Just placed my first order! But in my excitement I missed the 'special instructions' section where I could try and ask for the secret menu collars :(
Can you email us at [email protected] with your order number and request and I'll see if we can get it to the floor in time?

Are you able to pinpoint what you didn't love about the campus oxford? I wonder if you might find that the oxford softens up and breaks in for you over time (if it felt heavy/stiff)?
The shirt was washed once and air dried, after which it felt very stiff. Hopefully you're right and it'll soften up over time.

Gotcha, sounds good, let us know how it feels after a few washes. They do break-in over time, and should be nearly identical to BB in terms of fabric construction. That said, if it doesn't end up breaking in as much as you'd like, you may ultimately prefer our All Season Oxfords, which are a bit lighter and softer, and we actually do a special garment wash on them too to soften them up a bit. Most ready-to-wear oxfords are washed to soften them before they reach the customer, which we do not do to our Campus Oxfords--that may be part of what you're noticing.

If you air dry anything it will be stiff. Put it in the dryer. Or hang it outside.

Hi Eric, Any chance you can do a camp collar as one of your 'secret collar styles'?

Not currently, though it's on our wishlist. A Camp Collar is not just a collar choice. It actually changes the body of the shirt as well, which makes it more of a challenge in MTM. It's also generally accompanied with a flat bottom hem, which is something we're also hoping to add sooner or later.

Here is the result of my first Ratio order. I took the questionnaire initially, but ended up tweaking some measurements by iterating on my previous proper cloth attempts. Pics below are pre wash, but I'm pretty thrilled with the result. I noticed a bit of bunching around the shoulders on the back pic, any advice on how I could improve on this?20190910_062606.jpg20190910_062651.jpg

That looks too tight in the midsection.

Thanks for sharing! Looks pretty good. Might be a little snug in the midsection, but there is certainly room for preference there and could be this particular photo.

Welcome to SF Eric! Here's a snap of most of my Ratio shirts. Will be posting fit pics soon.
Thanks for the welcome! That's quite the collection. I spy some personal favorites in there (our cotton-merino flannels). Excited to see fit pics.

It is tight in the midsection but I plan to resolve that by getting less fat, not changing the shirt. :bored: I'm going to blame this one on football off-season.
