How many shirts do you own? - Page 25

So I definitely think trying them out and placing an order of about 5 shirts soon and giving something new a try. I could use a little change up.

I used to wear Charvet bespoke when I lived in Paris - beautiful shirts but painful prices, compared to Italy, though on a par with Savile Row

Haven't decided where to have next years shirts made - possibly try Richard Anderson now that Peter Smith is there:)

I can't imagine getting out of Place Vendôme with only five shirts. I have trouble keeping it down to a dozen.

Yes, so my next batch will come from there, as a trial!

My TMLewin blue pinstripe is very worn, and be put in the charity box at the end of September..during which time the next shows for shirting at premiere vision will have taken place..leaving me with 15 good shirts- mix of bespoke and rtw

I like looking online at what's coming, although I've been concentrating on other areas of my wardrobe this year, but hopefully next year I'll be ready for my next bespoke batch:)

Down to 15 shirts...

TMLewin blue pinstripe too worn, so retired

Not replacing it ATM, as I bought 4 Thomas Pink shirts recently

Looking forward to new shirts when I've sorted out my next Lobb boots and bought myself a new ring!smile.gif

Double post - sorry!

Right now very few. Maybe 5 or 6. I just donated or gave away a ton, mostly Calvin Klein that I've had for about 7 years.

 

For now I've replaced a lot of them with Polo shirts and will be rolling with that for 5 months. I've got a few dress shirts for formal events, which is all I need for now.

Wow!

I couldn't manage with just 5 or 6....well actually I probably could but even I'm not that minimalist!
All of my money is going into expensive denim ATM..smile.gif

You need about 15 to have a good rotation to avoid repetition and also damage...

I agree...otherwise every few months the cuffs, collar and fabric finish go and you have to replace all of them.

Having said that, I rotate about half a dozen, then when they're worn buy some more, but go back to my original collection to pick another half a dozen to wear out:)

I tend to have my usual ones, 5or 6 of them, rotating them while keeping another 6 in a slower rotation..

Feeling the urge for new shirts, but although I've bought the ring I still have my bespoke Lobb boots to pay for, and I've also bought a lot of jeans recently...so shirts stay at 15 ATM...smile.gif

RLPL-6
Finamore- 2
Marol- 1
