I might as well reply to my own post now that I can answer the question. The roll of the collar is much more pronounced than the prior BB oxford cloth shirt. It's just two pieces of cloth at the collar and cuff, no interlining. The fit remains the same. The chest pocket has been deleted, in keeping with the "original" version. The color selection is a bit more interesting than I've seen in recent years, several solids and a handful of stripes. At the moment it...
Curious to know if anyone has any experience with this shirt? I've ordered one in purple; they didn't have the extra slim at the San Francisco store. The shirt is quite soft and unstructured, due to the lack of interlining. It's much softer than the non-iron shirts, which I will no longer be buying due to their sandpapery feel. http://magazine.brooksbrothers.com/american-icon-returns/

One by one the original bespoke afficianados slowly packed their bags and left. Who were they? Manton, Iammatt, Mafoofan, Voxsartoria, and others whose names I've forgotten. I miss both their expertise and willingness to share their bespoke experiences. Maybe they simply outgrew the forum or felt what they contributed wasn't reciprocated.
I accept whatever it is the laundry does back there. I'm guessing the pleat goes somewhere to the middle of the back.
