Best Shirting (Bespoke or MTM) in Greater Boston?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi, all,

 

New to the forum, so forgive me if this is the wrong section for this query, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a good bespoke shirtmaker or very competent mtm shirtmaker in/around Boston.

 

I understand Sordillo's Tailors makes shirts, though I have yet to determine whether they are truly bespoke or just mtm, how nice they are, etc.

 

If anyone has had experiences with Sordillo's shirts, please share. I was quoted $175 per shirt for basic fabrics and a mere two shirt minimum (with a buy 4 get 5th free kind of deal also on offer), which would be a steal if they are true bespoke or even reliably high-quality mtm.

 

Thanks!

I haven't tried them, but a friend uses Dege & Skinner and likes them. They visit Boston several times a year.

Napolisumisura also visits, although again, I haven't tried their shirts.

Not sure if they visit Boston, but Ascot Chang tours through the US twice a year. I've been using them for a few years now and like their work. Starting price is around $175, but the good stuff mostly starts at $200. Supposedly the minimum for your first order is something like four shirts (IIRC), but I asked if they could do three and they agreed. I find Mr. Nelson Chin (the person who does their tours) to be a better fitter than some of their store associates.

Unfortunately, their website is down right now, but here is their URL

Only problem with going with a traveling tailor: it may take you a while to get your first order. There's the measuring, then the wearing and washing of your first shirt, then the fitting six months later, then possible adjustments before your final delivery. It may take up to a year to really dial in on that perfect fit, but once it's done, subsequent orders are easy and made straight to finish.

Arthur at Boline in Norwell is the only real shirtmaker in Boston. Good guy.
