    They are very reasonable. You can go MTM or just get their standard size, which is nice. I highly recommend the formal button-down. The full and high spreads are both also very nice.

    What's with their shirt size nomenclature .. I am so confused .. It used to be 15, 15 3/4, 15.5, 16 .. Now it's 39 and 40 and for both those numbers it says size is M .. What a mess .. This is particularly inconvenient when ordering dress shirts ..

    I haven’t tried Charles Tyrwhitt yet. I fly to UK every week now for work and planning to stop by their Swindon store next week. They have one in the Designer outlet there so will take a look and will buy a couple or so to try them if the fit was good.

    @Nikola I've never used their standard sizes but I think it's because they use metric? The multiple mediums thing is kind of weird though.

    I've only had a few Tyrwhitt shirts but have not been especially impressed. Of the more affordable English shirtmakers, I prefer TM Lewin.

    @Michael81 I got quite a few of Tyrwitt shirts and they are really good, IMO .. Never tried the TM Lewin though, as their classic collar seems a bit too narrow in the photos and I am not sure if it will reach the lapels of the jacket when using tie, though the prices are dirty cheap .. I mean 19 pounds for a shirt .. LoL .. You got experience with their classic collar?

    I remember having a similar experience with Tyrwhitt collars. I also remember their shirts being preposterously slim. But yeah, for £19, not bad at all.

    I actually don't have any English shirts, in my closet anymore, but Lewin's spread collar seemed adequate.

    I have to say, I am not a fan of SuSu collars. Their spread collar is okay but those ultra-cutaways are not my thing at all. I prefer a harmonious relationship between the angles of the collar and the notch of the gorge.

    This is always a mystery! I’d recommend you start checking early in the morning when you get up! Take a look every couple of hours or something as items will be limited and will move fast!

    I'll send you a picture when I wear one. I think they play well with my face.

    That is one way to think about it. Personally I prefer the angles of the notch and the collar to align.

    Good:

    Someone mentioned it here a while back and I quite liked the idea. It's a very subtle effect but it definitely makes for a more harmonious fit.
