Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

start with a sligtly larger collar

 

flip it up

fold the tip back on it self and sew along the edge

badda bing you have yourself a cutaway collar

disregard the button down collar buttons those can easily be taken off, I didn't actually convert this shirt I just did it for demonstration purposes

Do you cut off the excess? It seems like it would be rather bulky. Actually, it seems like it would be rather bulky either way. How does that work out?

on a diffrent shirt I might need to cut off the excess but on the shirt I first did it on it was very thin and the excess fabric acted as a collar stay and gives the collar some shape. If it is an oxford type shirt I would probably cut off the excess fabric.

I'm not an ascot guy, but that's very nice. You might want to conact the OP in this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/312864/are-ascots-synonymous-for-a-hole
Seriously, despite the title, he's looking for an ascot.

^^^that is a much better tutorial, I didn't realize this was an actual thing I though I made it up baldy[1].gif he does it much better anyway, I wanted to go for a more extreme cutaway collar than him though.

Briggs&Riley Luggage

I left this case because it seemed of limited utility given the fixed and numerous compartments, but it was a great price for the brand and its condition. I'm glad I passed through before you did else I wouldn't have found my pristine AE shells.

I didnt see much else of quality there though - picked up a BB sweater and a cashmere PRL for the wife, so you must have picked up the rest of this haul elsewhere - well done.

I wouldsnt have thought so either. But I saw an orphan the other day (too small) and it looked really cool. Plus, Spoo rocked a peaked lapel jobby that was also freakin killer.

Just= joined the forum after reading through 100 pages or so of this thread. Hey guys! thumbs-up.gif Pretty new to thrifting nicer clothes. Here's my haul from tonight.

 

Shirts from Express and Banana Republic. Made in Detroit camo Carhartt jacket. Valentino and Givenchy ties. All for me except the Valentino tie that I snagged for a buddy.

 

Then I went to another store and found this beautiful RL tie. This is a lesser label, correct? I really don't mind since I'll be wearing it. It was 99 cents, and I love it. Also, these Allen Edmonds Glasgow loafers. They're size 8.5 and brown. Is anyone on here interested in them? Or with a little fixing up what do you experts think they could do on eBay? I wear a size 18 but I couldn't leave AEs alone. Details on them below!
