All collars with "Roma" in the name are based off it but slightly smaller in height and only have one button instead of two.

Yep, that's it. Sorry for the delay in reply.

It's not stiff...it's a happy medium between stiff and soft.

Like Murl said, not nearly as stiff as I expected, based upon what I'd read of it...definitely one of my favorite collars around.

I'm also torn between going Ivy BD, or doing a president collar. Would the standard President II look out of place on a linen/cotton shirt?

Thanks!

Did you order a linen/cotton shirt with a President II collar? If so how did it turn out?

You know it's interesting but a few years ago I would've thought it would be a combo that wouldn't work. I've noticed well dressed folks even in this thread who put fused collars on chambray, which also was traditionally a pretty casual fabric more for workwear than office wear. I think some cotton-linens look fine with fused collars if the fabric isn't too slubby and the dye isn't too noticeably irregular. Interesting how things evolve even in "classic menswear".

cham has changed so  much in recent years....from its appearance to how its worn.

 

I have the walker cham and w/ a soft pres its great w or w/o a tie....

 

you can dress cham up or down......but it has to be the correct cham.....lol

 

one of the best cloths around IMO....excluding an old school traditional dress code of course.....

 

its very very hip

 

PS...u say evolve?

 

I recall when u could not wear brown shoes w/ black or navy suits....!

I did get a shirt with the light blue herringbone cotton/linen blend, but with a soft president collar. Let me say, if you are thinking about ordering a shirt with the fabric, do it. It's my favorite shirt by far. The soft president spread works great on it as well.

I've been eyeing this one... any pics of the actual shirt?

I love the walker cham, wish they would make more shades. i think it's my favorite shirt, so I bought a 2nd ;)

 

the albini cham is nice too, but a bit dressier maybe.

Really surprised at how many of the fabrics on my wish list are sold out right now.  PC seems to need to do a pretty massive restock

I think they rotate out of lot fabrics - I've had some fabrics that never come back.

I have been waiting for the Mercer Royal Oxford to come back in pink for ages. I've got one each in the same line in white and blue in this and they are amongst my favourite shirts...
