I like the new neck sizes. That really makes a difference for me. I'm in for a YH3. Looking forward to it.

Should we expect much shrinkage? I wear an XL in Epaulet shirting (and they can still be a touch tight) but looks like I "measure into" a YH 3. Measurements are very similar to a shirt I currently own that fits well but that shirt has been laundered - concerned about a perfect fit pre wash/too tight post wash. Also, now much room is there in the arm hole. As someone who is in decent shape and works out a bit (not a lot but apparently enough)  tightness there is a common problem for me with off-the-rack shirts.

Horses. Which I guess you can't actually see. They are there though.

Not much if any at all. I have had mine laundered and pressed countless times and the sizing has remained pretty consistent.

We just picked up our Japanese Sunwashed Chambray Napoli Dress Shirts. Holy crap, these are THE ULTIMATE Summer dress shirt. I'm fortunate enough to not really need a dress shirt for July and August, but with temps in September and October here in NY more like they were in August when I was a kid, these are going to be the perfect compliment to our casual summer button downs. I expect photography to be done by tomorrow or Tuesday and these will be up ready to ship mid-week. So lightweight, and gorgeous....we have one in light blue and one in light grey.

Did you take pre-orders on these already or are they going online mid week?

Nope, the pre-order was just on the Heirloom Button Downs, these should be live tomorrow night.

Japanese Sun Washed Chambray Napoli Dress Shirts are ready fellas. They are incredibly lightweight and dry and PERFECT for the summer and early Fall when temps are more summer like than they've ever been. Available in a light blue and a super light grey (our answer to "Can I get something that acts as a white shirt that ISN'T just a plain white shirt?") and available now.

Have you got pics of that collar under a jacket? I'm trying to visualise it. Thanks!

That light grey shirt looks really nice. I agree with Mcfox can we see it under a jacket? The proportions look nice and comfortable which instantly caught my attention.

Sent a PM about the heirloom preorder.
post #1992 of 2334

I hope these are well enough received to get some level of customization allowed moving forward. As stands, the YH4 would be a bed sheet on me, and would need the collar remade :confused:

I took a look at the various pics posted of the light blue and light grey chambray but the pics seem a bit hazy and small. Is it possible to post ITT a large, crisp pic of both?

I'd encourage you to discuss this with your shirtmaker. All the custom shirtmakers I've worked with built in an allowance for shrinkage. Different fabric responds differently with oxfords typically shrinking a 1/4" and fine poplins 1/8' or so in the collar. Their RTW shirts, such as a 16 neck are actually a 16.25, to allow for this. So the tagged size is the estimate post shrinkage. Most suggest washing and ironing 3-4 times for the full effect.
