I spent several months living in Mumbai and felt like I'd happened upon a pretty good shirt tailor in Kachins -- not the one in Tardeo, the one in Bandra -- and ordered quite a few (about 20). I happened upon your and globetrotter's comments on Maharaja's at the Taj recently, and feel like a complete doltz for having missed these threads while living there (I recently relocated).
Can you share your feedback on the shirts and what you've like about them -- fabric, fit, etc.? Also, you'd mentioned in one of your posts that you'd post pictures of the shirts. If you have them, I'd love to see them.
Maharaja's doesn't courier (or so they say), so I'm going to need to find alternatives. Suggestions are welcome.

As for shirts, I heard there are a couple of good tailors in Khan Mkt, but if you really want best quality go to Maharaja's Shirtmaker in the Taj Mahal Hotel, Bombay. I got five fantastic Egyptian cotton/MOP button shirts for about $42/each and have another five being made as we speak. I still need to post them up in the folded-up shirt porn thread.
