    Are the Hyde Park a dressier OCBD? What's the fabric like?
    I have a couple of the LE Hyde Park OCBDs and they are pretty great shirts. They are "dressier" in that they aren't made of washed or pre-distressed fabric. The collar is decently sized and holds a tie well although I wish it were a little bigger like they used to be. Like @Jamie said, it's nice being able to select neck/sleeve sizes.

    Thanks. I think right now I'm looking for more of a washed OCBD. I do have a couple of other supima LE OCBDs that I picked up for virtually pennies a couple of years back. Unfortunatley they're the non-iron stuff but other than that they are very decent. I wear them occassionally, and they're decently sized, not too slim, not too big.

    Thanks. This morning they looked rather good as the leather fully absorbed the coat of Lexol I applied before retiring for the night. I'll polish them later and post pictures of the completed process this weekend.

    Regards,

    @Duvel, I agree with Lukeduke - the fabric is pretty thick, but its not soft (at least not at first). WIth some washing and wearing, they do soften over time. So, yeah, if you want a soft, washed OCBD, then go with the Sail Rigger. I'm curious to hear how it compares to J.Crew...

    It's unimaginably beautiful...

    I payed $3895 for it brand new with the Omega 4-year warranty. Honestly, it's a much better deal to just buy it new if you can find it around $4000. Most don't go below $3500 if they're in good condition and even less if it has a factory warranty.

    Speedy pros or what models, out of curiosity?

    I like the PO quite a bit. I may get a black one in 42mm some day in the far, far future. Went with the 38.5mm Skyfall AT. Fits my wrist quite well. 7.25".

    I was saving up my thrifting eBay profits to buy a new 27" iMac, but I decided to go with a refurb'd Mac Mini and a cheap monitor instead. I blew the difference on clothes (egregious brag list below). I paid significantly less than retail on everything except for the Nike shoes.

    Filson 257 - otter green

    Alden Perforated Cap Toe Bal - black

    AE Strand - bourbon

    RRL Fleece Hoodie (I got this for more than 50% off retail...still absurd for a cotton/poly sweatshirt I know but damn it's sweet)

    Nike Tech Fleece Crew - grey heather

    Nike Flyknit Trainer+ - bright crimson/white

    Nike Flyknit Racer - white/black volt

    Ledbury OCBD - light blue

    Ledbury Campbell Plaid

    I just bought these from JCrew clearance for $40 bucks to help with my professional attire.... Chinos and button ups?
    I bought the leather ones, i was wondering what you guys think of them.

    Yeah, they're pretty good looking. I'd probably wear them myself.
