    End of the shopping day :)

    14 colors of chinos bought.

    15 shirt options in linen, many solid shades of blue.

    One white linen cotton. Not much options found so far.

    One black-white houndstooth linen pant choice.

    I think most of the wishlist is covered.

    And yes, the green corduroy for the collar of some quilted jackets.

    Will try and add the chinos today and the linen over the weekend.

    Forgot to add: 5 choices in seersucker, 7 in Madras and a few feather weight casual shirt options for the warmer days.

    Are any of the new chinos in the summer light weight (160 grams)?

    Which of the chambray fabrics would make the best casual button-down for summer (e.g. airy and open but not sheer and dressy)?

    1. What are all these "Warzone" shirt fabrics? How does it compare to the "Classic Oxford" thickness and feel?

    2. Are the "Royal Oxfords" just as good for casual (untucked with jeans) as the "Classic Oxford"?

    I am looking for a casual shirt like a OCBD. I already have the standard blue, white and pink. Grey oxford next? Any other ideas?

    Grey seems kinda weird. I'd go with a blue/white stripe.

    What about the other of lighter/darker blue? or some lighter cloths like a couple chambrays for (I assume you're in NA) summer.

    Prozoach- Believe it or not I find the navy chambray which is the darkest to be quite soft and airy; similar to madras for some reason.
    Friday Frenzy- the Warzones are indeed very thick would not recommend for summer; the royals are also in my opinion to 'shiny' for casual shirting. I would go with ecru if I were going for an Oxford or I'd go with an even more summery fabric such as linen cotton or even Chambray as Joiji recommended.

    Any idea what these collars are like sizewise? Maybe a 3.5" point length, 2" height, 6" spread?

    Can't seem to find or make a good collar that replicates these shirts (or at least the look on a manikin). Would love to find a Luxire substitute.

    Any updates on the jeans?
    Nickel plated buttons and rivets? New fabrics?

    Your numbers seems about right, I was guessing height to be 1.75


    Need to make the current lot of jeans available. Next week positively, after adding the new Chinos and linen.
