sturdy shirt a great deal on clearance
Very tough fabric. Dye color is (intentionally) faded out and not consistent. Size runs on the large side, which seems normal for TA items. This is more like a camping/work shirt than a silky formal shirt; the silk in the weave is more tough than soft. I like the shirt quite a bit, and the price is good on sale.
Really like this shirt
I really like this shirt, it looks very nice but it does fit most of the reviews. The material is on the rougher side, it's raw silk and cotton. If you want a nice smooth silky shirt it is not for you. The sleeves fit about like most of the TA shirts I have, a little longer than I like but I wear an XL and a 34 inch sleeve, when I order an XL without specifying a sleeve length I expect a little longer sleeve. If you want a nice looking shirt that holds it body well after ironing, one that is not really rough, but isn't silky as most people expect when they see silk, this is a very nice looking shirt. I have two and plan on ordering a third.
I don't understand the bad reviews. I love this shirt. It lasts. It looks good out of the dryer. The silk blend is great. I hope that don't get rid of it because of all the negative reviews!
sizing is way off for a "classic" fit. The arm holes are HUGE, so this shirt hangs horribly. Some larges fit me perfectly, and others (slim fit styles) are too tight, but this large is made for someone who is monstrous.
great shirt, but not durable (at all...)
I have two to three dozen TA shirts, and am a big fan of the huge selection of talls with their long sleeves. I have purchased three of the Biergarten shirts, and other silk-blend items, from TA over multiple years. All of them fray along seams (cuffs, pocket, collar, shoulders) within about 10 (gentle!) machine washings. This shirt is my favorite for initial feel, but is probably the worst about fraying. I like the silk-based shirts so much that I kept ordering, in hopes the last one was an anomaly. Never again. Maybe dry cleaning would be better - who knows? If that's a fix, the shirts should definitely be labelled as such. Beware! You too will love this shirt, then it will fall apart on you....
Quality is poor
I bought one of these shirts 1-2 years ago. Love the color and material. But, it started coming apart at the seams on the sleeves. Had a seamstress repair for $25. Now the seams on shoulders are coming apart. This is not the quality I expect from TA. Do not buy this item
Silky? No way.
Rough fabric. Sleeves on tall long a bit short. Afraid further wash and dry will make worse. At almost $100 bucks........ Crazy price. Should be a VERY HIGH QUALITY. Far from it. Wasted money on shipping both ways.
This company is going to lose a good customer if they dont get it together. I just sent back two of these because the sleeves are toooo long. Im not paying $100 to wear a shirt that makes me look like a slob. Its unfortunate i had to spend $14 to find that out. Lately your shirts sleeves have been long, and the medium is too small in the chest; so i hope you correct or im done with your company.
Nice Quality, Bad Fit
I've been very pleased with my prior Territory Ahead purchases, but this shirt was a disappointment. The quality of the fabric and design of the shirt is good, but the fit is different from all of my other Territory Ahead shirts - the sizing runs large. I normally wear an XL in Territory Ahead, but I'm swimming in this XL. I will need to return it.
Very Nice Shirt Doesn'last
The material is wonderful and the fit was excellent but within a year the shirt with limited wear, was already threadbare in the collar and cuffs. Disappointing longevity...
Not the quality I'm used too
Seems like the purchasing rep skimped to increase profits
