    No, they made the shirt for Prince William's wedding - which I assume was bespoke.

    They're actually a small bespoke boutique that branched out into RTW. Still does a lot of custom work (shirts and soft tailored jackets).

    Between those with big lats, those with long arms, those who want more room, etc... we will explore their willingness to do an MTO/MTM program with us. Would you guys be interested even if you have to wait two months for your shirts and pay extra (it costs more to buy one shirt length of fabric than a full roll)?

    Greg - I would be interested, depending on how much the upcharge will be. Would this be similar to Formosa where you guys organize something in NYC and do fittings?

    I am happy to wait a couple of months for such spectacular shirts. Well worth it.

    I am 6'3 so that is the rub. I haven't found any off the rack shirts to work and I am just sad to be missing out on the splendor that is Inglese. Besides the sleeve length, the couple I tried were the perfect shirt.

    Luckily, there is plenty of other NMWA product for me to rock.

    To answer your question, I never met a shirt off the peg that fit me, so even superlative handwork is not enough to sweeten the deal. If that quality could be had but with MTM functionality, that would be great. Hell, bring the whole bespoke operation over. [​IMG]

    Yes to wait and upcharge depending on how much. Given the like-mindedness around here, we could probably organize a group fabric buy to help with cost.

    I'd be surprised if you all want to get a MTM shirt in the same fabric - but yeah that would bring the cost down a bit

    I read on here that one should only wear light blue shirts, and only dark brown jackets, and only mid grey trousers, and only brown Alden wingtips on the Plaza last, so it shouldn't be too hard.
