I can facilitate a group order via their official Taiwanese site: http://www.unitedathle.co/ for Golden Jimmy members only. Not a Golden Jimmy? then sign up here.

The Taiwanese official site offers a lot more styles and other items than what is available in the UK, and at least you can guarantee its legitimacy and authenticity because it's their official site compared to the items on Taobao.

If choice and selection is important to you then my offer may seem more appealing than buying from Open As Usual. If you wish to buy from them as it works out cheaper for you, I won't be offended. There's no skin off my nose as what I'm offering is merely a favour to help out Golden Jimmies Smiling

Nevertheless, anyone who wants to get involved with a group order from United Athle needs to be fully aware and agree to the following:

1) In an attempt to save you international shipping, depending on the number of orders and items, I will collect and bring these back to the UK with me when I go over in March time. This means that your orders won't be shipped/forwarded to you until March 18th the earliest. Shipment to you can be via Royal Mail Signed For or Hermes Tracked and Signed depending on your preference - I will not send anything unsigned for.

2) Depending on demand, if I can't fit all your orders in my suitcase, I'll need to ship them back to the UK in one shipment. If that is the case then I'll kindly request that all those who are participants of this group order to pay for this. The cost will obviously be split amongst yourselves. I've run a couple of EMS quotes on the Taiwanese postal website.

Box sized 50cm x 30cm x 20cm weighing 5kg will cost approximately £50 via EMS
Box sized 60cm x 45cm x 20cm weighing 9kg will cost approximately £80 via EMS

If the group consists of 10 people or more, each ordering around 4-6 items, then there's a good chance I'll need to ship the items back to the UK in one shipment. However the shipping costs divided by 10+ people isn't that much per person.

(Prices based on current exchange rate 39.69 TWD to £ on 29/01/17 )

3) Payment to me must be via PayPal Gift in TWD and you must cover all PayPal fees.

4) Your order will not be placed until you have PayPal'ed the total amount of your order. I will place the order once I receive all order requests and payments from those who want to be involved. The deadline for order requests and payment will be 3rd February. If payment isn't received by then, your order will not be processed.

5) As I'll be doing a bulk order with United Athle, there is free shipping from United Athle so you only need to be concerned about paying for:

Cost of the items + potentially the EMS shipping cost from Taiwan to UK + shipping from me in the UK to you in the UK.

If you're agreeable to the above please submit an order via PM. I will require the following details:

- Link to the item
- Size
- Colour code
- Quantity
- Shipping address
- Contact email address
- Contact telephone number

Five key points to remember:

1) This is for Golden Jimmy members only
2) Your orders won't be shipped to you until 18th March the earliest
3) If the group order is too bulky to bring back in my suitcase, the group order will need to be shipped back to the UK via EMS and you the group will pay for this cost
4) Order request and payment must both be in by 3rd February 2017
5) I will need all the above details in the order request via PM, without these details I will be unable to proceed

Depends on style and cotton weight. If you find the equivalent on http://www.unitedathle.co/ you can run the price through http://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/convert/?Amount=1&From;=TWD&To;=GBP and then compare it with Open As Usual.

Like I said, if Open As Usual has what you want and it works out cheaper for you (especially when you factor in the potential additional costs from my offer) there's no reason not to order from them instead.

Anyone recommend tees with a wider neck?
I don't mean big scoop necks. I just hate the usual tight necks on most "normal" tees.

I bought a couple of the Lady White Oarsman tees which is really what I'm looking for but they are not cheap and are not available or discontinued.

Like this morgan?

I find Bella + Canvas to be pretty good quality and affordable.

Do we need to take into account Japanese sizing for united-athle and go up a size ?

I got the 6oz ones. Wash great too. Maybe a little shrink but nothing to worry about. The sleeves aren't super fitted like the 3sixteen ones i have, but not super wide either. I have fairly big arms and these are comfy on my guns. I went with my usual size large.

I would be interested in the group buy too.

Cheers mate, I didn't rate the 3sixteen. Shrunk very badly for me and uneven shrinking at that

Good service from Open As Usual.
Got one 6oz and one 7oz.
TTS, short-ish body and comparatively long arms.
Quality's good, 6oz is slightly softer.
Maybe not worth 2 pages of chat, but will buy a few more if they wash alright.
