Folded Up Shirt P0rn - Page 288

post #4306 of 4504

Hi guys,

 

Carl from CEGO just sent me a teaser of my new shirts that are ready to be shipped to Europe.

 

The left one is in zendaline bigstar[1].gif

 

Collards are respectively Keaton and Kiton.

It was spectacular! Complete with fashion plates of the period. Looks like a great place to have a shirt made, but I think I'll wear these a few times before I decide if I need to make any changes.

Never understood why someone would pay so much for Charvet RTW or MTM.

Curiosity, experience (e.g. visiting the cloth room), unable to visit Paris twice for bespoke and etc.

As a souvenir I can kinda understand.

They don't have any special cloths do they? Like they don't have their own mills or anything, right?

I have one MTM shirt from years ago and while the construction is certainly nice, it's not as if you can't find that quality on bespoke at a fraction of the price.

From what I read of the Charvet history, it sounded like the Colban family was a supplier to Charvet. Does anyone know if the Colban family is also in the mill business?

The cloths are unmarked so I don't know their origin.

I think the shirts can be of value if they have a cloth you can't find elsewhere. I recall they had a good selection of voiles. Having full bolts are useful if there is an unusual pattern because you can drape it over yourself.

Otherwise, I agree that Charvet is expensive for what it is.
