    The quality of the promotion shirts is awful. I actually did this two weeks ago. White shirt and lilac tie... shipping is $10 so $50 total.

    I'm giving up on CT. They always have these sales but their quality is garbage, regardless of the price. I've always wanted their 180s shirt and I see that it is on sale for $129. I may check out the Madison store to check the quality but I've had a bad experience buying 5 shirts from there. My mistake for keeping to order from their website... the shirts look great in the pics but you will be disappointed when you receive them.

    The Black Label shirts, which are made by a decent London shirtmaker, are good - they are the only ones I will buy from CT, but unfortunately they always have a very limited range. Their ordinary shirts are okay but nothing special.

    Agree. The black label is nicer. Have you tried TML white label? How do they compare?

    Got in on this deal when it ran last month. Still waiting on the shirt (backordered) so can't comment there, but the tie was a nice surprise. Ya know, for free anyway.

    bullshit.

    Their quality is on par, if not higher, than other shirts available for $40. Some argue that TML makes a better shirt, some say CT is better, but the point is that they make a fine shirt for the price. If you want poor quality for the price, look no further than thomas pink.

    now then, I like CT for their wide range of tailored/extra slim fit non-iron shirts. I find the non-iron fabric to breath nicely, feel good, and hold up well. The quality of the assembly seems fine to me, no issues after countless wears.

    For $40, I'd love to see what you think is better.

    I hope the quality is on par with my BB Egyptian cotton shirts in the same price range that I have...

    Thanks

    The ties are mediocre. Not bad but nothing special. The shirt alone is a decent value for $40, so if they're giving you a shirt and a tie, then it's not a bad way to get a few more ties in the collection if you're just starting out. Then again, my Hobers have sent my expectations for ties through the roof.

    Did you get them from BB's website for this price? You do know that finding them on EBay or this forums market place wouldn't count in this comparison.

    Not loving the Charles Tyrwhitt stuff I just got. The ties are significantly lower quality than I was expecting. One I was going to send back anyway for arriving wrinkled, but after handling it and looking closer, I'm sending both back because they just aren't very good. Quite light and cheap-feeling.

    The shirts are going back because they just don't fit. I got slim-fit, and they're too tight. Not in the middle where the taper occurs - they're fine there - but in the shoulders and chest. Granted, I'm more athletically built than average, but we are talking about 17.5" neck shirts, which tend to run bigger. For comparison, the Jos A Bank tailored fit shirts are still pretty big on me and the Brooks Brothers Slim Fit shirts fit well, albeit still not particularly slim in the middle. These things, though... no chance . If I ever bent over to pick up something, I feel like the shirt would blow apart around my lats. It's a shame, because I thought I might be getting a good deal.

    As for the shirt quality, you need a few wears and washes to really make a complete evaluation, but when trying these on, I definitely did not think that they measured up to the non-iron Brooks Brothers shirts I have. Also, the price is deceiving. After having the sleeves shortened (and, FWIW, Brooks Brothers and several other major shirtmakers offer the sleeve length I require on in-production shirts, and thus do not need tailoring), and adding a front pocket, the shirts are no longer such a deal, and I think it's inaccurate for some of the CT defenders in here to herald the "great value" of the shirt at $40 sale prices. If you want a front pocket, it's not a $40 shirt, and if you want shorter sleeves, the price goes even higher.

    If you're of average-to-lanky build, I'd bet that you would not have my problem in the slim fit shirts. In fact, if you're skinny, you might complain that they are not slim enough in the middle. The ties aren't anything you can't get for $20 at Macy's though.

    I'm confused by the shorter sleeves comment. Are your arms that short that CT does not make shirts with your arm length? And, for what it's worth, no one held a gun to your head and told you that you had to order a front pocket, so quit bitching about that additional charge. Agree with you on the fit difference between CT Slimt fit and BB Slim fit, though. If they were any smaller in the chest and shoulders, I wouldn't be able to wear the CT slim fit shirts whereas I have no similar issue with BB slim fit.
