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 concur with everything you said.
I think some of the linen-cotton blend shirts can serve a similar purpose. Of course in both cases chambray and cotton-linen there is variation in how dressy or casual the fabric can be. I think some of the Oxford and herringbone cotton-linen blends PC has been offering can go with a variety of collars and still work even though soft is safest.

About brown or walnut shoes and navy suits--
My brother recently teased me for doing a conference presentation while wearing such. I have more walnut colored shoes by AE than any other color but still like to wear grey or navy pants or suits.

doesn't the PC site explain all?......I think it does...that's your best info right there.

It doesn't have written explanations for a couple of those collars on the site yet.

I would shoot them an FYI email...some things may have failed to transfer over from the old site.

I know they used to have collar descriptions...

I think they still do......just not those collars...lol

You have to go into the shirt builder to get the descriptions. When you're on the collar tab there will be a info link for each collar to tell you about it. In short, English spread has shorter collar points than the President but a similar spread. The Londoner has a wider spread than either of the other two.

Hey all, any input on how to increase the elbow/middle arm area measurements? Ideally, this could be done without increasing the upper arm/bicep measurement, but it wouldn't be the end of the world to have a slightly wider bicep measurement if it meant for a bit more flexibility further down.

 

Also, if one was to expand the bicep measurement, what would a safe increase be, .5" or so?

 

@ccallis any input would be awesome.

good ?........I feel some of my shirts are a wee bit tight there......

 

but it all depends on the upper arm measurement u give them.....and or u can try a double pleat on the lower arm if u r using a single.

 

but there isn't that many options to really customize that area.

The double pleat option is a good idea, though that works to provide a bit more breathing room further down the arm, right about where the gauntlet button buttons, in my experience.

 

I will probably wind up slightly increasing the upper arm measurement. It would definitely be preferred if there was a specific measurement for the elbow/middle arm area, but having a slightly wider than optimal upper arm is worth more flexibility at the elbow.

I'm going through the same thing.  I have switched to double pleat which has helped, but next I am going to try adding .25" to the upper arm and the cuff.

This is something I have had issues with as well. I would recommend even going for the triple pleat option. It's my default setting since they started offering it. If you have even slightly big forearms I don't think it will feel too blousy or anything. I still wish there was a separate measurement for the forearm or elbow area. I've been considering increasing the bicep area as well since it's still a bit snug at the elbow and widest part of the forearm for me.

In your experience, does the triple pleat extend far enough up to the elbow area, or is it strictly a forearm thing? As of now, the double pleat seems to do the trick for me, while maybe remaining just a wee bit snug...the triple pleat is certainly something to consider.
