    I have a work shirt from 5 years ago and it isn't as high as the current version. I just wear a t underneath it.

    I'm 6' tall and despite having a long torso, I try to wear 19 C BDs tucked when in the office, but find myself constantly re-tucking! I wear size small because of my thin frame (medium is just too wide and boxy), and the overall length of the shirt just a touch too short for me.

    Even with high rise pants worn around my waist (I run the risk of pants sitting too high and showing too much sock), I struggle to remain looking "neat" as the shirt inevitably slips undone around the sides. The high position of the lowest button doesn't help much either. I find the only solution is to wear a vest to hide it all away...

    The high gussets and a-line design of the shirt definitely lends itself to wearing/fitting better un-tucked which is my preference out of office.

    El-Q, you might try a pair of shirt stays (ubiquitous in the military) to keep your shirt neat all day! a local army/navy might have them or i'm sure you can find them online!

    Or just buy a different shirt? I imagine EG meets business casual as a bad thing, but maybe that's just me.

    @El QUaG if you have a good tailor they should be able to close the side seams a bit and move the gussets down. I had this done a few times, but they have to know what they're doing.

    I love 19cbds as much as the next guy/girl on this board, but when we're talking modifying a $200+ shirt (assuming full retail) so it can be worn tucked at the office (when the real beauty is seeing it not tucked) seems a bit much...to each his own, though, for sure! [​IMG]

    This chick always seems to do EG really well:

    As for the 19th Century BDs as business casual shirts, I agree that they can be tricky. While there aren't as many interesting fabrics as EG and the selection is very limited, Orslow has been a great alternative to EG for me for BDs. They incorporate pretty easily into my work wardrobe and work well with my EG stuff for more casual wear.

    Is there that much of a diff in sizing between fw14 & 15 Highlands? I know I've read that it was slimmed some, but like ... how much?

    I own the FW14 highland and tried on the FW15 version yesterday. I took the same size both versions -- size one down from regular size.
