1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Hi,
    It is used, but lightly. There is no wear or damage to the item, and it has been professionally dry cleaned.

    Size: 16.5" Collar

    All info on the item can be found by clicking any of the hyperlinked images.

    Thanks,
    John

    collars a bit big for me, nice pattern and the thick MOP buttons and collar and cuffs remind me of barba gold label.

    I've never seen an Etro shirt with MOP buttons (and I own a few). Quality is really nowhere near Barba to be honest

    Really? Both Etro shirts I own have really thick MOP buttons - just as thick as Borrelli's. I have seen Etro shirts with thinner shell buttons, though.

    Agreed that the quality isn't at Barba's level, but it is still fairly decent.

    Simply meant the look in the pic, the cut, handstitching and I'm sure the fabric quality is of course nowhere near...

    I've never seen an Etro shirt at NMLC for that price. As a matter of fact, the Etro outlet store at Woodbury, whenever they have big sales, the only thing they refuse to discount are their shirts which run about $125-150. Now whether you think the shirt is worth no more than $30 is a different matter.

    You're a lucky man. I've never seen an Etro shirt with MOP buttons. Thick, yes. MOP, no. Never seen one at the flagship store in NYC. Was just in Italy 3 weeks ago and bought 2 shirts there. All plastic buttons... [​IMG]

    The NMLC @ Primm near Las Vegas had a huge rack of these shirts for that price in August, I actually bought a couple of the more conservative ones, one in white with blue stripes and another in white with grey stripes.

    I must admit, my camera was straining to get the colours right on this shirt. I must say (with the item here in front of me), the quality is up there with some of the more premium brands.

    I had a couple of ebay offers for this shirt, but i decided to hold onto it, as it was driving a lot of traffic! Will still take a good offer on it though. I think the price it worth it compared to some of the crap on ebay!

    Have enjoyed reading the discussion on this thread.

    John.

    Maybe my shirts have Trocas buttons, or whatever the MOP substitute is.
