    Geneva is really touting Alumo these days and dissuading people from Mason. Prices on Alumo seem to have dropped, either that or they just never were as high as I assumed them to be.

    Just at Geneva or across the board? I was surprised at how affordable they were, relatively speaking. I had thought it would be much more expensive.

    No gingham, though. [​IMG]

    Just at Geneva. The only other maker I have any recent experience with is CEGO and I have not ordered Alumo from Carl.

    Alumo fabrics are not expensive (especially considering the quality). We sell Alumo fabric shirts for similar prices to the likes of Ringhart and Acorn (and the Alumo are much nicer fabrics IMO)

    I'm not about to get through all the pages ... but as for the few I did see ... I find the amount of truly delicious shirt porn to be minimal. Come on guys ... put some va-va-voom shirt porn out there ... something that will really turn us on.

    I say no more "last call" shirt porn ... lets limit it to the really good stuff.

    you need to keep in mind that most of us here are the type of guys that go to the exotic dance places on Tuesday nights, lower grade talent then on the weekends, but you tip them less for the same amount of titilation.

    I do tend to like ... "graphic." Lately I've had a lust for checks and gingham.

    I could test the fabric for you and report back.

    How about this Thomas Mason puppytooth?

    For me it's too warm for summer, but fine for early spring, autumn and winter.

    For practical reasons, and I like the simplicity of a rounded single cuff. I have some French-cuffed shirts, but they don't see much daylight.

    I was at Geneva last weekend and they had some stellar looking Alumo cashmere/cotton blends for Fall. Does anyone have shirts made from this fabric?
    Do you mean the Cashmerello range? I have a few and they look and feel very nice. I wash them on wool cycle, so no maintenance issues. The price,. however, is not exactly on the cheap side. You might want to check out their Lanella offerings which are pretty good, too. Actually, I like them (a tiny little bit) better than the Cashmerellos.

    Single cuffs with links? Brave to admit...
