don't know of a hard and fast rule...but 1.5" is quite common....

 

re no placket as being more dressy or casual,.......that too is all over the map  as to  what it really is.

I have several PC shirts with plackets and they did strike me as narrower than usual the first time I opened a box with a placketed shirt.  After 1 or 2 wears I stopped caring.

 I noticed...and after 1 wear I no longer cared...lol

I ordered one with a button down collar as a casual shirt. It feels amazing and is very lightweight. However, the light weight means the shirt is very translucent. In addition, a white undershirt will show too easily. You might want to consider wearing a light grey/beige undershirt underneath. Uniqlo Airism shirts work well as they are equally breathable.

LOL what have I started?

If @Seph is paying attention, let it be known that there just may be dozens of us who want a wider placket option! Dozens!

Anyway, soft Roma cutaway is the bomb-dot-com. I got my (placket-less) linen-cotton shirt today and am super impressed. Also the long one-button cuff is perfect, too. As far as I'm concerned I guess I feel like I'll never need to buy another spread-collar dress shirt from anywhere else, ever.

Straight outta the box pics:





The collar is almost identical to the Eidos collar, by the way. Which is why I picked it (I compared measurements of my Eidos chambray before buying and sure enough, in person they match up almost exactly).

What is considered normal?

Edit - Looks like it's 1.25" wide.

 and wonder what would be considered normal. I do think that the soft placket that I use on more casual shirts is excellent, however. For my most dressy shirt I use the "no placket" option, which Proper Cloth describes as "casual" but which has never seemed so to me.

On another subject, I heartily recommend the Japanese Basketweave cotton fabric (PCF1329). I ordered a "OCBD-style" shirt in that fabric recently and wore it for the first time this weekend. It's lovely and soft, the texture is interesting, and the color is a very warm white. I think it's going to be a great summer casual shirt. I liked it so much I ordered a second one.

Literally tens of people! Maybe even twelve!

Cool stuff @mossrockss definitely looks great. It looks better sans tie than I would have expected. Always a nice plus.

 

Also, I'll be trying out the long 1 button eventually. So far all my non-FC PC shirts are 2 button cuffs

post #1228 of 1607
Long one button (soft or fused) is where it's at, for sure. I've only had one soft Roma, but I have two on order right now. It's definitely a nice collar, but I like it best when worn sans-tie with a jacket. One of these will also be my first no-placket shirt, so it will be interesting to see if I notice a big aesthetic difference... One way or another, at least I'lll know my placket is StyleForum approved. So that'll be nice.
post #1229 of 1607

looks good.....

 

 i usually get a soft 2 button cuff.....but Ill try the loooong 1 button too.

 

I asked PC a few yrs back about the narrow placket but then they had no plans to mod it....now I'm a fan of French!

 

I gotta submit some pics here....

post #1230 of 1607
to be honest the long one-button isn't really that long. but it's the curve that I like. i associate the notch you get from a curve like that (or a more deeply-cut mitered edge) with rakish and very stylish men. happy i found this
