Hopefully it's ok to make a dedicated thread just for this specific workshirt like we do in the IH subforum.
Here are the pics that Manny sent me of my completed Arizona Workshirt in Candiani Black Denim.
I chose a custom fit which is in between his Slim L/XL. Should work for me as I measured a mix of my favorite shirts to get the fit i was looking for. I like flapped pockets so it was my choice and I went for copper buttons and black thread with chainstitch runoff on mine. I been wanting a black shirt in general for a while now and everything off the shelf just didn't look right or did not fit me well.
Literally about 10 business days from when I paid him to texting me that its shipped out, tracking says I will have it tomorrow morning.
I will post pictures when I wear it this weekend for my superbowl party at the house.
I was one of the fortunate ones to actually receive my shirts from LD, which I have no doubt were made by Manny. He does a great job, and your shirt is no exception. Lookin good! Also, I think its very cool that he could take the LD shit storm, and make a viable business from it. Kudos to Manny.
I have been thinking about using him. Still waiting for a CF work shirt, G does not do tall work shirts,and I'm not super fond of TS work shirt fit.
Where did you select your fabrics from.
I emailed Manny and asked what he had in stock. I asked what he had in black and chose that. He said he can get fabric if you want something special. Also, he does have a secret stash that he mentioned to me via text last night of nicer stuff.

Here are pictures of the fit, I actually sent it back to Manny as it wore too long for me but felt every other aspect was spot on for me in my opinion. Realized that all my buddies suck at taking pictures with my phone as it does not autofocus, so they didn't think to tap the screen (1st world problems and bad lighting).
First time for a heavy denim workshirt and I liked it a lot, pretty much on par with a trucker and I don't mind as I would wear it as shirt-jacket or as is with a tee underneath. Easily can fit my watches underneath the sleeve as I requested. My dad liked it so he is getting one made for himself now.
Wearing my TS democratic fit jeans with some adidas runners. I'm 5'8" 200lbs and it's fitted which I like (pictures may not show it but its fitted on me).
