And, apart from Andrey, no one has even come close to answering the original question.

This will not be a dirrect answer ... but perhaps will hint at one.

About fifteen years back I went in Budd to buy some shirts off the shelf. The man in attendance suggested that I might not be happy with the fit given that I have (well, had) a lean build. He offered that the ready made shirts were rather full and suggested that I consider bespoke for a more suitable fit.

Why would you send him to Budd's if they get a bad rep? Why not go to someone whose shirts you do like?

FWIW, I've only heard one bad thing about Sean O'Flynn"”he likes to cut a soft collar. If that even is a bad thing. He has no minimum order and shirts start at £160 last time I checked.

The profundity of this statement is... quite profound.

Well, the Q pertains to Budd and their attitude. You may remember that Dege / Whittaker were also maligned for cutting a loose shirt (and sloppy customer service) before you started using them. I'm just trying to determine if Budd suffers from the same unfair talk. Anyway, it seems that Andrey is the only member with recent experience, and it appears that the folks at Budd are accomodating. RSS', more dated, example would seem to back this up.

"Nobody she knows" as the tour guide (a former maid) at Oak Alley says of a portrait that Mrs. Stewart placed over the Living Room mantle.

Huh? John Butcher, their head cutter.

The shirts don't cut themselves...

Budd shirts is now closed for refurbishment until the end of August. On a similar note Paxton and Whitfield is also closed for refurbishment and C & J new flagship store in Jermyn Street has now opened (the other store will remain open).

My father swears by Budd RTW shirts.

I can't comment on the fit overly, although he likes a little space in his shirts.

What I can say is that they are good quality - he's had many of his for over 10 years.

The one in the Burlington Arcade will stay open?

I was only aware of one in the Piccadilly Arcade which was the one I was referring to. All the contents had been cleared by Tuesday and the notice said they were closed for August.
