from Chuck or Jill as to when to expect their shirts? I ordered mine and paid in September. Jill updated me about 3 weeks ago saying that I should get them around 4-21-06. Still no shirts. I asked for another update last week, but no reply. I hope this means they are busy sending them.

Bach - I will send out an update. As previously reported yes, we have had incredibly long delays on this and eventually scrapped the tailor I was usung and took the entire order to a bespoke maker for completion at about 3 times the production cost we anticipated. They are being completed now and I expect them at the end of next week. At first we expected him to have everything wrapped up in 3 weeks and it is a bit longer - like 6 because they don't do this sort of volume typically.

If you want the shirt refunded I will eat it, refund your purchase and then resell it.

As promised, we'll be making a nice gift with the shirts after all of the delays on this but I decided to take a huge loss on this order to get it perfect rather than rush it and deliver crap. Taking a loss I can shrug off, delivering crap is not an option on this. I am sorry for the delay and sorry if I have not sufficiently explained why it is taking so long.

I'm headed over shortly to oversee the final inspection and all should be fine. In the end they will be exceptional and I'll eat a loss on it - I am fine with that.

Wow Chuck, sounds like things are typically Italian over there. It's been a long time since we've had a "Chuck on Shirts" treatise. Looking forward to seeing how these new ones turn out!

Will there be shirts available for purchase, or must you have pre-ordered?
I love that pink one!

Chuck: Not looking for a refund. Just anxious to get the shirts. Sort of "foaming at the mouth."

Typically Italian?! Hey! Chuck and I are Italian! And, we know your shoe size!


Seriously though, when I went there, I didn't have a problem with slowness. In fact, the trains left exactly when scheduled and arrived right on time.

I've got a vowel on the end of my name too--I've just embraced my proud heritage of great clothes, langourous lunches, and late shirts

I've heard certain Italians in the past made that a high priority.

Just to chime in again as a FRIEND (yes, Chuck, a friend) and not a MODERATOR, the Italians are almost impossible to deal with if you are a small volume operation.

We discovered this at Kenyon Ridge and went elsewhere.

Hopefully my comments are not the kiss of death for you Charles. People here seem to get all hot and bothered when I stick up for our own merchants...

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
