It's a good one.

For those that wish to provide feedback, here are some pictures of the shirt from my first order.

 

The areas that are always problematic for me are the chest, shoulders, yoke, and waist. Generally, if one area fits, then the others do not. I tried to account for these areas in the order, but seem to have still missed the mark. The chest is tight, the shoulders are pulling across the upper chest, the yoke perhaps a bit too wide, and the waist could use some trimming.
 
My preferred fit would definitely err on the side of tailored/trim without areas that bind. However, as you can see in the pictures, some adjustments are required in order to meet that objective.
 
Shirt details: Hudson Blue Wrinkle-Resistant Twill PCF1185, President Spread Collar, One Button Barrel Cuff, tailored shoulder/armpit.In these images the shirt has been washed and hung dry three times.
 
Thoughts?

Any word on when those Charcoal Cortina Vests will be back in stock?  I was wavering back and forth about whether or not I wanted it and it sold out (so of course now I want it).

No way to tell unless collar is buttoned. Otherwise things will look loose that aren't really/things will be pulling in strange areas.

For what it's worth, I neither wear ties, nor wear my shirts with the collar buttoned. Does that change anything?

 

@ccallis Can your offer any guidance on the fit?

Ok, here are a couple more pictures as requested. Does that help?

Could anyone provide insight as to the ideal collar for a tuxedo shirt?

 

As I love the collar, the Milano II would be my preferred choice, if at all feasible, followed likely by either the Roma Cutaway and Spread...

Fox a tux, shouldn't you be doing the winged?

So main problem seems to be the shoulder/upper arm bunching?

Idk what can be done about sleeves, they will always have some bunching due to the sloping. Chest and back actually look really clean.

You could add darts to remove excess lower back fabric.maybeshorten sleeves a tad?

I think so? I thought that may just be a hard and fixed rule for white tie, though I could certainly be mistaken there.

 

Either way, I think I'd much rather eschew proper rules and go with a turn down collar, rather than the wing...something about it (perhaps it's the stupid, stumpy weightlifting neck lol) just does not appeal to me.

Dunno, but I grabbed one (brown) and I'm pretty happy with it. Not over-designed, cut is decent and I don't mind poly fill for a sub $300 vest.

These Beacon Flannels are some of my all time favorite fabrics. So soft! I have Navy and Sage, think I'm going to get an additional two....

 

Everyone seems to like the Light Blue Chambray as well? I was thinking Slate Blue, but, might have to look into the light blue...

No. Shirts with an attached wing collar never look right. Wing collars are starched so as to be almost rigid, which, amongst other things, allows the collar to not collapse under the tie. An attached collar shirt couldn't be starched like that (I think it would be unwearable).

 

Go with a modest spread collar. I recommend the President Spread.
