Shirt maker Charles Tyrwhitt has launched a new partnership with and British Airways Executive Club.

What is interesting about the deal is that it covers their stores as well as online.

The standard earning rate is 4 Avios per £1.  However, until 31st March, you will earn 8 Avios per £1.  This offer is not mentioned on the Tyrwhitt website but is promoted over at

Charles Tyrwhitt Avios British Airways

You can also save 10% on online orders until 4th April with Charles Tyrwhitt promotional code UKAFB4.

It is a long time since I bought any shirts from Tyrwhitt – my disproportionately large neck compared to my slim waist means I always struggle with fit and I ended up getting some shirts made.

(My view is that you are better off paying for made to measure shirts than a made to measure suit, especially if the suit jacket is just going to sit on a coat hanger all day, but that is a different article for a different site.)

They do offer a large combination of sleeve length and neck combinations, however, so as long as the neck vs waist fit works = and there are the options of classic, slim and extra slim – then you won’t have any trouble getting sleeves that look good.

How do I earn?


The Charles Tyrwhitt website is here.  You shop as normal and add your Avios or BAEC number under the ‘About You’ section at check-out.


Show your BAEC or card number at the till.  You don’t need the physical plastic card.

Mail order

Tywhitt catalogues will include a box on the order form for you to add your number.


If you ring up to order, the operator can take your card number.

In all case, points will not be credited until 28 days from purchase to allow for refunds.

8 Avios per £1, during this special introductory offer until 31st March, is not a bad deal.  The fact that is stacks with other promotional codes, which Trywhitt release with great frequency, means that the Avios are genuinely an additional bonus.

    Great news. Get most of my shirts from CT- fit me well & very decent quality.

  • flibbly says:

    I ordered some shirts a couple of weeks ago and noticed the box for my avios/BAEC account number. I added it not knowing whether it would stack with the offer I was purchasing under. No avios shown up yet, but there’s still time….

    • MrCinnamon says:

      Avios are added 28 days after purchase in order to allow time for returns.

  • Leo says:

    As a CT wearing Waitrose shopping reader of HfP it’s rather my week!

  • Genghis says:

    I had CT and TM when I was younger but now just go for M&S luxury non iron (mainly white as they then go with any tie – good when travelling), the £45 but 2 for £60 (the ‘offer’ is always on) ones. Excellent quality fabric and when they come out my suitcase after about 10 mins of body heat all the creases have fallen out. Are CT non iron shirts of comparable quality? I’m certainly reviewing my shopping habits this week…

    • Graham Walsh says:

      Same here. Most of my shirts are CT or TML non iron but last year switched to M&S Luxury White when 3 for £90 then buy them when Sparks have a 20% off voucher. M&S are nicer quality and travel better IMO.

  • Neil says:


    Go up a neck size but get slim or extra slim fit. Great shirts and soooo tempted by the deal bu I already have loads… aaagh.


    • David P says:

      I have to do this as well. I choose my shirts on how well the collar size fits and then get the slim/extra slim fit to suit my chest. My problem is that most of the extra slim fit shirts tend to come in a narrow range of materials and many are poor quality: M&S/Debenhams/John Lewis are hopeless in this regard, and Moss Bros aren’t much better. I haven’t tried CT’s extra slim fit yet, although I’ve been meaning to get round to it for ages so I should use the offer whilst it’s available.

      • Relaxo says:

        Ive had problems with CT sizing…Their extra slim fit seems to be the equivalent of slim fit for other brands. I strongly recommend going into a shop to try out & then buy online.

  • TGLoyalty says:

    Tempting especially as I have a £20 off £100 spend AMEX offer

  • CV3V says:

    I was about to stock up on some shirts and CT were an option, but then i took a chance on a Kirkland (!) shirt from Costco, and its by far the best fit for an off the peg have ever had. CT shirts are on permanent offer and nowhere close to the quality implied by the RRP.

    Glad we are talking about made to measure shirts (!), had 2 batches of shirts made in BKK at tailors with high/top Tripadvisor rankings and they are really poor quality. Went to a shop in Hong Kong and the tailor explained the tricks used in BKK, he was proved right, as the Hong Kong shirts remain by far the best quality.

    • Graham Walsh says:

      Just picked up 3 this evening to see what they are like. Only downside for me is single cuff, I prefer double cuff, but useful as I regularly forget cuff links 🙂

  • Andrew says:

    Cash discount over points every time.

    A brisk walk through TK Maxx in recent weeks found a stack of CT along with Jaeger shirts for about £10 each.

    • Mike says:

      My shirts are also a mixture of CT and Kirkland non iron.
      Buying CT in TKMaxx I can imagine it would be tough to find my exact size in.
