    i'm in a similar boat trying to find some nice patterns..

    i'm looking for some smart thin vertical stripes in greens and reds and i think you could do well to find something like this yourself. my favorite of yours is what looks like blue, white, and probably brown striping in the last pic you posted, on the left pile, third from bottom.

    where are the nice fabrics right now people?? my usual go-to spots are lacking at the moment..

    ...Hence me asking if there were any suggestions for colors/patterns to add in ;-)

    Big checks. You don't seem to have any. Also no "country" shirts, like tattersal.

    Yeah...was thinking I needed to move beyond my comfort zone of White & Blue...Not sure how my next workplace will be as far as adhering to the "CBD" standards (think only white and blue are given the thumbs up for shirts? ;-) ) - however a green or red stripe shirt sounds like a good idea - just have to decide on whether I want it for business or casual (the hem) The Blue, white and I guess brown striped one, is a SS/Flat Hem, a few days ago looking at it again, I ordered that fabric for a French Cuff Shirt - hope it turns out ok ;-) I was thinking since half my suits are subtly stripped (one a faint pin strip, the other a shadow stripe), that I couldn't wear striped shirts with them - looking at these suits again, their striping is pretty subtle - could I get away with wearing similar thickness striped shirts with them?
    ... Big checks. You don't seem to have any. Also no "country" shirts, like tattersal.
    Doesn't look like I have any small/Medium checks either...maybe its because of seeing most checks on bed spreads,drapes or ill fitting shirts during childhood, that is putting a mental block on these patterns - but I'll try to order some this weekend (in something other than blue...maybe :)) What makes Tattersall shirts country-ish? This shirt seems normal to me, well...don't think I like button down collars or really that color for this shirt - but other than that what makes it a "country" shirt? http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/,...eeve_-_For_Men

    Preparing for the Fall. A new shirt from a localish, value-oriented shirtmaker. Lovely MOP buttons. Please excuse the shitastic photography.

    Red. And navy. I'm not positive, but I think it's Thomas Mason Silverline.

    The navy I sorted but the lighting makes it seem pink. Very nice.

    damn this economy! chickened out on the first shirt (wasn't sure about the color and texture, and BOY it is expensive!), but I bought the second shirt pictured.

    What collar style is that? Looks much nicer than what I got from him. Also, what fabric family? Not seeing any linen/cotton blends on the site right now.

    The collar is the number 6 "classic spread" with longer points and a higher band. And a 1/2 inch of tie space. It's my first time ordering this collar, but I think it'll work for more casual shirts where I might not wear a tie some times. I normally order the number 4 english spread for shirts I will mostly wear with a tie.

    The fabric is from the Monti Prince Rose collection, Zaffiro Linen/Cotton 120s/2.

    great looking finamores! I actually had a finamore shirt not long ago that I ended up selling, only because I wasn't sure I could get the sleeves shortened by a good tailor at the time-- really like the look and construction of these shirts.

    Those Finamore's are gorgeous[​IMG] Today's arrivals. Last 2-3 orders were more basic and ordinary, so I threw some shirts that I felt had a little more "color" so to speak in this round. [​IMG]

    A forum favorite[​IMG] ......... Jantzen. Of all the bad reported here, I will have to say I have had nothing but a pleasurable experience. I will just chalk that up too luck, I suppose.
