Well Of Course I Made One For Myself.... Carlo Riva Baby Blue

A year and a half ago I used a Canclini Rothschild 200 cotton to make this exact same shirt. The trouble is, I wear shirts every day, so after 18 months; and I should say, I rarely get through any meal without putting half of it down my front - I was not raised that well, we ate with the food in the centre of the table, so it was an all-in grab kind of affair, which meant that a good deal of it, between hoarding and wolfing, would land on your shirt - I'm drawing for a breath here - so, alas, after 18 months, it needed replacing - and this time we used Carlo Riva fabric. 
This is a particular collar that gets my shirt maker shitty. The arrow point really takes an extra bit of time to complete, along with the contrast band on the cuff. He doesn't like to do it for me, let alone my clients - so we usually add on a little extra because of the time it takes. Regards, N.
