    Gents,

    Wondering if anyone here has experience getting a shirt done from Dunhill? I saw a video of it on youtube and I'm intrigued. I live in HK and I haven't asked the price/lead time yet, just wondering if anyone has experience with them. I'm also thinking of making a custom Brooks Bros shirt for the hell of it, which is 900HKD for the regular non-iron fabric. Is that a good deal?

    Cheers

    Don't know much about Dunhill custom, but I am sure most on the forum would point you in the direction of a few other custom shirtmakers before Dunhill. Just mu thoughts.

    Yeah I would agree with that, I'm in a curious stage in my "sartorial career" where I just want to try different avenues. I made a couple shirts with Peter Lee in the entry level price range and I enjoy it, but out of sheet laziness (of picking fabrics), I wonder if getting once done thru Dunhill-Brooks is the way to go. I know I will like the brooks one because I love the non-iron as its a great backup if I'm too busy to iron. But yeah, feel free to chime in folks.

    Just from reading older post in the past everything is centered around what your budget is. What a good option for you depends on what you are willing to spend. I would rather have a Kiton shirt altered by a good tailor to fit then a custom Brooks Brothers. If you search the B&S section there are a ton of deals on much better shirts then BB & Dunhill. I'm done, nothing wrong with exploring different options like you are.
