    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Pink Sig. twill looks stunning!
    Just so folks know you can add all sorts of goodies to your Ratio shirt. I was wearing my white OCBD yesterday and was admiring the chest button they put on!

    Nice choice, I have three shirts coming by months' end. Let us know about the weight and fabric - I haven't purchased a madras yet.

    It was a spur of the moment purchase, even though the shirt is going to arrive mid to late August if Ratio's timelines are accurate. I'll be wearing this into October, it stays pretty mild in my part of the world.

    Any thoughts on the fabric Ratio uses?

    I bought two shirts and admittedly haven't worn them much because they are dressier than my everyday attire

    One was a light blue twill that has worked out well. Not the best fabric but fine for the price and a nice looking shirt

    The other was a pinpoint 80's windowpane. Stiff fabric that wrinkles like crazy and is hard to iron. I wouldn't expect luxurious fabric at the price point but this one was worse than expected

    The fit was great on both ( I must be built close to their standard waist sizing drop) and I am considering another.

    I like their standard oxford cloth shirts. Heavier than the pinpoint, but it wears and washes so well. I'm wearing the gray right now (I had it made with black buttons). I also have the Dennison plaid which is a medium weight poplin - again easy wearing, it doesn't wrinkle easily.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    I mainly only have experience with the oxford cloth. It's nice and has washed well for me on each shirt I own. Recently got my first non-oxford from Ratio. A seersucker gingham. Fabric seems nice enough, but I haven't had a chance to wash it yet.
