    I'm meeting with the ariston guy shortly, if I see a similar fabric, I'll let you know. But if your tailor does not have an account with them, not sure how you would get it. Maybe just go through what your tailor has? Holland and Sherry will have similar stuff

    Much appreciated!
    I'm using NSM, I'll see if they have something similar next time they visit. Since they do carry H&S which you are mentioning.

    just email Mina, show her a pic of the fabric you like and she'll have something for you when she comes. LP will also have something in that pattern range.

    I generally don't love those microplaid shirts but that is not bad, luft.

    don't encourage him, thats not bad because it looks almost solid in the pics. The pattern is most likely louder IRL.

    I generally hate this shirt and have struggled to make it work ever since I bought it three years ago. I am wearing it only because I am feeling particularly masochistic today.

    I think gdl encouraged me to keep it the last time I dared to post it here.

    I still have my doubts.


    It's pretty subdued IRL too. very light blue, very pale pink overcheck. Nevertheless, still not convinced.

    Mina has access to Ariston.

    Gdl - really like that SC+shirt. Stripes of that dimension do quite well with many patterned jackets IMHO.

    I like the basic combo but not the square.
