    Folks - I am 6 ft tall with slightly longer arm. I have always struggled with finding shirts that fit me well. I have tried several online stores. Any recommendations where I should try?

    I am 6'5 and and have an abnormally long upper body. I also have an athletic build. I use J. Hilburn MTM shirts. I think the price/quality ratio is pretty good, but not as good as a traveling tailor. I also get most orders within 14-20 days, which is much faster than any other MTM shit I have ordered. Whatever you do, stay the f away from Tom James if you go MTM rout.

    Difficult to know which country you live in let alone which town or city therein!

    Thanks for your response. I live in Chicago. I have used J HIllburn in the past. Not a big fan of Oxford shirts. A friend gave me 30% discount for Chicago start up Urbanior.com. Never heard of them before. I placed a test order. Sounds like they have a good collection, good customization options with price. I will let you know the outcome.

    Anyone heard of www.Urbanior.com?

    Go Cubs!

    Surprised no one has mentioned it already, but both Luxire and Proper Cloth have affiliate threads on Styleforum and are very highly regarded.

    TrunkClub is over priced in my opinion. Isn't it owned by Bonobos? Luxire sounds promising. Gracias. Just placed an order there.

    I take it that no one has heard about Urbanior?

    Thanks for the insight, will compare prices to other similar companies. Not sure who it's owned by! Let us know your feedback on Luxire.
