If you're going to use 100% cotton, it'd better be decent cloth. fit is ok, but sleeves are way too small in proportion. I dont have big arms but feel like i am gonna hulk out. That DM collab shirt is their best one, fabric is actually ok and colors are nice. i will probably take a punt on the DM gingham next year, but do yerself a favour and avoid their other shirts and just save up for Mikkel Rude instead.
Claudio of DNAgroove does very nice shirts as well. Now his collars are HUGE, which will not be for everyone. But he does use high quality 100% cotton shirting cloth and MOP buttons, a nice touch on a "scene" shirt. Fit is very good, and nearly same as Mikkel's.
Cheap shirt material - ugh!

Again, I'll do the 'Scottish are mean' thing:- we're not, like everyone else... we demand 'value for money' (VFM), and we (collectively) get let down.

I reckon a serious number of 'original' clothing offerings are shit... move on, buy something of quality and avoid crap 're-brands'. (Shitty imports striping us up!)

The originals on here speak sense - avoid cheap imitations.

You can get shirts with 3 finger-length collars easy if you request it from him (I think it's the Siena model, if I recall correctly). The fact that he offers shirts with larger collars has made him stood out of the crowd, but that never meant he didn't sell any other type of shirts, that's some misinformation that has been spread around.

(And you can always ask Claudio if he a certain material, pattern, colour, type, for a shirt available, fo example I don't think oxford shirts of any colour are available @ showroom, but you can request those most of the time).

Talking about shirt's why is it so hard to get shirt with a bit larger sized stripes, like the kid in the middle here:


Modern day Ben Sherman do one, but the collars don't have a nice roll and are 2 fingers big... (and it's modern day ben sherman...)

dave, remember those "paul weller" ben sherman shirts they did about 6-7 years ago? those were wide striped, iirc had the proper size collar etc. never got one myself, but they looked ok.

just recently got a striped s/s from Claudio that is quite good, wide striped with a mix of bronze-brown, light blue and burgundy. smart color palette

and yes yer right, he can customize aspects to the design, i was going off the general selection on his site, for s/s shirts I think there is only one collar size (4 finger).

i found a Gant striped bd last year that looks very similar to the guy in your pic but in a burnt orange colorway instead of green. but similar wider stripe with a muted color. soft oxford cloth, 3rd neck button, back pleat (not sewn down but can be done so easily)

Relco are doing a candy striped shirt now. £25 from an e-bay seller, free postage too.

100% cotton. I don't normally recommend cheap shirts but I do like this one

You can see the collar size here. Not Brilliant but an easy 3 finger roll.

 

 

Shame it's only available in Black and white. Would love to see a burgundy, or a dark pink.

That relco is a blatant rip off of the ltd edition Bengali stripe that Fred perry did a couple of years back.

It looks great if you want to look like a referee.

you cheeky bleeder biggrin.gif,

 

Beetlejuice is a good un!, I was expecting Convict or Mime artist/1950's ice cream seller..

Is this the Fred Perry you had in mind.. I've seen this actual shirt in the flesh after a couple of washes and it was pretty shabby to be fair.

Terrys is a nice shirt, but the perry is bobbins. And it's about £90.
Have you ever washed a relco shirt? I got a couple when hey came out, for work and they washed terrible, looked like searsucker and shrank.

Dunno if they're any better now. Think warrior are the same shirts tbh.
