What a terrific shirt. I just made my first woven shirt for my husband and now it's time to try one of these great knit ones.

Great work, Tom! You've done some impressive work here on this shirt. Your detailing is sharp and the result is fabulous. You've chosen a really great fabric design and you're looking good!

Your shirt looks awesome. Thanks for the really comprehensive review. I have this pattern and have yet to try it but I feel confident I could have good results because of your review.

Wow! Very impressive and RTW-looking! I'm glad my husband doesn't wear this type of shirt or I might feel compelled to try to make one, too!

Great looking polo! I have the women version of this Kwik sew pattern and had the same problem with the placket (and the same 1/4in. gap). Your solution and great result has encouraged me to try it again.

You did a great job on the placket. The lays perfectly flat and looks very professional.

Great job on matching the stripes, Tom. Although I don't have this pattern it's making me want to find a similar one to make DH some shirts. Thanks for the review.

So glad that you reviewed this shirt. It looks great and will help motivate me into my polo shirt making odyssey.

Beautiful job on this shirt!!! Super job on the placket. My mom would be proud of you---Your stripes match perfectly! Thanks for this great review...I have this pattern in my stash, and have not used it---hubby just may be finally getting something out of it.

Great shirt, Tom. I have always been scared of placket fronts, but yours looks very good. Thanks for the review of this pattern.
