I've heard that Raffa at Yonge Eglinton does some pretty nice tailoring, I've yet to check it out myself though.

Could be - I don't go north of Bloor for any reason though.

Anyone on here visited James VII on Richmond? http://www.jamesvii.com

- I am the owner. If any of my customers are on here, hopefully they can say something (positive or negative)

I'm curious too. 199 for 3 custom fitted shirts sounds really good but wondering if anyone has any feedback about the quality of the final product. I've never had a shirt tailored from scratch.

At these prices I can't go lower as that is already a great deal. I will put it out there, the first person to contact me I will make them a free Prestige dress shirt. Only rules to this are you have to be in Toronto (so you can get fitted in the showroom) and you have to post telling everyone about it. My email and phone number are on the site or you can reply to this thread. Cheers, Mike ----------------------- www.jamesvii.com

Do you make the shirts yourself or do you send them out? If the latter, are your shirts made in Canada or overseas?

Our factories are located in India. Our quality is top-notch and we have complete control from milling to final product. Prior to launching this company I personal sourced from factories from all sides of the globe and found this is by far the best price / quality mix out there.

Mike, thanks again for the generous offer.

If any members have any questions that they would like me to ask Mike, please let me know. I hope to meet with Mike tomorrow.

We'll keep you posted.

Gents, I'm a bit tied up at work at the moment but I wanted to let you know that I met with Mike earlier this week. On the whole I was pretty impressed. In terms of cost Mike seems to be aiming for that sweet spot between Maxwell's and Harry Rosen so that you get maximum value for your dollar. That's probably in-line with what most of us want. There was a good selection of fabrics but not as many as I would have hoped for but that's probably because I am pretty picky. That said, there was enough of a selection that you could cover the basics pretty easily with Mike's selection. Some of the herringbone and striped fabrics are particularly nice. I choose a striped fabric with french cuffs. If you want a blue and green check shirt, you're out of luck. As Mike said, the production is done in India with Mike taking measurements in his showroom (which is quite nice-he has drinks on hand). The showroom is not a store front-it is on the second floor of 73 Richmond Street West and Mike has to buzz up so you won't be able to see it from street level. In what Mike told me he has a high rate of satisfaction and I could tell from talking to him that he takes pride in what he does and would go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. On my initial inspection the quality of the shirts seemed to be quite good and at least as good as the shirts I have from Harry Rosen so I have no qualms with the use of a factory in India. Mike mentioned that he spent a great deal of time in sourcing the factory he currently uses but I will leave that to him to describe if he wishes to do so. From what I have seen I think Mike is definitely worth a go and you should ring him and at least take a quick look at his wares. I will write a longer post when I receive the shirt in a couple of weeks and on the weekend when I have more time.
