Interesting. I had that problem with Paris. What made it worse was that in every instance, they denied the mistake and refused to rectify it.
I have yet to have even one thing go wrong with Geneva. The main drawback to Geneva is that you have work through a few shirts to get the pattern right, and you pay for those shirts. With AK, such is not the case -- yet his price point is still so much higher (more like 3-4 times) that even eating few Geneva shirts turns out to be cheaper, even in the short run. That said, even my first shirt from Geneva was wearable; but the fit is noticeably inferior to what they make for me now. And my first Geneva shirt fit better than my last Paris shirt. My latest Geneva shirts fit about 85-90% as well as my Kabbaz shirts. There are certain small kinks that I think they just don't know how to work out. Oh well.
