We could go on and on about the merits of machine versus hand, but the point is that they appeal...

All I can say is that I have a few Borrelli shirts I would easily place in the same league as Charvet, and if memory serves me right they cost me less than $300 - more like $200 at the time. It appears Borrelli shirts have dropped in standard more recently. Kiton shirts are also a good bang for the buck, but are rarely if ever...
I live in Chicago and I was currently in NY on business. I stopped off to visit Patrick at Bergdorf for some Charvet dress shirts, and I could not be more pleased with the fit, craftsmanship, etc. I ended up picking out 6 dress shirts in 15 3/4 at the presale price of $299 ($425 full price) & $319 ($450 full price).

I frequent Neimans near me, and there sales can be great. Regarding suits, by the time the "last call" comes along the prices for regular Zegna (2K retail) are under 1K, zegna 15 mil (3K retail) $1250. The best bargains I've found to be were Caruso's which end up being $672 from $1495. The normal formula is 55% off of retail at the last call price. Hope this helps
