Bespoke shirts online for 39 dollars! Ergoni.com - Page 2

post #16 of 66
127.72, I was referring to the Ergoni shirts, not Land's End.

I just tried sending an email to inquire about delivery time, and got a delivery failure: "mailbox disabled". Not a good sign.

Not a good sign.

^ 2nd. I also set-up an account (very simple) and went to there sizing section. There are just "four measurements" required but other optional measurements are available including 3 different diagrams regarding body shape. Pretty cool stuff if you ask me (and if it works). I'm really interested to see member experiences with this place. For the price, I might just have to roll the dice.

The price difference between this and Jantzen is negligible, they use fewer measuring points, and the fabric selection is less than minimal. If they could guarantee faster delivery and/or better customer service response, that would be one thing, but lacking that, I don't see why it's even worth trying.

i was quite curious as you can imagine. I still can not figure out how Jantzen makes money using HK labor offering so many bells and wistles with out upcharges.

the measurement softwear is based on a program developed in conjunction with UNC and the US Army. they wanted to come up with a way to make unifroms to size rather then having so many sizes in stock. factories were or are set up to use computerized cutting equipment.
At least this is my assumption based on what I could figure out from their information.

This is the same softwear that lands end uses for their custom shirt program. I think Paul Fredricks may also be using this program.


What bothered me about their site was how vague it all seemed. I wanted to see how to take the measurements on the second section, but there were no diagrams. no mention of lead times. which asian countries were they made in.
100/2 and 140/2 from china are OK but a little mushy.IMO.

I am curious to see the results as well.

Maybe they're subsidized by the government to help HK maintain their profile in the worldwide bespoke (er, MTM) tailoring market. A loss leader, so to speak.

anyone know how long it takes for the shirts to come in? Please do give us a report, those of you who have ordered...I'm very tempted by this student friendly deal

I just got one. Took two weeks. Looks nice; don't have time to mess with it right now. Later... I only have time to take a couple of photos. I will wash it and report on fit later, although a very quick preliminary test is good - better than the two Lands End custom shirts I have. It's the cheaper of the two lines. There's an odd thing with the sleeve buttons, which are placed at either end of the whatsit. A single cuff meant to be worn with links and converted on the cheap? Beats me. Anyway, you can't tell when it's buttoned, so who cares. The tail is only about 1-1.5" longer than the front, so at first I thought I'd bought a camp shirt. After I've laundered and worn the thing a few times I will have a better idea of whether or not it was a good investment. I don't think it's any great example of the shirtmakers' art, but for $39 it looks pretty decent.

I would be interested to hear about quality, fit and slection of fabrics. I went on the site and could not look at the fabric selection. I have bought from House of Salgado in Toronto, great shirts, luxurious fabrics, but pricey 150 CAD a shirt 6-8wks. I have also bought from Maxwells, I ordered 3 shirts and only like one, 65 CAD, so so quality.
Cheers,
D

Please do let us know how it turns out after you wash/wear it.

Washed it in warm water and allowed it ten minutes in the dryer (set on low) with some other stuff before yanking it out and hanging it. Ironed up nicely. Wore it again - no problems. Looks good. I like it better than the two Lands End customs I have.

I'll probably try Ergoni again.

The cuff you have is a 'convertible' cuff, meant to be buttoned or worn with links. They were more common on US RTW dress shirts in the 60s. The double buttons allow you to adjust the shirt to the size of your wrist. The check on your collar could have been done more neatly...the line of the fabric is bowing out at the collar edge.

39 dollars seems expensive.
