I use both, but I mostly use AC. You should be able to get the fit you want from either, but expect it to take multiple trial shirts.

AC is far more consistent and reliable than T&A, and they do exactly what you want. T&A may or may not do what you want, and some of their shirts can be finished poorly. If finish work is important, choose AC.

AC has more fabric choices, but T&A fabrics are more or less exclusive to them, and you won't find anything similar at AC. If you like T&A fabric, choose them.

No reason you can't use both.

Isn't T&A also 75% more expensive?

How exclusive is exclusive? I hear kiton says the same thing.

I love T&A collars and some of their exclusive fabrics are awesome. If they charged their London prices in NYC (instead of marking them up 100%), I'd go with them.
