I watched "1911" last week and the costuming was very authentic. Every shirt in the movie was made of linen. It turns out that despite what the Chinese wore on the outside -- silk or wool -- they always had linen next to their skin in the form of a shirt. I totally understand why.

In the pic you see diagonal "folds" of cloth around the upper chest. These are highlighted with black lines. They exist because the shoulder of the shirt was cut for someone with higher shoulders than yours. If the slope of the shirt's shoulder matches yours, the chest area would be very clean.
But this is just one aspect. Shirts are a long story. There is the fit, there is the construction, and there are the proportions. I wouldn't even know where to start.
And yeah, "C" is your pricing category. What are you planning to get?

A recent haul

I asked Ah Loke to make me a slim fit shirt, the shoulders were beautifully clean, but everything else was almost a disaster. Too much pulling and lines on the waist, looked very ugly without a suit covering it up. Pity though, because it was the first time I wore a 120 cotton shirt and it felt so good.

I may make another attempt when I think I have found a way to relate these things. But really, a reason calculus is so abstract is because it cannot be made any more concrete without losing it's universality. To talk about shirts in a simple way will cause the creation of simple, unsophisticated shirts.

I've had some shirts made by Joe's and Iris in Singapore for between SGD130 - SGD160 each.
I've heard a lot about Jantzen, I'm thinking of visiting them since I'll be in HK for 5 days.
What do you think?
