    Yep. I'm really happy with them. I want to order another half dozen of the chambray.

    Nice shirts ... but why just the chambray?

    It's an incredible fabric - the pictures don't do it justice.

    How do you compare these to your Charvet?

    I'm dying to try an SG chambray version of my shirts. It looks like it would make for an excellent staple: more refined than typical oxford cloth, but still significantly more relaxed than a poplin.

    Is chambray kinda see-through?

    I'm assuming you bought the cloth from Will? If so, which colors did you opt for?

    I, on the other hand, am 100 percent Bijan.

    I've talked about this at length in another thread but suffice to say, I like them both and will continue to order from each of them. I'll probably stick to the basics with Rubinacci and leverage the wealth of fabrics at Charvet.

    Foo, next time you visit with LH ask to see the chambray's. Matt first told me about them - I think he as near a dozen.

    My shirtmaker was unimpressed with the quality of the SG chambray and recommended that I not use it. I found his opinion interesting, as he appears to know his stuff.

    more 'refined' than an oxford? no
    it is more casual
