Brooks Brothers Club (Golf) Collar Shirts - MTM

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for club (rounded) collar shirts for a while now, and have been looking at the BB MTM options as my tall, thin build is not carried in many RTW options. I have a couple of questions for anyone who has used this service.

1) How does the club (BB calls it Golf) collar look on a shirt. The only thing they can show me in the store is a separate collar, which looks kind of long and with too wide a spread, but I can't see it on a shirt.

2) What are opinions of the BB special order shirts in general. I used this service about seven years ago and the shirts were fine, but did not age well at all. Within five years the collars had shrunk and were too tight. They also seemed to twist a bit as if they shrunk at a different rate from the rest of the shirt. No other BB shirts have done this.

All thought appreciated.

I'll chime in, even if I don't have any experience with the BB MTM service.

I purchased one golf collar shirt from BB about a year ago (it was on sale for $30). I've ended up wearing it about 3 times since then. It is a bit difficult to pair up with different looks as it can't be worn open. I find that the collar points (if you want to call them that) are a bit short if anything. I wear a 4 in hand tie and find that the collar point just closes the gap between the shirt and the collar.

As far as the 5 year longevity is concerned, I don't have much experience there. After a few years most of my shirts are finished. I don't expect a shirt to last that long (of course this is dependent on the number of shirts in your stable).
