He looks like maybe, just maybe, he realizes that he has a CUSTOM TAILORED shirt just for him. It turned out great!

IMHO mens button-up shirts are one of the hardest things to make. You did a wonderful job on this one!

Wow, this shirt looks better than a RTW Pendleton, if that is possible! You did an amzing job with the plaid match and the fit. He looks terrific in this shirt!

Very nice work! Amazing how the men's styles hardly change at all (I was just noticing that in the movies). Your collar sits beautifully, and the plaids are matched masterfully. The hub looks so happy! I'm about to launch into one of these myself, so I was glad to hear about lining the inner neckband with cotton--great idea! The RTW Pendleton shirts are lined with nylon in the yoke, and I also noticed a lot of their edges aren't even finished. Maybe because they expect you to dry-clean them.

That is a really nice shirt. Great job on matching the plaid. How lucky you are to live so close to Pendleton.
