    I've been generally pleased. Shirts and ties from them tend to be good, and I'll agree with the tent-vs-kinda-slim-fit comments above.

    Beware the made-in-china stuff, though. It can be hard to tell sometimes, but if the item was made anywhere half-decent (England, Italy, &c) they'll mention it.

    I think some of the styles ct has are certainly interesting, but they are certainly only worth picking up on sale... especially with their 140s.

    I think their poplin slim fits are worth 50 bucks each. Mine have lasted 3 years so far. The "calf leather" shoes were a good deal for $150 as well.

    Despite what Flussers says, I don't see a gauntlet button being the mark of a well made shirt. Except for the shirts I buy from BB, I have MTM shirts made without that bothersome button. Unless the gauntlet is especially long I don't see the need for the button.

    Cheers, Jim.

    I think the shirts are ok if you can find them for under $50, but the fabric on the regular shirts is really not great and it shrinks in the wash!!! And Yes, I know how to wash my shirts so don't say anything in regard to that.

    They have probably the best priced sale items with plenty of styles. I always try to drop by their NYC store however I find that e shirts shrink a little bit at the sleeves.

    Thanks. Are they comparable to AE in quality?

    I think the consensus is that if they're built to Loake 1880 standards, then it's better than AE.

    Thanks. I've found plenty of other nice-looking cap toes, but none that I could try on before ordering, at least in the AE price range. I'll stop by the CT store tomorrow and see what they have. I have a pair of shoes in their lower end line, but I don't know how they compare to the luxury calf line.

    CT jodhpur boots and the one jacket I tried aren't as good as elsewhere, where prices are higher. I wouldn't buy a shirt without gauntlet buttons/buttonholes. I did buy two informal shirts from CT - they are tough, but not high quality. CT refused to add gauntlet buttons/buttonholes, but the shirt sleeve alteration to a shorter length was perfect. Most CT articles I've encountered aren't made in UK. I am convinced those who are able to shop at the stores have a huge advantage which purely online shoppers don't. Photographs and descriptions are not the reality of the item in question.
