    Still and all, I can't remember the last time I rolled up my sleeves.

    About two hours ago for me - and they'll be rolled up all day.

    I actually find the no gauntlet button easier/better to roll up sleeves. I take the cuff, unbutton it, pull it up about twice it's length (so that I have some shirt sleeve below where I pulled up the cuff) then roll up the shirt sleeve to cover up 90% of the pulled up cuff. A little cuff shows right below the elbow of so.

    All the pro shirts have that button. In fact I have never seen a shirt without that . Even 20 euros shirts got that!

    I get my shirts without a gauntlet button. I never use it on my RTW so why make a shirt with one?

    I suggest the following experiment:

    Proponents of the gauntlet button should write something obscene on their forearms, undo their gauntlet buttons, and then go about their business as usual. If, after a week, nobody comments on it, we can safely assume that the button is redundant.

    Why worry about gauntlet buttons, then?

    BTW, I happen to know that kid the other one wrote about and he (Does one mark a genus for kid-N, since, strictly speaking, it does not have a sexus below a certain age?) assured me that he only exists in the internet, just like the vast majority of internet users.

    Just went to pick those up from my shirt-maker : Lorelli, Geneva. Cotton Fabric provided by Alumo. [​IMG] Adrian
    Excellent! And, I really like the stitch on the top button. Nice touch.

    Nice fabric, Adrian! Mind to share which range it comes from? I fear it might be from the Soyella line.
    Sorry SG, I usually don't bother to know from which line the fabric is. The shirt maker knows it. I am more of a "I'd like to see the Alumo fabrics, ohhh, I like this one, would you plese make a shirt for me with it" type of guy.

    Mine (Thomas Mason Zephyr) is coming in this week. What fabric is yours?

    Edit: just saw on the site that it's a Thomas Mason Zephir too. Mine might be darker.

    But Alumo has the line name printed in bold letters above each sample chart. I guess I'm just too curious or too much of a cloth-geek to overlook this, then. Still, a very nice fabric!
