    Gents - getting my OTR shirts tailored (I have weird measurements) is no longer a good option for me, so I'm thinking about going the online MTM route. However, the market seems to be saturated with options. I've searched the forums, and it looks like a lot of the recommendations are from a couple years ago.

    I'm looking for good quality fabrics (preference for heavier Thomas Mason cloth), white mother of pearl buttons, and decent shirt construction. Also, my shirts only seem to last around 6 months, so I'm probably looking for a price range around $100-$200 per.

    Any suggestions for a good site that fits those preferences?

    Did NiAlma go out of business? After reading the reviews, it looks like they're exactly what I'm looking for.

    What are you doing to them?! Or do you have a small rotation.

    I try to keep a 3-4 week rotation, but they keep tearing at the elbow (not always the same elbow).

    If your measurements are that weird, you should order from someone who can measure you and stand behind their work.
    I am assuming you have seen the numerous disasters that have been posted in the past.

    I haven't really noticed any disasters - most of the reviews have been pretty favorable. I had one shirt made by a shop in my area, but it cost way more than online MTM, and they still sent the work overseas.

    I'm not sure how weird my measurements are (14" neck, 39" chest, 30" waist), but my tailored OTR shirts always fit well.

    I've been reading a lot of reviews lately, and I've narrowed my choices down to:
    - Cottonwork
    - Deo Veritas
    - Proper Cloth
    - Nialma's ghost

    Any suggestions/reasons on which is the better site to use?
