    Well, fit pics will be up to you guys [​IMG] I don't have my laptop in front of me, but I think the colors ordered were black (me), super dark indigo, red, blue-green, blue and white stripe. Maybe there was a light indigo in there... Mint green would be cool. I'd consider it if green looked good on me, which it doesn't. I'm trying to decide what to go for on the Navyman- light indigo or white.

    Ordering for the Navyman starts now! Same procedure as last time. All the info you need to order is on the first post of this thread. Just to confirm, the Navyman will essentially be this shirt: [​IMG] With a curved back yoke like this: [​IMG] And with a cuff like this: [​IMG] But with two buttons instead of three snaps. I will as Nathan to elongate the placket a little so it is easier to roll the sleeves. My Photoshop rendition: The placket and curves will be on the inside of the cuff. [​IMG]

    I am not interested until I see how my first order came out. But the placket button should be horizontal. A bit harder to do, technically, but it will look much better.

    zissou, any word on how the Workman shirts are coming along?

    I hope Nathan can finish them up next week, I'm excited to see mine.

    I can understand that, dopey. There will be time to order both shirts after receiving your first, if you are interested. I actually changed my measurements a little for this latest Workman order. I was thinking about the placket button hole, too. i think it's possible to do if we widen the placket a little.

    Last I talked to Nathan, he said he'd have everything cut this week, and sew it all together next week. I am thinking that I should receive the box of shirts late next week or early the following week. I can't wait to see my new shirt.

    I heard back from Nathan today and he said he has everyone's patterns made. He's just now cutting the fabric because it's taken him a while to pick it all up. Apparently, he travelled pretty far and wide to source all of the different chambrays for this group buy. Plus, he was out of town last weekend. I'll try to get you guys another update later in the week!

    ^Yeah, I had hoped it would be quicker, but then again, it's really not something to be rushed!

    Thanks! So, I was browsing the MJK thread and I'm pretty sure this is the same blue-green chambray: [​IMG] [​IMG]
