Thanks. These are nice shirts. I actually live in Australia and had these shirts made up for a customer of mine. The quality is really good. They primarily do an unfused collar and cuffs for shirts but do fusing on the request of the customer. The stitching is good, machine made, single needle, french seams - not as fine as some makers - but only a couple of stitches per inch below some of the nice Italian or English SIC brands. The fabric selection is quite broad and they purchase fabric from Albini, Tessitura Monti, Somelos, Grandi & Rubinelli. They have a pretty good collar selection too, in that they probably do five or so spread collars and about as many point collars. Their prices start at about $100 and normally add a surcharge for any orders below three or four shirts but some periodically they waive this fee or have another special like buy three get one free.

It is a standard Brooks Brothers collar. I think they call it English spread.

The solid white is a cotton royal oxford, the blue with white stripe third from the left is a cotton end on end. I'm not sure about the other two, I think they're just basic super 100s cotton or something like that. Something pretty standard. They're from the Brooks Brothers shirting books, not the Thomas Mason books.

These all ranged in price from between 175 and 225 I think, but I always take advantage of the MTM event trunk shows, which I believe this fall was a 40 percent discount. In the past it's been buy at least three shirts and get 25-30% off, and if you come during the trunk show days there is an additional discount. They always have an event in the fall and an event in the spring.

Do they actually take your measurements? How is their MTM program different from their online make your shirt offering?I'd like to see pictures of shirts worn if you have any.

Yes they take your measurements in the store just like any MTM shirtmaker does. I'll work on the pictures. I'm not sure if every Brooks Brothers store has a MTM specialist, but the big stores provide full MTM service for shirts and tailored clothing. I believe posters have discussed the gentleman at the Madison Ave store who runs their MTM department. I also learned that Brooks Brothers even has a custom tie program. The shirts are made in South Carolina.

Just received a blue chambray shirt made by New England Shirt Company via David Wood in Portland, Maine. I believe it was made specially for David Wood.

This is my first experience with a New England Shirt Company product, and I'm mightily impressed. Beautiful fabric, beefy buttons, nice styling.

That is a great discount. I ordered several shirts through the MTM program several years ago. I think I received one free after ordering 5.
