    Excited about the new RTW shirt fabrics being released. Most seem to be available only with the full spread collar though, will there be semi-spread options available? I'm particularly looking at the light blue wharton stripe.

    Light blue wharton stripe is a great fabric, purchased it a few months ago. Are we to expect another batch of shirts soon? There are two I definitely plan to purchase and I can't really say there's a third I want for sure, but I also don't want my selections to run out!

    On the topic of OCBD's any objection to totally removing the box pleat? I know it's a traditional part of the OCBD, but we can modernize it by going with a clean back.

    Several members here have voted for the clean back already. Just want to hear the rest of the community for the Yay or Nay.

    Either clean back and/or side pleats.

    I'd be down to check them out with a clean back. The madras, linen, and cotton/linens from this year with clean backs fit me really well.

    My only concern would be that I probably wouldn't buy doubles so the colors I have from you with the box pleat won't get replaced. So I guess it comes down to the line of colors you come out with in the clean back.

    It will probably be a permanent change moving forward once we decide. We wouldn't run both.

    Yay for me. (Or whichever one corresponds to the clean back option.)

    Gotcha. I'm pretty sure I'd be fine with a clean back going forward. Wore the marine blue cotton/linen yesterday and was actually thinking how I liked the clean back and fit on it.

    Almost too bad the incoming big batch of new oxfords won't have the clean back since I'm eyeing like 3-4 of them.

    Keep the box pleat please! I like my shirts slim and I think it would pull too much without a box pleat to give it more room.

    The box pleat adds a bit of room that makes the oxford fit a touch more casually which seems to be expected in an oxford.
    I wouldn't want an oxford to fit like a normal fitted dress shirt as I wear oxfords when I'm moving around more and need the extra room the box pleat gives.
    So if you do remove the box pleat for a clean back, please consider adding a touch of room to the shirt.

    Totally agree. I don't think the Slim would work for me without the box pleat.

    Simple solution:

    Slim - Box pleat
    Contemporary - Clean back
