    Oh, and the customer service Chuck offers is worth another 40 bucks he doesn't charge.
    Oh yeah? Try to reach him before next Wednesday. Â [​IMG]
    Try reaching Turnbull and Asser before next July.

    We could probably issue you some sort of Style Forum warrant. I don't know if that'd give you license to blow off your customers, but it would be cool to stitch into the collar.

    I would appreciate that more. At least here you are measured by the quality of what you do rather than the year in which you were founded.

    I care as I ask.


    People of the forum often like stuffs I do not like. They are not "god talk" for me.

    I'm waiting on Chuck to do his MTM program. I'm ready to move up from Jantzen.

    Thanx for all the kind words about our shirts, as well as all your PMs to me regarding the loss of my mother this weekend. Just a brief reply to some of the technical questions, then I'll let Chuck fill in the details when he returns from Rome. In general, our plan is to do a MTM program ASAP, but we may continue to offer a limited selection of RTW. Stitch count: I think it was around 16-18 on the generation 1. Â We weren't pleased with that, but every time we've tried to increase that to the mid-twenties, the samples just didn't look right on that particular fabric, as Alex mentioned. Â On the next generation - if indeed we opt to do a second generation of RTW - we will get the tightest stitch appropriate for your fabric of choice. Collar: Believe it or not, the current collar was pretty conservative for Italian style when we made them. Â The next round will have a less dramatic collar, but will likely be point or semi-spread rather than spread. Retail presence: Â Soon. Â [​IMG] Size availability: Â Due to space constraints, we're unlikely to carry any atypical size combos in the immediate future. Â MTM program will be your best bet. Â It will only cost a little more than the RTW, but will take a bit longer to receive. But, for your cash and patience, you'll have a MUCH larger selection of fabrics, collar styles, cuff styles, etc. Hmm. Â Can't recall anything else right now, but wanted to acknowledge the questions since the company mouthpiece is most likely full of caprese e vino right now.

    Umm, its not about just saving a few extra pennies to give Mr. Kabbaz a call. You'd need to save $3600 since he charges $600/shirt with a minimum 6 shirt order.

    Seems like fit is not necessairly correlated with quality. Some brands will fit different people differently.

    I remember one of our larger members writing how well CF shirts fit him, and it made me doubt how well it would fit some of the smaller members here.
