When does Proper Cloth usually finish rolling out their spring and summer styles? I'm interested in seeing if they'll restock their selvedge chambray fabric.

Which line of Baird McNutt does PC use? It looks too delave to be Glenarm. Any chance of getting some more of their fabrics in the catalog this season? I'm looking for an ivory, oatmeal, or ecru... something a bit lighter than natural.

So after a few shirt purchases I have learned about "Placket collar flop" and will be choosing the reinforced placket option on my next two shirts being made now. Will have to have my tailor install placket stays in the PC shirts I already have. Live and Learn.

I'm interested to hear your results. I gave up on PC a few years back after my first couple of rounds of shirts suffered from collar collapse. I posted detailed questions about it here at least twice looking for how to resolve/fix and never got a real solution.

Here's hoping you can confirm that they've done something that really works. I'm not up for another round of experimenting until I hear/see that from someone having a similar experience.

Thanks - So I assume the reinforced placket option was not available back then. I will get two shirts with this option to see and report back. In the mean time I am having the "Million dollar collar" placket stays installed by my tailor in one of my shirts to see.

Oh - where did you go for MTM shirts after giving up on PC ?

Very nice shirts! Would you mind sharing the collar type of the first shirt and the cloth material of the second one? I can't seem to find that blue wide with thin white stripes anywhere.

Have a nice one, Nacho
Cloth is probably this one, which is out of stock at the moment

Thank you! I’ll wait for them to restock :)

How is the ocbd cloth compared to the American Pima cotton, is it worth it to pay the difference?

i’ve read that the standard ocbd cloth is a bit hard and very prone to wrinkles. I don’t mind this if it softens up a bit after several wears.

Thanks in advance,

Nacho

Correct, it wasn't. There was some talk of some other options (I don't recall the names) that people speculated would help but I never got a clear answer.

Nowhere specifically, I've been lucky enough with altering off-the-rack RTW to keep my stable going.

I had no idea that existed, interesting! Very interested to hear your results with that.
