    Looks to be a broadcloth, which might be the Allen 120s that I also have. If so, agreed that it's not the most comfortable fabric; stains more easily than other fabrics too.

    Does anyone have experience with their trousers? I was debating giving the Allen Grey S110s Wool Trousers a chance.

    They look okay, but they're so expensive!

    Does anyone with an English Spread collar have issues with their tie slipping down? I tie a simple four in hand, and my tie is constantly slipping down throughout the day, and it's frustrating. It seems like there's not a lot of space for a knot on the collar so the knot has nowhere to go other than down.

    This is never a problem with spread collars from different brands (including CT).

    Hey @Seph , noticed that all three blue shades of the 140s Wrinkle Resistant Bengal Stripes are not in stock and also don't show up in the "may be available again in the future" list at the bottom. Any plans to bring back dressy broadcloth Bengal stripes? Via another collection/range perhaps?

    Feedback please. I just had 4 shirts made. Am concerned the sleeves are too long/full. This is after one wash and air dry. Sorry for the wrinkles.

    might just be the pictures. i like my shirts slim and i think the body is mostly OK but worried about the sleeves.

    edit: has anyone ever had a batch of 4 shirts totally remade? does propercloth comp it? this isn't my first time using them but have never had to return anything. thanks.

    Sleeves look OK to me! I’ve been regretting some slimmer sleeves recently.

    The sleeves don’t look bad at all to me. Do you ever roll them up? If my sleeves are on the slim side there’s not enough room to roll them up. That’s my reason for keeping my sleeves a bit looser. Yours look just fine.

    Thank you both. Any other feedback regarding the fit of either shirt? Acceptable overall? I am hoping I’ll exeprience more shrinkage the next few washes. Thanks again.

    Well, I'm no expert by any means, but I think they look fine and I'd be happy with them.

    Since my first PC order, I gradually went slimmer, found the slimmer shirts less comfortable, and went looser again. Wear them a bunch of times and see how they feel, that’s the most important!
