Hmmm. So my TM Lewin order came... but my oxford shirt is missing. Good thing about TM Lewin is that their call centre is in England so they are still working at this time. They just reordered the shirt free.
I got myself a free woven wool tie with the order. Turns out made in China (not unexpected) but surprised to see they use VBC fabric. Not sure what line is the "Special Selection" range is though.
judging from the look of his his friends in his box... almost feels like bunch of stereotypical douchebag meat heads.But then they might just be the nicest people irl.the rules feel a bit restrictive for me. But that's his rules for his dress so he can do what he prefers.
