    That really is a bit too much.

    I can't imagine why you wouldn't make the sleeve a lot smaller, especially with the torso cut so trim.

    Have to think you'd also have a much better range of motion with a smaller armhole and narrower sleeve.

    Hey guys

    Was searching about gathers on sleeve head. And I found myself in this forum.
    I recently did a shirt with gathers on sleeve head and cuff. Would it be ok if I post my shirt here and hear comments about it?

    Also, is gathers still popular in Italy or is it just a trend.

    Thanks in advance for any pointers.

    Regards

    Definitely still popular, not just a trend.

    I've only seen it done by Italian shirtmakers, but as a picture posted earlier in the thread was by a shirtmaker from the Netherlands, clearly it's also done elsewhere.

    I have "grinza" on shirts by Borrelli, G. Inglese, Finamore and Cordone. I think that it looks best when the "wrinkles" are small - if they are large, the effect tends to look overdone and, as others have said, a bit feminine.

    shirring at the sleeve head usually looks affected.
    If done improperly, It looks like a women's cap sleeve.
    I saw a recent Luxiare shirt that looks this way.

    I like shirring at the sleeve /cuff attachment and across the yoke.

    it can look very dramatic.
    if you see "Gentlemen's guide to Love and Murder on Broadway.
    you will see a white shirt that we made,in the second act that has this detail.

    Go See "Gentlemen's guide". it has not opened yet.
    it is a lot of fun and the clothing is great.

    Giliberto made the men's suits.


    a non-iron shirt can not have that feature, since all of the seams on Non-Iron shirts use fusing tape.

    That almost reads like a poem.

    I am far from poetic.

    mostly the fact that I am not a good writer, with no regard for grammar or punctuation.
    I would be lost without spell chek

    hence, the reason i am in the garment business.
