My Saunders are labeled on the tongue. I can also testify they are much nicer than the Katmais I have handled on previous occasions. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Received Richmond quilted jacket. Returned Richmond quilted jacket. The large, as it turns out, is actually extra-medium.

I bought two custom fit dress shirts in the private sale.
They have box pleats (which I dislike) and were offered only by neck size (no sleeve option).

Is this a change? I bought a custom fit shirt a few months back on B&S and it was a 16-35 Regent with the two side pleats. Today I'm wearing an old one that's a 15.5-34 Andrew (which I think is a soft point collar although I have never seen another one in a store) and it also has the 2 shoulder pleats and is sized by neck AND sleeve.

There is nothing wrong with the shirts...but I really don't like the box pleat and that's why I jumped on these instead of getting some more BB slim or extra-slim.

I'm wearing a custom fit right now (granted, made in Italy) that I bought a few months ago and it has side pleats. I also bought three shirts at the outlet a couple weekends ago that were custom with side pleats and 32-33 sleeves. Interesting yours has box pleats and now arm measurements.

How long are the arms on yours?

I quite like the herringbone SC that I bought from Rugby. It fits slightly larger than expected and I'll probably end up taking it in a bit on the sides.

Its been at least a year now that its all sold neck size. Kind of unfortunate as they're a tad long on me, I guess I could get them shortened, but I've been lazy.

Maybe it is because the one I tried is a buttondown oxford collar rather than the regent spread.

I have not actually unwrapped the new regent to see if it is box or side pleat so maybe they still have side pleats. Unfortunate about the sleeve sizing...I think I might be better serviced by a 15.5, but without the sleeve option, they are going to end up too short.

Also, what is up with the thead title?

I've never been a fan of those cuts. The best ones are Bradford and Garrison.

FTFY. Garrison's lapels are a tad too wide to be timeless.
