You're fine by me. Anyone know who makes CT shoes?

I am a big fan of CT shirts.  I also have several of their neckties, and one or two handkerchiefs.

Unfortunately, I cannot recommend the shoes.  Several years ago, CT had a "Buy something over 100 pounds, get the second item for 1 pound" offer.  I bought two pair of shoes, and returned them immediately. I think that the leather was (what I have since learned is called) bookbinder. The styling left much to be desired.

I have ordered shoes by Alfred Sargent, Trickers, and Alden.  My guess is that the CT shoes are made by Sargent or Loake, but are significantly down on the quality scale. In my opinion, CT shoes are not really a value, even at 50% off.

When I spoke to a salesman in the New York store, he said that the shoes were made by Loake, for what it's worth.

how are their shirts cut? Full, slim?
They are full, but not as full as Pink shirts.  They also sell a handful of slim fit shirts, which fit really nicely.  Too bad they don't make more of them.  Of course, a good tailor can always take the sides in for you.

Thanks, bic pentameter, for saving me from ordering these shoes and uttering many dactyls of despair ("Son of a bitch, I have bought the wrong shoes again.").  The CT medium brown oxfords looked good in the photo, and they were tempting me at $140.

Their normal shirts aren't anything special, similar to Thomas Pink (although I find that Tyrwhitt shirts fit better and they are significantly cheaper). However, the Super 120s shirts are very nice and a great bargain at $60.

I haven't seen the 180s shirts in person but I just ordered two as well - at under $100, it's hard to resist.

Has anyone tried the non-iron Tyrwhitt shirts? How about the fitted?

Bump for Andrew.

I have been happy with the two Sea Island shirts I have received from Charles Tyrwhitt, and will order more once I confirm that the shirts still fit after two washings.  For $60, it's a pretty good deal.
