i'm pretty sure that's the model i was commenting on in my post earlier in this thread.

I haven't seen any of the stuff that Oxxford is supposedly making for BB. Do you think this relationship is a move by del Vecchio to sniff out relieving Hayes of IAG?

Am pleading ignorance, my natural state.

Oops! Sorry, I somehow missed that.

Also, not a fan of the weird round flap in the front shirt tail and the locker tag on the neck. I wouldn't mind a third back collar button, though. Anyone still make those?

This has been my experience as well. I actually took a measuring tape one day and found that the BF had almost 2" more across the chest than the slim fit. My best fitting RTW shirt these days is Brooks' Extra Slim Fit, fits like a dream, absolutely no alterations needed..

Is this a Black Fleece OCBD? It looks really good open and tieless, but I think it looks a bit flat with a tie on. If it's Black Fleece, I wonder if that's because of shorter collar points.

No. It's his new MTM project, which he discussed in this thread:

Greg's project must be at least somewhat successful if it was mistaken for Black Fleece.

I agree. Looks great w/ no tie, but when the collar is buttoned & there is a tie, the collar looses it's character.

The collar does seem flat, but let's see how it looks after a few more washes. Also, this is Greg's first shirt from MT and it can only get better from here.

I agree ... it feels flat when buttoned. While I am hoping it will improve with time, I am open to suggestions on how to improve it.
