The world's best shirtmakers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's Forbes.com's version of the world's best shirt makers: http://www.forbes.com/lifestyle/2003..._1217feat.html There's also a feature on the world's best suit makers as well.

Ummm... pretty unremarkable article. It seemed as if they were rating the 20 most POPULAR shirts instead of the 20 best. Also, how can price be taken into account when rating the "best." If this were the case, can one honestly get a better deal than Jantzen Tailor ::ducking punches::?

I can't even make it thru the list... unreal that they put that freaking dude on every single slide and you have to mute him, very annoying.

A lot of the choices seem to be pretty hype driven without much real knowledge put into them. Armani and Hermes consistently are mentioned here as some of the worst values in terms of what you get for their prices, and brands like Thomas Pink and Zegna (at least Soft and main line) that seem to live more on name than their value also came up for some reason. Obviously it would have been unrealistic to try to seek out every small tailoring house for a general survey, but I'm surprised that the above brands were mentioned at the expense of Fray, Oxxford, Kiton, etc.

And they spelled Borrelli wrong ..... And Ralph Lauren is a shirt maker? I will be very impress if he actually does anything... And Turnbull has a minimum of 6 shirts....
