    Howdy All,

    I typically buy my RTW Super fitted/Super Slim shirts from European suppliers. American retailers' slim isn't really slim.
    This isn't something new. However, it makes me question whether I should get a bespoke shirt made in New York or in London.

    I know a bespoke shirt is made just for you based on your measurements, but I think I would feel more comfortable getting shirts made on a continent where tailors are more familiar with my body type.

    Thoughts?

    New York: Carl Goldberg, owner of CEGO. Franco Ercole also does bespoke shirts.

    Proper Cloth can measure you for MTM, along with a few others.

    david reeves does a very nice job. I think a good tailor will be able yo figure out what you want no matter where you go
