I have some shirts from him. Strengths: the single-needle seams and pattern matching is very good. The overall quality of construction is high. Certain tricks like turning the sleeves to get a pitch that mirrors the way your arm hangs also turn out well. He has access to a lot of great cloth at terrific prices. Weaknesses: cheap plastic buttons (good shape, though, and decent looking). The pattern drafting is not as precise as the best bespoke shirts: you won't get 99th percentile fit, more like 80th. Overall: tremendous value for what you get.

As far as I know, no website. I have heard about them. One of my friends has shirts by them. Looked pretty OK. -

Met with him last week about some blazers. He's in NYC for a few more weeks. Some friends swear by him.

I may be wrong but I think their prices compare w/ SF resident Shirtmaven. As shirtmaven is local, incremental improvements in fit will be easier to achieve. AFAIK, they are far higher than Jantzen price range. -

The guy's name is Shaban Alam.  He splits his time between New York and Pakistan.  The shirts are made in Lahore.  You can reach him at: Cochese@hotmail.com He will come to your office and take measurements. New York only, so far as I know.
