    I stand corrected. medtech's pics do show two different shapes indeed, one of which is similar to yours. I had not noticed those in the past. I think I prefer the rounder one but could see the squarer one work better in some instances, e.g. with squarer flapped patch hip pockets.

    Did you make anything using those patterns?

    It's clear to me from old movies that American patch pockets tended to be quite square in the 30s and 40s.

    They look beaker-shaped to me. I kind of like them.

    It will be interesting to see what I get next. Three of the odd jackets coming up next are three patches.

    I assume Mina that checks in with this thread...

    edge stitched collars are a little guido for you, aren't they wasp-boy?

    I can say that because I am a guido.

    Very nice camp collars F.C.

    Don't forget the 1/4 Tahitian. It's warm there.

    i'm surprised you go for edge stitching.

    Edit: A whole conversation took place in the time it took me to type the above sentence.

    It's a collo Capri (and thanks for the suggestion, Jan.) It can't be worn with a necktie, as you can see.

    Given how the collar, band and plain placket are all one piece, edge stitching strikes me as the most appropriate...to my eye, at least, it would look messier with a inset stitch on the collar with no place to go since there is no band to terminate the inset line cleanly. The edge stitching, in contrast, just continues from collar to band to placket with no interruption.

    I hope that makes sense.

    It's a summer or beach-y getaway shirt.

    it's too bad you shave your chest because a gold italian horn would twinkle nicely in the hairs as the shirt is open to the navel.

    While I don't need to shave my chest, I understand where you're coming from.

    If times get tough, gigolo is always a viable option for me.
