to spend time adjusting the collar over the tie to make sure it sits and rolls properly (i.e., the look could greatly improve if you stuck your fingers between your tie and the collars and "set" the collar correctly). Hopefully this is the issue rather than on the construction. Otherwise, it appears that in fact, the collars aren't working out (a la Vox and Manton's examples).

Lots of roll: Less roll but very soft: I like them both ways, but the lack of tie space you have is killing the shirt. The Borrelli collars are really nicely shaped, but IMO are a bit too stiff.

Generally I hate the button-down-collar/tie combo.
But this look is rather digestible

First three are Kiton (or Kiton for Oxxford), last one is Borrelli. On all four, I had the buttoning point for the collars moved to where I like...this is a dangerous operation with a high mortality rate.

But I don't wear button downs so I'll keep out of it now.

Thanks. You should wear them, they're great.

Exact on the last one, close on the first three. Essentially all the same: Neopolitan RTW.

First, love the first jacket (well, like them both, but especially the first)...part of a suit, correct? Do you recall what fabric?

And as for the collars being stiff...all the Neopolitan global RTW have fused collars, AFAIK, so yes, a bit stiff compared to good old pre-Marks & Spencer Brooks Brothers. BB collars after that became stiffer, and once BB moved from NJ to NC, very stiff...stiffer than the Italian stuff. The fusing on the Italian stuff is at least well done.
