    Plus, one needs to know whether to pull or push the door. Or so I have read on the Internet.
    Or whether even to try. I always try and don't take it personally if it's locked.

    Budd's RTW shirts are excellent, easily in the same bracket as T&A, I assume their bespoke is made to at least the same standards..

    Are there stock RTW still made by Rayner & Sturges?

    Well, it's a sort of test they have to weed out the unsuitable, sort of like a personal introduction to a tailor. Even the French have some standards

    If you're going into Budd, be sure to look at their madder ties, they have not only the best selection compared to the other shops, but also the lowest prices.

    Edit: I like their site. How refreshing to have all the prices and services on the website up front. Why can't more people just put their prices on display.

    ^ And they're traveling to NY and Chicago in the fall.

    Andrey: didn't you get some Budd shirts awhile back?


    This is, in fact, a welcomed development to see Budd enter the new millenium, albeit a late arrival, with a splash: URL & U.S.A. visits.

    exactly my first thought, when the story was released...

    Don't know much about the range of fabrics available at Budd, but what I can tell you is this: Their shirts launder beautifully to a soft as butter touch. Blog post: Trust your Budd custom shirts to RAVE FabriCARE http://www.ravefabricare.com/true-qu...fabricare.aspx

    Nice people. I went in there ready to buy bespoke but was told I was so standard it would be a waste of money and they sold me some RTW shirts for less than half the price they could have sold me bespoke.

    They are not tentish in me but perhaps I am tentinsh myself!

    At this point, it seems we have named all the usual London suspects for bespoke shirts.
    Yes, we have ceased to be groundbreaking with our words. At some point we just ran out of ground to break.
