    The royal blue is a slightly different fabric from the others, a bit softer. Based on what you're saying perhaps it's slightly stretchier? Though I haven't noticed this with the shirts I have.

    Or did you wash one and not the other?

    Got the white poplin shirt with custom modifications this weekend and it fits great. Looking forward to wearing it to a wedding in a couple months.

    Thanks for replying. I noticed the difference before washing, so I guess it must due to the difference in the fabrics. It's not a huge problem, but it is noticeable. Which fabric will the new colors be using?

    I have got three dress shirts from Kent now and they are all very good.

    Would there be more styles in the future?

    Does anyone else find ironing the poplin shirting a bit difficult? It's wonderfully smooth, but a bitch to iron. Maybe the linen/cotton or royal oxford for my next order?

    Irons just fine for me. Just wrinkles like a motherf*****.

    Poplin is a plain weave so is more susceptible to wrinkling. Herringbone and twill weaves will be more wrinkle-resistant. Really I've never found a single shirt I've ever worn to be too wrinkly. Perhaps you need to just embrace the wrinkles.
    Which fabric will the new colors be using?
    A mix. All will be pique, except for the stripes which will be jersey. Polos are expected to be restocked in early June.
    Would there be more styles in the future?
    I'm currently working on significantly expanding the number of styles, but it might be two or three months.

    I definitely learned to love the wrinkles; I love the fabric and it's easily the highest quality shirt I own.

    No, I think it's more fair to have one low price for everyone.
