Not loving the Charles Tyrwhitt stuff I just got. The ties are significantly lower quality than I was expecting. One I was going to send back anyway for arriving wrinkled, but after handling it and looking closer, I'm sending both back because they just aren't very good. Quite light and cheap-feeling.
The shirts are going back because they just don't fit. I got slim-fit, and they're too tight. Not in the middle where the taper occurs - they're fine there - but in the shoulders and chest. Granted, I'm more athletically built than average, but we are talking about 17.5" neck shirts, which tend to run bigger. For comparison, the Jos A Bank tailored fit shirts are still pretty big on me and the Brooks Brothers Slim Fit shirts fit well, albeit still not particularly slim in the middle. These things, though... no chance . If I ever bent over to pick up something, I feel like the shirt would blow apart around my lats. It's a shame, because I thought I might be getting a good deal.
As for the shirt quality, you need a few wears and washes to really make a complete evaluation, but when trying these on, I definitely did not think that they measured up to the non-iron Brooks Brothers shirts I have. Also, the price is deceiving. After having the sleeves shortened (and, FWIW, Brooks Brothers and several other major shirtmakers offer the sleeve length I require on in-production shirts, and thus do not need tailoring), and adding a front pocket, the shirts are no longer such a deal, and I think it's inaccurate for some of the CT defenders in here to herald the "great value" of the shirt at $40 sale prices. If you want a front pocket, it's not a $40 shirt, and if you want shorter sleeves, the price goes even higher.
If you're of average-to-lanky build, I'd bet that you would not have my problem in the slim fit shirts. In fact, if you're skinny, you might complain that they are not slim enough in the middle. The ties aren't anything you can't get for $20 at Macy's though.
You seem like an odd person to fit, hence things like needing shorter sleeves and a wider shoulder/chest. CT offers down to a 34 sleeve length. If you have a 17.5 neck and less than a 34 sleeve, you are likely not a typical fit. This, however, is your problem and does not affect the wide cross section of folks with less unusual measurements. Furthermore, adding a pocket is something you chose to do. Most here do no like pockets on their dress shirts.
