http://www.hilditchandkey.co.uk/ Good shirts. Decent prices.
You are correct. I am surprised that you only noticed them recently.The plague has been upon us for several years now.
Or buying other RTW in deep discount and pay alterations for better results..Does that mean that it's either bespoke from a recognized tailor as in Steed or NSM,or it's deeply discounted high-end RTW, eg Attolini, Kiton, Oxxford, etc with extensivealterations?I visited B &R at an SF meet-up last year. I wasn't very impressed with their samples.

I was a Chipp customer in the 80s and 90s. I bought RTW and MTM, not custom (bespoke) I am not sure that such linings were available in MTM- I wasn't interested in any case. I stopped shopping there when I no longer got to New York regularly. Great clothes. I still have a couple of jackets and a suit.
I have several ecru dress shirts and a 40 year old silk pleated evening shirt. The evening shirt is a treasure which no longer fits. It made an otherwise unobtrusive Ivy League cut tuxedo a bit more soigne'.
Conicidentally, a discussion of Enzo Caruso bespoke tailor in Santa Monica CA, came up a day or two ago. He's not Dege, although he could be just as good. His house style is more Neapolitan, I believe. Nevertheless, he's practically local and might meet your Sept. deadline. Here are my comments in the thread: Another suggestion; Caruso in Santa Monica. He got an excellent review in the Sleevehead Blog six years...
