    in the meantime, any interesting ones?
    YES [​IMG] Edit: sorry [​IMG] the blue green looks great, as does the super dark indigo which is very limited, and there are a ton of other colors

    OK guys, here are the chambray colors! I am waiting to hear back from Nathan as to whether my color name is the best description, because on some of the lighter colors, it is hard to tell. I'll be sure to update the list throughout the day. Updated Pricing: Selvage=$190, Non-selvage=$180, MOP buttons are $5 extra. All prices include shipping CONUS. International shipping=$15 extra When ordering, please refer to the color number and name, and the button letter. Chambray Colors Non-Selvage Chambrays [​IMG] 1. Red (darker than the red used for my first shirt) 2. Light Purple 3. Dark Pink 4. White 5. Super Black [​IMG] 6. Gold 7. Salmon 8. Light Blue 9. Cream [​IMG] 10. Light Blue 11. Baby Blue 12. Light Grey 13. White 14. Light Orange 15. Lighter Tan [​IMG] 16. Darker Tan 17. Pink 18. Mint Green 19. Indigo with Orange Pinstripe (stretch chambray) [​IMG] 20. Super Dark Indigo Limited to 2 or 3 shirts! (am I crazy, or does the weave on this look more like a denim?) [​IMG] 21. Blue and White Stripe (1/8" stripes) Limited to 6 or 7 shirts Selvage Chambrays [​IMG] 22. Light Indigo 23. Dark Grey 24. Light Indigo (almost a light grey) 25. Red (darker than my shirt) 26. Baby Blue 27. Black For reference: This shirt was made with #22 (Nathan said he'll send a better picture of the two light indigos [​IMG] [​IMG] 28. Blue-green (Limited to 4 or 5 shirts! This photo was taken without a flash, but the actual color is still a little darker) 29. White (not pictured because it is arriving soon, but you get the idea) [​IMG] 30. Red (same as my shirt) Buttons Mother of Pearl (vintage deadstock, $5 extra) [​IMG] Corozo Each of these styles is available in all of these colors and in any size- please specify style letter, color, and size! For reference, EG buttons are about 9/16" FYI- In my opinion, anything smaller than 1/2" and larger than 5/8" will potentially look out of place on your shirt. [​IMG]

    Too... many... colours... to choose! Sensory overload! They all look really great though, thanks for posting these Zissou. Super dark indigo, super black, and light indigo all look very nice. I was planning on light green or red, but now that I see the rest of these, I'll have to think about it!

    ^Yeah, I know how you feel! I won't start taking orders until tomorrow evening, just so you guys have time to decide and finish taking your measurements. I just marked myself down for a dark grey selvage Workman with MOP [​IMG]

    Do you know if the darker indigos and blacks fade over-time?

    ^I don't know, but I would venture to say 'yes'. Don't all cotton fabric fade over time? I doubt you'd get denim-like fadez, though.

    Any chance for a white cardozo cats eye button?

    The blue green is selvage? So hard to resist! Hard to decide between that, the mint and the black, which looks great.

    Thanks again, Zissou. You are a chambray saint.

    Dark indigo with orange stripe (stretch chambray). Is it 100% cambray cotton and get the stretch from the weave or does it have some synthetic fiber for stretch? Thanks

    airportlobby- LOL, thanks [​IMG] I will check on the buttons. The blue-green is selvage. I have a hard-on for the dark grey selvage, since it fairly uncommon in shirts. Lance- I will check, but I am guessing there is a little lycra type stuff in it. mpcec- I think I just might get two of the Navyman!

    If I could muster it up, I'd follow your lead! This thread makes me drool. Love the options, and the idea behind it, and all the interest.

    Thanks for all your work. Wish I could slot this one in!

    airportlobby- All of those corozo button styles are available in all of those colors, which I didn't realize at first. I will update the post above. Lance- Nathan says there is a little lycra in it.

    A final question (maybe!). I'll send payment to Nathan and the order forms to you for two shirts. What happens if one or both of my choices is no longer available by the time I place the order on Saturday evening? Is the money for the unavailable item or items returned? Thanks

    Lance- I'll need you to send payment to me for a few reasons. I'll need to pay for shipping your shirts to you, and Nathan suggested that I pay him a certain % up front for the material and then the rest when the shirts are done. Also, if something is out of stock and I need to issue a refund (see below), then I can easily do that. Nathan really only wants to handle making the shirts and nothing more, which is why I am even collecting your measurements for him. It'll be so much easier for everyone if it works out this way. I will do my best to keep the availability of the chambrays and buttons updated as orders come in. If something is out of stock, I will give you a chance to choose another chambray or button. Really, there are only a few chambray choices that you need to worry about. If there are no other choices that you want, then I would be happy to refund your money. I'll even pay the Paypal fees to make sure you get the full amount back.

    Returning the Paypal fee from your pocket is above and beyond; it's not necessary. The reason I ask is because both of my choices are limited quantity chambrays, dark indigo and indigo stripe. Thanks
