    Are these shirts pre-shrunk? I just got em in the mail and love how the feel and fit. Unfortunately, any smaller in the sleeves or in the body would force me to retire the shirts after a wash. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    Got mine yesterday, and am very impressed. Very good fit for me OTR. Will be ordering more once washed and confirmed limited "shrinkage"

    No these shirts are not pre-shrunk. Expect 3-4% shrinkage over time... The good thing about the fit (in our opinion) is you should be able to wear 2 sizes... so you may need to bump up one size

    Sweet.

    Any others care to post fit pics? We've sold almost 300 shirts in the past 2 weeks! Any feedback either positive or constructive criticism? I know we need to offer more in the fuller model... and some people have expressed they'd like to see more of the wider spread collar.

    I was in Biella last week as well as Switzerland picking out more fabrics... also will be trying out a different factory as well, but will continue to produce another batch with SAITT for later this spring/summer.

    My only complaint with the shirts is the collar stays are super flimsy. Other than that I'm happy with them!

    Agree on the flimsy collar stays. I thought they were really just placeholders for packaging/presentation.

    Ben, how are your steel collar stays sized? The ones that come the shirts are quite large. If yours are the smaller, more standard size, I'm sure they still work; but wondering.

    Any way you can extend the pricing promotion for another 2 weeks?

    Set of 20 includes 10 in 2.5" length and 10 in 3" size. 2.5" is the most useful size... I also bend my collar stays for a nice roll, especially since I often wear sans cravatte.

    Sorry... this was a special introductory promotion. The truth is at $75 they're still a great buy and value.

    I just got in a Riviera sportcoat.

    Holy. Cow.

    I'm still trying to decide if nailhead works with my wardrobe, but as for the fit and hand of the fabric--incredible. Now I really regret not picking up the navy one in my size.

    Any chance you'll be getting more of these in?

    The 38s? I regret not buying the one you just got. At least we're both 1/2 happy instead of one full happy and one full of regret!

    Believe it or not we sold those Riviera's barely above our cost (we paid an average price for them all), so not sure if we'll get more any time soon. The plaid cashmere ones are sweet, and we still have more of those! Also the plaid cashmere ones are full canvas, whereas the other ones that were $395 - $425 are half canvassed.
