    I went to cego custom shirts recently and should have known given the condition of the building he's in how cheap his stuff really is. I am so dissatisfied with the service and quality of the custom shirt making.
    Carl is extremely unprofessional he forced me into accepting shirts that didn't fit my liking.

    I do not recommend anyone to go to cego. :foo:

    I'm a bit surprised. I really liked my experience with Carl and consider him one of the best value for money out there. I've had bespoke shirts made in Rome, Paris (including Charvet) and Carl made an amazing fit on his first try.

    The next ones did not fit so well but they were made without any fitting since I was overseas. They've been altered since then.

    You have joined simply to tell us that - what is the rest of the story that you want to besmirch his name thus?

    Is Carl strong-willed, or are you weak-minded?

    Someone has an axe to grind. I take the OP's testimony with a grain of salt.

    I'm all too familiar with tailoring antics like this.

    Carl is awesome, you on the other hand seem like a douche.

    I have no idea who jacobd is, so i do not know what i did wrong.
    and I could have done something wrong.
    I screw up plenty!!!

    and to the defense of my dumpy building..
    It went into receivership the week after i sighed my lease.
    so any planned improvements, never happened.

    The building was sold, and i will be moving to a new location.
    TBD. and my prices may have to go up,because rents in this city are not going down.

    An anonymous thread giving no context like this shouldn't even be allowed. Borders on defamation (ethically speaking)

    My experiences with Carl have been great. Only wish I lived in NYC.

    OP, did you try to reach a reasonable accommodation , or are you just complaining for the hell of it?
