Is the collar on the new wool-cotton shirts not quite as tall as the no-collar collars on the linen shirts? Or is it just my eyes deceiving me...?

Does anyone have the ability to share pictures of the greatcoat, or the new duffel, being worn? I'm curious how the greatcoat wears on a smaller frame.

It is, yes! We took off 0.5-1cm (can't remember exactly).

No no no. Never change things. The past is always better.

Especially for those of us with onion heads on pencil necks, but, the general principle still applies.

Does anyone have tips on where to buy good buttons for blazer? What the colors to watch out for as well?

We've been developing a couple of smaller collars, and the lower collar stand helps them sit better.

A (by the book) classic blazer I think has gold or brass buttons. Is that what you mean?

Otherwise, I think either standard horn (biased) or horn or corozo which is the same or similar colour to the cloth.

Well, I was only joking, of course - you always change things in small ways, it’s part of the fun.

Well it's not fair — I have a very fragile ego!

Aw, stakkels dreng. Put on a tall shirt collar then, maybe, hold the head high etc.?

Teasing aside - my shawl collar cardigan arrived. Thank you most kindly, it is really nice. I sized up one, to M, it fits splendidly over a thick shirt, just the perfect thing for morning coffee.

It is actually a brown glen check. Blazer sound like the default navy gold brass button right? lol
Thanks. I prob go with corozo. Might make my tailor supply the buttons instead of my own ,_, Hope he has some nice ones.

Trying to think how the silver duffle gonna work with my outfit, the brown would blend in supremely well with my workwear stuff, but that silver gonna turns heads for sure.

Been getting some black footwears lately, and more monochrome colors. I think dark indigo/black and grey scale colors would work really well? I delegating the whole country look to my balmacaan D:
