    What exactly are swim trunks

    The material used for swim trunks will dry much faster than other fabrics and the mesh liner is for support (keeps your junk in the trunks ;)) and it's also quick drying. If you wear cotton gym shorts and a jock strap you'll be wet all day.

    making shirt collars a bit larger

    My Turnbull & Asser shirts had a tendency to shrink in the collar more than my other shirts. It may have something to do with the type of interlining used. I was able to gain back some of the shrinkage (maybe 1/4") by soaking the collar in warm water for a time, then giving it a firm stretch.

    Generally, Made in England has been eroding over the last twenty years or so. Once you leave the very top of the market the quality is not what it used to be. Also, didn't I read that games can be played with that designation.
