    I live in Phoenix. I still have August, September, October and half of November.

    Are you going to be able to see the black label shirts in-person? The construction seems fine, but my main issue with them is that the patters are too bold, making it tough to wear them with suits and even sport coats.

    BTW, they are still double needle.

    Here is a pick of one that might appear conservative on the website but isn't as much in person. Notice the detailing in the fabric. I find that I can't wear any of my black label shirts to work. I wear them out at night instead.

    Yeah, ignore my comment then. Your summer season is half the year.

    I wish it was only half. I get to wear nice comfortable winter clothes for three or four months. The rest, it's rolled up sleeves and anything that's breathable. SUCKS.

    Hmmm, good to know. Is that a picture of this one?

    Was also thinking of:

    http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/men's-shi...q=gbpdefault||BK248BLU|||||1861,2166,||||||||
    http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/men's-shi...q=gbpdefault||BK253LLC|||||1861,2166,||||||||

    If the website photos are a bit misleading, I may reconsider.

     The one I posted is from last year, so I don't think it is the one you referenced. The first 2 look good. I'm not sure about the chevron though. I would zoom in and make sure they look ok. Here is another one with texture:

    DECLARE YOUR END OF THE MONTH PURCHASES!

    Alright folks, you've been waiting 25 odd days for this. Let me see what you'll be purchasing.

    This is to be my reward for July:

    I'll be taking August off but will be back--should MoL not--in September. Which I suspect will be a very challenging month.

    Those are gorgeous boots, Clag. Not my thing but I can appreciate them.

    Eventhough I failed the shoes, I will buy this ones tomorrow.

    Deerskin tassels. This received a lot of hate in other forum but I liked them a lot.

    Hober order I've been waiting all month for. Four ties plus some swatch sets. Can't wait.

    Also planning to build out my odd trouser wardrobe with some additional purchases from Luxire once I get my light grey Minnis fresco trousers (FedEx says they're coming on Tuesday) and can send them notes on what changes to make.

    Does this mean no August NPC as of now?

    Not really an "end of month" purchase but in case you were wondering where I ducked off to this month I picked up 2 TOJs

    No August NPC unless MoL wants to pick it up. This month kind of burnt me out (guilt guilt guilt guilt guilt guilt on all of you)

    Just ringing in late. I made it through without a scratch. Not one cent spent.
    Thank you Claghorn for the hard work, especially during July where attendance is usually its lowest. You pulled off a small miracle for this month and kept everyone striong, and thank you!

    Already August 07 now, so you rest, I'll rest ...and all the boys here can run wild for awhile.
    Hope everyone is having a great summer.
    I'll do the October club, unless you recharge your batteries..hehe..but for the next 2 months I want to enjoy the warm weather away from my computer as much as possible.

    Congratulations to all who prevailed, and to those who didn't, prepare to try again in October.
    Until then, spend wisely with your newly found discipline.
    Cheers! :)

    Edit...
    If anyone wants a specific 'Theme' for the October,
    please private message me with suggestions.
    Does Gunny return? or someone else?
    You decide.
