This is a warning for anyone tempted by the links for clergy shirts below.
The shirt arrived today. I had accepted the initial UPS fee (State side) that doubled the price of the shirt. But on delivery they added another £20, which included VAT at almost 50% of the value of the shirt. I suspect I can get a bit of it back, but only after endless correspondence.
But all that I could live with if the shirt were OK. It’s not that it doesn’t fit (though it doesn’t). It’s not that I don’t like the cut (though I don’t). It’s that the so-called tabbed collar is nothing more than a normal fold down collar tacked down at the edges. For that I could have bought a shirt anywhere and done it myself.
This happened to me once before when ordering from the States (Womenspirit that time), but I thought it was a one off problem. Clearly not.
So clergy, be warned.
Now — does anyone know a good dressmaker??
