Compare in what way? The amount of the adjustment is listed beside the selection.

There is an issue with the auto-load. Tech team is working on it.
Is your 'very straight -1/2"' the same as their 'neck back -1/2"', is your 'square' the same as their 'square'.

Send the shirt in to copy. Actually, by default, we cut the back pattern smaller, so it's strange that there is extra fabric in the back and tight in the front. Usually it would be the opposite.

Also, you're entitled to first shirt free remake now. So take advantage of that.
Can we get a remake even if our first order was made six months ago? The rest of the order is still in the making, so the order is technically not even fulfilled yet.

yep. This is 2019’s cream Sondrio (on the right) compared to this years cream Quest (left):

I took them outside and tried to get as accurate of a pic as I could. They’re very close, but the cotton/linen is maybe a touch “warmer” in color (I’d say slightly more yellow, but that would be overstating it). The big difference is the weight- the Quest is lighter weight with a denser weave, where the Sondrio is heavier but more open weave. I have yet to see how the Quest works in real life (hot weather), but the Sondrios work GREAT from experience- I ordered the off white and am considering a backup pair of cream. The Quest is definitely less textured and more “polished”, but that didn’t stop me from wearing the Sondrios with a hopsack blazer and linen shirts. I’d add that the weight and fabric blend of the Sondrios meant they didn’t have an issue with wrinkling like straight linen or thin cotton- that remains to be seen on the Quest. Regarding fit: they’re both 32 Contemporary and fit as expected. The high rise, as ive commented on before, fits more snug in the waist than the same size in standard fit.

edit: I should add, IRL the color is much closer to what is on the website, but it’s hard to capture in a picture. Definitely in the typical “eggshell/cream” realm.

It's not that it's that much better. It's more rare but different. It's has a softer hand and a double twill weave. Similar, but distinct. Also, Dugdale is a merchant rather than a Mill, so there is a slight premium from Dugdale because of that nature.
How did you guys settle on Dugdale vs Cav twill from say moon, h&s or HFW?

Just got a few lightweight chinos. Love the olive, slate blue and lightgray. Unfortunately the cream is too see-through for my taste, the pocket lining is pretty visible in regular light in the front and back
