-High quality photos showing the elements of a shirt (the cuff, the collar, the pocket etc), to discern the differences between a type and another

-Some informative guides to use (about how to take measures on the body, as an instance)

-Informative details about the fabrics: many sites don't have them, they don't show where the fabric is produced, and don't provide info about the yarn, the weaving.

- Eye-catching logo, menus and texts.

Simple clear information about the fabric on offer does seem to be missing on a few sites.  The fabric photos on proper cloth are really good and the 3D rendered shirt graphic is on the right side of the uncanny valley.

Proper cloth - good 3D rendering

Bivolino / Marks and Spencers - poor 3D rendering

I have ordered from Lib&Stael (ls-chemise.com) and Saint-Sens, and wasn't overly impressed although they are correctly made. Someone told me that one of them (I don't remember which one) is made in china, and the other one by C2S in France (C2S = Chemiserie des Deux-Sèvres).

Nialma is the best bang for the buck for high quality fabric shirts IMO... the 4 for 3 deal is the best around for Thomas Mason fabric

Studying all the online mtm merchants, this is the same conclusion I've reached. Much better $/value than proper cloth IMO.

Nialma, rather infamously, had more socks than the Muppet Show at one point. If memory serves, they were banned from advertising on SF a few years back, after a particularly vigorous wave of sock-spam bombardment. Accordingly, my trust in the company has never inspired me to try it out.

I've heard mixed reviews from real customers (or, at least, people with triple-digit post counts who I was reasonably sure were human). To be fair, at least a few of those reviews seemed glowing.

Can't get their site to work in my web browser.  Slightly annoying.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Luxire yet. They have a huge affiliate thread here on SF:

I find Belisario shirts to be great. The best online MTM service online. The fabric selection is pretty big, and the amount of handwork one can have done is really nice. They are also really good with customizing already made patterns and collars.

Its made in italy, Pescara. Nice and fast customer service.

And it doesn't hurt that their website is good, which can not be said on all the above mentioned.
