Anyone have a shirt made from this stuff? The highest I have ever gone is 200s, and that feels incredibly silky and luxe. Can't even imagine what this stuff is like.

Comments on feel and durability would be appreciated.

I've had my hands on it; Paper thin, feels like silk, only comes in a few basics. The difference between DJA 200, 240, and 300 is definitely noticeable but not as dramatic as you might expect based on the numbers. I have several shirtings in the 200's; the fabric is very tightly woven and IMO doesn't breath very well. For me, they work best in cold weather. Ascot Chang has all the swatches if your in NYC and want to compare. IIRC, the cost for 300's was about $1500.

Thanks Taxler. $1,500 is too rich for me
