    Really? They seem pretty standard to me. There are also three fits (extra slim, slim, classic) so it seems like there's a good amount of variety. But I haven't handled in person yet so I'm just going off measurements.

    FWIW 33 jacket sizes x 3 lengths x 3 "fits" = 297 permutations for jacket sizes

    Question for y'all: are soft collars on a linen/linen blend noticeably different in terms of softness than typical cotton fabrics? Or better question, does anybody have experience with a "normal" collar on a linen shirt? Soft collars on linens are probably a bit too soft for my taste, but I'd definitely prefer a linen shirt to "feel" slightly softer around the collar than my cotton shirts.

    I haven’t but I’m tempted. Because my favourite sweater, favourite pocket square, and favourite are all from PC. They haven’t disappointed me yet.

    @saskatoonjay I have this available. Brand new, never used if interested.

    Damn, @edubs01 — it’s just what I was looking for. I found one on Gentleman’s Gazette and ordered it already, though. Thanks for the offer, man.

    I bought my first PC shirt in a Reda Merino Wool. I based the measurements on both measurements of me and the measurements of a reference shirt that is a bit too snug. I used their algorithm from my body measurements to make a shirt, and then I adjusted based on how the snug shirt fits me. Well, I got the shirt, and it just seems too big in some of the areas. For example, the chest size of the snug shirt is 24.25. The chest size of the PC shirt is supposed to be 24.50, but it feels MUCH larger. The mid section and bottom width are similarly much larger on the PC shirt. The shirt has been laundered twice now, so I am thinking perhaps the shrinking allowance was wrong. PC mentions that cotton shrinks, but will the merino wool also shrink? Could it be that they made it large and then the shirt didn't shrink?

    Mistakes do happen, and they’re wiling to make it right. Email them pictures and tell them what happened.

    Does PC send delivery confirmation when items are sent out? My order was estimated to be delivered tomorrow at latest but according to the status on the website is still being cut and sewn...

    For US delivery, I've always gotten an initial shipping notification email and a text from DHL the day before or day of. In my experience, their 2 week estimate has been accurate to the day or even earlier.

    I have a question, which maybe some of you can help me with: how variable are the patterns? Do I have the ability to have them add more ease in the chest compared to the back (since P2P measurements won't show that)?

    Just received my first PC shirt today - basic white dress shirt in Lafayette twill. It arrived one day later than the estimated delivery date, tisk tisk.

    Very pleased with the fit, considering it was a trial run. Only thing that needs correcting is cuffs which are too loose. I’ll probably just have my tailor at the mall fix them. Sleeves are a touch full but I’ll probably just tweek that for my next order.
