    Sulka is a fine, fine clothier. I love that Chicago store. No experience with the shirts I'm afraid.

    The more recent RTW Sulka shirts are crap. The Sulka stores - all, including the one on Oak Street in Chicago, closed a few years ago.
    I don't like H&K. Sulka RTW cannot compare to Charvet RTW.

    I have 4 or 5 Sulka shirts -- one dress shirt, one tuxedo shirt, the others sport shirts. I would compare them to Paul Stuart's shirts (but not Stuart's Choice) or perhaps Lorenzini's. The fabrics are very nice in my experience; the construction though is nothing special -- machine-made and none of the special touches that you see in top-end shirts like Borrelli, T&A, Kiton, etc.

    This is taking a turn for the perverse...

    Only if you scallywags share your opinions of Sulka shirts.

    I'm surprised that the shirts are shite given that the ties are so high quality and that Sulka is such a prized find to so many SFers.

    Come on, weigh in, or NO FUDGE FOR YOU.

    They were likely manufactured by Geneva Shirts in NY, a high-quality manufacturer, at least many of them were. I purchased a few at full price years ago and noticed the stripes did not match up in various parts of the shirt. Most "normal" people wouldn't notice imperfections in strip or pattern matching (We, by definition, don't fall into the normal classification), so at a deep discount, your shirts are keepers.

    Sulka shirts are demonstrably superior to H&K and I'd say a few notches below Charvet, only because Charvet matches stripes and patterns more meticulously. H&K is just garbage.

    Thank you all for your considered, measured responses.

    If the Seller does actually send the fudge recipe, I will post it in one of the non-clothes forums here.

    "H&K is just garbage." -- Grayson

    Compared to ?????????? -- just a tad extreme a statement perhaps?

    I don't think Geneva made any of Sulka's RTW shirts, just MTM shirts.
    Trust me, the $99-MSRP Sulka shirts are garbage. I think that they were made by some now-closed factory in the USA. The worst thing is the (lack of) quality of the stitching.
