Hello, sorry if this is previously posted but I couldn't find it anywhere.

I'm gearing up to buy some custom made dress shirts, and my friend is suggesting BB, though I feel that there must be better quality with a personal business like Cega or T&A. I'm looking for a slim-fitting shirt of very high quality fabric, in the several hundred per shirt range. Any comments or advice helpful. Thank you.

I'm very happy with the service and shirts I've gotten from CEGO, and for the finest fabrics, that's the price range you're looking at. A great option, especially if you're in NY.

Thanks YoungAmerican, Cego is what I'm leaning toward now based on the prices and reviews I've read. How does BrooksBrothers fall into the mix though? Would Cego be a better bet / better collection & quality?

Never tried either of those that you mentioned but have tried Ascot Chang and am happy with them.

There's no comparison. For that money go to Carl and get a better selection of fabric in a perfect fit.

BB mtm is nice, and I own two of their shirts, but it is not the level of others mentioned.
