Does anyone have experience with the two button mitered cuff, or the long one button cuff? I'm trying to find a cuff besides the standard one button barrel to try.

For the record, my sleeve length is 36.5", hence why I'm looking at these longer cuffs.

I use two button metered all the time. It's a lot classier, and it's my go-to. It can be irritating at times to do two buttons instead of one but it certainly won't kill you nor take more than a couple seconds.

doesn't seem you recd ny real concrete responses re your fit issues..

 

just wondering if u had the initial fit at the store,  or did you do all the initial measuring?

 

I think the shirt w/ the  rear darts looks good. but it is clearly too large above the darts....

 

 

overall the shirts do look a bit big  for you.

+1 on two button cuffs. I really like them for non-FC shirts.

 

I would say I'd like the cuff a tad longer and the buttons a bit more widely spaced than whatever the default specs are. Not sure if that's something PC would/could accommodate, but just my .02

I wear the soft 2 button cuff........very handsome...and classy...but casual

 

the mitered 2 butt is fused...a bit dressier...very hip...euro

I go 2 button mitered on all my shirts as well, love it.  I've always liked that it gives the cuff a more balanced appearance, if that makes any sense.

Posted this in NGNA to no immediate avail. Anyone here have any opinions?

I got my newest fit and and have washed it twice. It fits perfect in the midsection when I'm standing, but I'm not sold when I sit down. What do you think, half an inch too tight, or just right for a very slim fit?

That's me sitting up straight and sticking out my gut.

That bulge at the bottom is what concerns me.

And that's me slouching down while sticking my gut out.

Am I being paranoid? Or do I need to let it out a tad?

Here's a full standing fit pic.

Sorry for all the pictures of me sticking my gut out as far as possible!

Thanks for sharing! I run into the same issue, so don't apologize. My personal preference is to give it enough fabric so it's not skin-tight against my stomach when I sit down. 

 

Personally, I over-obsess about weight at stomach (my own shit in my head I have to deal with), so that's why I do it. In the end, if you're comfortable with what's going on there, keep it because it looks great when you're standing up. But a 1/4"-1/2" added to midsection may be something you're interested in.

 

Is that the PC Heavy Oxford, btw? Thoughts on the fabric? I actually just placed an order for the Japanese slub and Albini chambray five minutes ago.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm still very on the fence about it. I'll probably wear it a few more times before I place my best order, ironically for the striped albini chambray.

Yes, it's the heavy Oxford. I actually had a precious shirt like this in a larger size before some weight loss, and it eventually broke in to be quite nice for the price. They'll be on the stiff side for the first few months, however. But again, you can't beat the price.

It's all about what you can tolerate. Knowing my body, that snugness would scare me to high hell. Looks perfect when not moving (or breathing), but difficult from a functionality standpoint. I'm naturally a slow, deep breather (aka decent amount of chest expansion) which would leave me fearful of popping a button lol.

From the final pic, I'd say go a touch looser on future orders, and absolutely no tighter/slimmer in any way...doing so would leave yourself with an incredibly small margin for body fluctuation

Thanks for the insight. I'm thinking .25" (which would be .5" looser all the way around) might be enough. I emailed PC and they warned me that's a very small adjustment if I feel uncomfortable in the shirt, but it's not a comfort thing, I'm just trying to avoid a too-tight look for aesthetic purposes.

I'm pretty set on loosening the midsection now. What do you think? .25"? .5"?
post #1048 of 1607
Do you have any other shirts that would measure your Oxford + .25/.5 in your closet to test that midsection measurement out
post #1049 of 1607

Personally, I think it's 1/2"-1" too small in the mid.

 

I'm all about a slim fit as well, but I don't want to look/feel like a sausage ;)

from my experience, 0.25" won't really do much... when going through the same issues with my chest measurement over the last few orders the 0.5" is what made enough of a difference to be noticeable.
