Great looking shirt and pants. I always felt that mens' clothing is SO much more difficult and time consuming than womens' clothing. So my hat is off to you!

IMO the collar & stand is one of the trickiest things to sew in the entire world and your results look very professional. Superb.

Fantastic work!!! You have done such a great job on that collar and on the felled seams. I am really impressed by your work. This is a seriously smart looking shirt!

Man, you look like a million bucks in this outfit! Very classy. :o) Look how PEREFCTLY the lines on your pocket line up with the lines on the shirt. Is this trick photography? Ha! I do envy you being in Boston with (I would imagine) lots of wonderful fabrics from which to choose.

Definitely very impressive results - I appreciate just how much time it takes to make a good looking mens shirt.

I have this pattern but am unbelievably chicken about making a shirt for my husband. I think mens' clothing looks really tricky to sew. You have done a fantastic job. Thank you for your very helpful review.

I want to thank you all for your kind comments. You all are really great. I have been thinking about what y'all are saying about men's wear being difficult to make. I think I feel the same way about making clothes for DW. You just have a horse-sense of what works and what doesn't. Not having this just puts you outside of your comfort zone. I think dresses are hard!!! So the one thing that gives me the comfort zone when I sew women's clothing is to measure meticulously. I keep a ruler (in metric!) at the sewing table, and another one at the ironing board-just like having a pair of clippers at each sewing machine. You don't want to have to go looking for something when you need it so often. Anyhoo, this was my crutch, might work for you. Mark Zieg

Great shirt!! I'm one of the "odd" ones that likes to make men's shirts...lots of straight lines and cooperative fabric. A refreshing change from darts, gathers, zippers, sheers,........ Nice work and helpful review!

I love making men's shirts, have used this pattern and appreciate your review and photos. Nice to get a stitching man's view point. Your fabric photographs well. It is hard to find good men's shirtings but gets some nice ones in (Zegna). Also Margaret Islander has a DVD you can rent now (!) on attaching the band to the collar and it is a technique I find very helpful. Hope to see more from you!

WOW...great sewing! I like the fabric and the detailing is excellent! It pays to let your little ones use that sewing machine. They grow up sewing!
