Hey everyone,

I'm putting together our next delivery of shirts, which should come by early to mid-February.

One of our best selling shirts was a medium grey glen plaid (see it pictured below).
I'm thinking of remaking it for this next batch, but with a spread collar rather than a buttondown. I'm wondering two things:

1. Do you think that glen plaid is seasonal - and more appropriate for Fall?

2. How about doing it with french cuffs?

Thanks, I'd love to hear your feedback.

IMO, yes and yes. But I'm not a huge fan of spread collars. I think it looks classy as hell as a button-down, personally.

These shirts look really good, though they do seem to fit a little long for casual wear. Either way, I might have to snag one if I somehow reuninite with some $$$

Your shirts look great and are reasonably priced - I hope to head over to Brooklyn soon and try them on!

Would it be possible to get neck sizes as well?

Me too. Button-downs are my favorite, and we worked hard to craft a substantial collar with an elegant roll. But most guys seem to prefer the spread, so we're rolling with that for the next batch.

We'll bring back the button-down for some classic oxford and seersucker shirts a bit later in the season. We're also working on cutaway and hidden button-down collars.

Yes, I've been meaning to do that. I'll hook it up this week and update the sizes on my site. They run pretty standard for designer slim shirts.

Looking forward to the additional measurements. I would likely be in for some oxfords/seersuckers later this year...

Hey everyone, I just confirmed all the fabrics for our next batch of shirts. They're scheduled to arrive in about three weeks (mid-Feb). I've got some swatches to show. As before, they are all Pima cottons imported from either England or Italy.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

Okay, I took some neck measurments. These are measured with the collar button closed - from one end of the top button to the other. I believe that this is the correct method, but please let me know if it isn't.

Small: 15.5
Medium: 16
Large: 16.5
XL: 17

For the record, I've sold these shirts to guys with all different kinds of physiques, and the collar sizing has worked out in every case - provided that the body fit them.

Also - just as a heads up - the button down plaid shirts are down to their last few pieces, so you might want to grab one soon if you're interested in them.

have you guys started looking into the spring batch yet? I might be interested in a <15'' neck.
post #29 of 35
Just want to add... 35'' sleeves are pretty long IMO. Seems like you're assuming everyone skinny is also tall. I believe Hawes and Curtis offer online purchasers to get their sleeves cut to any size for like $10, just an idea. As far as I know most standard shirts have a 32/33 sleave, but when it's a 14.5 collar and slim fit, suddenly they all switch to 35''? how about a 32''? one last thing. Seeing as how you're advertising to this crowd, and are partly relying on online purchases, you might want to be more specific with all the measurements on the site. like neck size, shoulder widths, body tapers, lengths top to bottom. it may seem overboard but I go to the mall with a measuring tape when i buy my shirts... and if they're bought online, I always ask for the full set of measurements to lower my risk... just a suggestion. Fabrics look nice, I like the collection. Best of luck
