No, you didn't.
The feel of his shirts when I put them on are unequalled, as is the shaping of the collar, by any other shirt that I have.
This is one of those situations where it would be good to be English and not know or care that shirts can be sewn together at much higher standards.
You predicted my comparative experience, though.
Box arrived yesterday. Wearing one today. Nice to have a stock refresh. I think I will take these and BB OCBDs to Rome next week rather than my NSM shirts. I don't want to look like a Neapolitan hick.
