Harvie And Hudson shirts

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am going to be buying some harvie and hudson shirts, which is pretty much a sure thing now. I was just curious if they were two-ply and what is the thread count on them? I can't seem to find any info on there website.

No idea on the technical matters, but I have a number of their shirts, and I think they are superb for the price. Sadly no gusset, but thay have the stiffest cuffs I have seen, and come in 3 sleeve lengths off the peg. Well worth the £40 approx they can be had for.

The shirts H&H had made for me had collars that felt as though they were made of cardboard. Still, a nice family-run firm. Used to travel to NY with Foster's shoes and with a bespoke tailor called John Lester, a refugee from Huntsman who made a distinct impression on me for conspicuously wearing his suit sleeves about 3 inches too high, and displaying his flamboyant cuff links. Quite the spectacle. Grayson

Keep an eye out for H&H shirts on EBay. They aren't a big name like Turnbull, so they seem to fly under the radar. I've seen many brand new w/tags H&H shirts sell on EBay for under $35/shirt. I haven't bought any as I don't care for the collar shape from what I can see, though I'm sure they are very nice shirts.

I've a half dozen of their RTW shirts. They are very well made for the price (£40 on sale) but occasionally inconsistent. While the shirts normally sport fine MOP buttons, one of the six shirts came with plastic buttons. I cannot explain this. I find the fabrics they use to be of high quality. I don't know the thread count but it would have to be 2x2 100's at a minimum. Their shirting fabrics are far superior to those used by the discount shirt stores on Jermyn Street. Their french cuffs are very stiff while their button cuffs are very soft. Both are well cut and fit well. I enjoy the shape of their collar (the windsor?) very much. It is a classic semi-spread that is not extreme in any way. Also, it stands up well when wearing the shirt without a tie. At that price, I find them hard to beat in terms of value.
