Have people been satisfied with the cotton/linen dress shirts? Are they running TTS and/or are they shrinking after a cold wash (hopefully not)? Lastly are they reasonably soft against the skin. Thanks.
I like mine. Maybe more than my 100% linen shirts. The cotton provides it a more formal look, because it's stiffer than pure linen. I have not had issues with my regular size in these.I wouldn't say the fabric was soft, but it does not bother me.

Don't go putting these ideas in my head :cry: You've got a point though. I suppose I need to figure out how often I'll be wearing heaver jackets underneath to determine what size to get.
I’m actually okay with it only working with a suit, as I’ve been using it as my more formal overcoat. I have a Gloverall that can fit more underneath if I’m needing something to wear with a sportcoat/sweater

The cotton-linens are terrific. For me they fit the same as my other Spier dress shirts (the 100% linens do run a bit long). And they are soft to the touch

Excuse it however you wish, but the shirt is too small. So you're slouching a bit in your seat... that doesn't mean the buttons and placket should pull and gape the way they are in your pic.
I don't see how anybody could see it differently. I have a linen PC shirt (that I suspect was cut a bit narrow to begin with) that looks exactly the same when I sit. It's not sausage casing tight, and it's certainly still functional, but it IS too tight without question.

Mine fit TTS even after a cold wash. The white one does feel a hair short and has more of a linen texture to it. Regretting missing out on the green

i made a mistake passing these up. OOS in my size, i had white from last year and just got navy and brown.
that's true for a lot of cool products with S&M, though I placed the order for these when they were released I wasn't quick enough and got an OOS email. But few days back these showed back up in my size again

What size?
FWIW I use to purchase shirts in a 15.5 slim but will go up to a 16 extra slim next time round. The cuffs are really, really snug without me wearing a watch. A larger cuff would seem to be a good fix- too large, and you can simply move the cuff buttons. But there's really no remedy if the cuffs come small.
