Here is a stupid question regarding formal shirts: with a marcella shirt, is the pique marcella fabric traditionally limited to the collar, cuffs and bib? My shirtmaker informed me that this is how they make them. He indicated that the marcella fabric was too stiff to make the entire shirt out of it. This comment caught me off guard.

Marcella is similar, but is not Pique. Both terms are commonly used to mean the same thing. http://www.cutterandtailor.com/forum...?showtopic=189 If one does prefer softer shirt collars, then cotton poplin, as used on the rest of the shirt, should be used in lieu of marcella/pique. It is acceptable to have a bib and cuffs made out of marcella/pique, but the collar can match the rest of the shirt (cotton poplin)

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
