    agree that real life pictures would help a lot more than a simple swatch. doesnt give perspective as much

    atoms, I think those shirts fit you nicely. They don't look nearly as tight as plenty of other shirts I've seen in this thread. Seems to be a very comfortable, relaxed fit that isn't blousy. I'd probably strive for a similar fit in my next order too.

    A few questions: when you mentioned 1.75" height instead of their standard 2" height, are you referring to the collar height or neckband height? And I assume "front edge" of 3" means the collar points?

    I have a small frame with 16" shoulders too, so I can relate.

    Ok, since I'll be ordering only a single shirt to get the fit right, I want to order a chino as well.
    I need a recommendation for a fabric that can be worn year round.

    Thanks

    I ordered another pair of trousers yesterday. As all measurments work very well I went for a better fabric, linen by Dugdale. I don't own any summer pants so this will be my first pair. No belt loops, instead side adjusters. Double pleat and 1.50'' cuffs.
    This is the fabric: http://luxire.com/products/dugdale_linen_beige_plain. Hopefully, we'll see some sun in London next month.

    That's correct, neckband height and collar points. This is the same cut as my other shirts minus darting in the back. As a preference, I don't go for that model thin look. So my dress shirts aren't super tight either.

    Betelgeuse, I don't want to give you a false impression. I work in software so business casual for me means sometimes being one of the better dressed people in the building. But I will still offer my opinion as you asked. With the way I structured the shirt, I would have a hard time wearing it with anything but jeans or bright colored summer weight pants. In either case, it screams casual. I included the close up texture photo so you can get a better sense. If business casual for you means the ability to dress down your pants like that, then I think you'll like it. I'm going to be a wrinkled mess in but an hour.

    How's the cool white cotton/linen blend feel in softness and comfort compared to their 100% linen? I've never found a 100% linen that offered a huge advantage over cotton/linen in terms of breathability vs. the trade-off in softness and comfort. It seems Luxire primarily carries 100% linen.

    It's not extreme, but quite apparent. I could tell when initially trying them all on pre-wash that the white was going to be most comfortable. However, that's not to say the linen of the other two isn't also nice. But there is a difference. If I remember, I'll post something back after I've worn each. I own other linen shirts but don't have extensive experience with them. Consider my opinions not well informed due to lack of experience.

    I only have a couple of linen and linen/cotton pieces myself. I know with cotton there's definitely a noticeable different between "regular" cotton vs. a premium cotton like Egyptian/Sea Island. Not sure if there's a huge difference with "regular" vs. premium linens. I do find the other drawback of 100% linen is very poor wicking capabilities for inevitable sweaty days. Not that cotton is great, but it's definitely better.
