    I bet that looks pretty good without all of that photo processing.

    The colors never come out true to life so I adjust to try to make it more accurate. But I'll let you be the judge of whether it looks better without the adjustments (just know that the colors are darker and less saturated IRL) : http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/gdl203/IMG01264-20120914-1154.jpg

    I honestly couldn't care less if there's one or two - I'm more focused on collar height. Most RTW shirts with high collars tend to have 2 buttons. My MTM shirts with same collar height have only one button.

    Nice casual shirt, gd.

    Had a dark brown Mastai once. Loved the roll of the collar.

    Wore it to death unfortunately...

    gdl, the way you fold your PS, how is it? What is it called? By the way, is there an official pocket square thread somewhere that I have missed?

    I call it the folded puff. Grab from center of square. Let it hang and fold in the middle. Stuff in pocket.

    Thanks, it looks good! It looks like you have the fold itself turning up, not the edges as in the video with will from ASW. Is that correct?

    I don't know what that video is but yes, the fold/puff is up. I personally don't like showing points or edges.
