    Hey Gents,

    I just joined this forum. Seems like a great info source!

    I dress business casual for work and have generally bought shirts from a mix of of the usual suspects: Brooks Brothers, Tom Pink, Ted Baker.... Black Fleece has been a nice find - I really do love their gingham shirts.

    Here is the question - how have you liked your tailored shirts in comparison to these types of options? Fit? Quality of material? Patterns? Durability (not T Pink's strong point!)

    I generally try to buy on sale so dont want to spend more than $150 or so per shirt unless special. Also I do live in NYC so any suggestions on shirt tailors here? I do like interesting colorful patters, if that is any help.

    Thanks again.

    How about the following shirt workmanship?

    That looks pretty average, even a basic Neapolitan shirt is way above that.

    In concrete that shirt features more than 1 cm of margin left on the sides, where it says: single needle used. A good shirt features as less milimeters as possible, 1 cm is way poor.
