Hey guys,

Ive tried the structured Roma spread collar on my first shirt. It looks great with a tie but does not stand well when worn sans tie. Does anyone have a suggestion on a spread collar that looks good unbuttoned?

I like the pres soft spread......

Look through the past few pages. Post from PC rep stating that some collars will have a stiffer lining in collar band, which is what is needed. Roma spread needs that asap, IMO. Stiff band with soft collar is how you get great roll.

I had a similar issue with my roma spread collar and consulted one of PC's fit specialists. Turns out that the collar was sitting too low on my neck and that was causing the front placket to stick out. A 1/2 neck back adjustment fixed the problem. I cant say with certainty that you have the same issue but i would definitely consult one of PC's fit experts!

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

I have the same issue, where the 2nd button is tight across the upper chest. I think this is contributing to the problems. In my case, we were never able to resolve it. Changing slopes, widths, yokes, etc. I would also warn on making any adjustments on the smaller side, because shirts can arrive .25-.5 bigger/smaller.

Has anyone ever tried adding a boxpleat to their shirt? I am thinking of adding this along with a pocket to my ocbd since these are traditional details. If i understand correctly the box pleat adds some range of motion when reaching forward. Does the chest measurement need to be reduced to account for the pleat?
post #1492 of 1607

You should not reduce the chest measurement. The box pleat is mostly stylistic at this point, it serves very little functional effect on shirts.

I ordered my first basic shirt in the Hudson white wrinkle resistant twill. I am trying to build a solid rotation of shirts and would like to get a solid blue one next. I was wondering if anyone can suggest a versatile blue shirt that can be worn with a suit and tie or a sport coat? So far i have found the following:

1- Mercer light blue pinpoint
2- Miles 120s light blue end on end
3- Light blue 100s royal oxford
4- Regent light blue wrinkle resistant twill (not sure about the shine for a blue shirt)
5- Albini light blue chambray

Any other suggestions would be appreciated!

I'd go end on end - some subtle visual interest for a SC but dressy enough for a suit. Chambray is too casual, royal Oxford could work. I'd be wary of wrinkle resistant, stuff doesn't breath well. Make sure you like it first before you order more.

Thanks! I like the versatility of the end on end. Do you think it can work with a roma spread collar?

Subscribing to this thread, excited to learn more and stock up on proper fitting, Proper Cloth!  

 

It is great to see both the manufacturer and users represented here, reading this thread has already helped immensely.

 

Yesterday I ordered my third PC shirt,

my first 2 were ordered together, so they share sizing flaws (optimistic midsection, snug arms).

Yes, it'll work well with a Roma spread. I would not go soft Roma spread, do the regular.
