If Money was no object.... Create your own suit... - Page 2

post #16 of 35
I see the references to Thomas Mahon shirts, but why? It's not as though Mahon makes them himself, and I've never seen anyone here gush about Rayner & Sturges. Are the shirts that good? I was under the impression they were essentially MTM. Am I off base?

(Not trying to be dismissive, just genuinely curious why this is an "ultimate" shirt.)

For me, it has a lot to do with the fact that Thomas Mahon is relatively unknown beyond these fora. It's just an extra something that you won't find many wearing.

for me i would daytime suit/ work suit go for something like the goldfinger suit in grey herring bone with a plain white hounds tooth shirt with wide spread cooar and a blood red and gold polka dot narrow tie.

for the shirt and tie i'd go for T&A and for the suit kilgour.

for night time it would be blact hopsack with peak lapal from spencer hart for the shir i would have a plain white sea island cotton with wide spread collor and and a black shadow striped tie again from T&A

shoes for daytime would be G&G bespoke in antiqued olive green and for evening again G&G bespoke in black baby croc!

Well, the reason I'd get a Mahon shirt is because he sounds like he knows what he's doing with R&S. Also, soft construction applied to shirtmaking sounds nice to me.

Wouldn't you rather run with the herd, over at Charvet?

Surprised you didn't say that about my choices in accessories, Lucky.

Heh, now that I read it again, so am I. Just read something about the Bond wardrobe in the novels on a site that was linked to from AAAC. Fleming seemingly had a fetish for Sea Island cotton.

I'd get it just for the sake of having a shirt made of Sea Island cotton. I think stuff like that is beyond my palate's appreciation.

Would that simply amount to a not so closely fitting shirt which is generally what MTM results in...

No, as in the collar and cuffs not being so stiff as some shirtmakers tend to make them.

If money's no object, I'd be running straight to AK for shirts - if he'd have me!
