It's never needless.

The RTW made-in-Italy Oxxford shirts carried at Saks are just decent, and overpriced. The buttonholes are done decently by hand, but some of the machine stitching seems a little crude, price and company reputation considered. The yApre' shirts made by IS are also decent...but overpriced. If you're willing to go to a shirtmaker besides a true custom atelier, such as IS/Oxxford MTM, Ike Behar has a "custom" program with quite a few good fabrics(including 200s) and prices within your desired range. This program has no minimum. The customer has the option of buying his pattern for $500. Few experiences can stack up to having true custom shirts made. Paris-based Lanvin makes excellent custom shirts with no minimum order. They will give you all the fittings you need. However, I don't think that they normally travel to meet clients.

Foxx, I thought you did MTM Borrelli already. How would MTM Oxxford be an improvement? I would think true bespoke would be the logical next step. AlanC (confirmed wearer of RTW )

I can remember my father scraping the 'made in japan' from a pair of pliers he had mistakenly thought was made in the USA.
