    What colors? I will order these instantly. Anyone have experience with the collar roll on the OCBDs?

    I have a roayl oxford that's a bd collar. The collar roll is really good. Not quite Kamakura good, but good. I'll try to post a pic today.

    Can you remind us on colours again? I handled the sample and it was very nice. Value is unbeatable they will go fast.

    I had a DB made by Rick but I'm pretty sure I went 3 inches on it because that Kamakura roll is stupid big in my opinion. I don't wear sport coats and the time I do wear a suit its' always with a tie.

    Edit. Is the default button down 3.5 inches? I always get MTM

    I bought one of the first batch of OTR OCBD that Rick brought in a while back. I like the fit a lot but there are some room for improvement on the fabric. Looking forward to the new fabric!!

    The Oxford will be run in 5 colours to start.

    The 4 in the pic + White.

    The fabric is some of the nicest oxford we've seen. It's a great balance of dress and casual with the right weight and just the right amount of brushing on the surface. Very excited.

    Default BD is 3 3/8. The Kamakura is 3.5. The one we made for you was 3.

    Great. Are they available for custom once they are here or they will be made into OTR OCBD?

    The light blue one is a staple for sure.

    Not sure if you addressed this, but any plan for university striped oxfords?

    Yes, after we get these first ones running, probably in a blue and a burgundy.

    S&P OCBDs are perfection in my opinion. Actually, any of the new button down shirts are fantastic. The bang for your buck is unbelievable -- I'm really surprised the fashion blogs haven't picked up on this yet.

    Collar roll is great, perfect length for tucking (or not), and slim fit is just slim enough. I have two of the OCBDs and one of the Madras... I'm still debating picking up another madras despite the cold weather.

    I have no idea why we can't get any media coverage, I was having this conversation today with a customer. I've tried with a couple of PR firms as well as reached out myself with no luck. I feel we are doing something of value to a lot of our customers. If we could rapidly grow our base, the possibility to do more for our customers is even greater, like more depth to size assortment and and wider and newer range of product offerings all with the same quality/value proposition.

    You're clearly not greasing the right palms.
