Tip/Ask the MB: Biased Cut Shirts

Tip/Ask the MB: Biased Cut Shirts
Tip: Biased Cut is also holding a sale. Four of their shirts are at $50.

Question: I'm really digging the Bona Fide. It fits the season well and it's very understated. Your thoughts? Also, I'm a little unsure about Eucalypt. I need your guidance on this one.
--Albert


A: 50 bucks for a custom shirt should get everyone's attention, and Biased Cut shipped the best-fitting shirt of the ones we reviewed.

Regarding your questions, Albert, if you like the Bona Fide, go for it. But because you're unsure, sit tight on the Eucalypt. We've learned to hold apparel to the same burden of proof as potential partners/spouses: even if there's only a hint of doubt about an item, pass on it or return it. It really cuts down on the trips to the resale shop. And divorce court.

NB: One thing we weren't crazy about with the Biased Cut shirt was the 1/8" collar stitching and the 1/4" stitching everywhere else. If you make the request for consistent 1/4" stitching, Biased Cut will accommodate.
