    We're not neighbors (but we are 'Muricans!!), but PC has always shipped FedEx to me in SoCal, regardless of cost. Agree as well. FedEx is far and away my preferred method of shipment.

    That's right. Soft Ivy has a lightweight unfused interlining.

    you guys must've looked at the same mid-century collars as Ciongoli, btw. Collar shape, size and spread are identical to Eidos' Aldo collar, which he said he copied from his dad's mid-50s Brooks.
    His is totally unlined, though.

    So...any chance that the straight hem will ever be an option to go along with the camp collar?

    The shirts i have from multiple italian makers all have a much wider placket, 1.75 inches, which i think helps the collar stsy up when open.
    • In addition, i would love to see a collar with the following dimensions:
      3.75 inch collar points
      6.75 inch spread
      1.5 inch collar band height, front
      1.625 inch rear collar band height
      Zero tie space
      One button
      Thick/stiff fused interlining
      The zero tie space is very consistent with the bespoke shirts i have from multiple southern italian makers
      Also, you collar stay holder opening should be wider to accomodate wide soft plastic stays most of the italian makers use, only needs to be .25 inches wider.
      I'd call this collar the napoli

    Can I get some feedback please? My first shirt was way too slim, had it remade and this is it. They miscut the collar so I'm going to have to have it remade again. Any other thoughts on the fit? Take in the shoulders a smidge? I feel like the sleeves are a bit full but not sure if that's something they can change. Any other suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

    I’d consider reducing the sleeve width and maybe mid width and bottom width

    Gonna put in my vote for a tweaked Milano collar too, though was wondering if you would consider a less stiff fused interlining (not just for the Milano, but across the board)? I have this on another shirt from elsewhere, and the balance between neatness and flexibility is really quite nice. The regular stiff fusing just feels a little too hard.

    As for fabrics, I'm hoping there would be stronger offerings for classic patterns in other colours like green and brown, specifically those darker shades of forest/olive green and chocolate -- think Bengal stripe broadcloths, linens etc. These are fabrics your competitors are carrying and which I suspect PC customers would react well to.
