    I should probably say that it is my fault. If you notice on the roll of the lapel there is a "sham" buttonhole. Frank thought that I wanted to button it all of the way up so he had all of the buttons parallel. I pointed to where I wanted them moved. :embar:

    Same here, but otherwise, looks pretty good.

    Now the shoes, that's a different matter alltogether...

    Maybe I will see you there. I have to hand him a wad of cash for another suit and pick up a trial shirt.

    Here is my trial shirt from Frank. I need a slightly wider spread and slightly longer points, also tighter cuffs. A few more washes and we will know for sure.

    I like the collar. I was there today for some alterations and saw a pile of shirtings for customers orders.

    Yeah, he told me to wear this one and wash a few times and then he will make me another trial with the changes that I want. He told me he can alter this one too after the washes and such. At that point I will place an order for a small bunch. All white, of course.

    Very nice; best pic I've seen of you here. I am with you on the longer points; how does it fit otherwise?

    I don't know. Like a shirt, I guess. I am not picky about shirts for anything other than the collar. This one reminds me a lot of a Borrelli collar. Can't complain there. I do want longer points and a slight more spread.

    Really?!? Now I am curious about E's shirt pricing; if you only care about collar, why spend the extra $ on going this route? Surely you can find RTW Borelli collars that are more economical. :confused:
