    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!

    They don't look it to me...

    Can anyone recommend some nice fabrics for OCBD?
    I have one made in S.I.C. Tess 120's Oxford which I like. But would like to try something else for experience.

    Are these the Brooks Brothers "create your shirt" shirts? Very nice.

    I think NOS means new old stock which suggests they are not. [​IMG]

    Now take them out of the packaging JohnnyCrockett! They yearn to be free.

    Looking good. I managed to snag 1 blue and 1 white NOS BB OCBD from the O'Connells sale a couple days back. Can't wait for them to arrive.

    I am looking forward to receiving a blue pinpoint in the next few days.
