I bought one of the Hathaway Platinum shirts for $20 to try. I've only washed it once, so I can't say how durable they are. I'd say they are equivalent to a $150 shirt, but isn't in the same league as the Italian $200+ stuff. They are a deal at the price.

The Kirkland Signature branded shirts are nice as well for $15 to $20. But I would say the Hathaway Platinum (not the regular) shirts have better material, and are the best dress shirts that Costco sells.

I think Ask Andy or maybe Jcusey has endorsed the Kirkland dress shirts. He didn't mean the Hathaways though. Maybe the Hathaways are a more recent product.

They are a little poofy though. Box pleats, pockets, and usually button collar from what I remember.

Can you guys post the item number from the receipt, so I could call couple of store around me to see if they have them in stock.

Sure, it's Item #272871 listed simply as "Shoe Tree" at $19.99 for two pair.

You cannot believe this deal! Only available, as you know, in 8 to 11. $10.00 per pair.

I sat back on this thread but wanted to share my views.

Those are awesome for the price. If anyone from NYC area is interested, Yonkers Costco seems to be all out, New Rochelle still has a big pallet.

I've only tried them in a pair of old RL loafers in an 11D that I had sitting with no trees. When sitting unsprung next to the Nord Rack trees I normally use these are much shorter, but the spring also just doesn't need to compress as much as the Rack trees to fit in the shoe. The toe is still shorter, but they are high enough across the vamp to take out the creasing. If you're looking for something that's going to fill the whole toebox on a bigger shoes, these won't do it. Since my shoes don't wrinkle there, they seem to work just fine for me.

Most of my shoes are 8.5 - 9 and these are a really tight fit. In fact, they would not fit a pair of 9 C ae bradleys that I have but they worked in other 9D AE although they were fully compressed.

They are nice. I just picked up 6 pairs. Only complaint is the brass nobs are kinda cheap and are simply threaded into the tree. I could see potential stripping issue in the future. Would be nice if there was a threaded insert in the tree, but for $10 cant complain.

BTW it took me an hour to find them. Most employees did not know where they were either. You would think they would be by the clothing and shoes but no, they were placed in the housewares area, and were tagged incorrectly at $23.00 but scanned at $20.00.
