Turnbull & Asser shirts - quality and fit? - Page 2

post #16 of 39
Really like the two T&A's that I have. Fabric feel is gorgeous. Both are french cuff contrast collars.

Thanks for all the help

Sounds like T&A will live up to my expectations


Just one wonder, the short sleeves.. Just how much shorter are they? A Eterna size 16.5/42 is a perfect fit for me, with sleeves and all. I have a 43 that is too big for me, had to tumble dry it to get it down to proper fit. Both are slimfit, so I am worried if I order a T&A size 16.5 that the sleeves will be too short?

I take it that 16.5 in both Eton/Eterna/T&A is the same size for all three?

Thanks again,

Have no experience or indeed knowledge of Eterna so I can't give you a helpful comparison.

If you have a regular sleeve length you should be fine. I take a long sleeve (36) and the 16.5 was slightly too short.

IIRC the shirt I tried on in the shop had been washed a few times to give you an idea of the actual size after washing.

Fair criticism...but does Gambert charge US100-110 for a shirt? As for sleeve lengths: they are 35.5-36" and shrink to about 35-35.5". I find that by pulling on the sleeves (not by the cuffs or by the shoulder seam, but through the bicep area) you can claim most of that back. Washing in cold water helps too, and helps colours stay fresh (and its cheaper).

I wear slimfit 42s with regular sleevelength in both Eton and Eterna. So I should have no problem?

Measure the shirt, and you'll be able to tell without risking your hard earned money.

New member here but have been lurking for a while. I recently had an order of about 10 Turnbull shirts from the Beverly Hills store. Fit and quality is excellent. Yes they are bit more pricey but I really like how they feel.

They did a sample shirt for me (actually 2 to get the sample perfect) and then I placed my order. I have another 6 on order that should be delivered in about 2 weeks.

Really enjoy the quality and fit. Good luck, I think you will enjoy them.

I do mean the Gambert Daughter's Duke...The makers for Thom Browne, Rag and Bone, Ovadia, and others.

Not at all. The Eton's I've had were fine. Certainly on par with BB, if not a little better. But, recognize Eton and T&A are different price points.

I just measure my Eterna and it comes in at about 90,5-91cm. Is there a proper tutorial on how to measure a shirt, so I can get a proper measurement?

Centre of the yoke to the sleeve cuff, folded if double cuff. Perhaps someone else has a diagram they can upload/link to

I was very disappointed with the Sea Island Cotton shirts I bought from there last year.

I know better quality shirts don't have fused collars but the material was really lose and was a nightmare to press properly.

Did complain to the general manager who was very apologetic and offered to replace the collar.

I'm also not too keen on the hole placement on the cuff. It is far to close to the edge of the cuff IMO.

Just my personal taste though...

Hi! I think very highly of Turnbull and Asser. I wore t&a shirts exclusively for more than 15 years. The quality is outstanding and I still will wear most of the shirts that fit( a few have shrunk). I have worn both bespoke, MTM, and rtw and the quality is consistently high. I changed Shirtmakers about a year ago because of a couple of bad bespoke orders. I also went to bespoke because they changed. Th cut of the shirt to be slimmer fitting. While they fit fine, I really loved the old style. I think you will really like their shirts.
