    Well, Carl happens to think my shirt is terribly wrong.
    IMO the only thing that is terribly wrong about this shirt is its disturbing transparency...

    And the fact that he keeps showing his cleavage. It's time to button up mafoofan.

    No mention of the knobs?

    This is true. Please, mafoofan, remove your balls. Thank you.

    Well, he is getting married soon, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    I really like the fit in iammatt's photograph. I would prefer a wider shoulder though. But I understand that this is the Neapolitan style.

    mafoofan's fit is nice too, but I can't help but think it could stand to be a little smaller in overall dimensions. While iammatt's shirt shows of his flat abdomen, mafoofan's shirt seems to make him look frumpy (when he clearly isn't). I am sure these shirts look better in real life though. Pictures tend to emphasise imperfections.

    Still think the front of iammatt's shirt would look better pattern-matched, but we've already argued that one to death. [​IMG]

    I thought someone would have to be a fool to post in this thread, but I think Matt wins on all counts. I especially like the belt. I'd love to know where to find something like it.

    A couple of examples of shirts I think fit quite well (at the slim-fitting end of the scale):

    I think these pictures are important due to the numerous jantzen/herm./ascot chang/chan posts...

    So far I think Matt's slim fit shirt looks really good... I wear a watch, so I wouldn't want the cuffs as tight, but it looks great on matt. I do like pattern matching, but again, just personal pref.

    More pictures are definitely welcome... Thx

    It is a Loro Piana rope belt, but it is a few years old. I don't know if they have them anymore. They might at one of the boutiques.

    Looks nice. Most of the surcingle-type belts I've seen have flimsy, cheap-looking looking leather.

    ^^^ Looks good to me. It's interesting to note how much more inset the shoulder seams on my shirt and Iammatt's are in comparison. I prefer my OCBD shoulders to be more like yours.

    That's a good fit. I take it you like your BDs to fit quite a bit looser?

    I know, and the sleeveheads on your shirts are quite a bit fuller as well. I think mine are more traditional, or at least more common. They way my shirt fits is maybe a bit more snug than Jermyn Street, but it's in the same basic tradition. The way AM shirts fit is totally different. I like them, but they are just cut from a different approach.

    Party that, and partly that's just what Carl thinks is right for an OCBD, and he makes my OCBDs. Actually, I think he is right. The stiffer the fabric, the more room the shirt needs. An OCBD that trim would probably be uncomfortable.
