Are you saying you didn't notice any shrinkage after the first wash?
I cool iron after each wash and it’s not shrunk more than expected or at all after 3 washes

Interesting - haven't seen this before. I agree that a Neck Back adjustment seems like it would help with this, but it does seem like a somewhat unique situation.
I think I've mostly solved it. At a previous fitting appointment, I was told to move the collar forward from 1/2" to 1". This was a mistake. The collar should have been left where it was, and the shoulder slope should have increased a notch. The shirts I ordered with this new adjustment are mostly free of these lines. It's a shame, I'm hoping to find a way to deal with them on this amazing Canclini herringbone.

The new Japanese blanket fabrics look amazing, super thick and textured. But, although I’m not a purist, I’d be hesitant to wear a shirt that’s 45% synthetic.

Has anyone tried their turtlenecks? Curious about their cashmere quality.

Do you think that soft wide is more suited for soft Ivy? I am considering stand up front placket but I may be wrong.
sorry, i missed this before. others said so already, but 10000% yes and in fact i had stopped ordering PC shirts with plackets until the wide soft was introduced.
i think the narrow / "standard" placket shouldn't exist, personally, ever, anywhere, at any brand. if it's got a placket, the "wide" one is how wide it should be.
not to be too extreme or anything

the wide placket is out of proportion on thinner guys
