    Are options for removing pockets; The little holes go away after a wash, I tested this on a OBDC before I donated it, wasn't a cheap shirt, but, I learned I disliked the material and button down collar look with my face/head shape.

    Should have added the white ocbd to my last order, Rick. Went for an impromptu hike on Saturday. I feel for the shirt, but it was worth it:

    ^I'm assuming he was wearing it with a pair of raw denim.

    @Darkside is correct. The shirt was tucked into a pair of unwashed 3sixteens and layered with a heavy wool sweater when I decided to hike the coastal trail in SF. Was not thinking ahead to how much moving, stretching, and sweating would be involved and the indigo rubbed off.

    Fact: The journey would not have been as fun if the OCBD was lacking a chest pocket. I'll be buying another one of these very soon.

    This should clearly settle the pocket debate.

    S+M I received my navy blazer and a handful of shirts over the weekend and I'm nothing but impressed again. You guys are quickly taking over my closet.

    Hope this still winds up being a mid-gray as some of the initial shots showed when you guys were testing a different fabric. If it is, insta-kop for me.

    I should have picked up blue oxford in BD while i was there. I went through my shirts on the weekend and they're either too tight or just not quality

    ie floppy collar and terrible patterns.

    Get those BD rolling Rick. I need to revamp my wardrobe with basic staples

    I put my phone in the shirt pocket all the time, and occasionally pens. I would really have to reconsider purchasing S&M without the chest pocket on the OCBD's. I'd still probably get it, but I'd have to think about it a bit longer. Just sayin'...

    I personally enjoy the pocket on my own, OCBD's. I have 4 different versions of white that I made that span about 3 years. All have pockets on them. Without the pocket the shirt feels incomplete.

    So, for us, our OCBD's will always have a pocket. Now as always, if you don't like the pocket, you can always custom make one. As mentioned before, as we grow and demand builds for the non-pocket version, it wouldn't hurt to do a trial run and see how they check out, but the pocket version will become the standard.

    These are most likely the 3 shades we will start with for the full canvas program. From the top down, Mid Gray, Charcoal, True Navy.
