They may be too small in the waist after washing. Maybe you should sell those for a small profit?
Great, thanks man. I purchased the unfused ivy's.
Thanks for the feedback. I was worried that a thinner fabric would hang sloppily. I intend on wearing this with wool/linen/cotton pants, no tie or jacket, in a business casual setting where i'm in management. I wanted to tone down the formality from spread collar and thought this would be a great way to do so.
For Dress shirts worn without a tie/jacket, do you guys recommend fused collars/cuffs? (I'm looking to buy button downs for work.)

Hey @ccallis I had 3 questions: 1- I'm about to place a order after the first (remade a few times). The armpit holes (standard size) are still tight.

I sent an email to support to see what if anything be done to improve the next order. My dry cleaner lost most of my shirts so I had to order a few regardless. If you can check it out please let me know. Order...
Anyone else have trouble with the arm-hole sizing being too small? If so how did you fix it? In my case, neither Tailored or Standard armholes are working out. We kept letting out the chest/arms until it fit but still not 100% comfortable. I have less than .5" of space with my arms at a natural stance. If I'm sitting at a desk (shoulders forward slightly while typing) its 'wraps' my armpit. This shirt would be my 3rd re-try . Subsequent shirts were ordered 'square'...
