    I'd be interested just to know what 200/4 ply feels like. Does anyone have experience with these shirts?

    Yes, they are really good, top quality, very soft fabric. IMHO the best deal value of their offer

    I'm interested in seeing a real-world picture of a 200/4ply. I'm considering buying a white french-cuff one to use as a tuxedo shirt. If it's as crisp as I think it is, it'll work just fine. Although in the week that I've been waffling about it, they've gone from $99 to $130!

    I dislike that the two collar options are button down and cutaway - give me a big tall spread, please - but I think I'll try a white cutaway one next order unless they sell out.

    Also: what the heck happened to all the OCBD's? That was their bread and butter in the beginning. There are no university stripes to be found in Tokyo Classic.

    They got some oxfords the other week but I waited a day and they sold out of my size. I keep checking for a restock but it's just dobby after dobby.

    The Madison Ave store is having an anniversary event today. Unfortunately, I have standing Wednesday plans so can't make it.

    What is that event about? I'm going to get a couple of shirts this week actually.
