Gents, Wondering if anyone here has experience getting a shirt done from Dunhill? I saw a video of it on youtube and I'm intrigued. I live in HK and I haven't asked the price/lead time yet, just wondering if anyone has experience with them. I'm also thinking of making a custom Brooks Bros shirt for the hell of it, which is 900HKD for the regular non-iron fabric. Is that a good deal? Cheers

YFYF Any info on the new ties you guys got? Been busy and haven't had the time to come in!

Side note: they said "we'll give u a better deal if you pick the fabrics you like" (for the Egyptian cotton swatches), anyone got intel on those?

I presume you mean the shirt costs that much, not just the fabric. Yeah dude, 2 shirts, 560, I paid half as deposit. I don't know about what type of extra detailing you got or what not, but since its my first time, I just chose a collar + french cuffs, maybe u want much...

Yeah, the ones he has in stock (not in swatches) are all 280. I originally e-mailed him to ask (in English no less) and thought he was just trying to pull me in. Once I got there, the ones by the wall are all 280.
