from what i've seen, the prices actually list this way:
from more expensive to lease. and this is taking into accounts the type of fabric choices available with discounts.
I just ordered my first MT trial shirt last night....And I opted for the MOP buttons.
Not really. MT has a lot of cheap fabrics that PC doesn't use. So the range for MT is something like $30-$190, whereas for PC it's more like $60-$250. For the same fabric, the prices are comparable.
The quality difference in the shirts that I ordered was enormous between PC and MT. Both use a variety of tailors located in Asia, but for some reason PC seems to be able to get the shirt to you much more quickly than MT does (2 weeks vs 4)
Ratio doesn't have nearly as many fabrics as either of those two, so the range is truncated; their prices range from $60-$120. Their quality beat both PC and MT hands down, though it takes forever to get delivery (4-6), even though their tailors are in the US.
If you really want a $30 MTM shirt, MT is right for you, but IMO there's no such thing as a high quality $30 shirt.
PC has better variety than ratio, and the quality is close, but it also tends to be more expensive for similar fabrics.
You really can't go wrong with ratio or PC, since they both offer to remake the shirt if anything is wrong. This is much better than simply offering a tailoring credit.
