It's not mine to copy. That was written a two years ago from some menswear blog. I do offer everything on that list of " must haves", except for the tension thread because my shirt maker says it's a crock of shit and any real shirt maker would never use such a thing. Personally, I disagree but I am not shelling out the cash for the machine and thread.
I do hope everyone reads that just to get a better idea of what I do offer and what I have been harping on for years.
I know a lot of people still don't really give two shits about all the fine details but I do and that's the product I am making.
Get all of those things done right including the hand sewn monograms is a true thing of beauty. Another option, I offer is, if you want you can have an extra collar made with a set of extra cuffs.
This is very old school.
I believe, if you can find someone that offers all these services ( besides me) your shirt will start about $250.00 and go up from there depending on the fabric. More than likely you should drop about $350 to $400.00
This is of course for a dress shirt. A casual shirt doesn't need all of these bells and whistle. I think " jacket sleeves and a little hand sewing will be enough. At the minimum " Jacket sleeves".
You simply will not want to go back once you try it. The range of motion, drape, and comfort are just there.
Sweater ad shirt updates-
Sweaters leave this week and some shirts leave this week. Please be patient. I am more frustrated than all of you combined. The wait will be worth it.
Nik might post his MTM shirt and show some of the details. I hope he does. I spoke with him over the phone today and he was very happy. He is the first to have " jacket sleeves" from me.
I am letting everyone know now-
I am doing a flannel pant( charcoal) run and a wool/mohair ( navy) trouser I need 20 to 25 pieces per style. That means either enzo or predator. That's the minimum. The fabric is from Vitale Barberis
The pants $130.00 dollars not including the rewards discount. The pants are a fucking steal. I will post pics on my blog as well as in a general newsletter and a rewards members newsletter.
Hopefully, We make the numbers.
I am leaving this week to Ohio to tie up the loose ends and get the fabric count. Those shirts will be ready to ship sometime in January. The sooner the orders get in the sooner I will have them made.
I also am waiting for scarf pictures. The scarves are finished. They are all woven wool cashmere blends. The scarves were loomed on old wooden shuttle looms in Italy. It's very rare and very special.
The first round of pictures were to muted so I am having them reshoot.
They will make PERFECT holiday gifts for both men and women.
