This is my 3rd Archer, and my most professional-looking one yet! This shirt is all about the details: contrast pocket, contrast inner sleeve cuffs, grosgrain ribbon on the button placket, tower plackets on the sleeves, hand-sewn false French seams on the armhole seams (with regular French seams everywhere else), and a contrast bias-faced hem.
The main fabric is Robert Kaufman pinpoint Oxford (100% cotton shirting), which presses like a dream and makes a really crisp, office-appropriate shirt. The polka dot contrast is a quilting cotton, and the ribbon is 100% cotton grosgrain.
