For $100, you can get a MTM shirt in NYC.
For me, ESF still needs tailoring.
I pay $10 for each shirt.

Wow $10 each total??? Yeah, my tailor charges $20 to move the placket on the sleeve. He can also do a hack job instead for $10. I need to find a new tailor I guess? He does a great job with my suits and jackets, which is why I usually go to him...

The spread was also disappointing; although the pics on the LE website seem to show a decent spread, in actuality it was a medium spread at best, probably just a little more than 90 degrees once buttoned-up.
Anyway, I know it's a matter of opinion, and maybe you'll be happy with the shirts/collars, but they certainly don't live up to the typical SF look of at least having long enough points to nicely hide behind jacket lapels. On a related note, LE recently did a seersucker dress shirt with what they call their cutaway collar. This looks much closer to the spread I typically like, and the points look longer, too. Now if only they'd do some of their "normal" dress shirts with this collar...

i have the same complaint. i've bought their dress shirts over the last 2 years, but it seems the collar issue is new. my previous shirts/orders didn't have that collar design. i'm assuming they recently updated the design.
