    Yeah, the model shown is 168cm/5'6". I am 5'10". If you are taller, then it probably won't look like that. By the way, how do you guys embed instagram post?

    @Duke Mantee I don't know how all they all get the collar standing straight up. The collar is not reinforced and the fabric is soft after the first wash. For me, they just lay flat and spread out. @Broark Its based on the M1942 trouser but the top block, thigh and waist are a bit bigger. The leg opening seems normal like other FW tapered trouser. If you wear them with a double cuff like how I wear my M1942, the taper will not be as pronounced.

    Thanks! Good eye. It has been my daily for about three years now. A simple, understated, high contrasting design. @Broark Don't sleep on the Washburn. It's a pullover dress shirt. Fabric is made from cotton, rayon and linen. Really unique. Thick yet very breathable fabric. I would recommend the Langford as well but the band collar isn't for everyone though there is a regular collar version. Here is me wearing the white/sax Washburn with Miller trouser in navy moleskin.

    You are right. I believe FW owns the Stifel trademark.

    I just saw his IG post. Did a quick search on the web and found this. No wonder none of the retailers are showing pictures of the "Smoke 'em" and "Dope Runner" tee shirt. FW's design is more of a pipe with smoke coming out instead of the Swoosh. "Great logos can make a company. When a logo becomes prominent, it can also slip into the murky waters between design and trademark law. No Nike mark fits this situation better than what is officially termed the "Sunburst" log. The Sunburst design was initially sketched out by Nike's first employee, Jeff Johnson, after he saw the logo 1972 Olympic logo. (1972 Munich Logo) Nike's Trademark team filed the Sunburst in 1976 the US and it was registered in 1978. In the early 1980s Nike decided to move away from using it all together. Because the mark was not being used on product for sale, Nike was unable to renew the US registration. But, as the saying goes, everything old is new again. A new generation of designers began playing with history, and wanted to involve the Sunburst. So in 2008, Nike again filed trademark application to register Sunburst and gave Nike Sportswear the permission to use it as a brand mark, with the understanding that they don't alter the classic Sunburst design in any way. "The Sunburst is really, truly, in its infancy, like the Swoosh was back in its infancy in the 1970s." said Sedler. "So because of that, we have to be more pristine in our use of the Sunburst because it hasn't gained its fame yet." Which, of course, begs the question: How can a logo created in the early 1970s be considered in its infancy? Its an answer better left to the lawyers"

    It's cool design. I like it too. I haven't seen it from other brands. FW only put it on shirts with oversized collar tab. I noticed FW's earlier shirt pattern has smaller collars. Newer shirt pattern has bigger collars and FW increase the size of the collar tab on some models as you mentioned. @Iron Horse Very informative. Really appreciate the posts on collar design and pocket placement. @Duke Mantee That's quite a shirt collection. I don't think I have that many but I am not too far behind.

    @ecsong187 I doubt the Serviceman is still available. It's from 2012. You can check out the Ironalls short sleeve shirt. It's the last chambray short sleeve shirt release by FW. @SLAB Yeah, I know what you mean. The version I am wearing is beige x brown and somehow it looks light grey.

    @the shivman Yeah, same here. I was reading the Gandy Dancer and Bakehead fabric descriptions from Genco, the chain pattern discharge print is achieved differently than the wabash fabric. The pattern is achieved by dyeing post vs pre dyed twill? I am not that knowledgable about this. I thought wabash stripe is achieved by applying dye resist after the yarn is woven into the twill fabric, not before. Maybe it's lost in translation. Can anyone shed some light on this? Google translate "The fabric is made from 10.5 ounce cotton twill with a striped discharge print of a chain pattern. (cotton 100%) When making this fabric, I tried applying the discharge print of this chain pattern stripe to the conventional Wabash type dyed twill fabric, and it was said that the chain pattern was too fine to print cleanly. After trial and error, by performing a dye-printing with a stripe pattern on a post-dyed twill, that is, a twill that is dyed at the stage of the fabric, not at the stage of the yarn, instead of the pre-dyed twill base such as the Wabash system. , It is said that it is now possible to produce such a beautiful chain pattern. So, at first glance it looks like a Wabash system, but I think that you can enjoy a different discoloration feeling than the Wabash system. (Probably the color fading is slower than that of Black Wabash.)"

    @Duke Mantee I love Warlock and Kesey, especially Kesey. Looking at all your work shirt pictures reminds me of the issue of pocket placement with other brands. Some brands place the pockets way too high on the chest. I maybe alone in this but it looks awkward aesthetically.
