brooks brothers...quality is great and they have a number of fits, so one of them will likely work for you (prob have a dozen or more at this point and no issues)

Kamakura
post #85203 of 98191
Kamakura is better suited for tucking (without alterations at least). I would say WvG or Epaulet < $150 and I've tried just about every option that's readily available except New England Shirt co. I'm in between sizes for Gitman so that doesn't work for me. BoO will generally be outside of your budget at retail.

You'll probably need to shorten the length of the Kamakura unless you have a very long torso, but it'll still come under your budget.

Lol which is overpriced normal japanese retail is $100

Best Oxford depends on what cyc said. Also add Thom Browne or older black fleece ones to list but neither is optimal as one is $240 other is hard to find

Have you ever considered Mastai Ferretti? Yoox carries the brand and sells them at a good price point, especially with the current sales. Be advised the white shirts sell fast. They have nice materials and most of them are darted in the back for a nice silhouette. The only thing that sucks is that Yoox doesn't differentiate between the 3 styles: custom (darted and slim), slim (darted and slimmer than the custom in the chest waist and arms), and regular (the non-darted versions - never tried these). For reference, I am a small in most brands and generally a 14.5 dress shirt, but I take a 15.5 in Mastai for a nice slim fit. Neck fits fine as well.

RFT: I've heard all the horror stories about clothes from y!jp coming wildly not as described, smelly, stuff in pockets, etc, but after getting my latest FromJapan package this morning, I have to say that all of the pieces I've acquired this way were freshly cleaned, neatly packaged and in excellent condition. I always held back on proxying because of this but it seems to me that the Japanese take very good care of their clothes.

Dear Mr. Throup

While I appreciate your design approach, I don't know that your clothes are functional enough for the needs of the average wearer. Shirts, for instance, could be improved with a liquid resistant spill bib and refillable pouches in the underarms where the user can put baking soda or charcoal so that deodorant, and indeed even washing, aren't needed. On outerwear, by the cuffs on the top of the arm, I would like to see a pad in a dark, soft material that's useful for absorbing liquids issuing from the nose and mouth, as well as a Swiss-army-knife-like attachment on the underside containing a fork and a spoon so that I don't have to find, or even hold, utensils. Skull bags should be lined internally in insulating plastic so I can simply pour my lunch into my bag and then use aforementioned sleeve utensils to eat it. Pants would be dramatically improved with a system in which the whole seat of the pant is lined and leads to a small, discreet tube running down the leg that opens near the ankle, allowing the wearer to casually empty liquid contents while walking.

Your designs unfortunately lead me to believe that you just haven't put that much thought into them, and that perhaps you should spend a little more time perfecting your products before rushing them to market. On the upside, a more considered approach might allow you to charge more as well, as the customer would know he's getting a fully thought-out garment rather than something hastily and thoughtlessly planned and assembled. I hope you'll find this criticism constructive.

Best regards,
P

My Siki Im one is great for $100 although the sewing job is sloppy.  Kinda full cut. I don't know what retail was or if he made more of them, however.
