Unfortunately not much matters except the way it feels on you over time. RTW designers like the ones we're discussing are able to commission fabrics to order. Part of the difference you feel might be the finishing of the fabric - some have a silky hand and some have a drier feel. They may be cotton blends. The fabric could be washed with enzymes. There are many possibilities. Anyway I've bought a lot of shirts from Maxfield too but I don't think any are that...

Good idea except you can't really tell much by the "test", particularly if you don't know what a canvas really feels like. You also don't know if the padstitching on different parts is by hand or machine etc etc etc. that might make the difference between a $1800 samuelsohn and something significantly more expensive that is hand made.
