So that's the Soft Ivy collar. That one did make up somewhat differently than past orders and I agree it seems to sit low. This was the linen/rayon blend fabric, which sold out quickly. Since I intend to mostly wear this casually, I'm not going to worry about it and there's no way to remake it if I did care since the fabric is gone. But I did find it inconsistent with prior orders; here is the same collar on a blue OCBD from 2014 for instance:


I do also have a long neck, which is a fact that's been pretty well-known on this forum for over a decade at this point. Though I honestly wonder how many no-neck people can wear collars and ties comfortably. Like how do you guys turn your heads? :foo:

Has anyone tried PC's cashmere sweaters? Their v-necks and turtlenecks are starting to pique my interest.

Yes, I have a grey v-neck that I bought 2 1/2 years ago, and I still love it. It keeps its shape, doesn’t pill much at all, and is deliciously soft. Competitively priced, too.

Edit: It was $150 in 2017. What’s with the 25% hike, @Seph?

I have the cream linen/rayon shirt – indeed totally different from my other orders. It looks good but it barely shrank (or PC completely miscalculated the shrinkage allowance). It also sags in a weird way – the cuffs seem much heavier than any oxford cuff I have. Also takes much longer to dry than even heavy cotton, weirdly enough. Anyway, I don’t mind having it as a casual shirt but the collar is still too big to wear with a tie, even after several hot dryer runs.

@Seph, have you considered creating an online swap board for your customers? It would be a way for us to find homes for PC shirts that aren't working for us ... maybe we didn't get the size dialed in right, or didn't end up liking the color, or whatever. Any shirt we post could generate an alert for all board members that have similar measurements (all would be opt-in, private, etc... you wouldn't have to use your real name if you didn't want to). You could call it [email protected]

I suspect if you don't do this, someone will create it independently ...

@Seph, are you guys planning to offer black mother-of-pearl buttons? Some of the nicest shirts I've owned have these; they're amazing looking on any dark fabric. Strongly suggested.

It's a cool idea. I'd like to do something here, but with current priorities I don't see us getting to that in the near future.

Fit suggestions needed!

Over the last couple of years I have adjusted my fit and overall very happy with my purchases. However, I still am getting lines around the armpits despite moving to “sloping shoulders”. Should I adjust to ”very sloping shoulders” on my next order? Any other suggestions? @Seph

Thanks!
