We're actually testing one with working button holes and one without working buttonholes to see which our customers prefer. The Salina Soft Multi-Check, made from a blue and white check Loro Piana tropical wool, comes without cut buttonholes.
Appreciate the feedback!post #138 of 17385/9/14 at 11:24ampost #139 of 17385/9/14 at 11:34amQuote:
Of course, folks might prefer one over the other due to pattern and styling, not having anything to do with the button holes.
I'm certainly not going to harp on this but the whole working cuffs for OTR fad is certainly popular (e.g., Suit Supply) but really doesn't make sense to me. It can result in disqualifying folks from being able to purchase or pushes people to buy something based on arm length, compromising fit elsewhere.
Nice jackets, though!post #140 of 17385/9/14 at 5:16pmWhy does working button holes change sleeve fit? As someone who has started dressing nicely in the past year or so, non working sleeves make me so angry, there are buttons, so why don't they work? I'm also a functionalist.
Also, going back to a post I made last week or so about wearing PC shirts untucked, it's just a matter of ordering it slightly shorter? There aren't any details on the placket or bottom of the shirt that make it appear like in wearing a dress shirt untucked? The scoops aren't too high or anything?
Also, that blue herringbone jacket is goooorgeous. Edit: aaaaaand just a little out of my price range. Damn.post #141 of 17385/9/14 at 5:25pmQuote:
Working button holes means that the sleeve length cannot be altered (unless altered at the shoulder, which is prohibitively expensive); therefore, if the OTR sleeve length doesn't work for you, you're SOL. This is why working cuffs are traditionally made after the sleeve length has been set, not before.post #142 of 17385/9/14 at 6:22pmpost #143 of 17385/12/14 at 4:29pm
Great to see you guys here, have been a long time fan.

Is it possible to come in and try the jackets in the NYC office?
Also here in the UK, where I temporarily am, it is a similar price to alter from the shoulder or the sleeve. In fact the tailor I go to here does such a good job I tend to bring stuff over from the US just for tailoring. I haven't been able to find something similar in the US.post #144 of 17385/15/14 at 1:22pmQuote:Originally Posted by MSchapiro

Hey MSchapiro, Proper Cloth does have jackets available in their NYC office for you to try out. They might have sold out of some sizes though. You can check what size they have left on the jacket product pages:post #145 of 17385/21/14 at 11:30am
Fabric samples arrived today! They are a great weight, the purple striped oxford is a little bit heavier and would be great for a year round shirt.
Top: Purple striped oxford, Eggplant end on end (amazing color)
Middle: Howard Street chambray (one of my favs), Navy oxford
Bottom: Black heavy oxford (basically just an overall grey look)
Basically now the Purple stripe oxford, eggplant end on end and the chambray on my list of future purchases. We'll see if I got the fit down when my blue oxford shows up on Friday.post #146 of 17385/21/14 at 12:13pmpost #147 of 17385/21/14 at 1:16pm
I think it's ok until you get your first little snag and the black thread pops out like a sore thumb. No different than any other oxford but the contrast of the two threads is higher. Overall I don't think it's for me.post #148 of 17385/21/14 at 2:03pmpost #149 of 17385/21/14 at 2:15pmQuote:
I have to agree about the Howard Street, seems like a great fabric. Looking forward to your thoughts on it once you get the shirt in hand. I think it will be my next purchase.post #150 of 17385/21/14 at 3:01pmQuote:
It should be an awesome casual shirt. I know Seph at PC was wearing it when I came in to get measured. I wasn't sure if I was gonna wear it tucked or untucked so he went with an in between length. Hopefully that'll be fine, otherwise I should should a length and stick with it for future orders
