• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Monti Soft white twill

View attachment 1280300

Silky body; soft, almost brushed surface. Opacity is good, you can see just a bit of contrast with the placket and pocket. Wrinkle resistance average, this picture was towards the end of the day, part of which I had the sleeves rolled up. Main downside is the soft surface can pick up lint, but I don't think it's noticeable by others. Overall, I'd recommend with above reservations.

Style note: I love pockets, but will have to forgo on future white dress shirts. Doesn't look great IMO.
The pocket might look better with a placket. I almost always get a placket and a single, buttoned pocket on my shirts. I think I have one from Luxire that has no placket and two buttoned pockets, plus a square hem with side vents -- to wear untucked w/o an undershirt in really hot weather.

Anyone have a semi-spread collar design they really like wearing without a tie? I'm looking to make a few shirts to be worn (gasp) with a suit but no tie. Ideally a semi-spread that won't roll too hard/ride up-or-down when worn without a tie. I find my current formal collars (based off a tweaked Barba design) start to roll too severely at the top when worn sans-tie. No explicit preference on lining or fusing, though I'd prefer something that looks natural (collar bones need not apply). Any takers?

I have a lot of success with the English spread collars there

I had a custom semi-spread, unfused and very lightly lined collar made for those occasions when a tie isn't necessary, but that's still large and tall enough to wear with a jacket. Check it out:

The collar is floppier than what I'd like, but it works well with a jacket when I put metal collar stays on and starch the collar band a little bit. Since you are worried about rolling, I'd recommend going for a more rigid interlining. Order number is 36218, collar points are 10cm and collarband height is 4cm
