The Internet is a tremendous asset to men that, like me, would otherwise have limited access to world-class clothing. That said, shopping online requires care.
Take, please, the chambray dress shirts I received the other day. I intended to request two of them in light blue, but I specified a fabric number that was no longer valid when I sent the order in. My shirtmaker sent me a confirmation using the name of a not-what-I-wanted color rather than the fabric number, and I didn't notice that it was wrong. So here I sit with two useless-to-me dark blue shirts with a violet cast.
They are useless because in classic dressing the dress shirt is lighter in color than the jacket and necktie it is paired with. That is obviously impractical with these, leaving me nothing to do with them except wear one under a sweater once in a while. I might as well send them directly to charity.
A disappointment like this one is my own fault but whining about it helps me feel better. Order with care.
