My coworker said my OTR BD shirt fits perfect.

Thanks Spier and Mackay smile.gif

On that note. Question for everyone here, are you fans of the box pleat? Visually speaking I am not

I am not either but I understand it comes with the "prep" look OCBD's are meant for!

No, I'm not, but that was how OCBD's were originally designed.

I love OCBDs as casual shirts, but I'll leave the box pleats and locker loops to the trad fetishists. :-)

Rick, adding onto the recent discussion, will there be box pleat-less OCBD's in the future, or is this forever a custom option?

Box pleats are bad but shoulder pleats don't look that bad?
post #2799 of 6186

Do you mean side pleats (like one on each side, joining the yoke) or shoulder "ripples", like in spalla camicia?

I believe side pleats.

If so, I quite like them. I have a bigger upper back then chest. Side pleats give me a little bit more movement range when reaching forward with my arms (tying my shoes, etc).

Quick question to people who have purchase OTR OCBD's from S&M. 

 

Are yours wearable with a jacket? The one I received looks fine by itself (truth be told, I find the collar points a tad short on my big frame), but doesn't appears to be wearable with a jacket / sport coat. It's hard to explain it, but it's like the back of the shirt collar stands high on the neck but the collar itself (not the band) isn't tall enough, so it has a tendency to ride over the jacket lapels, instead of sitting properly under. Which I find is a deal breaker for me. I don't know if it's because of the collar dimensions, it's understructures-nessthe jacket which I paired it with or a combination of these factors.

 

On another note, has anyone else's OCBD been slimmer than other S&M shirts, or did I simply received a QC mistake? The OCBD I received fits noticeably slimmer in the abdomen region when compared to other shirts from S&M in the same size.

I have never tried with a sports jacket to be honest. But I can give it a go tonight.

All my BD shirts fit the same. I have a small issue with the left shoulder kinda sticking up but it could be my ironing? Kinda like how your hair sticks up when you wake up in the AM.

No plan just yet, but if enough customers start to ask for it, we will consider it.

Can you PM me a pic of you wearing the shirt with a Jacket so I can see what's going on? the points are 3 1/2", which is on the longer side, most OCBD's are in the 3" - 3 3/8" range. I just dealt with a similar issue you are describing and it may be how the collar was pressed before packing.

FWIW, I was in NYC yesterday and  stopped by Kamakura and had a close look at their OCBD shirts. The collars on them are fused. It's the fused structure that gives the rigid roll of the collar. Our OCBD's don't have fusing in them, which is more traditional and softer.

 

What is the preference?
