Charvet have too short sleeves
H&K in sea island for a white shirt
Those Budds did look nice. Unfortunately, limited size selection and the sizes they do have are 2 inches too short in the sleeve.
I would imagine if he's spending that amount of money on ONE shirt, which he wants to be his best, trying the shirt on would be a must.
If you're in NY, just go to Bergdorf's men's store. You won't have any problem finding what you're looking for, I'm sure.
I would suggest Robert Talbott Estate shirts. They are on par with Borelli in terms of quality IMHO. They feature double stack mother of pearl buttons, side gussets, and pattern matching. They only do made to measure however, with prices between $325 and $425. These are shirts that don't seem to get mentioned on this board, but having seen a finished one in person, I can attest to their high quality.
I really appreciate all of the recommendations. After stopping by T&A and Bergdorf Goodman this afternoon, I decided to purchase a Charvet, which fit perfectly (short sleeves and all). I am really happy with it. What would I have done without Styleforum (and its recommendations to track down threads on AskAndy)? You guys make this an amazing resource. Newbies like myself can't thank you enough.
Good choice. Hard to beat Charvet for a white shirt.
Those BG Charvet are cut for the US marketplace, right? I mean, they aren't tapered.
I think that's right. It has a more tailored fit than the other shirts I own, but it is not tapered so far as I can tell. I don't know if the Charvets for the French market are different.
No one mentioned Carl?
The CEGO gods are not smiling upon us
try thomas pink (140$)
I thought about it, but given the time he had, the shirt had to fit almost perfectly from the get-go. I'm sure CEGO could have a shirt in time, but what if it needed some tweaking...
Junk. Especially at that price.
i collect three more of my nine-odd dollar shirts from the vietnamese tailor tomorrow. pretty happy with the first one, hope these turn out. i think id take 15.55 of them over one thomas pink
Charvet is a great choice. The fabrics are wonderful.
