If that's the case, I'd just treat it like a regular blue bengal stripe shirt.

Thanks bro. Didn't want to see my $$ be thrown in the garbage, but will actually buy something new now. You see always go with the classic and boring way (because you will always do right)

I like 'em. Looks slightly more elegant than my, otherwise rather similar, Chiltern. But not too elegant (*cough*Tetbury*cough*) for the casual vibe.

I think this sums up how entirely you have missed the point, which was to make a comparison, not to try and objectively determine which shirt maker will be the best. Obviously, since it was done, it can be done.
You are right in that a reason people move to custom clothing can be that they want a greater level of control over fit and form. Over the last year or so I have dabbled in this for suits, shirts, and shoes. As far as suitings go, I really don't ever want to go back to RTW. My MTM shoe experience was awesome and I would really like to move that forward to the full monty.
While I really like my Hamilton bespoke shirts which certainly ended up comparable to the other luxury options available, they are a bit pricy. Through the forum, other options have presented themselves which may end up being a better value. Barba/Borelli/Finamore from shop the finest certainly comes to mind as Hamilton retails in the same range as those three. From Carl's website his average price also seems more economical. Luxire is circumspect, but they've been putting a lot out there and I'm willing to listen to the experiences of others. Either way, the question was intended for anyone who has experience with any of the RTW and custom offerings out there, i.e. who has handled them and can make a comparisson.
If you've ordered from CEGO or Luxire and can say something, that's great and I would love to hear about it. Otherwise though, please refrain from talking out your ass. It is unhelpful.

Seen Carl's shirts in person. Own Luxire shirts. Have owned Finamore and Borelli. Have read a decent amount about Hamilton. No ass talking, tits. That said, I still think you're diving into muddy waters trying to make sweeping comparisons. Either way, hope you find whatever it is you're looking for.

Haha, Foxxy I'm far from saying that bespoke is the only option or that it is vastly superior. As you seem to have alluded to, you have neither the patience nor the want to go through the process of bespoke. Therein lies a reason why RTW is superior for you, amongst others I'm sure.

What I was trying to argue was that an objective feature/aspect/detail is needed to compare any of them when the end products vary so much.

That's awesome. I still think it would be ever so helpful if you were willing to talk about their similarities and differences rather than getting caught up in the difficulty of trying to rank them against each other. These are two separate things and as I've said, I'm uninterested in the latter. That the end products vary so much should provide a mountain of opportunity to do such a thing without having to worry about having to construct a ranking. Thank you though. I hope someone is capable of getting and addressing this point.

Thanks, I saw these in a shop window and was thinking of getting them. Now I will.

By the way, we all could have told you to skip your first choice with the red soles, but you just had to be contrary...

Of course! : ) I might buy those back in spring, though. I liked them.

As for the elasticated cuff, it is located in a perfect position just below the joint . It keeps them tight , fingers right to top, and keeps them from riding up ( as I have found with my other un elasticated pairs) I don't have to keep pushing them down - you know, the push down in between the fingers with the other hand's in between the fingers movement. smile.gif
As for the aesthetics of the elasticated cuff, It doesn't really notice that much when their on anyway. I'm really happy with it.


Mine in dark tan came in. Exquisite. Highly recommended & their sizing advice was accurate.
