Has anyone ordered the blue linen l65? The cloth photo and finished shirt photo suggest quite different colors and I'm wondering which is right.
post #2252 of 3282
Agreed, and maybe stock 20 -30 good expensive fabrics rather than 100's and list them as premium always in stock - I would buy samples of these and then buy shirts from these.

From the feedback in this thread the customer service seems to be hit and miss - they definitely missed with my order.

My order was sent out on the 19th of August and from what I gather it was sent to the USA instead of Australia. Coupled with that, the tracking number and link don't work.

It's a shame because because if it turned out relatively well I probably would have ordered a few shirts.

Hi. Please send us the Order # and we'll check what happened with your package.

Cheers,

Expecting us to order your most expensive shirts without the option of seeing the fabric beforehand is bizarre.

We agree with you. One of the main reason why we are able to sell our product at lower prices is to manage our business risk and inventory. If we don't stock fabric we don't sell, our customers don't have to bear the hidden cost of those unsold inventory. In any case, those were business decisions that was made in the past and our size and our growth now dictate that we revisit those decisions. It will take time, however, for us to adjust our purchasing and inventory.

We're toying with the possibility allowing our customers to pass around the most expensive swatches like alumno and thomas mason collections.

I obviously don't know what happened to them, but I do know that the likelihood of their being lost by USPS is exceedingly small. It seems more likely each day that I'm just out the shirts/money.

Oh no pls don't say this. I sent one of my bespoke shirts about a month ago.

It takes about 3 weeks to more than a month for some people to send samples to us - this is the story for standard international post. However when it's sent via DHL, the pack arrives sooner. We can understand the risk of sending a shirt to us. We'd recommend having an old shirt sent to us of course.

My latest order includes two linen shirts: L69, L70. The green check is k183.

I ordered linen for the first time. Since the fabric is not as dressy, I should have modified my "dress shirt" measurements accordingly. I recommend shortening the length of the shirt and increasing the hip measurement by an inch or two.

Just received a couple more shirts today. These are definitely my best fitting shirts yet; with the minor adjustments I made I think I finally nailed the measurements. My only complaint though (and it's a very minor issue) is that instead of a french cuff they gave me a square cuff on one of the shirts. Still looks great but not exactly what I ordered. Obviously this won't effect my decision to continue ordering shirts. satisfied.gif

EDIT: Picture posted.

Although the k183 fabric is listed as a two-ply 80s cotton, it's thinner than others I have ordered. This might bother me if not for the fact that I do not intend to wear the shirt in Fall or Winter. Regarding the coloration: the green dye is the perfect spring green, and the white is off-white, reducing the contrast somewhat.

Thank you. How are the feel of the fabric? Is it soft and a bit "fluffy" or more "cardboxy"?
post #2264 of 3282
Not fluffy at all... I actually think i was wearing a shirt in that fabric when we met at school last week (or was it two weeks ago?).
post #2265 of 3282
Yeah, I actually recall that when you mention it. So, What is your opinion on the fabric? Worth $ 70? And what type of collar would you recommend. I was thinking about a button down, but not quite sure.
