    I'm part Eyetalian so I'm generally not too weary about looking part Eyetalian! As for wearing a non-BD shirt with an open collar, I think that, at a minimum, the shirt should be unlined. The stiff look of your collar detracts from the relaxed, casual look you're going for.

    I do care ! We cannot be 100% in sync though, that would just be weird. I don't know what Hickey Freeman does and if it looks like their style, but I personally LOVE this jacket and cloth - I think it's one my bespoke home-runs

    I think it is an Americanism not to like open collar non-BDs. It's a good Americanism, though.

    That may be true - probably in the same category as suit with no tie. In Paris, suit with no tie is a staple look - far more common than SC + odd pants.

    Button-down collars suck.


    For me. Fine for other people if they like 'em.

    i had never seen their shirting before. just checked their site, looks like they have a very fashion forward, so to speak, type of style.

    yes, that i s what i meant. i had one shirt like that, and i found it very hard to button. might have been the buttons were too small, yours look like they are bigger. no genitals joke please.


    i do know what ed meant when he said that, i do see the HF similarity, but i like the jacket quite a bit, regardless.


    i happen to like that look a lot when the pieces and the fit are right.

    Yes, the brand evolved into a more peacock style - likely because of the success of their extreme cutaway collar. Their Connery collar has a great shape though and the fabrics he uses for RTW shirts are excellent.

    It is. And no, I'm not. I think you should start buying MTM shirts.

    High tea? Which London hotel?

    I know it's sacrilegious in these parts to even suggest this, but I do think that you'd benefit from a slightly bigger knot. Tie knot.
