    But no black shirt, though.

    More pictures from my 40-year birthday bash. I prioritised fun over classic elegance and decided to hold it in a boxing gym. I even got to fight a Muay Thai world champion, wearing black tie :)

    It's that time of the year again - to see how much weight I've gained. Thankfully everything seems to be in order; against @Caustic Man 's advice I bought the Tyrwhitt waistcoat and it'll do. I typically wear black oxfords but I just grabbed the tassels...makes me want some pumps.

    Any recommendations for a Marcella pique shirt with three stud holes and a turn-down collar? Most of the places I've been looking at only have shirts with 4+ stud holes. Is this the norm now? I know Kent Wang makes a tuxedo shirt with only three stud holes, but I prefer something without a front placket. Thank you in advance!

    I'd say MTM is your best bet - especially since you know exactly what you want.

    Proper Cloth was one of my options, but they only offer a 4 stud hole option too. Any other places I should be looking?

    Proper Cloth is who I had in mind when I responded. Maybe check out @luxire; may take a little longer than Proper Cloth but your customization options should be there. I'm not seeing a turn-down collar option, but I'd send them a DM through SF and see if they can get you want you want - I'd be surprised if they couldn't.

    I had Hemrajani make exactly this for me. I used MS Paint / Photoshop to point to where I wanted the stud holes. Not sure if that's the most efficient way to communicate it, but it worked for me!

    Weird question. I’m considering getting a shawl lapel dinner jacket. Is there usually a seam at the back of the lapel or is that only on the off the rack stuff?

    I don’t think I have a seam on mine, but let me check later.

    All shawl lapels have a seam in the back, that‘s an inherent part of the construction.
