I bought some PF shirts for the following reasons: 1. They have a great range of sleeve sizes so I was able to avoid paying to shorten the sleeve, which costs me 9 to 15 bucks on other RTW shirts. I could get exactly the sleeve size I wanted. 2. I wanted the front ? placquet ? to be "French" style, or whatever it's called, meaning a smooth front. This, and the "European collar" PF sells, would give me a shirt that looked less like an American style shirt and more like an Italian or French one. It would go better with Italian suits. 3. Sometimes, there were incredible sales, like $17 for a shirt. I bought their shirts for a few years, and have not for the past few years. They're just not that exciting to wear, and in the end they don't really look like European shirts, just American ones with some adjustments. However, if you want an American shirt, it's a good product for the money. The rest of their clothing (ties, tops, slacks, suits, shoes) never appealed to me in terms of design.
