I cancelled it and they eventually returned my own white bespoke shirt, charging me a ridiculous amount for postage!

I might try again another time - I've been in contact with Finollo and might place an order there later this year...smile.gif

Reduced to 9 as I haven't worn any of the other 8 shirts in the past 6 months+ and I don't think I ever will wear them again. 2 OCBDs (solid blue, red stripe on white), 7 shirts for the office (3 solid light blue, 2 white, 1 light blue bengal stripe, 1 light blue small graph checks) all Luxire.

 

Need quite a few more shirts, aiming for at least 14. Just takes a while with online MTM as I still haven't perfected my fit so don't want to order too many at once. Probably getting a few more solid blues and some pencil stripes (blue and red on white) next for the office and a few more OCBDs as well.

At last count I had about 54 shirts hanging up and another 20 or so in boxes unopened. TBH, I only really regularly rotate about 12, most commonly my whites.

Prob somewhere around 60

I'm still at 13, although I don't rotate very much and the rtw too big shirts wear out more quickly, but I'm hoping this will keep me going for quite a while...smile.gif

I'm stuck around the 20 mark and I'm happy with that..

A good mix of linen, cotton ,Sea Island and Poplin..

A few Ralph Lauren, Versace, Pink , GF FERRE, Charvet, Burberry's...

I'm planning to actually reach the 12 mark in a few years time..

Sounds like a nice round number!....I'm on a clothing ban, so I'm sure some will wear out, but I'd also like to end up with about 12!smile.gif

The problem with good quality shirts they tend to be with us for 15/20 years...

They finish looking rather tired.

I stopped buying 2 years ago apart from the odd summer shirts..

You must have a lot of shirts, or very good fortune, for that kind of longevity.

With a ~10 shirt "effective rotation"* I'm getting ~4 years out of mine.

*I have many more shirts, but I go through my favorites as though there are on a 10 shirt rotation - i.e. they are worn once every two weeks. At that rate, they've been good for about 4 years. I guess that equates to 25*4 = 100 wears. Seems about right. Alumo and Thomas Mason fabrics, mostly.

I used to have around 30 shirts..

Some have died and some look very tired...

My Thomas Pink shirts have lasted longer than I thought to be honest...

My Ralph Lauren have a 5/6 years life span..

I think mine last between 100-200 wears depending on whether they're rtw or bespoke.

But they never last 20 years!!!!smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif
