Getting 6 MTM shirts other than white and blue, what color and style should my other 4 shirts be - Page 2

Collar choice has a connection to face shape. If unsure what collar to wear and not of very unusual measurements, get some RTW shirts first and seek visual feedback. Collar height and length of points also matter. Anyway, 6 MTM shirts without knowing what looks best is asking for trouble. 4 sounds like a reasonable ceiling if insistent on MTM.

If you are going to branch into MTM for the first time, this is dead on. There's a lot more going on in the MTM process than there is for RTW. I don't think getting 6 MTM shirts quickly is necessarily a bad thing, but you should at least do a trial run with one shirt to allow the shirtmaker to tweak your pattern and adjust any details such as collar shape / size. Wear it and wash it a few times and see how it holds up. Once they've nailed your pattern and you know what looks good on you, you can start placing higher volume orders.

Thanks for the response, but the problem with only getting one is their MTMs are 200 bucks a pop, but they have a special for 6 shirts for $400. Doesn't really make sense to only get one. I am a big dude 6'3 235 athletic, but i have a regular oval face not particularly angular or anything

Right. You order six and ask them to make you a trial shirt first so that various adjustments can be made for the next five.

Also, $200 per shirt and 6 for $400 sounds extremely odd to me. That's a 2/3 discount per shirt.
