    This is quite a dark color. I'm curious how you intend on wearing it, with a jacket or not?

    With two different jackets:

    I have some pictures of the process which I can post later, if you're interested.

    I was going to say "yes please", but you beat me to it: many thanks!

    Sleeves and the hem came out a bit short, didn't they?

    Yes. The sleeves were replaced after a few wears and washes (I took some time to find out if they were too short) and the hems of my later shirts are longer.

    Mr. Etemadi (singular is with one t and without the end-s) was born in Iran, son of a shirtmaker/tailor, and has been a shirtmaker and alteration tailor (hope I'm using the right term) in The Netherlands sinds 1979. He measures, makes a pattern, cuts the fabric and sews the shirts. I have some pictures of the process which I can post later, if you're interested.

    Website: www.ettemadis.com
    Blog of his son Amir (who cut the collars of these shirts): http://ettemadis.blogspot.com/


    Just browsed a bit on their website and blog; have you had anything else made by them (in addition to shirts)?

    I took some time to find out if they were too short.

    they look quite alright, but i have to admit, i prefer them on the shorter side...

    more concerned about the shoulders, if i were.

    Psies.

    I like the seam on top of the shoulders, and I don't feel restrictions. I have changed several things since that shirt, but not the shoulders, I think. So, no need to worry, fritzl...

    Hehe. You'll never see the gauntlet button: I'll always wear a jacket or roll up my sleeves.

    i reserve this as running gag for me.

    honestly, give the "Wiener Manschette" a try next time. you still can wear it as you're used to and the second hole is "invisible" like the gauntlet, promised.

    NOBD, am I mad for wanting to improve my nederlands faster in order to be able to try your shirtmaker for one of those nice club collar numbers?
