Long time reader, first time poster. Great thread everyone.
Wondering if anyone had any success using any of the "internet tailors" or traveling shirtmakers in getting good shirts made. My Tailor/Modern Tailor/Jantzen/Etc.
Trying to find a proper shirt solution.
Jump The Gun has good patterns and awesome service (love their Harringtons), but lots of poly cotton and some of the fabrics are pretty flimsy. I like them for what they are but at $100+ to get them stateside, they don’t match the cost.
Mikkel Rude, also poly cotton, find the collars a bit silly and don’t like that the pocket isn’t pattern matched.
DNA groove I haven’t tried, the collars are too gigantic for me.
So I was thinking for the cost of importing shirts by many of these cult focused shops, I could probably get a shirt made with all the details for the same price or less. But I know many shirt makers are limited in what they can do (or just stubborn). So anyone have a good experience getting shirts made in “the style”? Nice three finger button down, back collar button, sewn in pleat, good selection of checks/gingham/oxfords/stripes/etc?
Thanks for any suggestions.
