How many shirts do you own? - Page 17

post #241 of 338
My worst fitting shirt for lounging around:

Hawes and Curtis too big blue shirt over thermals

Naked and Famous cashmere stretch jeans over thermal leggings

A better fitting Anna Matuozzo shirt (she's tweaked it again since)

A lot. But it doesn't seem quite so much because they are spread out among two homes, two offices, two clubs and a boat. I change shirts at least three times a day, which requires a stash be maintained at various locations, which in turn requires a large inventory. If I wore just one shirt a day and didn't travel I could get by with well under a hundred.

Sounds like quite a haul!

Are they bespoke or rtw high end?

All my dress shirts are bespoke, made over the last twenty five years or so by a half dozen different shirt makers.

Who do you use - the high end Italian makers, Jermyn Street or others??

Just curious:-)

Nope. I'm sure that your comment is witty and urbane but sadly it has sailed right over my head. Sorry.

He was asking why you have to change so often - the Bollywood reference was speculating that you might be getting all sweaty from sudden, inexplicable and energetic dancing in public places, as in Bollywood movies. :)

How often do you buy new everyday or special shirts, would you say??smile.gif

These days I probably only buy 20 or so a year. Have considered trying bespoke shirts, but I like a full cut, so what's the point?

Quite right, bespoke would be a waste of money - better off with good quality high end shirts!

Do you ever wear any out???smile.gif

Most of my stripes are T&A but I haven't ordered from them in over a decade. Their quality control took a nosedive and I jumped the channel to a shop at Place Vendôme. Very happy there, they will be my last shirtmaker.

That would be Charvet - I used to live next to Place Vendome!

Yes, I like their shirts as well, but Anna's cut suits me better:)

For the collar, which is in my opinion the most important part of a shirt. Most men wear shirts with either ill fitting or unflattering collars. A good shirtmaker will cut you a collar that suits you best.
