    Yes, I'm living in Sweden so I ordered the shirts online. The online ordering allows you to enter measurements take off a shirt. I do have a number of MTM shirts I have been measured for and so I took the measurements off the best fitting shirt I have. Worked great for me.

    But I have also been in touch with the company and it is possible to visit them in Italy and get measured. I'm planning to do that later this year as I am going to Italy for business anyway.



    Yes, the shirts I ordered all have the French collar (I have so far ordered three shirts, I'm holding off ordering more until I have visited them).

    Sounds like I have to try it out! What stiffness do you recommend for the collar and cuffs, regular or soft?

    Also, do you know if the shirts are made in Italy?
    The MTM shirtmaker I plan to go to for over a year now starts at 129€ and will charge up to 200+€ depending on the fabric and options chosen, but I have to say I prefer to go see someone who can professionally measure myself and disucss options anyways.
    Would be highly interested in a travel blog though.

    I have ordered soft collars on all my shirts so far and couldn't be happier with them.

    This is a superlative thread, one of the best in Style Forum. Once in a while however, shirts could be displayed as in Yoox.
    Thanks.

    I will never understand why some people like to have two button cuffs, to me it's plain annoying.
