Ten minutes later, I went to check. The dryer was like a furnace. The shirts were almost too hot to touch. Naturally, they shrank. The sleeves were now about 3cm too short.

I went back to my tailor. "No problems", he said, "I don't cut off the excess length. It's still inside the cuff." He lengthened them again. Another $30 apiece.

Still way too short.

Total cost $510. Great shirts, but the sleeves are too short for me.

Might fit your wifey now.

Anyone wanna buy three great Ballantyne business shirts? Made in U.E. (whatever that means). Collar 40cm, sleeves probably around 84cm. One in white, one with extra-fine blue and white vertical stripes, the third with slightly thicker blue and white stripes. Semi-spread collars, barrel cuffs. Unworn, but have been washed and tumble dried for your convenience.

Made in Portugal, right? So would be União Européia

Interesting parting shot in their email...

Although we appreciate the Edward Green aesthetics and the history the company has, it has become clear that we cannot continue to work with them. This decision was based on our core values and our company philosophy.

very interesting indeed.

as a side note, does anyone have any success stories of completely replacing their iron with a steamer? the downside I'd anticipate from steamers is not being able to starch collars (or cuffs)

There's always the in between approach and getting a steam generator iron.

Has anyone got a copy of 'The Parisian Gentleman'? Bought it and yet to read, although looks pretty good quickly flicking through.

I'm off to Sydney for an OH fitting shortly, I've got a pair of jeans that need tapering, are there any recommendations on who's good at working this type of magic in the city centre?

I'll hazard a guess that it could be to do with the price hikes or different US prices.

Hey guys, this will be my first post so i thought  ill introduce myself as part of the australian community.
Im a 26 years old, melbourne based, photographer and video producer.

I actually bit the bullet last November to get myself a bespoke suit made, and after a couple of months of research chose Charles Maimone as my tailor of choice thanks to the information in part provided here.

Ive gone for my first fitting and awaiting my second fitting which is scheduled sometime next month. Im actually surprised that for such a respected tailor there wasnt more information or photos provided of his work so once the suit is made ill be sure to post mine and my review of it all.

In case anyones wondering, the cloth is from holland and sherry, and i chose to get a double breasted, dark navy with pinstripes. I opted for the "kingsman" look for my first bespoke suit and ive been buying accessories left right and center to have every last detail accounted for - Sporting a tissot CHEMIN DES TOURELLES AUTOMATIC GENT watch, pair of loake churchills, swarovski cufflinks, and the shirt i had made using Mtailor app which im quite happy with, tie and tie clip from TM lewin.

Below was a photo i took during my first fitting. Lighting inside isnt the greatest so the colour doesnt come up but im excited as hell to get it.

Welcome aboard Ransyn, and thanks for sharing your experience.

Would be great to see the finished product and your thoughts on the process.
