Gawd, someone is counterfeiting Thomas Pink shirts? Is there no end to man's fiendishness?
I have a Pink shirt from like 1999 which ive worn maybe 4 times. It feels like wearing slightly scratchy, thin toilet paper, so if their quality has further descended then definitely head to the makes RJMan listed for you. I have Harvie & Hudson, Turnbull and Hilditch & Key rtw and theyre all respectable.
The Hilditch collars are too low for me but I prefer their rtw ones to their mtm program which was a true di-sahs-ter for me. Seems like the best bargains are from Harvie and Hudson directly http://harvieandhudson.com/
and getting Hilditch from Bromleys site in the UK. Although the Bromley's site offers hilditch at less of a bargain now than I seem to remember. I like the Harvie design better, though the fit is a bit looser, the collars are grander and the cuffs larger, stiffer and richer looking.
New and Lingwoods shirts are nice as well. Prowse and hargood I dont know much about but their Jumbo stripe shirt intrigues me. Anyone ever try them?http://www.prowseandhargood.com/prod...ripe-shirt.htm
