7 out of 8 of these shirts are ugly AF. Surprised at Carl, who I like, and who recently called out another user's ugly shirts in this thread....
I like all the stripes, the checks less. But thats personal preference. These shirts are all "normal", as opposed to the shirts previously in question, which were kind of costumey. Theres a pretty big difference to me, but eye of the beholder, etc...

Glad to see this thread revived. What are we dealing with here, LordSuperb? I like the colors of the shirting that you chose. But unsure about that green one. Summer shirt to be worn sans jacket?
Two denim shirts to go with my f/w sport coats.

Two linen/Cotten shirts for year round wear.

The green stripe is actually acqua and will be used for my cream linen db and tan linen sport coat. It also goes well with a future unfunded liability.

I was actually thinking of that exact jacketing of yours as I was typing my prior message about the "green" shirt. Who are you using as your shirt maker?

Just curious, which of my shirts is not ugly.
Terry
none of those shirts are ugly!

IN all seriousness to those reading this, Mr O'conner will take a patterned shirt, patterned tie, patterned sportcoat and solid trousers and pull it all together better then anyone I know.

I do like the turquoise stripe. Which fabric is that?

The lavender striped one.

Based entirely on "that's the one I'd wear" criterion and nothing else. Because I had to pick only one and I like the color.

That gingham isn't exactly sedate or formal, but if you have the complexion and you're wearing the right coats over it it'll look great. Strange how busy, varied patterns like that look awesome in context.

The three solids are Albini Thomas Mason Hampton 140s Royal Oxords while the striped is Albini DJAnderson Zephir Lino 170s.
Stunning shirts! Had never even heard of these before - what a great height of the collars!! Power-collars!

Luca has done a great job on my dress shirts. It’s all I wear during warm weather. I’ll task him with some casual linen button-downs (polos, where I come from) next.

For starters, learn proper spelling and grammar if you want any credibility.
Rule #1: Use a comma to separate independent clauses linked with coordinating conjunctions.
