I only have plain or small-check shirts from Harvie and Hudson, so I can't comment on the sleeve pattern-matching. I will, however, say that they are lovely shirts - I prefer them to either TM Lewin or Charles Tyrwhitt. I don't have any Thomas Pink shirts, but from what I hear about Pink shirts on this and other fora, I'm sure that they're nicer than Pink, too. I particularly like the collar on my H&H shirts - I find both TM Lewin and Tyrwhitt collars to be a bit too stiff - so stiff, in fact, that they hardly need collar stiffeners. However, H&H collars are very nicely shaped (in my opinion) and are not too soft, not too stiff - a pleasant balance. I take a 16.5 collar in both Lewin and Tyrwhitt, and find H&H to be consistent with my sizing. I haven't noticed any shrinkage issues with any of the three brands, but then I wash my shirts at home in lukewarm water, rather than sending them out to a commercial laundry. I'm seriously thinking of getting one of their bengal stripe shirts with the white collar and cuffs. I wouldn't mind getting another couple of shirts at the same time, so the "three shirts or more for UK30 each" is an attractive offer, particularly considering quality and the fact that the shirts are allegedly made in the UK.
