    I like where you're going with this, Monkeyface.

    Jesus Christ this forum makes a man type some weird sentences...

    Looks good. Just curious, did you move fabric to the front panel throughout the entire shirt or just through the chest? Also, those are really clean sleeves. That's the one part where I haven't been able to achieve markedly improved results across my orders.

    Cheers, CruzAzul. Haha, you're not the only one who thinks that.
    Throughout the entire shirt. I might just remove half an inch from the lower back panel altogether next time, but I'm getting very nitpicky now. Increasing the armhole circumference a little helped with cleaning up the sleeves, but that might not work for you.

    Looks like you nailed the fit this time around. This looks great. Your last one had to much material in the stomach area kinda making it look like you have a belly.

    Has anyone sent in Uniqlo Slim Fit chinos in W31 for replication? I would like to use the cut as the basis for a new pair of pants.

    I find them to be very wrinkle resistant during normal wear.

    I've heard that the Frescos are 'scratchier' to the touch and while I can't speak to the Frescos, I'll add that the Dugdales are pretty comfortable to wear. (There's a clear difference in how they feel compared to one of my pants made in in a 120's for example, but again, not uncomfortable at all to me).

    I couldn't find much discussion about the Dugdale Fine Worsted line prior to taking the leap, but I did find the following slightly helpful:

    hoodog - excellent! Would you mind sharing who makes the trousers? The collar on the 2nd shirt is awesome!

    This forum is probably the best place. We have been bad at taking pictures and keeping a good record of them. We regret that too. Hopefully things will improve over time.

    Hoodog, what collar did you go with? Everyone's really nailing their fits and collars lately.

    And thanks, Cosme. Those links make the fine worsted sound pretty appealing.
