Since I am not 100% satisfied,I was wondering if the boards potentially could be replaced?
Sorry, have never heard of boards on a shirt, but English is not my first language. Or are you referring to the collar? Simone has something like 20-30 different collars to chose from so it should not be a problem finding a collar that fits your style.
To have the collars/cuffs changed you need to ask for extra ones being made up when you order the shirt. I don't think it will be worth the cost to have them replaced by a different maker (if he can even find the exact same cloth) or by Simone. Abbarchi shirts are relalively inexpensive, for this price range I wonder if it would be worth it.
I have about a dozen shirts from Simone, I'm very happy with them, given the price range (about €110-130). It's not a fancy shirt with hand sewn details, but it's a good value, well fitting shirt.Edited by Leaves - 12/25/14 at 10:20am
