post #1531 of 1607

Just ordered a few denim/Indigo, approaching 50 PC shirts in the last 45 days.  Wearing today the Japanese light denim, and excited to see the heavyweight Albiate choices, and already bought a few of the Iceland greys.  With my size dialed in, these are all the best fitting shirts I own.

 

Lacking any history, the site works great, it is easy, intuitive.

 

Highly recommend your service.  

And FYI, learned of your company here on SF.

Hudson Jackets
We recently released a whole new range of sport coats that we've been hard at work on for a while now. We really love these Hudson Jackets and think they're a truly incredible product. They're fully-canvassed, soft shouldered, use premium Italian wool/cashmere fabrics from E Thomas, two-buttoned, unlined, have functional sleeve buttons, shanked horn buttons, and patch pockets. Check. Them. Out. (and look out for suits and expanded sizing later in winter)

Chris,

Would you ever consider making these jackets without the functional buttons? They sound like great jackets, but the functional buttons make them very expensive to alter. For many of us, I suspect, that's a deal breaker.

What are the chances of PC making pants in the future? I love getting shirts that actually fit me, and I would also love to get pants that fit me...

+1. Deal. Killer.

Particularly odd for PC whose business is based on MTM; providing clothes to fit the customer individually. Functional buttons OTR wreck that.

I have had the same issue. Years of rock climbing has made my forearms almost as big as my bicep area. Even otherwise baggy off the rack dress shirts are tight at the forearm.

 

I started doing the 3 pleat option which helped but not enough. Besides now using the 3 pleat option I have added a quarter inch to the bicep area on my PC shirts. It now fits a bit loose at the bicep but it's not that bad. I would be absolutely ecstatic if they added another measurement around the forearm but do not know if that's logistically feasible for them in the near future.

 

On another note, has anyone tried their really thick flannel shirts such as the country flannel? Does it seem durable enough for hiking, camping, wearing as an over shirt, etc?

+1. I've yet to go triple pleat, but I increased the bicep measurement by 0.5" (will revert to 0.25) and that sorted out the forearm issue.

 

If you're currently doing double pleats, and will not go triple, you're likely going to be SOL unless you're willing to adjust elsewhere.

rock climber...

 

your forearms may be larger than norm..

 

mine are not!..lol

 

and yes.....I may be SOL if Im not willing to go bigger upper arm

@shirtsnob the 3 pleat doesn't make the cuff look"busy" as the pleats are spread out around the cuff. FYI

post #1541 of 1607
Is there an option for non-pleated cuffs? Didn't think I saw one last time I poked around on the site. I think they've made some updates since then.

Have only seen (and tried) choices for between 1-3 pleats.

 

Interesting conversation, I am 6'4" 240 and have long / narrow arms for that size.  

 

My shirts also bind a little in the forearm when I get biceps right.  

 

I've stuck with 2 pleats for most shirts, would prefer 1 or none.

The narrower forearms also come into play when rolling up your sleeves. At least for me.

yup.....

 

 

it can be a bit of a chore to do a roll up for sure.

 

my feeling is that whatever formula PC  uses that gives the forearm measurement based on the upper arm and the cuff, is a wee bit too small...

but its  not tight around lower forearm /cuff area for me.....

 

and for this reason I prefer not a 3 pleat....I have more than enough room there.
