    Like the Geneva - how tall is your collar?

    My cleaner started putting these little cardboard "do-dads" (sorry to have to use such technical jargon here) on my shirts. They keep the collars neat and prevent then from getting crushed while carrying them. The little "Thank You" puts a smile on my face when I reach for a shirt. [​IMG] I like them!

    It also reminds me of when we were in Florence. I sent out my shirts and they came back with a similar cardboard insert in the shape of a tiny bowtie.

    Not these Eustace. They came out of one of the books. They are English brushed cotton twills. When I picked these up, I ordered 2 Loro Piana linen/cotton striped dress shirts as the model above and an all linen raspberry/white check with a button down collar.

    Nice - I just got a new Loro Piana linen/cotton and a DJA linen/cotton today. I'll try and post pics this weekend.

    Are you speaking from first-hand experience or are you simply judging a few crappy internet pictures?

    I own probably 80-100 shirts from most makers discussed in this forum and my Jantzen shirts (when they actually show up) are definitely in the top quartile for quality and fit and easily rank #1 for value. I paid 5 times more for shirts and I feel like a fool for that.


    +1


    I could not agree more. Jantzen is worth every dime you pay for.

    damn, aport-- those shirt collars look great. when worn, I'm guessing you have little to no 'tie space' up top, is that correct? really great looking shirts, as all of them I've seen from your geneva orders.

    Andrew, those brushed cotton tattersalls are fantastic. And the collars are great, as everyone has said.

    Did your earlier orders have a double button collar?
