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...

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

 

I went with the Roma Spread and it works well for what I wanted. FWIW, I never considered the wing collar. I don't seem to have any close ups of the collar while being worn (or at least none from the early part of a black tie event before things get out of hand), but here are a few other pics of the shirt.

Sweet. Thanks for the info/pics @brillopad. Do you prefer the ruffle shirt front (I'm totally brainfarting the proper term), as opposed to the marcella/pique front?

 

For some reason, I've always gravitated toward the pique front, but your version is subdued enough to make the ruffled (pleated?) front a definite option.

 

On a side, has anyone experienced the regular buttons (non-MOP) to be extremely flimsy? The big button on my Milano collar basically shredded down the middle, and I have no idea why. For reference, it made it 2 wears and 1 wash lol. 

 

Hopefully a freak occurrence and not the norm.

I like the pleat front, but I don't have a strong preference. I may try the bib in the future, we'll see. 

 

IME, the MOP buttons have been pretty solid. Some have chipped after many washes, but that's fairly expected. I've handled some pretty flimsy MOP buttons in the past on other makers and have found PC's much nicer compared so a couple other shirtmakers I've tried.

Yep, cut 'em off, every time.

Hey guys, new here and have my first proper cloth shirt. I'd appreciate any feedback on alterations I shoul make. The sleeves seem "twisted" and the space between the top two buttons isn't quite right. Any suggestions?

Can't decide on my next Beacon Flannel. Was about to do the Grey Tonal Plaid, but, it is now sold out.

 

Thinking the Grey or Pine Flannel, followed by the Navy Tonal. Going to order some more blue shirts (Catskill 100s Amber Multi Check, Chambray) so maybe the pine is a good call. But might also order the Sage + Violet check. Ugh, the struggle is real.

That can happen with resin due to random occurrences in the manufacturing process. Never had a problem with any of my shirts going on 5 years now.

Try raising the top button.

Thanks for the heads up. That's more along my lines of thinking, that it was simply a funky one off sorta thing. All others have held up quite well, even the gauntlet buttons (I think that's the term?), which are far more strained than they ought to be, due to my poor measurement skills lol.

Just received my first batch of shirts and the fabrics are great! Glad I took the time to get the fit right. Also, PC seems to have read my mind - the tags and extra buttons are now below the bottom button, removing any irritation they might cause.

Customer service is awesome too - one of my shirts is delayed and they gave me a $25 credit without me even asking!

Because of my uneven shoulders i have this issue with most of my shirts, wondering if there is anything PC could do or is bespoke the best solution?

Does anyone use the regular button down? If so, so you dig it?

I went with the President Semi Spread collars for my shirts, but notice that the collar points bend where they meet the shirt.  I assume there isn't any fix to this, but any chance stiffer versions will be offered with this collar?

I think the bend is a deliberate part of the design, because that's the region that should get tucked underneath jacket lapels. I actually like that detail.

I like this bend. One of my favorite parts of longer collars. I wouldnt want it to be stiff, but I guess that's just my taste.
