    Any Australian sf members here? What do you think of the quality/value of Herringbone shirts as a rtw option? Compared to say, other rtw options around the $A150-250 price range? Herringbone Sydney

    These look good value.

    All their cotton is 100/120 2 ply Egyptian cotton. This is better than many of the MTM shirtmakers in Sydney.

    It's a decent shirt for the price. They have some on sale (A$360 for 3) right now and that represents good value. The pattern matches on the split yoke (cut on a bias) on my two shirts but don't match 100% on the sleeves but it appears they did try. IMHO, that's above average for RTW. Fabrics are of high quality. Fit is on the slim side for RTW. They are, however, made in less developed countries like Pakistan but have held up well. Another shirtmaker to consider is Baubridge and Kay (around A$170 from www.bkay.com.au). They make good ties, too.

    I have a couple and prefer Rodd and Gunn at that price. Collars are very nice though.
