Is this going to be re-released in the same color?

(...If yes, any idea on a timeline?)

I'm hoping so!

Thanks for the measurements Giles, will come in handy when deciding what to replace it with!  For what it's worth, i think i had a bad one too.  With mine the panel in the middle of the shirt with the poppers on it (am sure there's a more technical term for it) was wonky and didn't seem straight.  Possibly other issues, but didn't examine much closer than that.
Bit bummed it's going back, but applaud the decision to recall.

Got mine today, and I'm having a real hard time finding any fault to it. The pockets are perfectly aligned, the check pattern matches across the placket, the stitching is OK, the felled seams are fine. I've also compared to IHSH-87, and IHSH-107 and the quality is identical. The back panel doesn't match with the front, but that has been the case for every UHF I've had.

I assume I'm allowed to keep it, yes?  :)

That's awesome @FurattoHeddo
Yeah, I'm still a bit confused about the "back not lining up" as I can not find any images of other UHFs with the back and front side seam matching up perfectly. I can understand if the front pockets are severely misaligned or the placket is weird.

The back never lines up on a western because the yoke is cut on the bias on a western shirt.  I never mentioned anything about side seams lining up or not lining up on these.

Haraki and I want these shirts back, so whatever you think is a moot point I am afraid.  They are not as good as we make them, we do not want them in circulation.  We are pulling them all back from retailers and I have even ripped the 102tg that @Axel  was in love with, off his back.

Paula and Matt are processing refunds and return shipping labels.

This is not a pleasant task we are having to undertake, so please just work with us guys.

Been re-examining the stitching on the front placket, and it doesn't entirely run in a straight line... Didn't notice it when wearing the shirt, but it is more noticeable when the shirt is laid down on a flat surface.
What an effin' shame though, the fabric is gorgeous...  :(

A short romance I had with that shirt..  :(

But as much as I love this shirt and as much work as we had with shipping them out to you all as fast as possible (even working throughout the weekend), they just don't deserve to be out there. I must say though, it makes me incredibly proud to be interning at a company with that kind of attitude.

What will happen to the returned / unsold shirts? Will they be examined, destroyed and forgotten?
