1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know that custom shirts have a wide range of costs based on fabric. I was wondering what is better value, to go full bespoke shirt or buy ?

    I really depends what you want and need. MTM is also an option...and there are plenty of good affordable companies out there.

    A true bespoke shirt is very expensive. (bespoke meaning a unique pattern for you, trial shirt, etc.). Also, shirts suffer more wear and tear from laundry than most other tailored clothing. I'd rather spend money on bespoke jackets/trousers and get a quality MTM shirt. With MTM I get a good fit and most of all my choice of fabrics, collar style and other details. Currently I'm getting my shirts made by Joe at mytailor.com where a good Thomas Mason fabric MTM is around $140-$150. Joe measures you (or you do it online and then they are cut and sewn in Hong Kong). I've also begun using No Man Walks Alone for their "custom" handsewn MTM shirts from Inglese in Italy. They are about twice the price but you get loads of handwork, Italian flair" in the cut, and some beautiful fabric and detail options. I think they are a great value and compare to Kiton shirts I've seen recently at 3-4X their price.
