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
