    All sounds great! Thanks for the info.
    I've got a few Savile Row Company shirts. They're quite good.

    Yes they are. I just wish they did the tab and pin collars in colours other than white for a change.

    Yes indeed! I guess they can be a niche style though.

    I started a thread on them a few years ago - here it is:

    They did get a very critical response, though the guy behind the business posted at the end and appears to have taken a lot of the suggestions on board. Your brown jacket you wore on Saturday, that DB one, is gorgeous. Late 40s American is probably my favourite tailoring style / era.

    I hear you on that. Others do do them, but mostly only in some sort of uber-skinny fit for teenage anorexics. I suppose white can be dyed for plain colours, but stripes would be nice. My perfect body regular wear shirts are Charles Tyrwhitt classic fit: if only they would do a spearpoint, a pinned spearpoint, and a club collar...

    Other than the wide shoulders (nothing wrong with them just not my style), I love that DB sportcoat. Overall, Cordite's stuff is looking pretty good. My question, though, is how high are the armholes?

    I like the look of the suits, very hollywood inspired. Basically, 1940s suits with 1930s details.

    Anyone have any recent experiences, the shirts specifically? I do like his Half Belt jacket, although I'd like a zip pocket on the other side as well personally.
