Borrelli shirts - really that good? Who really makes best shirts in world? - Page 12

post #166 of 194

 I agree with Spoo that Tom Ford and Kiton have to be my favorite RTW shirts. The quality and cut of them is just impeccable. Tom Ford shirts have some of the best cotton I've ever felt with dress shirts being thick and luxurious. Kiton shirts feel very light and silky to the skin and wearing mine feels so comfortable it feels as though I'm not even wearing a shirt.

From where I stand i dont see anyway the prices of RTW Kiton shirts can be justified

A while back I saw a Kiton shirt in their promotional photos that I really liked. After inquiring at their store I discovered it would be cheaper to have the same fabric used in a MTM shirt than to buy the RTW version.

Wow, some of you guys are ballers, idiots or both. I wear almost exclusively PRL Regent shirts which are made of excellent cloth, come in a range of fits and have the BEST collars in a RTW shirt and the best part is on average I spend about $35 on a shirt. Anyone spending more should have their heads examined. Shirts are disposable like boxers. F hand tailoring and MOP buttons, they don't make you look better.

 In that case, why not just wear a t-shirt? It'll cover your moobs just as well...

You wear only AE shoes and anyone that spends more than $300 on shoes should have their heads examined.

It's pretty clear Nore believes that anyone who does not follow his personal purchasing philosophy should have their head examined. 

 

To me it's cray to spend more than 100.00 on fugly AE shoes, but to each their own.

Well, you spent $$$ on AS and G&G and they are far from the best RTW shoes.

Its all about hitting your personal sweet post where price, styling and construction intersect.

For me its Mytailor bespoke/mtm (not sure which it is, honestly..shirts fit well though) with mostly Acorn fabrics, Vass shoes, WW Chan/NSM suits and an SR one for special occasions.

I think hand stitching on shirts just makes them too delicate for my lifestyle and serves no function purpose. Thick buttons are worth it. I am too hard on my clothing for all SR or bespoke shoes to be financially appealing to me.

Econ 101, folks: They're splitting the market. It might not be good for general brand name, but if they still make higher quality shirts at their regular prices, and they can also sell lower quality shirts at lower prices, they make more money.

 

Obviously now they deal with the issue of people like those in this thread wondering about quality and if the high price is still worth it, but as long as those expensive shirts get bought up, I wouldn't be surprised if they were making lesser shirts for separate markets. That's not to suggest that they are doing that, just that it would make sense as far as the numbers go.

I never bought or owned any G&G shoes and you would cry if you knew what I paid for my AS shoes.

Tom Ford would get my nod due to quality, cut, patterns and buttons. Haven't owned all the premium brands mentioned here though...

Quite seriously, I have said this before in so many words; PRL is the best in terms of materials, fit, collar shape, availability and price. If you need something to appear hand stitched then go and spend $350+ on a shirt. If you need something that fits, looks and feels great, go and try a few PRL shirts. I may be giving my secret stash away here but there are several collar shapes and cuts across each. So you need to find the one that works for you. Some of the cloths are unreal. And I say that as a man who does not wear an undershirt under dress shirts (which is also why I put them in the boxers class).

This is the reason I don't even look at other shirt brands anymore. Plus, they don't shrink like a lot of other brands/makers.

What do you mean by "boxers class"?
