    Interesting, thanks for sharing this. I think I have that J Crew button-down (or maybe the J Crew Factory version which is probably practically identical) and it is indeed quite "flat".

    Could this be expanded to non-oxford cottons? Would be interested to see seersucker, pique, etc.

    I was directed here from the front page. Super fascinating and I would love to see some other brands.

    I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying this thread, and I have no idea why.

    Magnified sweater fabrics would help identify the most itchy.

    I think you have a Tumblr page on your hands, here.

    S&M and Kamakura are my faves. I have a BB and a vintage LE Hyde Park, and they're both pretty great too. This is an interesting thread, definitely a departure from the usual...

    I've got this one. http://www.spierandmackay.com/produc...ford___brushed

    Supposedly, S&M copied the Kamakura button down collar exactly.
    I have a button down from both companies and can confirm.

    Spier & Mackay will be rolling out multiple RTW sleeve length options this fall if all goes as planned. Harris Tweed looks about as great as i'd expect it to. I really wish I had a microscope to take a closer look at a few amazing Italian wool/cashmere trousers and sweaters I have. Could always go into the path lab at our hospital but those are used for biopsy samples :X

    a Ralph Lauren RUGBY OCBD i have, which is actually awesome. The cloth looks great! the shirt is very soft and nice. It's too bad they don't make it anymore.


    this is a 346 non-iron I have. broad cloth, regular sort of modern dress shirt.


    this is a closeup of a lands end repp tie. the silk fabric is awesome.



    and a plaid made in china modern brooks brothers plaid shirt.

    Here are the LL bean shirts.

    first is the "hair" shirt,


    second is the "pinpoint" oxford. you can really see how it's down-sized oxford thread in the closeup. it's neat how it's sort of the same, just scaled differently.



    Then a late 1990's BB OCBD in a sort of seafoam color


    A lands end OCBD shirt in PURPLE.
