This collar isn't what I want. I don't need the top button. I really don't need the top two buttons, actually. [Photo by Lynn Baden]

This is from "Hilo Hattie's" and it has a placket like an ordinary button-up shirt. You can see the line of stitches to the right (my left) of the buttons. This is what I want. The print on the pocket lines up -- that's nice, but optional. [Photo by Lynn Baden]

UPDATE: It appears I can't have everything, the collar and the placket go together. Maybe interfacing on the other style instead of the stitching like this one?

The placket isn't stitched down. So the inside piece of fabric tends to fold back, resulting in a triple layer, instead of a double layer, between the buttons and the edge. I don't care for that! [Photo by Lynn Baden]

The shirt has two pockets, I like that. And you can see the corners of the pockets are reinforced. [Photo by Lynn Baden]

Measurements: hips 51", waist 48 1/2". It's got to go over my hips, though, that's the whole point of having a shirt long enough!

There's the slit on the side, the bottom edge of the back isn't continuous with the bottom of the front. [Photo by Lynn Baden]

If I raise my arm, it rides up a bit, but not so much that you can see my undershirt. I could probably stand another inch here, but not two. [Photo by Lynn Baden]

On this shirt, measuring from the top of the shoulders down the front: 33 1/2". From the top of the shoulder down the back, 34", and from the base of the collar down the back, 32 1/2".

If I lift up my arm, this shirt rides up far too high. That's because I'm so tall -- I need extra length in the shirt. In t-shirt terms, I need XXL-TALL, not just XXL. [Photo by Lynn Baden]
