I'll be going back to HK later this week and I would like to place another order with Jantzen. I've had a pretty good experience there last year and I wouldn't hesitate to go back and use their service. Now, I'm trying to figure out what other kind of colours/patterns that I would want.

Right now, I have solid white, light blue, light pink, purple, black stripes, blue stripes, and micro blue checks. I'm thinking of getting pink and black checks if they have them.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Are you talking for suits, or something more casual?

For suits, a pinpoint oxford in white or blue, or a smallish gingham check in blue or lavender, would look pretty good. For something slightly more casual, maybe a standard OCBD or a tattersall check in cotton flannel.

Of course, this is just my opinion...

Solid ecru poplin is an essential that you don't have. It goes with almost anything. What kind of fabric are your light blue shirts? Solid poplin and end-on-end are both staples.
