For RTW shirts. I am quite fond of a few H&K, Finamore, and Truzzi. I just can't justify spending $130-^^ when I can get a custom shirt for $40-45 from Jantzen. I think if I was to consider spending $130-and up on another order of shirts, I think I would visit Cego.

Jantzen and now CEGO customer.

Was not happy with Jantzen's customer service, which has seemed especially bad, IMHO, over the last couple months so I went to CEGO while I was in the Big Apple visiting Mr. Ned's shop. Can't wait to see the results of my order. Sounds like internet orders are getting a little more attention lately, so I may give him a try again. We'll see.

Of course my size is not available in RTW so I have to do MTM... But as was mentioned above, for that price I see no reason to not custom.

Cheers,

For RTW I would also look at ebay for Borrelli and the AM line by Anna Mattuozzo. Expect to pay around $139 per shirt for brand new.

It seems that fashion and maybe style is your goal, then the designers you have found are the way to go. However, if fit is a top priority then custom or bespoke is possible at you price range. Etro maybe entering it's sell by date and will result in the possibility of being a fashion victim if you wear them next season.

The main reason to buy $200+ shirts is fabric or design details.

Designers often have fabrics woven specifically for them. A mill will not make the same fabric for someone else. Etro and turnbull do very special looks. there is no way that I can get the exact same fabrics.

There are also inticate design details that might be diffiicult to duplicate.

My basic shirt is just that. a simple shirt made to your measurements with the various details that can be selected.

I can duplicate crazy details. These are no longer basic shirts. The price is much higher. I am making samples for a very fashionable NYC clothing company. The details are driving us crazy, but we can do it. They are also willing to pay for these details. Eventually the production will be made in India where those details will be inexpensive to reproduce.
