Canta - are you suggesting that I can simply move the buttons up on the current configuration to add more roll? I've played with that idea but thought it would throw off the whole collar.
that is exactly what you need to do.

That's what I thought. I sent my first one back for half a size smaller, and this one is rather slimfit (straight from the package):

Nice fit, doesn't look like it needs to be slimmer.

Not bad! Surprisingly I always found T&A to have the slimmest fit in their regular line.

I had been looking at those H&K shirts. Unfortunately, they don't do a 37" sleeve...

I was a bit surprised by the difference between half sizes. I think I can work with this smile.gif. The downside is that most of their interesting (fabric wise) slim fit shirts have french cuffs, and I don't want those. These have rounded two-button cuffs, which are fine, though I prefer one button cuffs. And they have too many shirts with their classic collar, which I just find bit too boring for me. This is their wide-spread.

Agreed all around :-)

When you order, you can indicate that you want to have the sleeve length changed. But you probably already knew that?

Yea. I'm fairly certain it will work.

Out the shirt on and move the collar points around until you get the desired roll. Make a note of where the buttons should be.

Like I said, the spread looks too narrow on that shirt but you can still get all the roll you want.

If it doesn't work out, having to resew two buttons is a fairly modest price to pay.

Ich_Dien, H&K slim fit shirts are slim. Not as slim as Barba, but they are perfect for business wear (in europe).
It looks like the new ones have labbelled buttons though, I hate that.

Canta and TD - thanks for the suggestions.

Cheap, I know but I got reversible cuffs so I can wear them with cufflinks, and without --

Fit: Meh. Loose at the back, It's fine when I don a jacket, however. And sleeves (arms) are much too loose. Comfortable though.

After all that I wasn't expecting this...
