Why the lack of MTM/bespoke casual shirts? - Page 3

post #31 of 45
A designer shirt isn't more than the sum of its parts. It's not like BoO or any other brand has some special magic that makes it fit better than a custom, identical shirt. That said, it's a pain to get MTM done, and there's much to be said for instant gratification.

What vashin was saying that making a BoO shirt isn't as simple as taking in the chest and shortening it. Although lot of forum members seem to think any shirt that is short is a BoO lookalike. I dunno

I know that, but I don't think that there's something especially magic about BOO that any decent tailor couldn't replicated if working off one of their shirts. The question should be 'should I do this' not 'can it be done'.

yea what he said, I'm not very coherent atm. Not enough coffee and too much econometrics. Also instant gratification is pretty important too.

Is there really that much that goes into a shirt?

What if Thick as Thieves started doing casual MTM shirts? I trust Jason to choose tasteful but interesting details, just as he did with the TaT suits, TaT cardi, and TaT x Kent Wang dress shirts. Anyone else think that could be good?

If they were around $100 sure, but if they came it any higher price then it wouldn't really be worth it. The whole idea here is cheap alternatives.

well I think he is making some RTW shirts that are about the $100 range. Not sure if they're ready yet though

Then again, i don't believe TaT/Kent Wang would be casual shirts as you guys are talking about. Probably more sartorial suiting type deals with the occasional simple shirt in a thicker oxford material

And that's why you wear boring-ass shirts. Fine. We get it. In fact, we wear boring-ass shirts here, too, but we actually like to change it up a bit instead of dressing like 45 year-old Bob in accounting who's got the 2.3 kids, a wife, and a delicious mortgage.

Out of the woodwork they come...

I'll chime in as I'm the pet Lobster. Jas has been toying around with clean, simple white shirts that would be priced around the $100 mark. Right now it's a lot about numbers, i.e. whether to use a better but slightly more expensive fabric, keep it RTW or MTM, etc. Going full MTM just seems like a headache as most shirts with the aesthetic Jas is going for fit me just fine; it'd also add more to the pricetag. I'll let him know about this thread so he can chime in but maybe an offering of RTW at 100 and MTM at 125 or whatever would help both sides.

Oh, and this wouldn't be happening until sometime this spring.

Oddball pockets are fine, but I could do without epaulets on everything.

I'm trying hard to find any possible way to make a decent bespoke casual shirt happen. So far the best option I can find is to fly to somewhere like Italy to buy shirtings myself and take them to my tailor. There has to be a better way...
