    FYI... Bamboo = rayon.

    I found this:

    Bamboo the plant is wonderfully sustainable; bamboo
    the fabric isn't so easy to categorize. There are two ways to
    process bamboo to make the plant into a fabric: mechanically
    or chemically. The mechanical way is by crushing the woody
    parts of the bamboo plant and then use natural enzymes to
    break the bamboo walls into a mushy mass so that the natural
    fibers can be mechanically combed out and spun into yarn. This
    is essentially the same eco-friendly manufacturing process used
    to produce linen fabric from flax or hemp. Bamboo fabric made
    from this process is sometimes called bamboo linen. Very little
    bamboo linen is manufactured for clothing because it is more labor
    intensive and costly.

    Chemically manufactured bamboo fiber is a regenerated cellulose
    fiber similar to rayon or modal. Chemically manufactured bamboo is
    sometimes called bamboo rayon because of the many similarities in
    the way it is chemically manufactured and similarities in its fee
    and hand.

    Is it also Oxford?
    I think I've got similar shirt done recently. It is not a folded one already, so no pictures.

    Is that a pinpoint oxford, or a regular one? If it's a regular one, do you know the weight (or can you compare it to some frame of reference)?

    I like Acorn's oxfords, but I'd like to try something heavier if I can find it.

    Looks to me like the Oxford 120 range.

    This collar-- the beefy shape, the spread, and the stitching--sets a standard for me to pursue. Simply just excellent.

    since there are no pictures of casual horizontal striped shirts here are some of mine. Not as neatly folded as some other pics but oh well...

    They all are in side vented model with squared bottom meant to be worn casually and usually tucked outside. All 3 have buttondown collars. Ideal for summer in South and West US. All of them go well with summer pants like light colored linens and cottons.

    basically same concept as polo shirts with horizontal stripes.

    cheers!

    Kudos for going against the forum's anti-monogram stance.

    That's a really interesting placement though - is that their default location or did you request it there?
