It is just really versatile. Tried it with a bunch of different outfits today and it blends in very easily.
Lovely!

I've been looking to get some, but was wondering if you could do me a favor and measure a few things in the shirts, specifically the:

- Collar point length/spread (some sources say 3.5", others 3.25" for the length)
- Rear collar height
- Front button placket width

Also, does anyone know whether the collars are fused and/or lined?

I'd be incredibly grateful if you or anyone with the OCBD could help me out!

Could anyone tell me how Drake's trousers (not jeans) fit in general? Would you describe them as mid or high rise?
I have the Lovat green cotton suit (which is very good) and the trousers sit right at/barely below my belly button. Same for the games flannel trousers I have. So if that's high or mid-rise to you is I guess up to you.

Also, my experience with this season's archive sale was kind of lukewarm. I ordered a chambray shirt, primary stripe rugby, and seersucker shorts. The shirt is great but the rugby was way off their size chart and the seersucker shorts had both pleats facing left. Bummer to have QC issues but at least they were fine with returns for the off-kilter items.

Both pleats facing left… nice 👌!

I've tried on - I think - all the fits, and none are true high waists. All are natural waists, a little above the hips but below the navel.


Today outfit with a denim chore.
I bought it cheaply second hand, I didn't think I'd like it that much.

On my 15.5" OCBD, rear collar height and collar point length are 2" and 3 3/8" if measured with the collar flipped up, and 1.75" and 3.25" if measured with the collar flipped down.

Front placket width is just a hair under 1.5 inches (~1 7/16").

Same positive surprise here – that denim chore has been one of my most-worn light jackets. Gives me extra joy as I find the lighter blue washed versions somewhat more interesting in product pics and hope that I can wear the dark one close to them

Drake's fans on the more casual side (denim, oxfords, shetlands, fleece vs tailoring), when it's raining and foul what footwear do you reach for?

RM Williams Chelsea?
Paraboot for the deep sole?

Alden chukkas with crepe sole, or Common Projects trainers.

Beat up Blundstones.
Aurora shoes.
Beat up Timberland Boat shoes (with the lug sole).
Paraboot Avignon for "dressier" occasions.

I am still considering the ubiquitous Paraboot Michael for exactly these weather conditions.

Also, if I am feeling particularly rugged: LL Bean Duck boots.
