Awesome, thanks! I hope that they modify the collar band on the roma spread so that it stands more upright when left unbuttoned. Do you have any experience with either the Miles or the Stanton end on end. Is the Stanton worth the extra money?

'Popover' shirts, which is a term probably coined on the internet, were definitely not "...invented by GANT back in the '60's" as you state "Some claim" on your website. The suggestion that these were created by GANT OR that they were created in the 1960's is laughable. I can't imagine when these were "invented", probably after the Renaissance or something, but unless there was another GANT and you mean the 1860's, this type of garment was so common that by WWI it was issued to every Doughboy in the U.S. Army.

Question: Has anyone ever had trouble with the second button and pulling towards the shoulder? If so, what was the fix? In my case it happens even with a giant chest and yoke...

The problem might be related to your shoulder slope (square shoulders):

Yes to what oldschoolcool said. I had that problem, so the next shirt I ordered with Square Shoulders. It was better, but I ordered Very Square Shoulders for the shirt after that. The problem was solved without altering any of my measurements.

ordered my first (but very likely not my last) proper cloth shirts recently.  two heavy oxford shirts, pink and lilac.  unlined button down collar/placket/cuffs, rounded pocket.  wore them the last two days, laundered and ironed them myself (i ditched commercial laundering, which i think shrinks and maims shirts much more quickly.  i wash shirts normally, damp dry them for 12 minutes, and iron them myself with a good Rowenta iron).  love the color and feel of the fabric, love the fact i could have the left wrist a bit more roomy for a dive watch.  they fit well - i can't recall the dimensions exactly, but the fit is about equivalent to Brooks' Madison for a 17x35.  unlined may look a little more rumpled, but it's so much more comfortable, for me anyway.  Price is, relatively speaking, a bargain.  

 

i'm impressed.

I'm going to have to bite the bullet and give it a try. Will go for square shoulder. PC advised against it because it raises the armpits which are already snug. I have no choice cant deal with the pulling on that top button. Very uncomfortable. Thanks guys!

Should the body length of an OCBD be the same as a regular dress shirt? I normally get my dress shirts a little long so that they stay tucked in. What are your thoughts?

Anyone have pics of the club collar in the wild? I'm wondering how big the collar is compared to my Ervell club collar and it's hard to gauge based on the web pics.

Were you to get it in your "normal" length, do you think there's a legitimately chance your shirt would become untucked?

 

If so, and you intend to wear the OCBD tucked, definitely get it sized similar in length (perhaps a touch shorter) to your dress shirts.

Thanks, that makes sense. My dress shirts are normally long enough to cover my seat. With an OCBD i might go 2 inches shorter so that i have the option of leaving them tucked or untucked.

Has anyone else found their new selections a bit lacking? Seems like a lot of simple grids and blues/whites the past few releases. I appreciate when PC went a bit sexier with some of their fabric choices, and am looking forward to some of those selections in the fall. Also, bring back the corduroy!

I'm the opposite lol. I'd prefer more of the basic offerings in expanded colors.
