I was surprised that there were no Oxford cloth button downs at Brooks Brothers. They tried to talk me into a couple of flimsier fabrics. Crazy.

As I reported in another thread it took me from mid-May until July to get a white OCBD. I gave up on Gitman and went with Mercer and like it fine. The fabric is a good weight.

Their Garland, NC factory closed down more than a year ago and they have been burning through inventory with constant sales. It's surprising that they have run out of some sizes?

TAL is headquartered in Hong Kong. Makes different quality, dependent on customer. Supplies J Crew, J C Penny, Banana Republic. They actually bought a minor share on Brooks Brothers several years ago, and several of their manufacturing management team worked at the Garland factory for a year, or so.
