I used the shirt a few times before writing this review. All in all, the shirt is good quality, but it is very difficult to wear due to the stiffness of the fabric, tendency to crease very fast and due to very (very!) tight cuffs.
- good general quality: dense fabric, fine pattern, mother-of pearl buttons
- it creases very fast
- very difficult to iron, even if tumbled dried at low speed and then air dried.
- the fabric is rather dull, I fail to notice the "astonishing sheen" advertised online
- the cuffs are extremely tight. They can not be buttoned even over a fitness band, let alone a watch. This is the only shirt I ever had with this problem.
As a conclusion, this is a shirt I would definitely not buy again.
Not too boxy, not too slim-fitting, it's a really nice regular cut
Fabric is also very good for the price
The Winchester pattern is classic and versatile. Like my other Kamakura shirts, the fit is phenomenal – it feels tailored to me. The EASY CARE fabric is a great bonus, keeping me looking sharp with minimal effort.
This shirt is all about the refined details. The imported broadcloth fabric has a beautiful drape to it, and the cutaway collar adds a touch of sophistication. Another amazing fit from Kamakura, truly enhancing my appearance.
The dobby pattern adds a nice touch of understated style to this shirt. The Italian spread collar feels modern and elegant. As with all Kamakura shirts, the cutting is fantastic – flattering and comfortable to wear all day.
