In my experience, their fabrics are subpar, but most annoyingly the collar and cuffs are extremely stiff and don't soften up at all over time. They feel cheap.

You won't find much love for that look here - it's pretty much universally reviled in the SF community, and, to my mind, for good reason. Shipping from the UK isn't that bad. Certainly nowhere near as much as the price...

That's often said around here, but as some of the actual tailors (Despos, Jeffreyd) have pointed out, it's not in fact true.

Sounds like a bad idea, unless the body measurements of this two-sizes-too-big shirt somehow match those of a 15.5 shirt. If that is the case, for some reason, I suppose it doesn't matter that you'd never be able to button the top button and/or wear a tie with the shirt.
