Perhaps I've been going about it with PL all wrong, and I should just get the cheaper cloths and not bother with unfused collars/cuffs.
I did two shirts from PL for 280, they are what they are. They fit alright but there's an issue of the poor stitching when my dad was helping me out iron and he noticed that it was really tough to iron certain areas of the shirt, with that in mind i went to AC.
I actually made another post on AC. I went to the one in the Peninsula, I'm in my mid 20's but I look like I'm 19, but they still were very nice and helped me out. I ordered the 3 shirt minimum, 2 @ their house fabrics (like $9xx) and one Thomas Mason for meeting bosses (18xx). To be honest, it's not a big difference if you're washing your shirts all the time. Anyway, they were extremely accommodating as they were a little bit old fashioned and I kept insisting to have a slimmer fit. I also took many fittings to get an extreme spread collar (like Thomas Pink) after I saw a pic of an AC shirt with that collar in a Tumblr. I actually went so many times that I felt bad, but the guy to my surprise said "Nonsense, it's your first order we need to get it right!"
So long story short, for 900 something, I would just go to AC and make shirts as opposed to going to PL for 650. You're gonna get one-on-one attention in a nicely lit shop with great service!
