Hah. I like that theory.

Here are a few photos.

+1

Who thought that the "special under collar fabric" would be a good idea? I guess it's made for those collar popping B&T clubbers...

But guys come on enough with the sarcasm, people might actually think you are really complaining about this shirt.

It looks great!

Welcome to the forum there bright fight ... interesting that all of your 4 posts have been in this one thread and have been overwhelmingly positive about this new website? Coincidence?

Anyway I said it earlier ... they can 'reserve the right' to put that ugly lining on their shirts, and I can 'reserve the right' to purchase elsewhere.

bright fight, no sarcasm, I am complaining; I feel like I was ripped off. I bought a shirt that, because of the collar fabric, which is not shown on the web site, I cannot wear to work. I will not be purchasing from the site again, which is a shame because otherwise it has potential.

How does something under the collar that you can't even see make it so you can't wear it at work?

If he's not wearing a tie and wearing the shirt with the top button undone. I'm sure that in this circumstance his coworkers could catch a "flash" of the crap under the collar.

Rafa - have you take this issue to the company? I can't believe they wouldn't fix that for you.

Love the website, but definitely not willing to try them out because of your issues.

Got an email reminding me that their "Buy 2 Get 1 free" promo is expiring on the 19th. They've made a few changes which shows they may be listening and moving in the right direction.

From the email I received:

"As an extra service, we are also offering customers to get their free shirt sent before the other two for any fit adjustments you'd like. After trying on the free shirt you simply send us any fit adjustments you may want and we'll make the two other shirts accordingly. This means you can be even more sure that you'll be getting shirts that have a great fit and what's better is that for any future shirts you order from us you'll be getting the same great fit.

News: New Signature Option

Together with the very positive responses we've received from our customers, there have also been some suggestions for improvement, and one of these is our signature. Some of you want to use the shirts for work purposes and want the signature to be even less obvious. So we have introduced: two formats: Full Mode and Business Mode. This is the update from our FAQ page:

Question: Can I get dress shirts without your fabric signature?

Answer:
Our secret fabric signature goes on every dress shirt that we make. The signature is defaulted to Full Mode, which is concealed under the collar flip and only visible when flipped up. You can also request Business Mode for our signature, which is a small tag hidden beside the washing label. If you want to request Business Mode for the signature, contact support@shirtsmyway.com shortly after having placed your order."


I've also been told that they are planning on adding quite a few more fabric selections in the future.

Bizarre. What in the world do they get out of their "secret fabric signature"? It seems like more work and expense... to annoy their customers. It sounds like something thought up by a coked up marketing executive.

Just to be clear, I mean more fabric selections for the shirts, not for the secret fabric signature (not sure if you were actually confused, or just quoted a random part of the post :-) )

Anyone know if they still put that ridiculous crap under their collars? I was about to order, searched here first, and now am reconsidering. If I wanted somebody else to personalise my shirt with crap, I'd hand the laptop to my three year old nephew.

I have toyed with the idea of online custom shirt ordering ( right now it is only made to order Gitmans) but I take so much pride in how my custom shirts fit that I find it hard to do it.
It is near impossible to get a true custom fit if the actual tailor is not the one taking the measurements, because there is more to shirt making (and suit making for that matter) than the tape measure. It is about body reading, the client's personality, and the client's occupation that also goes into getting the proper fit for a custom shirt.
Everyone wants a deal on custom shirts, but the true value is measured in correct fit and longevity of the actual shirt, not price.
