    I think #1 is fantastic and different then what is generally seen on the market. I will definelty copy it. #2 doesn't do much for me.

    Is the NOBD I collar above (#3317) unfused and unlined? I so, how does it hold up when wearing with a tie?

    The NOBD1 holds up great with a tie. My picture with the pencil stripe shirt is NOBD1. So you can take a look. Unfused, lightly lined.
    No beating #1 but there's no reason it shouldn't be the end all be all. it works well with stripes and plain shirts but, for ginghams, NOBD has the right idea. He's basically got an italian collar with no fusing. Or light fusing. It may not be as jaw-dropping as the NOBD1 but it's just as admirable in my eyes. I just ordered a shirt with the 1738 collar, just like 7 Rocket. But I asked for 4" points (not sure if that's standard) and no fusing/light lining. That may be what the NOBD2 collar is. Not sure, maybe pretty close.

    Sorry for answering questions for you NOBD. I know the same ones have been asked 100 times already so I figured you wanted a break. You may need an entourage just for these collars. And a rep to answer questions for you.

    The #1738 collar is nice (I have 4 shirts with that collar), but I've come to learn that it has way too much of a tie gap.

    I've been working on perfecting the 1738. My most recent shirt has the collar, unfused with medium lining. But this time I specified a 1/4 inch higher front collar band with two buttons. I really like the result as it slightly decreases the spread and changes the geometry to make it longer vertically with a bit more downward curve, if that description makes sense. I decided to do this after playing around with the standard version of the collar and finding I liked the look when I pulled up a bit on the band.

    I agree, though, that it could use less tie gap.

    What would be the approximate cost of switching out a collar on one of your shirts?I have a couple of shirts where I now have different thoughts on the details.

    Thanks

    I was thinking about this just the other day. First shirts I got, which I like, would be better with a different collar.

    Finally got the light grey Minnis Fresco trousers pressed and am getting around to wearing / posting pictures. These were modeled off my BB MTM flannel trousers. I think I am going to narrow the leg opening about 0.5 inches and probably narrow the rest of the leg by a bit as well. I might also increase the rise by about 0.5 inches but haven't decided whether I want to do this or not. They feel great in the waist and seat areas and are quite comfortable. Luxire's measurements are all correct; any errors or changes are entirely on me. A few pictures are tagged.

    I'll most likely be filling my winter trouser wardrobe needs with my next order, though I may do one more intermediate order of a single pair of trousers to make sure some of my minor adjustments work the way I am expecting. Looking forward to it.

    I'd leave a little more room for your junk, especially if wearing to work (unless you are mayor of san diego)

    And maybe some extra space around the seat, so the pockets don't flare.

    Yes, if anything you need to increase the rise in my view.

    Thanks. The light there is all natural. Outdoors pics would be tricky around here due to the wind and foot traffic, but I'll give it some thought.

    Figured I'd bump my question in case anyone wanted to snap a picture tomorrow. [​IMG]

    I've had it. Fixed within a day or so. You should be OK.

    For those who have done suits: What was the process like? Did you send in a suit to copy and make adjustments off of that? Measure a suit? Was there much back and forth? Just curious as I've emailed Luxire about it a couple of times and never gotten a response.
