France offers host of great value-for-money propositions (are you sensing a theme here?), which never really gets celebrated by the rest of SF, except notably in the French tailoring thread, worth checking out: http://www.styleforum.net/t/346199/french-tailoring-thread-e-g-camps-de-luca-cifonelli-smalto-and-etc In the bespoke shirt-making department I would quickly highlight both Courtot and Lucca in Paris, at 250€ per fully handmade shirt. And the record for the...
If you're looking for handmade limited-edition bowties, this up and coming French brand is worth knowing about: http://www.leloirenpapillon.com Michael-François Loir it's constantly thrifting fabrics, 1 m here in 1 m there, and making up a few handmade bowties from them, probably no more than five or six per design.

Thanks. It's a very original take on the knit tie. Sufficiently rare that I copped it in navy, khaki, burgundy and brown, for fear of not finding them again. I did not get the gray, black or fuscia, but the gray has been haunting me ever since...
I got a Borrelli kinda like it on eBay, but haven't received it on time for this FC:
