@Kwv07 soft cuff, soft placket!
@ccallis and, do you think there will be a stiff, unfused Roma Spread in the future? I think that would be a great addition.
@ccallis Ahhhh, alright. Thanks, Chris. When that is added, I'll be able to order shirts exclusively from Proper Cloth. I like my collars unfused, but the Roma Cutaway is a bit extreme for me as a go-to (although I like it on special occasion).
I'm with you, there. Having gotten so many of your perfectly serviceable plastic stays I don't think I'll run out any time soon, but it would be a nice option to have plastic instead. Also, I'll repeat my suggestion of an option to forego all the packaging material. I love the way the shirts are packaged--it really presents the shirt well. But, all that stuff goes straight into the trash as soon as I unpack the shirt. I'm a committed customer, I don't need to be wooed by the packaging any more. Just a folded shirt in a box is plenty for me.
I gotta try the stiff collar. I found the Roma Spread just a tad too big for my taste, but the President spread seems just right and I've accumulated a bunch of them now. I think the next time you guys get a nice Bengal Stripe (not wrinkle-free), especially in a nice shade of red, I'll try a stiff collar.
Try the stiff collars for lesser chance of collapse as advertised by PC (have yet to tried it myself). But yeah, otherwise, I tried the half inch up option for casual shirts and it's great because with regular spacing, the top two buttons open up the shirt too much, throwing the balance. Now I'm trying 1 inch up for dress shirts, because I want those to close even higher (and it's still quite open). The lower option to me is just weird, honestly.
@ccallis I notice the oxford cloth options have dropped off significantly. I was planning on grabbing several as soon as the temperature dropped. Do you guys have any plans to drop a whole bunch more patterns and colors in the near future? It seems surprising that PC would be so shorthanded on something that's considered a closet staple. I mean, unless you want thomas mason you can't even buy a blue and white stripe!
If you haven't selected a fabric yet, may I recommend a mid-heavy instead of a heavy like the last seasons? That thing was so heavy I didn't even want to wear a sweater in the lower 40 degree temps, haha.
Interesting. I have found the heavy Oxford cloth to be close to perfect and in no way too heavy. It makes up into really comfortable shirts.
To be fair, I also run warm, and live in the deep south. Most of the winter an OCBD is perfectly warm enough for me, with only a couple months necessitating sweaters. I do love a good comfy shetland, though.
