    True. Just wish shirtmakers went out of their way to make sure the shirt was perfect and not leave it up to the customer. I'm not an expert fitter - my shirts obviously fit reasonably well and to my untrained eye seem OK but I'm sure improvements can be made. 8k for 8 shirts is really steep. regardless of how much money you have.
    I heard that you also had to buy all the same style, like all button downs. You'd have to be a Foo to enjoy that [​IMG]

    That is a product of the liquidity bubble. I'd have a hard time paying more than 5-600 for a shirt. For $600 per shirt, one should be able to get a beautiful bespoke shirt that fits great and is construction the best possible unless you are looking for some freaky cotton that is rare or insanely fine.

    No it doesn't, unless you're the sort of person willing to buy an initial 8 shirts at $1k per.

    Any way you slice that cake, $1000/shirt is bananas.

    Kabbaz is a really nice guy and is actually extremely articulate.
