what kid of collar do you guys generally chose for a polo shirt? the rugby collar?

Also, do you order them in your standard shirt size or a bit bigger?

Hello!
Looking for a off white fabric, best would've been cotton twill which would've been usable all year around where I live (sweden), optimal would be a four season pant. Looked all over the site but no avail, though I found these two:

Plain off-white cotton flannel

Off-white heavy vintage linen

Do any of you have any thoughts on these fabrics? I understand that flannel is unusual in summer, although this one is low weight and to me cotton flannel isn't as much connected to winter as wool flannel. I guess the linen pant would work great in summer, and maybe spring, but not fall or winter, so then I would have to get some other white pant for those seasons.

All help is greatly appreciated!
For Sweden, 4-season wear, I would recommend the Brisbane Moss Keats. Also available in white, cream.
It is an amazing fabric in our experience.

Thanks for the reply! The linen cotton mix seems nice but I generally prefer twill or plain, except maybe in 100% linen. Also heard that a cotton/linen mix usually will wrinkle as bad as linen but won't be as ventilated, maybe you have a different experience?
I have a few pairs of the linen cotton canvas. The blend and the weave means it seems to hold a crease much better than pure linen. It breathes adequately, but is a dense fabric so I wouldn’t wear in tropical heat. I’d consider it an all-rounder with a slight bias to spring/summer, but that’s also true of white as a colour.

I have this. Not quite as epic as the ecru heavy vintage, but a really lovely fabric. Heavy enough for a range of climatic conditions, but it’s linen so will look a bit odd if worn out of season. Not to be worn in the vicinity of small children or animals...

Luxire has the linen-cotton canvas in white, that would be my choice as an underrated fabric suitable for at least 3 season wear:


Alternately, perhaps @luxire can help you source a suitable fabric?

Thanks for the reply! I tend to prefer twill or plain unless it's a 100% linen pant. Also heard that a linen/cotton mix usually will crease as much as 100 linen but without the benefits of ventilation, maybe that isn't your experience?

Brisbane moss looks great @luxire but would really like it in an off white color, any other suggestions maybe?

Thanks for the very swift reply! Sweden could rarely be seen as tropical so that won't be a problem then, and great to know that it holds a crease well. I tend to think that canvas works best in spring/summer but I do think that off white or cream trousers looks great on a crisp winter day as well, though preferrably corduroy, flannel, plain or twill. Also aware that a twill can be flanneled and so on but yeah, I think you know what I mean, you seem to have a knack for clothing ;)

The Keats shade card. In case something meets your needs.

Looks great - @luxire any comments on this fabric? Seems pretty light, wonder how it would drape.
The weight was in gsm, so the actual weight is 7.5 Oz. The fabric is excellent, great drape.
The price was an error and has been corrected. The orders already placed will be honored.

Am I correct in assuming that submitting body measurements for trousers and 'regular' will give me a regularly fitting trouser? Well, one which is supposed to fit regularly given the extent of online MTM without fittings. Or was I supposed to fill in all of the boxes?

Hello all, got a few questions about shirts.
Looking at getting one made to start replacing my off the rack ones. I'm after a thin, crisp, dry fabric in white. Could anyone make any suggestions? Something like this fabric from Saman Amel:

Second, in terms of fit: I'm a thin, tall guy, and even the slimmest of cuts from TM Lewin, one of the 3 affordable English shirtmakers ends up billowing out in my mid and lower back.
While I don't want to get a skintight shirt, I don't want it to be rather trim in the waist and hips so I don't get any flaring out in those areas. Should I get my shirt in slim or super-slim from Luxire?
What would be fantastically helpful is if someone could post a picture of them in a super-slim and a slim shirt for comparison.

Thanks so much ahead of time.
