Do you have a pic with jacket and tie? Would love to see the relationship between collar points and lapels.

Has anyone gotten the polos?

And are they only in those three colors/only standard sizing?

So, except for the DJA Sea Island cotton, does anybody have a white broadcloth they highly recommend?

Stanton and Mercer are basically the same price. Which is nicer? Any experience?

Mercer is no good. Miles was nice (and inexpensive) albeit very light, but sadly out of stock for now.

 

The Canclini Broadcloth they once had was also brillant (very crisp and opaque while not too heavy), sadly this is another great fabric that wasn't ever replaced ...

 

I'll try the Stanton now.

What did you dislike about the Mercer?

Hard to say, since I was able to compare now with two much better fabrics (in my opinion). Just to point out the differences:

 

The Mercer felt kind of stiff (bad stiff) with a slight sheen (which I absolutely can't have), where was the Miles is very soft, completely 'matte' and doesn't wrinkle easily, so looks crisp all day despite its weight. The Canclini meanwhile, while no sheen either, is very crisp and just feels higher end.

 

Fwiw, I could be slighly biased though because I hadn't dialed in my fit on the Mercer yet, which makes the other two look all the better.

 

Hey, for all those who can't decide, get one of both if you have your fit straight, can't ever have too many crisp, white shirts.
