    sartorialexecutive,

    Are all your button cuffs with three buttons? Two-button cuff fan here.

    Regarding criticism of the name ...
    i don't see your point.
    Fritzl, I'm with you on this.

    While I tend to prefer surnames ... the name Sartorial Executive would not hold me at bay if the product is quality.

    then you should try the "Wiener" cuff. you can also have the second button hole built in your single cuff shirts...

    What's a Viennese/sport cuff?

    Some available cuff styles are here, but I believe you pretty much can get what you want. Here are mine:

    Do you have to pay extra for the stripes not matching in the front of the shirt/.

    for example this it's mandatory for white tie. for casual shirts in germany it's called sport- or combination cuff. it's a single cuff with two buttonholes, so you can button it or use silk-knots and cufflinks. i like the fact, i can choose. i also know of people, who build the french cuffs of their favourite shirts back instead of having them repaired...

    Actually, the recipient of this shirt did not pay a penny (or cent if you prefer).

    (It was actually a prize in a competition run by http://www.thehuntingground.net/)

    Sweet! I only managed to get one in my size.

    Post your impression after they're washed and worn.

    They're exactly what I wanted. Exactly what they look like. Big-ish traditional fit but still look good on me (even though I'm pretty slim). Perfect collar roll which, for whatever reason, no button down I've bought or commissioned bespoke has ever even approached. O'C has a few more in my neck size but sleeve length is off. They offered to shorten sleeves for $20/shirt but I opted not to bite. I will wash and wear over the next few days or so.

    Are those collars interfaced? They look like they might be to me.

    Completely unlined as far as I can tell. The OCBDs were definitely unlined but they didn't have any in my size.

    To be sure, these have (at least for me) the holy grail button down collar

    Would you mind posting shoulder and p2p measurements for your size 15?

    Sure..will probably take me 24 hrs until I'm with a measuring tape and the shirts will be unwashed but I will do so happily. My shirts are 15.5 though, not 15. As far as I can tell (and I have lots of BB shirts in both slim and traditional fit dating from 1980s to 2010), the fit P2P is identical to the current traditional fit shirts. But I will still post measurements.

    I see, thanks for the info. I was going to guesstimate the measurements for a 14.5 based on yours, but I'll just pass on these since you mention they fit like their current Traditional fit. Fwiw, I'll try their Extra Slim since I find their Slim is (still) a bit roomy. Enjoy the shirt, collar looks good!
