That's what I thought. Maybe we are sharing a single delusion?
Don't forget that you can get thick shirts that are poor quality and thin ones that are good. Weight is almost never an indicator of quality.
Correct. I may be mistaken but the impression I get is that the guys who want the luxury shirts are slightly older and this not quite so slim fit. I'm not sure the company really wants to promote them anymore, their business is all about the 4 for £100. £25 per shirt suits the vast majority of clients, once you move up to £40 a shirt you're in slightly new territory.

Not everyone wants linen, I certainly understand that, and fresco is a nice alternative. Brown is a great casual colour - though I'd prefer it without the rusty-hue - and I'd gladly wear it to a summer event without feeling...
Apologies, I totally missed the refference, my bad! (I think you mean parable, rather than paradigm)
The point of this thread is that they are more than fine, they are perfect for his frame.
