Regarding the BB shirt, why would they only have a sleeve of 34" in a 14.5 neck? That seems like the "long" version of that shirt.
As for the non-iron fabric, I have heard similar things: if you do any kind of alterations on them, the seams may pucker, due to the non-iron coating on the fabric. There is a debate about this, as some experienced no issues and some have.
hm, interesting about the no-iron fabric, and thank you for the response. i didn't think about a coating on the fabric from the manufacturer. i guess it's something to think about.
anyways, regarding the price points, you're probably right, and i did do research on the forum prior and had read that thomas pink in particular was over priced, and that MTM would probably be a better option. however,i live in Canada, in northern Ontario, unless there's a MTM dress shirt service online, (that is of decent quality) i'm unable to go into a store and get measured.... not that i need to be measured, i know all my measurements, but still, it seems to me like most quality mtm dress shirt shops do not offer the service online, and require bookings in-store.
i *am* in toronto every 3-4 months mind you, but i don't know the city well enough to know which shops would offer that service.
as for the 34" sleeve length, i can't say, perhaps it is a graduated sleeve length, regardless , shortening a sleeve is no big deal.
