Pretty dark, but definitely not a shirt I'd mind owning.

I think I took those photos as the sun was setting. Trying out this whole natural light thing to keep colors as accurate as possible. Clearly failing.

 

Here is the fabric on the website:

^ Nice. The original pictures made it look too dark for my liking.

I actually don't own a single shirt like that, but probably should at some point.

I own a lot of solid dress shirts and then a handful of ginghams in different colors and scales that I wear casually.

The cuffs seem small.

@Darkside Apprentice collar looks good.  Standard? or your own design?

They are on the smaller side at 2.25". I will probably go for the 2.75 next round.

It's the Stiff Roma Cutaway.

I really like it. Points are long enough to stay tucked under jacket lapels. The new "Stiff" Roma Cutaway is actually softer than the original Roma Cutaway, due to an updated interlining.

 

Would it be a bad idea to get this collar in an oxford cloth? I was thinking of these:

 not bad imo

@Darkside nice shirt. Looked a bit dark in the first pic, so I was wondering how you'd wear a tie with that. 

Some people say that cutaway collars and oxford cloth don't go together. I'm not one of them.

post #29952 of 37396

I have at least one Oxford cloth shirt in a spread collar and I like it. I know that's not OC, but the weight looks similar.

post #29953 of 37396

My favorite shirts are oxford cloth with spread and semi-spread collars.

Yes, but do you ever wear these without a tie or jacket, casually? 

post #29955 of 37396

I think spread collars are a tad harder to pull off without a tie, because the collar naturally spreads pretty wide when it's not buttoned, but it can be done.
