• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Anyone have photos of a TM Lewin shirt being worn in the wild?

I can't tell from the pics on the website if the collar looks good.
Anyone have pics of them wearing the shirts?

How is overall quality?

Yes, I did a search.

I've got some Lewin shirts. They have some nice materials, and the fit is fine for me.

About the collars: I like both medium and spread. The problem I have with some Lewin
shirts is the points: they don't keep their shape during use. They seem to bend in an
irritating way.

For the price, I suppose they're OK, but I'm not sure that I'll rush to buy more.

Similar experience here. Not bad, great price, but nothing I'd rush to buy more of. In my experience fabric is inferior to Jantzen, at the same price. And fit obviously worse since it isn't made to my measurements.

Don't have any pics, sorry. If you're dying for it I can try to take some.

Sorry, no pics but I have about a dozen of them, all French Cuff, medium spread: solids, including white and blue (herringbone, poplin and broadcloth) and gingham and I think they have performed very well. I have always bought them on sale and I benefit from the fact that I am an 18" neck and can wear a 36" inch sleeve in the French Cuffs because the bulk of the cuff prevents it from protruding too far (I am ideally a 34"). I think I got them for around 4 for $100 or so plus about $35 shipping and I liked the white ones so much I ordered 4 more at a time. I will say that my original 17.5's used to fit but do not any longer--I definitely think there was some shrinkage there as I have not gained weight. So I have relegated the 17.5's to open collar and wear the 18's with a tie. I also bought two sportcoats and a top coat from them. Very good deals at the time; however, the sport coats ran typically British small: I needed a 46 instead of a 44 (which fit like a 42 so I gave it to my son.) The top coat was and still is fine. Also bought about 4 pairs of shoes from them but I don't know if they sell shoes anymore. Since I had so much of their stuff and am overloaded in general, I have not shopped their site in well over a year, so I don't know what kinds of deals they are offering.

The standard rather half arsed spread collar whose points are not long enough is not fantastic IMO though fine. The Windsor collar on the other hand is actually rather good with its wider spread and longer points, and for the price it simply cannot be beaten.

I am wearing a Lewin shirt with a Windsor collar in my posting today in WAYWRN, and yes, the collar has longer points (fits nicely under my waistcoat). Depending on the fabrication, some Lewin shirts are excellent value for the money, others not so much - sometimes it is a roll of the sartorial dice . . . .
