We became their US representatives, so now I don't even need to leave the store!! How easy is that??

I'd say you are spot on with the quality ranking of these premier shirt makers Don Carlos!

Below Harvie and Hudson really? I have 2 of these and one of Hilditch and Key, and beg to differ.

Also, I think quality to price ratio wise T@A is mismatched.
I prefer BB Golden Fleece when on sale is hard to beat.

I agree.

I own both, bought within a year or so of each other. I also own Finamore and T &A.
I would rank H & H below, H &K as well as T &A and Finamore.
I am no expert on the fine points of quality in better shirts. In fact I have some shirts that are
more than 10 years old, notably Drakes ( yes, the tie people) and Hawes & Curtis ( old owners)
that seem as well-made as H&K , T& A, etc. What I don't like about H&H are the stiffer collars.

Visited the newly refurbished store in Jermyn Street yesterday and was very disappointed. Firstly they used to make shirts in both a classic and a slim fit. They have replaced that with a single shirt cut which is something between the two. Secondly the range of shirts in the store was not as large as I would have expected shortly after the grand opening. Finally, I was shocked at the prices. I was going to buy two single cuff white shirts but on finding that they were over £150 each I decided not to buy them. Prices have moved up by nearly 30% since before the store closed for a full refit. While this might work for the new owners, I as an old customer find it a bit rich. There has been no dicernible increase in quality and much as I have liked their shirts in the past I will be shopping elsewhere in the future. The new owners are clearly trying to create a new luxury brand but they should be aware that this will not happen simply by increasing prices.
