Any update on how the Bonfanti cloths have worn?  Anyone try the heavier Capri/Flamingo range?

I have had good experiences with the ranges I have tried including New York, Belfast, Capri and Bristol. I've had some shirts for over 5 years and had no problems with durability. I prefer the finer cloths but the Capri and Bristol are quite good. Be sure to allow for more shrinkage with the Bristol.

Cheers for the thoughts, I prefer to buy shirting lengths direct and pre-wash them myself on a hot wash precisely to avoid this.

Can anyone describe the differences between the different lines?

My limited experience with Bonfanti has been as follows:

New York - 170s "voile", somewhat sheer and very cool to wear. Feels slightly crisp and is not incredibly soft. It is described as a voile but I am told that the New York doesn't use voile yarns.

Dallas - 170s poplin, not sheer or as cool to wear as the New York, and decidedly more luxurious.

Capri - 120s poplin, weave seems quite compact, but cloth still creases rather easily for a 120s.
