I'm no expert on these things but I thought a button down collar just didn't jive with the seersucker.
To me it makes more sense, since seersucker is casual. Spread collar seems odd to me for a casual shirt.

Yes, it is casual for sure. But I do have many casual shirts sans button down. But they might not be spread collars? Just a regular collar.

 

I guess I am just growing tired of button downs.  They look stuffy to me.....I have a bunch of casual button downs too and I'm undoing the buttons for that free and easy "sprezz" look!

 

Maybe I should do the same with the seersucker? I wonder if Mauro can make a button down collar without the buttons or button holes.

I personally prefer button downs for casual shirts. I feel like I dont have enough of them. I usually opt for it when I can.

I emailed Mauro to discuss.

 

I have a bunch of work shirts and engineer shirts and they don't have button down collars. Just a plain old collar. That was what I was shooting for....But they might not be as spread as a spread collar.

 

They actually look like a button down collar without the buttons/button holes.

I like the button down collar Mauro does because its on the larger side, I find I dont care much for small collars. I have an oxford from Mauro with, I think is a spread collar. I believe its the sea blue overdye from last year.

Sorely tempted to go for the navy Hawaiian seersucker with short sleeves. I'll have to mull over it and hope they don't sell out in the meantime.

Can someone please help me with the sizing? I don't have access to a tailor to properly measure myself, and I don't trust my wife to do a good job. If I normally bought a medium after dinner, what number does that translate to in the Italian sizing? Any help is appreciated.

I don't have the shirts with me right now but from what I remember, 41 fits a little slimmer than a medium AD while the 42 fits a little larger. You could probably wear either depending on what kind of fit you prefer.

 

There should be size charts with measurements for both cuts on the website.

I would go with a 41 as well. It fits fairly similarly. I have a flannel in 41 AD and I find it to be a tad bigger in the chest but pretty much the same otherwise.

Yeah that sounds about right. Did you notice any other differences? I vaguely remember the forearms and wrists being a bit tighter but it's been a while since I've worn them.

I remember someone asked some time ago about removing darts from a BD shirt and I decided to do it today to my elephant shirt. It was a little tight in the waist since I moved next to a bakery last year the fresh baked cookies have been hard on my waistline. There are some obvious lines up close where the darts were, but they'll probably disappear after a couple washes. There is a bit of a crease where the dart meets the bottom hem but it is pretty hard to notice unless you are paying attention. On the plus side it does fit a bit better around my waist now. I just used a pocket knife to do it. 

 

 

@janoy89 I didnt really find it to be any different other than that. Honestly every shirt I have from WvG fits a bit differently, not enough to mess around with sizing but just a bit. The only thing I really noticed was that it had a slightly larger chest.

RE: the Avocetta fabric - If I'm remembering right, Mauro told me the fabric was only available to him dyed black, so I don't think he had a choice in the color. I like the fabric so much I went for it even though black wouldn't have been my first choice. I figure it will be perfect for summer evenings. I went for that and the green roll neck. We also have the U-neck, of course. The poll didn't really get us clear answers, haha. Mauro would like us to figure out what we want, but I'm not really sure what the most efficient way for us to come to a consensus is. Any ideas?

 

I spoke with Mauro for a bit today, and it sounds like the sweatshirts and shirts from that order are both done and either shipped or going be shipped any day now (from Italy to him). Summer trousers are scheduled to be fab'd a few weeks from now, so they'll likely make it stateside in about a month. He's had to move the sweatpants project to a new factory, so that has caused a bit of a delay in production. The chinos are a bit delayed too, but he's in the process of working it out.

 

Mauro has some pretty nice sounding oxford fabrics coming in the next few weeks. He keeps coming at my wallet!

Button down collar size sans actual buttons would be ideal for these shirts

Why not ask Mauro if he can do that? It seems like it would be a pretty minor modification. You might also like something like the button loop that Individualized does and could ask him about that as well. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0184/4436/products/Collar_Montage_grande_b9397b6d-6f5b-407d-becb-b3d5f247d4c7_1024x1024.jpg?v=1461940808

What makes that 1 t shirt cost 105 dollars? The bamboo soronas did not cost that much at all. I just can't believe how high the shirts cost. It was very unexpected so I'm a bit upset.
