Any opinions on these jackets?

They seem like nice summer casual jackets. I don't own any CT jackets so I don't know anything about their jacket fits or quality.

Posted this in a different thread but just came across this one and think it is more appropriate.

 

***Cliff's note version***

6' 210lbs.

Ordered the slim fit 17-35.

Neck perfect

Chest a tiny bit tight - 3rd button pulling when completely straight*

Sleeves are 1/2"-3/4" short

Biggest issue: excess material at waist bunching up *above* belt, and I'm unable to pull it across waist and to back. I don't know if its an issue with the material or the fit. Don't have this issue with any of my other slim fit shirts- weird.

 

*checked my other shirts and realized this to be the case with some others, so probably fine.

 

I did also receive 1 extra slim fit and find that it fits *exactly* the same in the chest as the slim- did I get old stock?

 

My question is should I try the slim in 17.5-35 or 17-36? And how the heck do I get around this weird bunching above the belt?

 

TIA

just an fyi for anyone wanting to purchase these shirts.  I have purchased 10 of these of the last couple of years and have now thrown 4 out due to collar fraying.  And perhaps I used each shirt a maximum of 8-10 times over that period.

 

I was so fed up I finally reached out to customer service with the photo below of the most recent collar fraying and they responded saying thank you and they will let quality control know.  No other followup as to why or if similar complaints had come in.

 

I have other shirts that have lasted for years but now I will not purchase from TYRWHITT any longer.  It is just unacceptable.

 

Wish I could find a good collar guy.

Do you usually wear the shirt with the collar buttoned (like when you're wearing a time)? Does your neck press up against and spill over the top edge of the collar?

Yes collar buttoned with a tie.  But typical of other shirts I have had without this same issue.  This has occurred with 4 of the 10 shirts I have ordered from CT and the other 6 seem to be fine

Fair enough. Sorry to hear of the QC issues.

I had thought perhaps it is a sizing issue. If it's tight on your neck and your skin comes out over the edge of the collar and rubs against it, combined with sweat and oil, I can see it wearing that edge down. Perhaps one collar size up would resolve it.

If anyone's shopping, CT is having one of their $29 shirt sales (5 max). Use code "SAXON." The cart page will give you an error and a link. Click on the link and you should be good to go.

This is on the US site? I go to the cart, and it says an offer (free shipping w/in USA) already applied and fades the field so that I can't type anything...?

Is it cheaper to buy CT shirt in the US or in London?

post #490 of 490

Tried buying from the US site with the code "SAXON". Does not work. Anyone have a valid code to share?

 

Thanks.
