I would go with the true collar size, since I haven’t noticed any real shrinkage. The 31 inch custom sleeve might be a good call. If you’re talking shrinkage after owning the shirts for years, maybe they’ll eventually snug down.I wear a 31 sleeve with 15.5 collar size. Should I purchase the 31 sleeve ( $15 customization) with 15.5 collar, or would you guys recommend going with a 16 collar and 32 sleeve and wash at least once in hot water to shrink the shirt? I intend to dry clean. ( not buying wrinkle free shirts).
Yes I went the custom shirt route a few years back, and while I also appreciated the better fit, spending $100+ on white dress shirts didn't make a whole lot of sense for me. They are essentially consumables and need to be replaced every few years.For the money, I've found CT shirts to be about the best bargain out there. I don't order from them very much anymore because I've basically moved on to custom from My Tailor. For me the customized fit improvement is worth the extra money. But for $30-50, I think you would be hard pressed to find a better business shirt than CT. I got married in a CT shirt.
