    Ratio Clothing Appreciation Thread

    As a repeat customer of Ratio, I'd like to start a thread to show off the quality shirting this company produces. I encourage others to join.

    They are very well made shirts. I purchased one last year but it was to narrow in the waist. That may be because I'm a little big around the waist but my Gitmans fit fine.

    Good to see someone else saw this! I'm thinking of sending in my first shirt I ordered to get the collar replaced. Eric said it is $25.00, so I'm thinking of ordering a 'Londoner' collar, I love the depth of customization they offer.

    Thanks for posting! If we can be of any assistance, just let us know and we'll be happy to help out. We can definitely swap out that collar for you, if you're still interested.

    Extremely happy with my first Ratio shirt. I went for the light blue pinpoint as my test shirt and it turned out great. My tailor did a minor adjustment to the sleeve length (my measurement was off) but overall a very nice Made in the USA MTM shirt. I plan on ordering some more but just have not gotten around to it yet. Customer service could not have been any better.

    I knew starting this thread would be a good idea. I was reading stories about lousy CS from SuitSupply and as appealing as the $79 cutaway shirts are, I keep finding myself wanting to come back to Ratio. My Ratio shirts haven't been in heavy rotation lately, but I know when I do wear them, I love them.

    Knowing all the customizations and the fact a skilled American worker is getting a living wage makes me even happier.
    I'm thinking of asking Eric if I can have some shirting weight denim get turned into a Londoner shirt, that or the oxford cloth, which I encourage everyone who reads this to buy.

    Recently ordered my 4th shirt with them. Great company that produces well made product here in the U.S.A.

    Concur on all fronts. I was very happy with my Ratio oxford shirt & tremendously happy with the customer service. (They remade a shirt for me, even though it was my fault that I specified the shoulders too small...) Will definitely order from them again.

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to post here, I know Eric appreciates it and I do to. I would love to see Ratio get a lot more buzz. I honestly really badly want to get some of the madras shirts!

    I ordered the gray oxford with black buttons and the Dennison plaid (poplin). When I save more I'm going for the red selvedge chambray. I only buy American made clothing and all my shirts are from either Gitman or Bill's. Going forward I'm going to only buy from Ratio, if Eric and I figured out the sizing.

    You should look into getting your hands on fabric and I've been told by Eric that they will make you a shirt from that. For example, a local shop has very lightweight denim shirting material that I intend on having made into a cutaway and a button down. So definitely look into that.

    Check out Etsy for fabric!

    Really? I will certainly look into that! I have been looking for oxford cloth with a pattern.

    I'm interested in ordering some shirts from Ratio (some OCDB and a couple of dress shirts) at some point. I do have a question, the pink OCBD, anyone buy that and is it as deep a shade of pink as it shows on the website?

    I don't know, the pink looks pretty nice. I did order the gray oxford last year and that was pretty close to the color on the site. Perhaps a little lighter.

    Don't they source the Oxford cloth from the same factory that Brooks Brothers uses? I'd wager the colors are similar.

    I have the pink ratio. Its a bit richer than a pale pink offered by Brooks. I like the material!

    Good to hear about the fabric quality. I can live with a bit richer, the pink offered by Brooks Brothers is tricky with my ruddy anglo-scots complexion. I'll keep an eye on where the Canadian dollar is in terms of exchange rate and maybe order some Ratio shirts around my birthday at the end of the Summer.

    Would be nice to see some of the OCBD shirts photographed in daylight.
