Is that a navy? oh my, beautiful looking choices.

 

Is the prototype shirt made up in the blue fabric seen here? I know it's just a phone pic so tough to tell. I ask because I love the look and color of the prototype fabric.

Both.

Last question: Do we cut them shorter to wear untucked?

 


This shirt looks amazing.

 

@spiermackay I have a question; will you swap out the buttons on your OTR shirts for the thick MOP? Or is that MTM only?

Right now it's MTM only. Let me talk to my tailor, I think the button hole is adjusted for the MOP as well as it's thicker. Also, we don't keep any MOP buttons here, they are all in the factory. We can always order them and send them to you.

New MTM shirt. Burgundy university stripe oxford with "Kamakura BD collar." Fabric is lighter than the current OCBD, but heavier than a pinpoint.

Do you prefer them with a button collar or Semi/Full Spread Collars?

Button down.

Would love to see line shirts with short 1.5 - 2" collars with or without buttons in a casual style. Linen is best suited for a casual shirt

And ah!! No pockets and soft collar for a casual linen shirt

When are the OTR expected? Please make them a tad shorter to wear untucked.

I can understand this look, however I feel as if many of us on SF enjoy the look that straddles between dressy and casual. This is where a decent length BD collar works. A spread collar is too formal, since it's mean to be worn with a tie. A button down collar is always somewhat casual to me, as they look good when unbuttoned and stand up straight, which is a must if you wear it with any kind of jacket. I think a linen shirt with a good BD collar could look nice under an unstructured casual summer sport coat.

@gbandi - what you want is already available from places like Club Monaco. I agree w/ Spex' post above, a normal S&M BD collar would allow me to wear this with a summer sportcoat or to work without a tie, the tiny collar is super casual and not really a professional look or one that's in favor on SF.

If we don't offer this OTR, you can easily get exactly what you are looking for through our custom program.

  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

This oxford is not the oxford from our current oxford program. This fabric was purchased from a local stockist and I believe the cloth is from the Italian Mill Brembana.

 

All new oxford moving forward will be the current cloth, which was our own development.

Speaking of oxfords, any word on the OTR university stripe OCBDs?
