    They look to be very fine quality in-store, with good tall collars. I didn't think they were worth £200 though, so I've never actually bought any.

    Also, although they are described as "handcrafted" on the website, the shirts have basically no handwork on them. Maybe the gussets are attached by hand. You can get Italian bespoke shirts with heaps of handwork (not that handwork is king, but nonetheless) for the same price.

    Yes, very good looking shirts but the price is too high. I guess buying a whole shirt factory has to be paid back somehow, and they are made in England from fine shirtings.

    I am considering buying one of their shirts and having it replicated by my shirt maker. The color looks very nice.
