post #991 of 1711

Would love to see a linen like this

For the regular Roma (or all regular collars for that matter), is the fusing the same stiffness as their fused cuffs and plackets? Would that be a good comparison?

For any of you who have bought the Canclini flannels, do they pill after multiple washings?

IMO yes ... it's similar to all their regular collars if you have experience with those. I'm a huge fan of this collar, soft roma, and stiff roma

I'm a couple days late to the game, but I'm a little nervous about the PC collar updates. I'm close to placing a bulk order for shirts, and part of me wants to wait to see if the soft ivy gets a bigger collar roll, but part of me reallllly doesn't want the Roma spread to get any smaller. Not sure if I should wait for the collar updates or pounce while my beautiful Roma spread is untarnished....

I say pounce if you're happy with what you have! If you see something you like in the future, do a single shirt order (on maybe even a cheaper fabric)

The soft ivy needs to be way bigger. I don't feel like it bulges out well enough to consider it "ivy",

Soft ivy is fine.

I wish it has a slightly larger roll (Kamakura-ish would be nice), but the current roll is more than adequate and improves as the shirt breaks in a little. My fingers are crossed for a bigger roll, but it's good enough that I'm leaning towards ordering some more ivy collars in the near future.

(Unless a PC rep would like to step in and tell us in a little more detail what's upcoming with the collar changes...)

Is anybody having issues with recent shirts being off spec - I've particularly noticed this in the midsection that even after a couple of washes they are +/- .75-1" bigger (which for me is quite significant).

I just got a new shirt two days ago and it bulges out from the back like my previous ones didn't. That being said I chose the darts of option for the first time, but that's supposed to reduce that exact problem not increase it (i.e. my previous shirts had a small bulge at the back but any small and it would have been pulling at the belly). It still needs washing so hopefully it shrinks more than expected.

 

So I guess perhaps I've encountered the same thing as you, but perhaps not.

That is strange because the darts do help me with that - I just measured a couple of the shirts straight across the midsection and they were big (after washing a couple of times).

Good idea, I'll break out the measuring tape after it's washed.

Have you tried the other BD collars they offer? The standard button down and Colorado both have less roll, but I've never ordered them for that very reason.

It's also worth noting I'm a bigger guy, so I find the bigger the roll, the better it looks on me.
