    Explore that further. What do those words mean? How do you determine quality of fabric? What is feel? What makes a cut more or less appealing?

    quality of fabric, feel and cut. make sense?

    True. I'm just playing devil's advocate--people throw around superlatives without background.
    lol, sure pete ... ill give you some context. in the 20+ years i have been buying shirts the margielas are the most impressive. are there better dress shirts out there? of course but i dont own any ... yet. i pay special attention to how the shirt FITS ME. i prefer a dress shirt with a tapered bottom and narrow shoulders with longer sleeves (i have long arms). i also look pay attention to the feel and texture of the fabric. is the fabric comfortable and soft to the touch yet substantial at the same time? i also pay close attention to how the shirt is stitched. i also look at the buttons used on that garment. i can say w/o a DOUBT the past few margiela shirts i have purchased are the finest button downs i own given the criteria above. if you dont agree i could care less. am i a dress shirt expert? fuck no, but if you wanna play games there you go. sorry people!

    Good info about MMM shirts. I own shoes, a jacket, and a few other assorted mmm items but never even considered the dress shirts- Sounds like I should.

    For reference, mind mentioning some of the other brands you are comparing them to? I'm not trying to be a dick or question your opinion, just trying to see what you're basing that on.

    I applaud your parquet. If you wore shoes in your house I'd never have you over to mine.

    Fit pics on those Schneiders would be great. They look like they fit pretty boxy and awkward on most people.
