    If you can't work out the math to figure out if you are getting an acceptable deal or not, you deserve to fall for these tactics!!

    I hope they expand their Black Label / Modern Luxury line. A regular non-textured white (which isn't non-iron) would be great. Fabrics are nicer than the regular line and as long as the British Pound stays at $1.50 or so, t 2 for 80GBP comes out to about $60 per shirt which is well worth it IMO.


    100% agree.

    I think the issue that most have with their sales tactics is less the different types of "deals" they offer and more the inflated retail prices. CT is great for what it is, but people expecting a $160 shirt and thinking they are getting an amazing deal are going to feel misled.

    Just a heads up - got my order of new-season shirts in today. All non-iron slim fit. The shirt tails are now longer and they have an extra button now (8 instead of 7). Really happy with the order!

    Nice, I placed an order on Sunday for three shirts in their clearance section with the $20 off $75 code. Ended up being $29.xx per shirt before shipping and about $33 each shipped. Pretty good deal, is there a better value out there shirt maker wise?

    I've been wanting to try TM Lewin and probably will when they have a good sale going, otherwise I'll hold out until the next CT $39 shirt and tie deal.

    I've tried TML and was sorely disappointed. The fit is odd and the material quality isn't nearly as good. Fit and finish leaves something to be desired, and they really don't tend to be cheaper either.

    I actually prefer TM Lewin Fully Fitted over CT ESF shirts, mainly because they are (even) slimmer. The materials are not that bad as well.

    PSA alert. I saw an ad on the train this morning for Charles Tyrwhitt for 39.50 per shirt by going to www.ctshirts.com/FA84, and you can get free shipping by texting SHIRT to 33733. Worked out great for me. Just picked up two shirts (hairline stripe and a gingham) both in sky blue. Hope this helps you fellas.

    Your link is wrong. Get rid of the hyphen.

    Based on what I'm reading/see they don't slim down their sleeves at all from regular -> slim fit -> extra slim fit, not good.

    ugh, this is really starting to get old.

    If you want a shirt that is literally skin tight, go buy some h&m shit, shop in the boys section, or get the bloody thing made to measure.

    These are business shirts and RTW at that. If you are stupid skinny and you want this skin tight bullshit, you need to tailor your shirts and quit whining.

    Really? Do you own any of these shirts for a comparison? I have a few extra-slim fit, and the sleeves seem fine on me, at least. They don't seem disproportionally large and billowy.
