    I thought my Lumen et umbra shirt was ruined, so many stains and hard living. The inside of one cuff was blood red :crazy: had it dry cleaned before to no avail. Switched dry cleaners and got it back, perfectly cleaned :slayer: very happy

    All brushed cotton / flannel type shirts should have a minimum of 10% cashmere blend. Soooo warm.

    Mine is that T/M (tim.) one I was mentioning earlier, it's probably the nicest shirt I've ever owned. This but in a different colorway.

    I know Ralph Lauren will do some 100% cashmere ones, and I think they have some blends. I'm as interested as you are in finding more shirts that are a blend like this, honestly.

    How does T/M sizing work? There's this mohair knit on forward I'm on the fence about... that shirt looks pretty nice as well. Prices seem really reasonable for the good fabric blends they use.

    That T/M shirt is on sale right now at Forward for $10 less than it is at OC. I was admiring it earlier. What does yours look like, tween? Kinda jealous.

    Hm... I'm tempted to get it but I absolutely shouldn't be buying anything. I really like that colorway and the price is right for sure. This is mine, that beige is on top and cuffs, then there is the broad green stripe, then the blue and cream the rest of the way down. Single vertical stripe red on left chest, and also inner left arm. There are just little nice details like those small diagonal white stripes - they flip them to go in the opposite direction on the cuffs. Also the back darts are very cool looking.



    I'm wearing a 3, which I'd say is maybe a 37 chest. I'm a pretty standard small/36 and this fits me the way I want it to, but isn't necessarily SF approved fit. I'm wearing it untucked and it's a very good length for that, but if i tuck it in the back billows a bit. looks very good untucked. I could probably get away with a 2 but I haven't tried one on.

    I'm only writing so many words here because this stuff is a steal on sale and it's really nice, and I want to see more people get it. That said, I should probably keep my mouth shut so I can keep it all to myself :slayer:

    this is pretty funny.... Lagerfeld is a legend, an enigma and sometimes acts like the crazy uncle at Thanksgiving!

    I asked them why I'm suddenly getting emails exclusively about women's clothing I never used to receive...
