    But the point isn't merely to put together a shirt that stays intact. Yes, machine stitching is stronger, but a machine-stitched collar and machine-attached sleeve do not feel as nice. You may think the difference is marginal, but that marginal difference is precisely why many buy a handsewn shirt to begin with.

    You sound like the Princess in "The Princess and the Pea"

    Mmkn, have you ever noticed that you're slightly bowlegged? I'd have a physician take a look at that.

    I wouldn't worry. No doubt the result of playing Polo with his fellow aristocrats.

    ^ I think that's a good idea.

    +1. Absolutely vulgar taste.

    My first commissions from NSM were delivered during Mina's and Dino's visit to Stockholm a week ago:

    I am extremely satisfied with the results, both jackets and trousers are amazing. In the works now are a fresco suit, a cotton suit, a flannel suit and odd trousers [​IMG]

    Nice. Pants look a little slim from the front, but it probably looks a-OK from the side.

    Just out of curiousity, what is the height of the shirt collar band at the front and back?

    Thanks everyone.

    Yes, the pants are not as slim from the side.

    Shirt collar is almost 3cm at the front and 4cm at the back.

    Mina's jackets seem to be one of the very few neapolitan jackets which (at least to my eye) can look really good on a tall, slender frame. Nice stuff, gusvs!
