No big deal, obviously, and perhaps attributable to my being a bit lazy and saying "just like my last order except . . ." rather than spelling everything out again. These oversights may also have to do with them rushing to complete my order after losing it for a while, who knows? But the fit looks good, and the fabrics are great, so on balance I'm happy.
One additional note about forgotten details: I ordered a mix of fc and regular cuff shirts. I had asked that they not put an extra button on the sleeve packet on the fc shirts, but all the shirts came with that extra button. Here's what I had said in my order, which I think is pretty clear: "On the first three shirts (49, 24, 95) please use french cuffs, same style as previous order, but with no extra button on sleeve slit/placket. " I'm guessing that having lost my order for a while, they rushed a bit and overlooked these details (that sleeve button, the monogram, etc.) But even with those minor annoyances I like the shirts much better than and RTW shirt I could get for a reasonable multiple of the price. Anyway, the fabrics this time were:
The colors look fantastic and the material feels great on this one, but if a few places on the underside of one sleeve I noticed some tiny areas where the red/pink color appears to have "bled" a bit - looks like I spilled a few small drops of cranberry juice on myself. This did not happen on any of the other shirts, all of which are both a nice weight (non-transparent, comfortable) and with very bright, vibrant colors/patterns.
(open to suggestions on tie colors to match with this one, which is a bit "businer" than I normally wear);
