    Is true what Dopey write, is so important lip chatte! If is woman you not know so good, if you just meet this woman, if you have doubt if chatte is clean, you can to put pellicule (plastique) on chatte before you lip! But no put chambray on chatte!

    I must to advise for moast poasters of styleforvm, is possible you must to lip moar chatte, then you will no be so excité for thing like chambray, and you will to be excité for beautiful woman!

    And so it was, God was so disappointed in StyleForums' attempts at OneShirt that he made them unable to understand each other. :(

    Interesting that Miller's Outpost has come up in this thread. I remember the name well. As I recall, they were primarily, if not exclusively, a western wear shop. In the Greater Los Angeles area they mostly seemed to be out in the hinterlands, not the areas I frequented at the time. I had a few chambray shirts, although the struck me as being a tad rustic, and I used them mostly for shooting and hiking.

    MO was not a western wear specialist, as I recall. The stores were decorated in a faux old west style but they mostly sold clothes that were cheap but (supposedly) hip.

    I liked this thread, but as of the last few pages it has become my favorite.

    Was the exact cotton/poly content of the now-infamous SG stuff ever figured out? Is it like an 80/20 blend, or something as extreme as 55/45?

    80/20, I'm told.

    My favorite part of the video was when :foo: used a strip of a t-shirt as the "control."

    Crappy old t-shirt received for free when a freshman :foo: signed up for a Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Card whilst strolling through the Brown U. quad = definitely real cotton.

    Simonnot Godard (established 1787) chambray, the price of which has been bid-up ridiculously by #internets #menswear #fanboys = melty polyester.

    How on earth would I have signed up for my Southwest rewards card while strolling through the quad in 2000?

    And for your information, the control scrap is from an American Apparel t-shirt. I only burn the good stuff.

    Now we really have reason to doubt whether polyester wasn't in that t-shirt.

    Those poly-cotton blends are more durable than 100% cotton tees, I don't see any reason why the same wouldn't be true for dress shirts.

    man, if only Riva made a poly-cotton blend. Then Foo could have waited at least another year to post this thread.

    I'm sure there are aesthetic, traditional, psychological and practical reasons why someone would want to avoid polyester, just saying durability is not amongst them. Riva is a luxurious and delicate fabric anyway, if foo wanted durability he would have gone for something else.
