Thanks for the heads up.

Pricing is what? About EUR 400?

But I'm not going to try two new shirtmakers at once.... I'm not going to try two new shirtmakers at once... I'm not going to try two new shirtmakers at once... I might be interested.

Hi, depending on fabric and extras like hand-sewn buttonholes and monograms, his shirts start from a lot less than EUR 400. But, with a 300s fabric and handmade extras the price could reach EUR 650+. He offers a fine shirt for a wide range of (bespoke!) budgets.

Last year, his starting price was about 270 euros

Thanks guys. That's not bad at all.

She's the only London maker I'd consider but at 400 pounds per shirt with something like a 4 shirt minimum, no thanks.

I think I got a good non-recommendation recommendation on LL and I'll travel to Paris to do the fittings when she visits there.

Wow - she's that expensive?? No love for Budd, T&A, or the others?

I assume you're referring to Mary Frittolini - she seems pretty well-regarded by Alden.

Andreyb poasted some Budd pics which showed the same sloppy construction I found on the Harvie & Hudson shirts I ordered. The high minimum orders and, at best, mixed reviews on the forums have lead me to write off Jermyn Street / Savile Row for shirts.

I prefer something trim and I can't be in the same room as a Ringhart swatch book without throwing up - hence my looking south.

Emma Willis is really that good!?

Don't really know - the price has put me off.

Promising signs - offers Alumo cloth (which, to be fair, some others now do as well), her ties are ade by Drakes so good taste, the construction quality of the bespoke shirts I saw in the shop seemed very good and she's easy on the eyes.

So not quite scientific.

Francesca and Mimmo are really cool. Was a nice meeting all around.

Maybe the most pleasant surprise - the price. With EUR @ 1.27, not any more expensive than Geneva.

That's good to hear. I hope you'll post pics - muslin fittings, right?
post #14 of 17
Yes - there will be a 'prova-type' made. Though I think they do it in scraps of actual shirting as opposed to muslin (not that it really makes a difference).

Pretty fast turnaround. I said I'd probably be in Rome in April and they said I'll have the shirts before that. I think they're here next in Jan.

Great to hear that you had a recommendation for Emma Willis.  I hope you managed to find a bespoke shirt that fits your spec.

 

Just to let you know that our Bespoke shirts actually start at £280 not as high as £400!! and the minimum order is 3 shirts and made in our Gloucester factory.
