    I was thinking about doing the same thing.

    As far as I can remember I've only ever gotten their top line fabrics. Their customer service is great, it's nice to chat with Rikky. Fit was very close the first time through (my right shoulder is very sloped compared to my left) but the adjustments were quick and have been good since. I've only had one shirt lose a bunch of buttons (and I have 7).

    I'm going to order some of their more premium fabrics (Monti/Thomas Mason) my next time through (if I don't try something else).

    My first post here. A Colorado contributor. These are all 3 creations by Oscar Udeshi of London. From the left is a 170's Italian cotton, 240's Alumo and finally 120's Alumo in a pale lilac.

    Even with the color totally out of whack, those are some nice shirts; especially for a first post. You're a fan of turned back cuffs, eh? ps - Welcome to StyleForum!

    Thanks Razl! I started with a solid blue that had the turnback cuffs and I really enjoy them. They are so unique. I blame the whack color on trying to compensate for cellphone camera quality. I will use a real camera whenever possible. I wish the shirts were still show-folded so I could get a better picture. This photo does not do these shirts justice!.

    Thanks for the shirt compliments. Hopefully here in a few weeks a couple more will arrive and I can search for the light. Redemption will be had in the form of folded shirts.

    Do you like shirts with white cuffs and collar? Me neither, but due to my mistake when ordering, I am now stuck with a bunch. Give me a reality check; how bad is it?

    White cuffs and collar with a white body and sleeves are not too bad ;)

    Kidding aside, I like that 1980s power look at times, blue or blue/white striped shirt with white cuffs&collar.

    I love the look, as you can have a slightly bolder stripe or check on the body, but it won't overwhelm your tie...

    I love the look but it's an occasional one, not an every day one. So it's only bad if your existing rotation isn't large enough to absorb these so that you're only wearing them, at most, once every 10 days or so. At least, that'd be my yardstick. Even at that pace I'd worry that it might still attach a bit too firmly to others as your "look"; but whether you want that or not is up to you.

    Still, the stack of shirts looks nice :slayer:

    Many thanks for all the responses. Truth be told, I probably have to agree with NOBD ('burn 'm!"). That said, they just fit too well to get rid of them altogether - two of them are white anyways - that I may just leave them in my closet and take them out for a perhaps occasional wear. If I were to take that approach, I may find myself in good company:

    As long as I avoid this look:

    A bit of experimentation with the collar. Yes, it is Brooks RTW but I enjoy it quite well.
