A nice mention in Departures - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Hi Alex, Beautiful shirts. I have never seen mother of pearl in such colors. Are these dyed or rather that's their natural color from the shell? Is there a wide range of natural MOP colors? Thank you.

MCA - Thank you. Regarding your pearl button questions, the answer can be found here, with pictures: http://66.170.193.77/cgi-bin....5;st=80 Edit: (Down towards the bottom of the page)

Enviable life story. Hey Manton, are you going all Machiavelli on us?

Always have been. I just figured out how to use the avatar function.

(mack11211 \tPosted on Feb. 26 2005,19:43) Facing the last page of the AK story is a full page ad for Ascot Chang, which is unfortunate for them.
True story: Back in 1982 or 1983, wet behind the ears and trying to figure out how to get some clients, I decided I would advertise. Gathered together all the few pennies I had and bet them on an ad in Avenue Magazine which, at the time, was at the height of its success. I breathlessly opened the issue, looked with pride at my ad, turned to the opposite page, and saw page one of the feature article about the world's greatest shirtmaker ... Turnbull and Asser. Spent the next two months explaining to callers why my shirts were only $10 cheaper than the greatest in the world. I haven't advertised since. And you are over-the-top correct about the art direction. One of the best I have seen.

1415 posts later he figures out the avatar function? I know he can turn a phrase at times, but hey, guys, let's not bet the future of the free world on this fellow's ability with words.

Perhaps an 80% discount for those who work at nonprofits?
jester, brilliant idea.

Dear Jester and AlanC, Though I respect nonprofits greatly - as a matter of fact, despite our valiant efforts to the contrary, our art school would certainly qualify as one - we're trying to keep the shirtmaking as a plain, old, American Dream capitalist member of society. After all, something's gotta support all those children learning to paint and sculpt.

For me, the niciest shirt on the picture is the blue one (on the left page, not the one with contrasting cuffs). Alex, could you post a bigger picture of that shirt? Also, what are advantages/disadvantages (aside of purely aesthetical ones) of "flapping" pocket that shirt has? Andrey

I can't post a larger photo yet because the magazine still has not returned the shirts. Soon ... I hope. The pocket flap is a flap that buttons. As such, the advantage is that nothing can fall out. On that which most older men still term "sport shirts", the double pocket with button flaps is pretty much of a "tradition" ... although I would defer to Manton as to whether or not it are a "rule". In today's lexicon, the more common catchword is "casual" ... and the tradition has become more of a style option. Unless, of course, the shirt is a "Western" in which case the two pockets with button flaps ... or bezun ... is a Rule.
