I would launder it and wait to see how much shrinkage you get. Shrinkage depends quite a bit on how each person cares for their shirt. Looks like that's a charcoal heavy oxford? If so, I'd wait to change size until you've washed it 2 times. Those shrink quite a bit in comparison to most of the styles we carry.

For those with arm tightness issues--we're currently in the process of prototyping a 3 pleat forearm. It won't help if you find the armpit too tight. But you feel like you could go slimmer in the bicep, but worry about the forearm becoming too snug, then give it a try in a month or two when it's ready.

Thanks Chris, I placed a new order yesterday. The heavy charcoal came in .5 slimmer than the other shirts ordered with it. I washed a bunch of times already and seeing about .5 difference in shirt lengths so worried that future orders may end up too short. I'd rather err- on the longer side then tailor if needed. We will be trying the larger chest/neck change to help with the top button and 2pleat forarm. Thanks for the help!

Just got my second shirt today and I still can't figure out how these guys make a profit after shipping costs. FedEx international express from Asia? The shipping costs must be brutal.

Hey Chris, 

 

Any new collars in the work for 2016? Or, any options to modify current collars? 

 

Thanks so much!

What is wrong with the website? Pages take forever to load, or won't load, layout is terrible. Please go back to the old site.

We're making a number of smaller tweaks to many different collars, currently. Really excited about how they'll improve performance (ie how collars stand up, comfort, back collar height, collar roll). We're taking our time with these, so I wouldn't expect any shape updates go live in the next month.

We actually just updated the unfused interlining on our Soft Franklin, Soft President, and Soft Roma collars to use a slightly more full bodied brushed non-fusible interlining from Germany. Again...subtle difference but a good one!

No new collars planned at the moment, but we'll do some more thinking on that once the smaller tweaks I mentioned are complete.

Sorry to hear! Not sure what you're seeing, as I don't think there are any major updates recently--best to send an email to customer service if you're having any real issues or want to make suggestions.

Will any of those smaller tweaks change some of the measurements? Would love to see the president spread increased to 3.25" collar points, etc? It would be great to have something right in between the Roma size and the <3" length.

Yes--some of these tweaks will change measurements while others will just change curves. Think you'll be happy with them. Can't guarantee quite yet, but I bet Pres Spread points will become a tad longer and Roma will become slightly smaller.

Awesome! Great news. 

 

Any idea of the timing on this?

smaller? : ( hopefully not too much smaller

 

Also - will it help the collars stand up better when wearing a jacket? (so it doesnt collapse towards the middle)?

Would also love to see the front collar band height reduced just a tad. Just a personal opinion.

Nope. I will not predict timing, will update SF when any changes go live!

It will be a very small change to dimensions, while SF guys may notice I think most will not. And yes, biggest area of improvement across all collars will be how each collar stands up.

Please don't change the Milano dimensions in any way.
