    I've had the undershirt (size S) for some time now and can say that it has held up well! I normally wear somewhere around EU 46 in jackets, to give you an idea on size. Color works well under light shirts and the scoop neck, while strange at first, is appropriate to wear when you're not wearing a tie.

    It hasn't misshapen and still feels like new. The "non-seam seams" are still intact. It has never seen a dryer, nor have my other shirts, and that is probably for the best.

    The only thing I'd have to say is that it tends to ride up when the shirt is untucked. I have worn it almost exclusively with tucked-in shirts and it's been brilliant (no bunching, coming untucked with normal movements, etc.). I'll also say I haven't seen it stretch in weird places like I have with normal cotton undershirts.

    I'd happily replace all of my undershirts with these!

    So i received this shirt from GIIN about 5 weeks ago, and wanted to wait until I wore it a few times before giving it a review.
    Before I start, just wanted to acknowledge how great Jen has been with communication and size recommendation.

    Initial reaction when receiving the package: I was thoroughly impressed with the packaging of the shirt. Came in a nice box with the company emblem embossed in the packaging.
    Initial reaction of the shirt is that it's very soft, and the deep plunge of the collar is great since i don't always wear a tie. Definitely different than any of the typical white undershirts that I wear.

    With that said, I'll call this shirt "Solutions to issues I didn't know existed"

    The shirt is soft, form fitting,and is great under a dress shirt.
    I've washed it a couple of times now and it's remained as soft as the first day I got it. It does not lose it's shape, and does not ride up or bunch, so it's comfortable to wear all day.
    In contrast, I wore one of my regular white undershirts the next day: suddenly i noticed a twist, or when it bunched up, or when it would ride up. I found myself making adjustments that I subconsciously made in the past, however now I was noticing.

    Honest initial reaction (before receiving the shirt): "it's just an undershirt. It's probably comfy, but what's the big deal?"
    After owning it, it really does make a big difference vs. the regular shirts I was wearing. This is officially my "formal" undershirt.

    Thanks again to GIIN!

    Our handmade boutonnière in Lavender

    All of our boutonnières are made from miniature roses. The creation process involves our artisan carefully picking petals off each flower and putting them back together in the likeness of a rose.

    The roses have been treated with a revolutionary technology, patented by our artisan in Japan to maintain their delicate, life-like appearance for years to come.

    Available in eight exquisite colours

    I guess I'm the few lucky ones to get my hands on these beauties before they were officially launched. Thanks guys!!
    THESE ARE INCREDIBLE, specially after I learned how they are made!! These are art pieces if you ask me.
    I have 4 colours so far, and I intend to collect all 8.

    @Fashionsense, glad you like our boutonnières. And yes, they are quite special, not a bad idea to collect them all! Do take more photos of them and share away!

    Cheers,

    I did order one of these but I would have preferred to know a bit more about how they are made before dropping a Benjamin on one. What does "treated with a revolutionary technology" mean? Is it a real flower, preserved in some way? Does that mean each one is different? Or is it something else? The website is no help. Company may well make a great product (mine hasn't arrived yet) but they definitely need some help in the copywriting department.

    Thank you @maxalex for your business, questions, and comments.

    Our boutonnières are made from natural miniature roses. The creation process involves removing the rose petals and the petals are then treated to maintain their colour and fresh appearance. The solutions used in this preservation process and the process itself have been patented in Japan. Our artisan then puts the petals back together in their final form. Due to the handmade nature of this product, each piece may vary slightly in shape, size, and colour.

    Should you have any other question, please don't hesitate to ask.
    Your boutonnière is on its way!

    Best Regards,
    Jen

    Thanks Jen, that is great information, and I'm looking forward to receiving my boutonniere. I'm guessing other customers would be intrigued by the process. I'm generally reluctant to tell other people how to run their business, but I will say that my wife is an online retailer of handmade wooden toys, and when she posts information (and videos) about the manufacturing process her sales really spike.
