i'll post pics sometime tonight or tomorrow. first i have to say the fabric is soft and beautiful. i went with a check pattern by sictess (s52) for 95 euros. the fit is excellent and the stitching looks good, though not as small as some others. double needle stitching on side seams. the fit on the cuffs is the best of any shirt i own. it's more snug than i am used to, but it looks and feels great. also, the collar does not have removable stays, but some of the other models do. the MOP buttons are a little smaller than the norm. 2 gripes: they make no effort at pattern matching on any seams. also, the website order form asks you to input your neck size, but the shirt i recieved used the my neck size as the collar size. in other words, though my neck measures about 15.5", i require a shirt size of 16.5. the shirt i recieved is a size 39 (15.5) i e-mailed margutti to explain the problem with the hope that they would replace the collar if i sent it back, and that they would cover the shipping on this. i did explain the misunderstanding and suggested they should change their website. i got a response a little while ago saying basically, 'you asked for a 39 and i made a 39. send it back if you want.' there are 3 pics in 3 different albums.
