Sooo, what do we think is going on here?
Hi Marc--Responded to your fit questions on the other thread you had going. Hope I answered all of your questions!
Thanks much! i will make the suggested changes and order another shirt!
Today we introduced 7 new lightweight broadcloth ginghams. They feature 50's single ply construction and start at $85.
Four different multi ginghams in some really nice vibrant colors for spring. Perfect pairings for our soft collars and cuffs.
On the more classic side, we have 3 new medium ginghams that can be dressed up easily. Think these should be really versatile options for guys who want something that'll handle both casual and formal wear.
Also, thanks for the fabric suggestions--keep 'em coming! Hopefully these new casual styles build out our options on that front, but it sounds like some guys here would like a few more windowpane styles.
With regards to fixing the shirt I currently own, what can be done?
That's what I'm talking about! Gonna start saving up for that navy and red gingham for the summer.
I'd echo the comments about trying to offer more casual fabrics, although for me that's more a question of material than design: linens, cotten/linen blends, and a wider variety of heavy oxfords, flannels, and maybe even some over-dyed oxfords would all be great.
Just picked up two of the new ginghams
Would definitely love some more windowpanes. Any estimate on when the two Thomas Mason glen plaids will be back in stock, by chance?
that is really odd. too much fabric between the two buttons there, aside from that, the shirt fits stellar in my opinion.
Awesome! Hoping the Thomas Mason glen plaids will be back in stock in the next few weeks. Should have a bunch of new fabric styles launching this week and next, though.
We can re-cut your current shirt free of charge. If you'd like to shoot us an email at [email protected] with your order number, we can help get everything processed and your new shirt to your door by April 17!
I own a ton of the Soft Ivy collar shirts, both oxford cloth and broadcloth, and absolutely love them. I wear them with a tie and they produce a fantastic roll. I've posted pictures in the OCBD collar roll thread (around page 20) and will probably continue to do so.
I've seen them! Thanks for trying to put a little life in that thread.
Yesterday we introduced a bunch of new fabrics from Thomas Mason and Canclini.
Two new summery checks from Thomas Mason made using 60/1 x 60/1 compact construction. We love these as an alternative to gingham in the warmer months.
This blue 100s 2-ply end on end stripe from Thomas Mason is a follow up on the light blue version we've had that's incredibly well-reviewed. Totally versatile business option that irons up really crisply.
Another add on to an existing series, this lavender houndstooth looks like a solid from a distance but you get that little bit of pattern once you get up close.
A Canclini mini gingham with 120/2 x 80/1 compact construction. Super silky with a small enough pattern to work really well in the office.
A totally opaque twill from Thomas Mason that holds up against wrinkling really, really well. Made with 80s 2-ply construction, it's perfect for formal events.
Let me know what you guys think! Should have a bunch of great affordable business basics launching next week, as well.
I would love to see prints like what Gitman Vintage puts out, nothing too crazy though.
I was looking at ordering a short-sleeve and just wanted to say that I'd love to see more short-sleeve options … cuffed, and maybe cuffed with a v-cut. Is this something that can be requested when ordering?
^ While I'm at it, button flap pockets and dual pockets would be cool as well … I think I've been looking at too many Apparel Arts fotos
