    From photos I've seen of your semi-spread I thought they would be like this. The Kamakura spread is spot on. I guess I'll see how the collar is once my custom shirt comes in. You should include this as an option right on your site when you get to the collar selection option while ordering custom.

    Wear it without the collar stays and you will pretty much get the same effect. It's the softness of the collar and lack of support which makes the collar sit that way.

    In the future just ask for soft unfused lining in the collar.

    Ah, this is true and exactly what I do with my Van Laack shirts, which have fused collars. I also specified a slighty longer collar point with my order, which will probably help me get my desired look.

    Can you PM the order#. I can look right now. I actually have to get on a call with the factory in about 1/2 hour.

    Rick, what a class act.


    Question: Are the incoming University Striped OCBDs going to be the unfused collar style or the newer lightly fused collar similar to Kamakura?

    Agreed. The model of customer service.

    I have no idea. This conversation just started today. But I've already put 4 different versions of the collar into production. They are leaving the factory tomorrow I'll have them on Monday/Tuesday here in Toronto.

    1. Light fused Collar.

    2. Medium fused Collar.

    3. Light Unfused Collar

    4. Self Fabric Lined Collar

    What is your preference? But honestly, to get the same effect as Kamakura, it has to have light interlining.

    Rick,
    I'd love it if you offered a cutaway like Kamakura does. I have a few of theirs and I'm a big fan, except the Tokyo slim is ever so slightly tight in the chest for me.

    Something like this:

    Guys lets have a vote on what we want to see going forward.

    I'll let you guys decide on the collar but for the love of god I vote to get rid of the ugly center pleat. It looks "okay" when tucked in, but when untucked it looks like shit.

    Is the light interlining not an option? I personally don't have much knowledge about fusing/interlining of collars. All I know is that I want my OCBDs to look good nestled underneath a sports coat or without. I think I would only rarely wear an OCBD with a tie.

    However, if you really want to make things interesting, you could offer the oxford cloth with the semi-spread collar.

    I wear all your shirts w/o collar stays (tie or no tie, but more often when I wear a tie) and I like how they softly curve down to rest on my body. It looks great and I think if people give that a shot they may get the soft look they're looking for.
