You know that has been my main hesitation, but there are so many people on the forum that love and adore their shirts that it make you want to try them. I like Lorenzini shirts and they are machine made, but you are correct. That's a nice piece of change to pay and then be disappointed. I like the movement of handwork in a shirt, but as I have read in other threads it's not the be all end all.
What brands do you wear Tried & True?
