    So my wardrobe was 90% Lewin 10% H&C. Always preferred Lewin but bought a few H&C on a typical 5 for £100 sale.

    Recently Harvie & Hudson had some sale shirts at £20 (maybe just short of $30 USD??)

    Bought 2 as a trial to see how they compared to Lewin and whether the full price of £55 is worth it.
    (Let's be honest, Lewin never has full price shirts they are £25 max on multibuy)

    Wow. I'm converted!!
    The softness of the cotton is amazing.
    Ordered 3 more already.

    The fit is great. (I have a fat neck so 16/33 is size)

    Will definitely be buying more but that's not taking anything away from Lewin as for the price I think they are fantastic quality but there is definitely a difference in feel. (Maybe not in look to other people though)

    Does anyone else see the price difference worth it or is it too close to call? Is 5 for £100 too good a deal to pass up??

    Also, has anyone had experience with the White Label shirts from Lewin? Think they are £70+ and are 120/140/160 and 180's.
    Are they worth the money? They were not in store where I live and only available on line so I can't feel the difference??

    I own a White Label shirt from Lewin (as well as some of their "regular" shirts and several shirts from CT). I don't think the White Label shirt is worth the money, but then again I think shirts are a (mostly) disposable garment. It is definitely a very nice shirt, and it has a nicer drape than my other Lewin shirts; I think the one I have is 130s. I don't have any experience with fancier shirts from higher-end makers (I do have a Suit Supply shirt, and while it was significantly more expensive than my Lewin/CT shirts, it's pretty much identical in quality), since I basically refuse to spend more than Lewin/CT cost.

    A question for you: how does the H&H compare fit-wise to the Lewin (and specifically which fit). How about compared to CT?

    No experience with Lewin, but if you like softness
    especially in the collar, then try Hilditch &Key.
    Their semi annual sale just ended. The next one
    should be in June.
