    i think y'all
    are picturing the collar
    lying flat on the body
    but it will not
    unless you press it that way

    it should stand similarly
    to a collarbanded shirt
    look at the exterior stitching

    Nice shirts, foxy voxy.


    Sketched, but didn't cut them out. That was hymo. :lol:

    You would understand though if you met that tailor. Above average technicians, but poor/suspect stylists. Think iPhone vs Android.

    AFAIK the only 'Asian house style' one would (should?) go for would be a totally inoffensive (or if you are feeling somewhat less kind, bland) one - like the offerings from Chan or Peter Lee. Totally nondescript in terms of styling, with the only thing elevating them above other tailored clothes their (usually) excellent fit. None of that extended front dart, swelled chest, waterfall shoulder, columnar style, English drape, etc etc schmitter schmatter.

    Not to say that's a good or bad thing per se. Everyone picks their poison.

    Despite carping/snarking from members who patronise European tailors with and for their distinct house styles, some of us are/were limited by geography/budget, and what I've learnt while earning my wings still stands me in very good stead now that I have moved on to better tailors. In particular I think I'm better now at picking out deliberate styling choices on the part of the tailor by myself, as opposed to the process being a received pronunciation with either the tailor or SF providing insider info.

    Just my 0.02 ;)

    Interesting where the cuff buttons. Not centered but closer to the sleeve. Beautiful shape on the cuff.

    Lido is (was) a place Brits go (went) near Venice
    to burn their fair skins.
