Kent, did you change the buttons only for the pique polos, or for the striped jersey polos too?
I could imagine that the more substantial buttons work perfect for the thicker and rougher pique fabric, while for the thinner and smoother jersey fabric the thinner buttons would eventually be the better choice?
Yes, new polos are here:
All polos in this batch, and going forward, will have thicker MOP buttons. If you're wondering which polos still have the old buttons, there aren't that many. And no, we can't go through the shirts to check for you; this would be a logistical nightmare.
Navy is already sold out. The next shipment will be September.
I made a few XXL in white only to try out.
Yes, I think large would be best.
I might introduce the navy grenadine 3.5" in a longer length in October as a trial to see if there is sufficient demand. It's expensive to stock so many different sizes of each tie. It might not even be a good business decision to stock 3" but I do it because that's what I wear.
