Thank you for the PSA! I have been looking for some good navy wool trousers, and Hertling is top notch.

I was excited about the prospect of the OCBDs, but it looks like the collars points are pretty short. They are sport shirt model so perhaps not meant for ties?

Well, I suppose they would be ok with ties if your neck size matched up with your sport shirt size very closely, but I agree the points looked shorter than most on this forum would prefer.

Just ordered a pink and white in large. I'll post observations when it arrives. Since I hardly wear a tie any more, and have plenty of shirts that do button correctly with a tie, this will be great to wear with a sweater vest and jacket.

Just got delivered the shirt from Hertling. All good. Only problem is that I ordered a pink/white stripe and they shipped a pink although the shipping info clearly states pink/white. Not all bad. I did not have a pink OCBD and now I do. This one is almost surely made in the Garland plant in NC. Same fabric as a yellow BB full fit that I recently bought also on steep discount. I judge the Large to be a 16.5/34 so if I decide to wear a tie it will work. It IS a bit more tailored than the full fit BB model but still a good fit. Not sure I'll order another pink/white stripe or complain as I do not need another pink now.

Just got my pink shirt and recalled your post re: collar points. The collars are almost exactly like the BB points that are hanging in my closet. Certainly not shortys like some out there these days. LIkely a regent fit and the L is almost exactly a 16.5/34.

Having both pink and pink and white OCBDs is ok by me. It is almost a versatile as blue with an added measure of panache. I love either with olive chinos, with khaki shorts, with a grey herringbone and a challis or foulard tie, or with a blazer and my new English setter club emblematic tie from Chipp. Good news about the points!

TKI, being retired and already having 4 BB OCBD and 4 BB pinpoint that I have not had the need to wear since late January due to this virus mess and turning 73 later this week, I think I'll just accept the pink as Karma and let it go at that. Lets get this mess over and I'll surely pay full price for a pink/white if the need arrises then. Cheers, Tom

I like your common sense. I recently used Noom to lose some weight. Now my wardrobe would fit in my duffel bag. I am 71, as I recall, and I have five OCBDs and no pinpoints or other dress shirts. It's plenty. In fact it is more than I need! Cheers, Tim

That is great to hear. Thanks for reporting back. I am tempted to get one as well.

I got my trousers today. They came with a great looking cloth mask and a koozie. No better accessories for a pandemic!

Hand sanitizer, antibacterial soap, eye protection, a face mask, latex gloves....and now a Koozie are essential elements of our Pandemic Survival kit. Sounds like it's time to update my kit? LOL. ;)

I purchased and just received both a pink and white stripe and blue and white stripe shirt from the sale. I have the XL, and they fit very near to my 17.5/35 Michael Spencer shirts. They are both excellent, in construction, weight, and fit! The collars are a bit short compared to what most on this forum seem to look for, but I will not be wearing them with ties, and they are long enough. Certainly not the "shorties" you see from the mass-marketed OCBDs. The weight of the cloth seems to match the weight of my Michael Spencers as well. I am pleased with the shirts and think I need to go back for the solid blue and pink! I would pay the full price for these; four for the cost of two is fantastic!
