    Extreme cutaway I was asking about. I find extreme cutaway collars great to wear with and without a tie, making it a very versatile collar. Even the english cutaway collar jumps out if not combined with a tie, whereas a extreme cutaway collar lays closer to the neck when unbuttoned.

    You must be the only person in the world who thinks this. I would never wear a cutaway without a tie, and I don't think the purpose of a collar is to lay as close as possible to the neck. If that's what you're after, why not just wear a banded collar?

    Cutaway collars looks weird without a tie IMO.

    They can look good, but there is a reason I only got one shirt with it.

    A lot of these discussions would be better served with fit pics.

    Please illustrate your positions with pictures of you wearing the items (especially the trousers - we need more trouser fit pics).

    Thank you for your prompt responses.

    Are those insanely thick or is it just the pics?

    Would you go for a lustrous fine white (140/2) or a white twill for a dress shirt? I've got swatches of both fabrics, and visually I like the texture of the white twill better than the lustrous fine white, but I'm a bit unsure of what is the "right" choice here.

    Note: I use suits a couple of times a year, for semi-formal/formal events. I'm thinking a white dress shirt with FC for the more formal events.

    For the light blue dress shirt I will probably go with the pale blue poplin 2/100 and button cuffs.

    ^ I have the white twill, and find it a bit warm, and a bit itchy (not quite sure why). I actually also have the pale blue poplin 2/100, and like it much more - smoother, lighter, and better suited to year-round wear. For what it's worth, I asked Luxire what the closest white fabric to the blue poplin was, and they recommended the Alumo white poplin or lustrous fine white.

    Would you have the possibility of taking a couple of pictures of the pale blue poplin, Chuck?

    Twill usually wears warm, and I wouldn't want it on a more formal shirt (i.e. FC). I don't have the Lustrous Fine White (or the twill), but I'd look for something other than twill for a more formal shirt.
