Product Reviews

"Like most other OCBD's. Maybe a little better because of the heavier Oxford cloth and fair price.”

Brian  from Mendocino, California - November 14, 2018

"These are typical trim fit, but stretch material prevented it from being tight or binding - ended up being a great fit - No arguments on anything.”

Steven L.  from Austin, Texas - November 14, 2018

"Don't know how to pronounce it, but on my third pair.”

Steven L.  from Worcester, Massachusetts - August 27, 2018

"Sewing good, neck size normal or on the small size, shipping fast & shirt is affordably priced. Note: spoke to customer service on the phone, real person, they were far and away more helpful than I am used to.”

Tony  from Crisfield, Maryland - August 12, 2018
