Is Budd really considered that much better than H&K? Having owned a few H&K shirts, I really can't imagine what can be improved (save for a slightly trimmer fit, maybe). I don't think Budd are better than H&K. It's all a matter of preference I guess. I really like H&K shirts, especially their collars and cuffs. I do wish for two things; a thicker MOP button and and a slimmer cut at the waist.
