Ok, so blog watching today I saw this picture and I like the shirt.  I know it isn't the outer limits of shirting, but who makes good fabric like this shirt?  I just started having more casual shirts made for me so, if I am behind, forgive me.

Forget the shirt, I'd rather get inside that stripy jumper.

Reg I was hoping the shirt would help get me in - maybe faulty logic.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

I think it was Cruiser Gilgamesh who made reference somewhere to him being a dance teacher, at Harvard, as opposed to being a dancer and the relationship to coolness and hip rating  - or something.Whatever.

Anyway I chanced across this - I know not how - its interesting to look at how the same bloke looks different in different colours.

oo bop will go fully sick with his colour wheel and Ivy Moog.

and the bloke is dancing.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

If I am in the right mood, I am wearing simplistic candy stripe shirts from T&A - light or medium blue on white, classic collar, double cuffs, combined with any random geometric pattern or animal whimsical print Hermes tie I happen to pull out of my closet. Suits always plain and very trad, shoes always black C&Js polished to mirror finish.

PLain suite can "tame" a loud shirt/tie combo. A white hankie makes the whole outfit even more trad.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

Nice - but here are two comments: the plain mangenta one on top....please dont. It just looks bland, and cheap. Stripes would have helped. And the candy stripes...nice and oldschool, but the "french" colour combo would put me off.
The one with the complex checks....very nice, typical 1990ies Jermyn Street.

I have that checked one in a stripe too. Im actually thinking of doing a couple of old school stripes and and 1990s Jermyn checks limited edition shirting fabrics. I have some ideas of my own but I'm also open to ideas.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

The first multi blue and pink shirt. I could see that done in four different shades of pink too. I do like the original fabric. I wouldnt mind that in a zephyr weave. Very UK, I like it.

The Pink butcher stripe could be interesting in just the right sort of pink and in a higher than normal thread count like a 160s 2x2. I would imagine no one has that.

The red one I am having a harder time with. It's not a bad looking cloth but...well, never mind me, what does anyone else think?

They are almost all great

Many of those are quite nice.

Do you have shirts made up sir? I was under the impression that you were more of a ready to wear sort of man.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

I am. But as H&H and T&A have tried to become "modern", I may have to go MTM or bespoke.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

Understood. Are you someone who likes finer grades of shirt cotton, like 160s 2x2 poplin and above?

Although, I think I have a 100s 2x2 design in blue and white I would like to get Acorn to reproduce.

Re: The outer limits of shirting

Well - I dont know. H&Hs shirts are a bit thicker, H&K a bit finer. Both are good.

H&H use a lot of Ringhart fabrics which are very UK in design and color but they are indeed a little thicker than usual. I dont know who Hilditch use now. I never did like their collars or their cuffs.

So you wear Harvie, Hilditch and Turnbull shirts?

Re: The outer limits of shirting

I migrated from TML (lord, forgive me) to HH (but their collars were weird - the tips never reached the body, and the fabric around the top button looked oddly shaped) to H&K (3 iterations until they got their act together - cuffs to tight now) to T&A (wonderful collar, super fit of cuffs, right patterns, shirts as they should be).

T&A is my default shirt supplier. I am in London about 2-3 times a month, and I pop in their for a little souvenier.

Thanks for Ringhart - yes, they do the proper stuff. Love it.

As you remember from your notes I am very colour-sensitive.

I prefer pale, "acid-y" pinks, as opposed to warmer "peach-y"  pink. Difficult to express what I mean. "Acid-y" pale pink looks "fresh" whereas the other variant is more wintery.
