Hello there, I recently made three shirts with AC, two with their house fabric and one with the cheapest Thomas Mason option. All of which have come out very nicely and the customer service was superb as I wanted an extra spread collar and it took several fittings to get right. I do however have a question or two that borders on noob territory but I would like to get some clarification if possible. 1) I didn't specify how the french cuffs and collars would be done, so when I got them back, I found them to be quite stiff. Compared to the white Brooks non-iron shirts that I wear, the collars and cuffs are very stiff. Is it simply because of a different method of construction, or is the AC collar fused? 2) I've noticed while ironing that the thread/stitching around the armholes have had a shrinking effect. I had similar experiences with the Peter Lee stuff at the lowest price range, and haven't had this happen on the BB stuff despite washing it many many times, is that due to the fabric not being washed before tailoring? 3) My Thomas Mason shirt, the feel on the finer isn't as soft and smooth at the BB shirt that I have. I thought the higher thread count would automatically translate into a smoother fabric, or am I just missing something here? I must clarify though, I thoroughly enjoyed making shirts with AC, they're top notch in terms of service and care, but these are just questions that my inexperience in shirtmaking aren't able to answer. If any of you have suggestions for the next time I go, I would be grateful!
