    Thanks, guys. I really like them as well. The way that they look when the sun hits them is just stunning.

    Thank you, I am quite proud of these purchases. Ironically, this shirt is RTW. Still, I am very pleased with the fit and it is my third one from them in a couple of short weeks. It is supposedly a very limited run by Castangia just to prove a point about their craftsmanship. I purchased from Austin Hauck in the Denver, CO area. The importer for the United States is Greiner's which is located in Tampa, FL. We have been anticipating the arrival of these shirts for quite some time and more are still arriving from Italy.

    Also, they can/will do custom made for a premium with what I believe is a minimum of 3 to order. I tried one on and did not find extra alterations to be necessary is why I chose RTW.

    Here is a brief gallery from Greiner's of the first arrivals from a few months back.

    Forgive the crappy phone photo, but if this doesn't turn you on I don't know what will. I posted this photo a while back when I first picked up the blue twill Castangia shirt.

    I have never seen a seersucker before with thick MOP like that before. I like it quite a bit.

    Thanks! I think they're default.

    Truth is I know I'll get shit about a seersucker having thick MOP's, curved cutaway, and a dress stripe.. I just don't care though. It fits the temperature here. I'll probably sport a grenadine or knit a few times with this shirt.

    What, wait, who? Form has to follow function, F 'em if they don't get that. Granted I'm sympathetic as a fellow traveler in a sweltering+humid environment, but I don't see why anyone would give you crap about it.

    I've always been told seersucker is a pretty casual fabric. I've never seen seersucker suits worn to work, just maybe weekend events. I imagined it'd be the same for shirts.. It's possible I'm wrong.

    If I had a choice, I'd get burgundy/white and moss green/white striped seersucker to wear to work as well. This is ridiculously comfortable. Way better than linen.

    Just a few things this NYC visit-- best of the best was 25% off basically any purchase in Saks with VERY few exceptions, and some things even had a further discount (like Armani raincoats)

    New gray suede shoes (bought Lobb trees just to fancy em up a bit)

    Saw this suit, did not purchase/ decided in favor of a new solid charcoal gray instead

    Is there a bespoke tailoring thread??...kind of like the one for bespoke shoes only?

    This is a photo from my final fitting of a new bespoke sport coat. A few final adjustments to the waist of the jacket and now the functional button holes will be stitched...by hand ofc...and horn buttons sewn on. The pocket with the piping is a sunglasses pocket that was crafted to hold the sunglasses but not show that they are in there when the jacket is worn. The fabric is a spring/summer weight loro piana cashmere. The lining is silk. It has the traditional English ticket pocket...I was debating patch pockets but since I went with a full lining to try and get some use in the fall I went with the ticket pocket. The tailors are Turnbull & Asser.

    Got this when Brooks Brothers mailed out 40% off coupons. Stepped outside my comfort zone to add a casual SC - love the color now that I've worn it a couple times, and it's really light in weight. It's one of their Own Make SC's which is just a full canvass Southwick. The close up is more true to color but it's still not that bright - I only have an iPhone 5 for picture taking so getting true to color is tough, even with app filters.

    And this one is a bespoke by Raymond Personal Tailor in Boston. Fabric is 7.5 oz. Loro Piana - a wool/silk/linen blend. Again, color is a touch darker in real life but the close ups come close. The full shot blows - thanks, iPhone. It's a nice navy color with very subtle pattern running through it. Patch pockets, of course - but I didn't go triple because I dislike triple patch.

    @europrep I know we've discussed Raymond Tailor before so I wanted to @ you in case you wanted to see an example of a jacket from him.
