Because he is located out of the CBD his prices are also much lower, starting at around the $200 mark. He stocks a huge range of exceptional fabrics from England, Italy and Switzerland. You will be spoilt for choice and anything else will become totally unwearable afterwards. His margins are ridiculously low but he refuses to compromise on quality and construction. I (and several others here) prefer them over $600+ shirts from the likes of Borrelli, Kiton, Brioni etc (whether MTM or RTW) in terms of fit, construction and fabric.
ps what do you mean by a non-business 'dress' shirt? Do you mean for black tie? Whatever you have in mind - casual, business, formal dress shirtings - Charles will have it all. Of course, because it is bespoke it is guaranteed to fit you perfectly.
I noticed it was a quick reply as well ... ok so a bit of confusion from what I said - what I meant by NON-business was like, not to be worn with a tie - like open collar - can be worn either with jeans or nice pants. Does that make sense? I'm new to the whole "fashion" scene (or should I rephrase - actually taking interest in what I'm wearing) - so sorry for the ignorance ... but how do I go about going to a Bespoke Tailer. Do I make an appointment? Call up? Just turn up? and so I can ask for any pattern and they will have it? (e.g. if I wanted Pink Striped).
Oh and on a side note, do you purchase AE's etc. online, or do you know of any local brands for shoes?
