    Maybe a bit of an odd request, but it would be great to see a solid blue and solid white poly blend shirt for custom.

    While synthetics generally aren't preferable, for summer time a loose basket weave type synthetic is great for business travel and not offered by any other MTM maker here.

    I have no idea if this is some sort of proprietary material, but this linen/cotton blend knit shirt by Kamakura apparently requires no ironing and is very breathable. If something in a material like this could be made up, it might address your needs.

    I would also recommend Kamakura's "Leno Weave" fabric. It's very breathable (although a bit see-through). I'm not sure if their on the US webstore but I bought one from the NY shop, and one from their Japan webstore.

    It's almost like a loose pique fabric.

    Impressive releases! My size is unfortunately already sold out in the styles I want but really like the selection of fabrics.

    We have a bunch more in production. Some restocks as well. We already started cutting more 15.5 contemporary/item.

    Darn, I feel cheated!

    At a glance, the pics Rick posted looked like solids...on the website they turned to dobbies... arg.

    Ended up ordering three Edingburgh checks so I am still happy :)

    Wow, seriously, all the 15.5s are gone?! Rick, you gotta start carrying larger stocks of 15.5 - they keep selling out instantly!

    Don't worry guys, these are just the first group of CBD's. A lot more in the pipeline. As mentioned before we've already increased qty/cut of 15.5 contemporary. For some reason, all of sudden we had a surge on the 15.5 in store especially. Maybe with the summer people going from slim to contemp? who knows!

    Thanks for bringing in the CBD's. I was one of the others holding on to them. I'll pop in to the store tomorrow afternoon.
