    I've got the Blue Chambray by Cotonificio but I didn't like the fit, since I find it rather blousy for my body. In particular the arms are relativly big from what I am used to. It has got the thin Standard-MOP-Buttons but double needle seams. Still, not bad for the money.

    Got shipping confirmation for my last order, ordered March 19, shipped May 6, should arrive Friday May 9. These will hopefully have the fixes to remedy some of the seat problems due to forward hip posture. I'll post pics once I receive them. Also, first pair of Minnis Fresco for me, can't wait!

    Interesting that it's so blousy, since that one's specifically advertised as "slim fit." Makes me wonder if the grey graph is regular fit. But then again, what to make of the fact that the grey graph shirt is the one with tapering and arm-hole and sleeve-sizing claims, whereas the chambray shirt actually advertised as "slim fit" doesn't mention these things at all.

    Anyone have suggestions for grey odd trousers? Lightweight since it hits over 100f here, and not too dark/light that it looks like it was once with a suit.

    Thanks!

    Fresco. I like the heavier weight in all but 95+ days.

    How does the NOBD collar look under sweaters? Anyone do this?

    It does help - I wanted to make sure the collar points stay under the collar without too much fuss. Thanks.

    Finally ironed that Brembana shirt in the pic above. That thing is a pain to iron! Pain to get the wrinkles to disappear.

    Shirt ordered 4/16, shipped 4/29, arrived 5/6. Now I have to go in to work to pick it up!

    Not the quickest turnaround I've had with Luxire, but certainly reasonable.

    I would consider two weeks from ordered to shipped very good, in the world of online MTM.

    What seems to be roughly the time line for shirts as it stands now? I placed a one shirt order on April 11th. Still no shipping/completion confirmation. Hoping to get it within the next week or so. That way it can ship out, and I can start using it. Its a bit more of an overshirt, so the current weather is very favorable for it's use.

    Edited: spelling

    Looks very nice! Sorry but i don't understand what no tie space means? Is it unfused?

    Really? I'd say it's one of my easiest shirts to iron...

    You see the top button of the shirt? Notice how the collar points flow all the way up and join just above that top button? There's no space there. Shirts with space for a tie usually have a gap there. Edit: Just realized you quoted an image from almost a year ago. That was kinda odd!

    The seersucker is the easiest for me - not much more than one pass anywhere.

    This guy, if it was completely dry on the rack, I give it a few mists with the squirt bottle, set the iron on cotton, and although the shirt is smooth, you can still see where the wrinkles were. I noticed once I hung the shirt up and saw it in natural lighting. Had to re-mist it a few times and iron it a bit slower for them to go.
