    For me, it was never an aesthetic thing. It could be five pleats for all I care lol. I'll definitely give PC a shot with it.

    Did you find that the third pleat noticeably changed the cuff opening? I've found them to be rather inconsistent with that.

    Does anyone have recommendations for a shirt fabric <$105 that is VERY breathable and fairly opaque?

    Also, I ordered the Hudson fabric for another shirt and am hoping that one is breathable

    Breathable meaning having a more open weave or something of the sort. I run very hot and live in warmer climate so I'm looking to make a shirt that helps keep me cooler. I'm keeping it at $105 or under.

    That is a nice fabric but runs $125/shirt

    For VERY breathable but also opaque you are talking dark colored linen, and PC has several within your target price.

    If you are wanting something white or pale blue and/or passable for office wear you will need to suffer with a linen/cotton blend (such as https://propercloth.com/fabrics/white-cotton-linen-oxford-1883.html), and then they are going to be a bit over your target price.
