I think that cloth looks pretty good, maybe a touch lighter than ideal but close enough. +1 I have much more light grey than any other shade, and I wear them more as well, even to the point of almost making them my OnePant. I think they are distinctive in a subtle way--charcoal and even darker med. grey is too "office pant"-like...

He's led in to the washroom with the lights out. The lights are then raised, everyone zips or buttons up, and yells, "Surprise!" After much mirth and tears of joy, the recipient shouts, "Hey, mates...I...

Top of this page, "ID" thread for heel patterns/labels. Isaia is in there. If for some reason the image link is dead, search in B/S for Isaia (shouldn't be too hard to find) and there are almost always accompanying shots of labels.
15 min to iron???? I spend 3-5 min tops on a shirt using a good steam iron. Probably remove 90% or more of the wrinkles, many of which will invariably reappear during my commute. I think that grossly inflated ironing time is a classic bit of internet lore from a certain zealous moderator/underwear dealer from a foreign land.
Walked by JAB today and sign said "buy one get six** free." Actually not kidding.

If you have a 15" neck, a 15" inch collar won't physically fit around it. Shirt makers typically add .5" to your neck measurement to yield the correct collar size. Since a size 15 BB shirt is designed to fit a 15" neck, its collar size should be 15.5" post-shrinkage. Right out of the packaging, it will measure .25-.5" greater than that to allow for shrinking post-wash. My experience with the heritage fabric OC (must iron) is that it will shrink about .5" after washing.
