    Not to mention the obvious issues with back balance and sleeve pitch.

    I'm a little worried about those BD collars. Looks like no tie space and no roll.

    Stripes on the second one do not look vertical either.

    All, thank you for the comments!
    Beautiful Andrey! That blue gingham is stunning - any close-ups of the collar? Seems very soft.
    Sorry, no pictures so far (and the natural light is already out today). I will try to make one tomorrow.
    How is the fit (compared to your Budd shirts)?
    Again, sorry, but I don't know yet... [​IMG] I just unpacked the shirts and tried them. No obvious problems (to my untrained eye). But a slow thinker like me needs a few wearings to understand what feels better / worse in full.
    +1 those look great. How many fittings did you require?
    *I* required? Actually, it is Leonardo who tortured me with fittings for death! [​IMG] As I recall, three in total.
    What is that last blue one made of? Gorgeous fabric.
    First one (solid) is Alumo wool + cotton. Feels incredibly nice; we'll see in winter how well it acts. Second (striped) one is some italian mill (Bonfanti?) Third one is a Swiss mill. Forget the name. [​IMG] I choose it primarly because I have a shirt from a similar fabric (same maker, same type of cloth, different check) that Leonardo made me last time. I LOVED the cloth, and wanted another one of its ilk.
    I'm a little worried about those BD collars. Looks like no tie space and no roll.
    Me too. Here is the story: by default, Bugelli makes a BD collar with a PLENTY of roll. Too much for my tastes. So, I asked him to make one with less amount of roll. Which he did. But in reality, after unpacking, things are more plausible, both roll and tie-space wise: [​IMG] Andrey

    Just went to pick those up from my shirt-maker : Lorelli, Geneva. Cotton Fabric provided by Alumo. Excuse the wrinkles at the back of the neck, a question of cardboard not fitting properly. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Adrian

    Fabric can be obtained from any shop that carries the Alumo fabrics.

    Those Loreli ?¿? Got my fav roll on the collar.

    I only wear shirts that does that visual effect. Congrats!

    By the way, how is that effect achieved? I only see it in neapolitan shirts.
