    Blue chambray is an amazing shirt, fabric is incredible. Highly recommended, and with the current deal is a fantastic value! Great stuff as always. Now about the red chambray...

    Dumb question alert: are work shirts and dress shirts based upon the same sizing? Essentially, is a YH2 (or 3, etc) in dress shirt sizing the same as its work shirt equivalent?

    Never a dumb question (teacher voice). I size up for the work shirts. I wear a size YH1 in dress shirts but a YH 2 in work shirt. We're working on tweaking the pattern a bit, but right now everything I'd say as a rule, should be sized up 1 unless you want to wear it only over a tee.

    Today, working on something for the streetwear crew...I'm not totally satisfied with this YET, but it's close.

    This FIT is based on a 1960s Woolrich Flannel my dad passed down to me that I live in once the weather hits the 40's and 50's consistantly...

    Here's something else we're working on based on customer feedback...a more traditional fit. We'll still offer our original fit, but know that if you did size up, and you'd prefer the newer traditional fit, we're happy to accommodate that. Once the patterns are finalized, I'll be posting measurements in the thread but here's a side by side comparison of a size YH1 in the traditional fit, beneath the original fit also in a YH1.

    [​IMG]

    Here's some feedback from G Bruce Boyer, author of True Style, former contributor at The Rake Magazine and style guru who tested one of our Napoli Spread Collars in our new traditional fit pattern:

    Hi Rob,

    I received the Napoli shirt yesterday, went over it carefully, tried it on, the full examination.

    YES, INDEED, NOW YOU'VE GOT IT. The body, cuffs, sleeves (the armhole is high enough) and length of this Classic Fit model are what they should be: trim enough I think, and roomy enough too. My friend Mariano Rubinacci always says that a garment should look slim from the outside and feel roomy from the inside. I think you'll find this model is better suited to more men.

    And, as an added bit of cream in the custard, I like the collar very much. The amount of softness is perfect, the slightly larger spread is nicely fashionable and contemporary. Along with the mitered cuffs, and you've got the gauntlet button too.

    I think you've got a winner here. Let's talk when I see you on the 5th at Gary's Loft.

    Best to you and Courtney as ever,
    Bruce

    Check out this classic, old school collar roll. Love it! Glad I ordered two of them.

    If you haven't tried a YH shirt yet, better move quick with the special sale pricing.

    @notdos it's a real winner. One that is far less "costumey" than I would have initially thought. It's about the right time of year to break mine back out [​IMG]
