Both went to charity shortly thereafter, ouch. (Note: I did not engage PC to address either, I could/should have but just didn't have time then to give it proper attention - my fault) .

But I'm still a PC fan and I'm excited about enough of their recently added fabrics to consider rolling the dice again but I'd feel better if someone with a similar experience could say ""I had the same thing and this [new collar/collar option/interlining option] fixed it for me!"

Anyone?

This has nothing to do with the shirt, and isn't really helpful, but I've found totally unlined jackets help—the friction keeps the shirts from moving much in the upper chest and shoulders.

Then what is it?

post #1458 of 1607

the collar band needs to be stiffer, i believe.  I think that is a flaw in PC's designs - not a stiif enough collar band

Can that be fixed by ironing and starch?

Does anyone have a good fabric recommendation for a pleated front tuxedo shirt? I need to have one made for a wedding. I am thinking either Broadcloth or Royal Oxford? What is the right move?

I like broadcloth. It will wrinkle more, but that shouldn't really be a concern as it will be covered.

 

My thought is that the pique-ish nature of the royal oxford might clash a bit stylistically with the pleats.

Awesome! Thanks! 

 

Any recommendations on the numerous Broadcloth offerings? 

post #1463 of 1607

I'd probably opt for the Thomas Mason (white, obviously) broadcloth. If ever there's an excuse to go top of the line, tuxedo time is it!

I would actually suggest a twill over broadcloth or RO. Twill will be most opaque and drape the best. The shine of a twill will help it look whiter and photograph better. If you want under $100, then Hudson. Best value overall, then Greenwich Twill ($140). Best of the best of the best, go DJA Sea Island Royal Twill.

If you want to do broadcloth, our Miles, Stanton, and TM Broadcloths are all great. TM will hold up best over time, but handfeel is very similar for all three.

We actually updated the construction of our President Spread, English Spread, and Londoner collars to use a special (stiffer) style of interlining in the collar band. The leaf remains pliable. Response has generally been since we implemented. Semi Spread, Straight Point, and President Cutaway are all getting the same update in the next week.

Thanks, @ccallis. Do you recommend the twill even with the pleated front shirt? 

 

Also, I assume the new collars (President Spread II, etc.) have the stiffer collar band, too? Any other collar updates coming?

Chris,

 

Is this something that could perhaps be made to be more common knowledge? Maybe something included in mailers to newsletter subscribers?

Would be great to update the Roma spread and cutaway as well, please, with the stiffer interlining.

Of the three broadcloth offerings (Miles, Stanton and TM), which is the most opaque? It appears that it would be the TM?

 

Thanks!
