    That video was great. You're a polished spokesman with one hell of a rec room. I was half-expecting to see a hermetically sealed bag with Desmond Llewelyn in it. Looking forward to the next installment!

    I'm taking mine in on Saturday - can't wait :#

    Belatedly, but just wanted to say: well done Hart, there must have been times when you wished you had never volunteered to get the shirts made. But well done, you've done an outstanding job, and on behalf of all of us who were fortunate enough to jump in: thank you. {[]

    I thought I'd give an update after having mine tailored. I first wrote about the issues with my shirt is post 1,189
    http://www.ajb007.co.uk/post/661091/#p661091

    So here's what I had done:
    * sleeves reversed to fix my placket issue
    * sleeves shortened by 3"
    * body shortened by 7"
    * darts added to the back

    After the initial cost and tailoring this is now the most expensive shirt I own! But I really enjoy wearing it. Pics below.

    Thanks for your efforts Hart.

    Is anyone else still waiting for their shirt? I feel I may have been forgotten about, which was made worse by watching David's great video and seeing how everyone's has turned out. Good job David.

    @Hart008 - Just to let you know that I emailed you yesterday. I'm very interested in purchasing an Enjoying Death shirt from you.

    I've been away on business, but arrived home yesterday to find my shirt had arrived. With much trepidation I opened the packet to find a nicely made outer box, which I hurriedly opened! Within lay the shirt which I'd been waiting a best part of a year for and.....it's absolutely fantastic!

    The quality exceeded my expectations, and the tailoring of the shirt is very well done. Sure, the body is a bit long and the finishing is a bit rough around the edges (loose threads etc) but these are by no means criticisms. I'm also extremely pleased with the fit and I shall look forward to wearing it with my Levi's jacket (and AJB pin) very soon!

    My heartfelt thanks to Hart and David for making this happen. It's been a long process but the end product more than justifies the wait!

    Ps I love the label on the shirt, the packaging and the personalised limited number cert - wonderful extras that make the item a little bit more special!

    Hi guys, because I'm still waiting for my shirt and Leonard hasn't replied my emails until now, I'm getting a little nervous.
    Is anyone else still waiting for their shirt? Or does anyone have further information from Hart?

    Hi guys, How much are these? Would there be an XL left over? when you receive the can someone compare to the Magnoli or Zara original who owns both?.

    I have one for sale. PM me. Its labeled XXXL but fits like a small XL or L, depending on your body type.

    Thanks mate.

    Hey guys, my XXXL (fits like an L) is still available. Please PM me.

    Thanks

    After much anticipation, I finally received my Enjoying Death shirt today! Thanks @Hart008, it fits perfectly apart from being a little bit long- but I can get that sorted! Good job Leonard!

    Hi everyone. Can I ask if anyone else is still waiting for an ED shirt? After many emails and many assurances I am yet to receive mine. :(

    @00Tyler, I have contacted Hart a few times, most recently yesterday. He has assured me that my ED shirt will be sent next week or he will refund me. I await with consternation. Unfortunately you have to keep pressing him.

    StiffassBrit (lol, btw),

    He sent me an email and he explained that he no longer has a contract with UPS. He's negotiating the new contract with them. Which is better I think because its a faster and more secure method of shipping than the state run service.

    I got the same response. If anyone has one that fits like a Med (39" chest), let me know. I was on the original order, and kinda bummed mine was lost.

    Well my XXL arrived today. It had arrived ages ago at my US post addy and I had not bothered to forward on until I had more things delivered.

    Initial thoughts:

    Box - nice touch! Im no 28 / 100!!

    I had the original Zara for a while and this is VERY VERY close in my opinion material wise, excellent job by Hart!!

    I'm a 43 / 17 shirt wise hence I had an XXL!! This was def the correct size choice as now I can get it nipped and tucked to a more fitted shirt. The length of the shirt is long as everybody else mentioned.

    Overall very happy!! I realise these projects are a nightmare and prob the project manager wished he had not had bothered lol so many thanks to Hart. It was certainly worth the wait!!!! I think a quick wash to crease the shirt more and it will be spot on!!!!
