I assume that much of the "feel" you are referring to has to do with "fit" and so it is nearly impossible for us to predict for you. There are a million threads on the "worth" question. The answer boils down to: only if you think it is.
I just got my first Panta tie in the mail yesterday (have a few pairs of Ed's awesome trousers) and it is wonderful. Easily superior to every other tie that I own in its price range ($99-$120) and the peer to many of the much more expensive offerings I have seen. It is great to have such a great local option. Thanks, Ed. Also, I have a few swatches from Ed of some of his linen offerings. I will be done with them soon and would be more than happy to pass them along to...
[[SPOILER]] Those are wonderful. Thank you for posting.
well, you are at five months, but only because there have been two send backs. the turn around you are detailing (1-2 months) is pretty typical (at least in my experience) for shirts. that said, it sounds like you are having fit issues and maybe what you want i a shirt is either (1) not being accurately expressed to your shirt maker or (2) not something your shirt maker can manage.

i don't even have an ipad and i want one of those
Congrats, Ed. Really looking forward to seeing your stuff.
There are a million threads on this already. But, just yesterday, I received a box of shirts in the mail (I recently moved from NYC) from Carl at CEGO.

Ugh! If you ever get a wingtip boot in an 8.5, please let me know.
Change either the square or the tie. That the two are basically opposite patterns detracts from the fit. White linen square would work better.
I have already put in my two-cents about using CEGO, which is the only person I have bought a shirt from in the past four and a half years (since my first order). I much prefer having my shirtmaker local and having the shirts made in the United States. I think this, all other things being equal, makes quality and service better, since you can always talk to your shirtmaker and he has a tight handle on the manufacturing process. The fit and personal service have always...
