    Carmine Light Blue Stripe in Stiff Roma Cutaway came in. I think I like this more than the Soft Roma Cutaway.

    Hey Guys--
    Just wanted to update everyone about the new Sea Island Cotton fabrics we released today. While a small collection of 4 styles, these fabrics are truly amazing. All the cotton is grown and picked by hand in Barbados, fully certified and approved by WISICA, and then woven by David & John Anderson (Albini Group's highest end line) in Bergamo, Italy. This is the stuff the whole Albini team has been incredibly excited about all summer and tout as the absolute best of the best.

    Sea Island cotton is the rarest cotton in the world and is well known for producing incredibly smooth, long lasting fabrics. It's a less "hairy" cotton fiber, so it has this softness that is uniquely its own (you notice it with the broadcloths especially). I could go on and on about the fabrics, but much better to just let you read the page we built!

    Hi everyone -

    I'm new to the forum and would love to get opinions on my test shirt before I place an order for a bunch more. Customer service has been great so far from PC!

    The only real change I have is that I want the arms to be slightly tighter. Overall, I'm going for a very fitted look. I have a 42'' chest and 31'' waist, for frame of reference. Part of me thinks the waist could be smaller, but I'm also afraid if that's the case, it'll be too tight. I'm a novice at this so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I've been debating ordering a Roma Cuttaway recently, but I often go tie-less at the office, and I'm concerned the spread is too extreme to wear with a jacket and no tie. Would you mind posting a picture of this shirt with a jacket, sans tie? I've seen plenty of soft collar pictures with a jacket and no tie, but no structure RC pics. It might push me over the edge into a bulk order.

    Posted this in the Kent Wang thread as well, but any idea whether these Kent Wang reversible studs would work with the Proper Cloth tuxedo shirts?

    The studs are 12mm and the Proper Cloth holes are smaller at 9mm. I just don't understand if this is designed to keep the studs from falling out of the holes and thus keeping the shirt fastened or if they truly wouldn't actually fit through the holes in the first place.

    looks like the athletic type...

    For the sleeve width part, you can decrease a little, but you have to watch out for the elbow restriction. http://propercloth.com/reference/lines-around-the-front-of-the-shoulder-bicep/ You should also double check on the sleeve length as well... could be a tad shorter... just my opinion though. It is probably better to wash it a couple of times to see how much the shirt shrinks.

    You can do better on your midsection width. For your reference, I have roughly 32" waist with undershirt, and I wear a 18.50"... no excess fabric in the lower back.

    Additional help: [email protected] or @ccallis

    Were you wearing a tie at work? JW (I'd expect the collar to be more straight/open if you weren't)

    Yeah I was. Good call. I will probably wear it out without a tie soon and see how it holds up.

    Looks fanta
    Definitely a great look. Can you give details on the shirt makeup (fabric, button placement)? Also what are the details on those trousers and coat? They go great together.
