    ^ Elegant collar choice NYR. Non-fused collars?

    Thanks, yup. These last few have been done with a much stiffer lining, which i like as well.

    rob. why the seam on the left of the seam task?

    Never noticed before, just how he had them done, I'm always wearing these with a tie, so not really an issue for me, though I may ask him to remove it on future shirts.

    It is called defensive shirtmaking. it keeps the fronts a little cleaner when mediocre laundries attempt to mis-press.

    the workroom that Ercole uses can produce a french front with out a top stitch.

    are they really sea Island? or just 140/2?

    Freddy does a very nice job.

    You're right, i do think they were 140/2, the other houndstooth was sea island...

    As for the defensive shirtmaking, he also put pleats in the back for the same reason. The cleaners down the block from him (that was EXCELLENT, but $5 a shirt) changed ownership and is now average.

    Excuse my Banana Republic as I'm just beginning my satorial journey. [​IMG] I like their non-iron slim fit shirts and I'm on a budget. I do wish they had collars with more substance.

    As for the tie, it was 40%, and it don't know if it would be SF-approved, but I liked it alot and I suppose thats all that matters in the end. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys!

    I think I might prefer the last one I got, but then I haven't worn this one yet.

    While Barba (at least this line) has less handwork than Borrelli and Finamore, I'm beginning to prefer them as they fit me better out of the box.

    Agreed - Freddy does great work; they are by far the best shirts I own.
