Yes. Miles and Stanton are both excellent (wrinkle little, feel pristine, look very white) but they're not fully opaque. I don't think it's too bad though, and I never wear a undershirt. TM is slightly stronger in weight though and thus more opaque.

Looking to fix this issue on my next order, as you can see in the picture there is serious placket droop going on. The neck is defienatly too large by atleast .5 but I am not sure if thats the only issue causing that sag. Any opinions would be welcome.

I will also be slimming the arms on the next shirt, any other alterations you suggest





?

Albini Oxford chambray with Roma soft spread. Fabric is wonderful...super soft. Collar is nice, but not sure it's for me.

Does the wrinkled shirt really make it hard to diagnose a floppy placket? Sorry, I will iron and retake if it will help.

I aint mad at ya.....

 

I wasnt really pointing that remark all to you....

 

its just much easier to critique a fit w/ a nicely ironed and tucked shirt....or a shirt left out of slacks even

 

 

I will add that PC shirts often have that flaccid area..lol.....I dont know y....

 

mine as well...but I always wear sans tie...collar open......so that issue is never really seen

 

 

in addtn, I have come to accept my Pc shirts as great values...fun to have made........and understand they r not bespoke.

 

I do think making the collar tighter will help

 

btw, that collar seems large....... can I ask your ht??

Did you lower the second button at all? I've noticed the gap between collar and second button bulges a bit (somewhat like your issue) on my shirts with a lowered second button.

 

In any event, it shouldn't be an issue, even if it is bad. You're presumably either wearing a tie, or with at least the collar undone, which will eliminate/cover the issue. The only way it would be noticeable is if you do the air tie look, and in that case you'd have bigger issues than a wonky button issue lol.

I think it depends on body type, but I don't find the collars to be near as big as they're made to seem. I happily wear the Milano II sans tie from time to time. I think it makes for a very sharp look.

I agree re body type.....

 

and I do think it can be sharp,.......... but there can be a thin line bet sharp and pimpish:bounce2:

I dont think I mentioned but last week  I drove down to SoHo....ordered 4 shirts...

 

my first test shirt arrived...Miles broadcloth.........very very nice...super value..........soft, luxurious, smooth, drapes well.........opaque?..nope..not at all...who cares...?...not me.

 

 

Tried a soft franklin........very hip, very LA, very downtown NYC cool.....no tie....also tried rear darts....why?...just love the hip look.........always have.

 

some here have said a custom shirt should not require darts?...perhaps.....I just like the look....annnnnnd these PC shirts are not bespoke.......not at all......the darts clean up the rear..they do.

 

ever watch Ray Donovan???........think of his white shirts.....lol

 

next up?....a colo bd.......

 

all my past orders were the soft bd..I love it.....even tho I wish it were a wee bit smaller in scale...not much tho

a good iron and that placket might not do that.  also, perhaps consider a placket that's lined (if that is unlined).

Late comment from me but I think you've got other issues going on there - you're right shoulder has a lot of pulling going on to the front top 2 buttons, it shows both when you have the collar buttoned or not. There's also a peculiar bump/roll of material on your left shoulder lat. I suspect that you need some of PC's posture type adjustments - the neck position forward/back and maybe even a change on the armhole (I think they have a full/tailored option). I don't know the exact remedy, PC probably knows, but to my eye it's more than just tweaking your size a bit. My .02 hope it helps!
