@bluescholar While I'm not a big collar stay guy, I would stay tuned and look out for an update on this front from us in the near future. We're planning to be switching to brass collar stays standard on all shirts ordered, but I do not yet have the date for when we'll switch over. These shipped this morning from our supplier to our factory, but may take some time to set up. We'll also be selling these on their own on the website, I'd look out for that in a month's time at...
Makes sense...though, if the 16" fits you well right now after laundering I would not change it. Will only make the collar tighter...
The measurement that is in you saved profile is what we're cutting the shirt to be. If it is 16", it will come in closer to 16.5" and should shrink down to 16" over time.
@Andrew Ryan Exactly what I told our factory earlier this week! Hopefully we can get this going sooner rather than later. @jaidog Yes, I think there is a good chance this problem can be fixed with raised button placement. Will definitely update the forum when we have more news on the launch. As for the fit of the shirt, looks pretty close. Cuffs feel big at all?
@Andrew RyanIn almost all cases I believe this is what will happen, though I think there will be some niche cases where the spacing might change from our standard spacing. Probably only a very small amount, though.
@sebastian mcfox Yea--looks like the sleeves have a bit too much room. I'd suggest taking .25" off the cuff and .5" off of the sleeve width--please note this will make the sleeve feel tighter in the armpit. If you're worried about this, switching to tailored armpit fit and adding a degree of shoulder slope can help lower the armhole a bit.I'm not sure we want to go too much slimmer in the midsection, but you could probably do .5". If you let me know your order AC # I can...
@Andrew Ryan Yes, they will. In some cases you may gain an additional button on the placket, as well.
Hi--we actually use two slightly different weights in the collar leaf and collar band to get the perfect compliment of functionality and comfort. The interlining in the collar leaf (point) is significantly thicker than the fusing we use on our standard collars, and the interlining for the collar band is a pinch lighter than the lining in the collar leaf--but still thicker than our current fused interlinings.We found the thicker of the two interlinings really helps collars...
Totally--We won't be implementing the ability to specify an extra button in the short term (though we do have many requests for this). But rest assured that the button placement and number of buttons will be much improved in the next few weeks, and changing first button placement will often allow you to work around the system and decide how many button are on your shirt.
When we launch this feature, we will also launch a new portion of the size menu that shows how many buttons will be on the placket of your shirt. Raising the button placement can, in some cases, add an additional button to the placket.In many cases for those with 31"-32.5" shirt lengths, we will be updating to add an additional button to the front anyways. Not ready to launch yet, but soon.Yes and yes.The stiff collars are now live on the site--they are made from a thick,...
