So why the price difference between the two prince rose fabrics?
There are many factors - the primary being the design itself. Some colors and style move faster than others. The mill and the dealers price the items accordingly. They are made for completeness of collection. And are beautiful. But a lot of people do not like to see themselves in those colors.
Even in a collection, fabrics are made of varied composition and each of those affect the price. That plays a role too.
Just got my shirt jacket!
Great work, Arnaud and team... it looks and fits great!
Hurrah we can be shirt jacket brothers! Even better since ur Aussie too
Thanks for the reply. That is actually really interesting. Had no idea some patterns would cost more to make then others.
If everything else is the same and the color is different, then the cost of making may not be too different, but the price may still be.
But, 2 fabrics, having the same exact pattern can vary immensely in cost depending on how they are made and finished.
Here are some fit pics of my last shirt, which I think has the following problems:
1. The collar is too high and the shirt collars are far too large.
2. Everything could be slimmed down just a bit throughout (lost some weight recently)
3. Sleeves are too long.
I think your pants are too high
I would wait the day or two it takes to have someone else take the photos of you, then repost with them in the standard poses you see people post here when asking for fit advice. Your observations aren't necessarily off, but it is just too difficult to give better/specific feedback with the arm extended for self-photo shots and with no shots of the back.
There's no physical location I can go to to get myself measured, is there? I see on the website that the parent company is located in Jersey City, NJ, and there's an office in Edison. Both are manageable trips for me to make if that's an option. I don't trust myself at all to measure myself accurately...
did you request a 2 button collar?
if yes? then it is not too tall.. If you did not, then someone made a mistake.
yes, it is too large and the collar is way too spread to be worn with out a tie.
the shirt fits you very well.
I would not make it much smaller.
i would guess you spend some time in the gym lifting?
has the shirt been washed?
if you make the sleeve too short, then they will get caught on your forearms when you reach for something.
Posted some newer pics for a bit more critique. I think it could be slightly slimmer at mid-waist, and the back is off. I do lift quite a bit.
I did request a two button collar, because I do like my collars a bit higher than standard, but this is probably too much, so may request an offset 2 button collar where the buttons are diagonal and the collar is just slightly oversized from their English collar.
Nice fit, but could be a little wider around the chest.
If you want useful feedback, you should:
1) Launder the shirt
2) Button the collar so we can see how it fits
