I haven't received the 17" neck JAB shirts I mentioned above - but they should be here at the end of this week. I have a feeling I will probably return them. At the end of the day, I have to decide what I'd prefer - a stylish, exceptional fitting dress shirt for $95, or a not-as-good fitting, less stylish dress shirt with a hideous breast pocket from JAB for $46. I hate breast pockets on shirts. While I'm not elated with the quality of BOSS, they seem to do the job, and I've developed a feeling for which material they use that I prefer to stay away from, and which seem to hold up a little better. I've explored a lot of options, and if there was a readily available, better quality shirt at this price that fit me as well and achieved the styling I desire, I'd already be buying it.
I have a feeling that the JAB shirts are going to arrive and be much too big - as the 16.5" neck was pushing it already in terms of extra fabric where there shouldn't be extra fabric (not sure how JAB are calling these "slim" fit). I also have to consider the fact that, while okay for work, the JAB shirt would be completely useless to me outside of a work setting, where the BOSS shirt is much more versatile, albeit twice the price. To summarize, in the most literal sense, the only thing the JAB shirt has going for it is the price.
