My choice for shirts is TM Lewin http://www.tmlewin.co.uk - usually good deals for buying 4 or more shirts. Their collars and cuffs are unfused, so they fit more naturally and stay in good shape after many washes (some of my TML shirts are 3+ years old with regular wear, and they still look good).

 

Hope it helps.


Can you get Kamakura shirts in the UK?  They are pricier, but very nice.  They have unfused collars and cuffs.  They also have longer collar points.

I've been looking at Kamakura shirts, and might just bite the bullet and get a couple. Yes, they are a touch more expensive, but I don't wear a suit everyday and the collars do look sublime.

 

You can get them in the UK but it's obviously an international shipment (no brick and mortar).

Same here, if you don't live in New York.  They have the brick and mortar in New York, but otherwise the shirts ship from Japan.  I'm guessing they do this to avoid duties.  If you get hit with duties they will credit your account for future purposes, though.

I don't live in the UK, hence don't know whether they are available there.

 

They are a bit too expensive for me currently, but I do hope that soon enough I will be able to afford them as my daily shirt option.

Topcat, is that tie in your waistcoat photo one of Suit Supply's? Cashmere or wool?

I purchased the Sienna jacket (not suit) from the website on a whim, mainly because I liked the fabric and the price point was really good at $300. I'm still not sure how I feel about the flap pockets and ticket pocket on just a jacket. What do you guys think about the fit and about the look as just a sports coat?

It's a Drake's pure cashmere tie. Got it on sale from http://www.exquisitetrimmings.com/ for the price of a Suitsupply tie (£40) earlier this year.

I don't see a problem with it; it has a British look to it.

 

The fabric does look textured enough for it not to be mistaken as a suit separate.

 

Looks like it fits well, but you should probably put on a tie and take another pic as I see potential collar gap.

I think it looks pretty damn good. I look nowhere near that good in a Sienna. Somehow it makes my hips look super wide and like I have no shoulders, which is the opposite of the actual situation. It suits you well.

Thanks, nttdocomo and MrTopCat. I've been trying to tell myself, unsuccessfully, that the flap and ticket pockets are OK, and your comments have helped a lot in convincing me. 

 

I was a little worried about the fit too (there's a small dimple/dent on my left shoulder/arm), but from what I've researched, it doesn't look like there is an easy way to fix that.

Really, I think you should wear it with pride! It looks very good on you, and I love the ticket pocket. I just don't think that this or Washington are right for my body type unfortunately. 

 

As for the "dimple", there is no easy way, but really, yours is an extremely minor example and no-one except SF would notice. I think it looks sharp, enjoy!

Maybe it's the pic but it looks like there's really a pronounced collar gap.

I'm a massive SS fan, but for the (similar) price range - Kamakura shirts are so superior it's ridiculous. I'm yet to find a better OTR shirt range anywhere than Kamakura tbh.

Which particular shirts would you recommend from their massive selection? I have a tab of their site open almost all the time, and am just after two shirts, but find it hard to know which to take a punt with at first! :)
