It's now been worn dozens of times, and is holding up really well..
Today I'm wearing it yet again with Naked and Famous Cashmere stretch jeans:
I have to give CT a great thumbs up for the ESF shirts. They were just what I needed, armholes cut a bit higher and a good fit around the body. Could have been a littler slimmer and the cuffs are just a little too wide but the overall impression is very good.
They will definately be making up the base of my wardrobe
Received my first CT shirts today. The quality of the shirts is OK - altho the fabric seems to be a bit too thin for my taste. The fit is good with me (6'2, 210, and consider myself to be rather athletic) -both across the chest and in the waist; maybe I will dart them in the future. The 36" sleeves are also good.
However, one thing that I do not like too much - the collar. I ordered size 16, same as all my other shirts (TML). First, I don't particularly like the stiffness of the collar, due to it being fused. I much rather prefer the TML collars, that are considerably softer and more comfortable (unfused). Second, the CT collars are not as tall as those of TML. Third, the CT collars fit a bit more loose than the TML, maybe due to them being fused.
I will not return the current order, as I'm generally OK with it, however in the future I do not see myself buying any more CT shirts. One huge advantage that the CT shirts have over the TML, however, is that they offer both cuff options for any shirt - button cuff and the french cuff. Apart from that, I would say that TML is better.
