    That looks pretty good. I guess they would have to be white, with a thicker lined sole.

    Anyway, Click Frenzy has crashed :).

    I just picked up a cpl of the MJbale shirts from TMS, I was under the impression they did descent shirts and was almost going to grab 2 for the $100 but the discussion a couple of pages back seems to indicate their shirts aren't that good?

    Man, im kicking myself I missed out on the 20% code from Amazon was tired and thought no ill sign up the next day then buy those AE Daltons I've been eyeing off...nope expired >.<, oh well thats what laziness gets you.

    If you haven't watched it yet, the latest ep of Walking Dead last night was pretty good.

    Osiris - the shirts are great quality. I'm shorter than Michael Sy and I have to get sleeves taken up. It's just part of buying off the rack for me. I don't get bummed out by it, though. I've bought MJ Bale shirts and the quality is fantastic. Off the rack in australia, I'd say they are excellent, great quality, great price.

    Is MTM/bespoke better? Yeah. But these are $50 shirts + $20 in tailoring for someone like me - vs PJ's which are $250 a shirt. So again, it's about perspective. I wouldn't expect MJ Bale shirts to be better than MTM/bespoke.

    Thanks for that, yeah im not expecting them to be better than MTM/Bespoke just heard they were good for OTR which sounds like they are. which is kind of bad because now I might go give the 2 for $100 another look in and spend more $$ hehe.

    #clickfrenzy is trending on Twitter now, as is Davidjones, whose site also crawled along and joined the crash frenzy. [​IMG]

    Disappointing and hilarious in equal doses

    I walked into the Melbourne store with the sole intention of looking. After chatting to Tom for a good hour, I walked out with 3 shirts for $200!

    Doesn't it drive you nuts that you have to buy a shirt, take it to the tailor, wait for the tailor to alter it and pick it up at a later date? If you think about it, the $20 is an extra 40% on top of the price. That is quite substantial.

    The only OTR shirt that seems to have decent measurements aside from Tarocash et al, are the HC shirts. A 38cm neck with a 62cm sleeve is perfect. What sleeve length are you? Lacyhezee seems to have hit the mark with Luxire MTM, which appears very affordable for quality fabrics. Maybe he can elaborate on the difference in construction and fabric for the Bone/Bale shirts and his latest Luxire shirts.

    Oh Michael, I think we would be twins. 38/62 is all me. You're probably slimmer than me, seeing as how you posted about Tennis, though!

    I'm going down the Luxire road once I come back from the UK. Getting a shirt made up in the Row, and will use that as my basis for future measurements.

    My tailor is brilliant. She can do one our turn arounds, and she's cheap as chips and does a stellar job. Used to make suits, but basic alterations makes more money, and is easier, so that';s all she does now. But yes, it's a little frustrating not being able to get OTR that fits perfectly. But it's the same with suits - I always have to get the sleeves taken up, and the pants hemmed. It's just all part of it, I guess. I donno, it's a little frustrating, but I've kinda accepted that unless I buy only bespoke/MTM it's a fact of life.

    Like I said, the frustration will be less once I go MTM, which I assume you are too - so it's now only suits and pants that will need tailoring! ;)

    Nope, I know nothing about shirts, sorry. I owned a Herringbone shirt once, but I sold it because it was too small :satisfied:
