I'd also like to see this comparison. I have a feeling the "extreme spread" is going to be too wide for most, though. The regular spread looks ideal in my opinion.

Is the Paypal checkout option unavailable? I don't see it when I check out.

Yes - on your first order, they make one first to make sure it fits, and then make the next 2.

Its been disabled. It was causing some issues. New site is couple of weeks away and should reintegrated. The noramal payment gateway is very secure and reliable as well.

Hey Rick, any recommendations on solids that are easier to iron than the regular poplins. I have 3 of the regular poplins (the $79 price point custom ones), but they are just short of impossible to iron.

Hi Rick,
Can you tell me what the lapel widths are on the slim fit suit, 36S and 38S?
Thanks!

Hey, why are you only asking Rick? :) I have two shirts in pinpoint oxford and they are vey easy to iron, but thicker than some poplin/broadcloth. It seems to be the tradeoff, that the finer the fabric, the harder it is to iron.

Rick mentioned a few pages back that they are all above 3.25", if this helps.

White poplin is always, always going to wrinkle if it's untreated. Finer counts more so. Our premium poplin wrinkles a bit less and looks pretty good throughout the day, but still will wrinkle at the elbows and waistline, where the shirt is tucked in.

 

When ironing, make sure the shirt is damp. This will help and make ironing much, much easier and the shirt will have a nice crispness to it.

 

Good white alternatives are pin oxford and fine twill. Both are more naturally wrinkle resistant and easier to iron.

I just ordered the light blue and white OCBDs.  I had a hard time deciding between the light blue and ocean blue.  Ocean is too blue and the light isn't blue enough.  I wish there was something in between.

I agree. Wish there were real life comparison pics. Ocean blue is too blue. I got the burgundy as well. Hope it turns out well.

Good feedback. Let's see what we can do for future cuts.

Any thoughts on getting some plaid fabric in besides the madras, particularly for RTW?

I could see Black Watch being really popular.
