    Well whatever. For Christ sake this is an online forum not a gentlemen's club. I shouldn't need have a disclaimer that what I write is my opinion on every post.

    I think Jantzen is shit, I wouldn't spend money on it, I would think people that do are silly for doing so but I'm sure others would feel the same way about spending on what I do for a demi-measure shirt. Oh well...doesn't affect my spending habits.


    Bolded for truth again?

    I used to have one. It didn't do any good.

    FANTASTIC kiton shirt-- a great illustration of why this is my favorite shirtmaker on the market.

    speed-- I'll be interested to hear your comments on the shirt's collar when you wear it. to me, it's the best shape and has very little to no 'tie space' at the top, which is important to me. collar is larger than most if not all my other shirts, yet looks perfect with a jacket and tie.

    I'm actually wearing this one (on the left) with a jacket/ no tie to brunch today:

    +1

    The buttons doe change color due to the lighting of the real pearl. I like that as well. [​IMG]

    I'm going to wash the first one a few times to see if there's much shrinkage. The collar is about 1/8" too big, but if it snugs up just a bit, it should fit fine. In any case, I'll post some pics in the next few days once it's been through a few washes.

    Yeah, replying to my own post...

    Today's entry in WAYWRN features one of them. After a few washings, the collar feels good as does most of the rest of the shirt, but it's still a bit roomy around the chest; which is probably just the way it's cut. The cuffs are definitely rather wide, I'll definitely take the shirts to my tailor to have the cuff button moved a bit, which should be sufficient; I might ask him if he can nip the body as well.

    Overall, I'm satisfied with the shirts at the Bluefly sale price, but I'm not sure if I would go for them again, mainly due to the slightly large fit. Now that I have a decent stable of shirts, I'll probably go MTM with my tailor and get a shirt that fits right from the start rather than OTR+altering.

    Sorry for the non-professionally folded shirt. The cuffs are single cuffs but require links.

    It's Mason Silverline 120s. It was $225, but that book has mostly run out. There is a new one coming soon (within a month they say), but no guarantees it will have all the same patterns. The price I think will be $240 for the new book.
