Oh yeah, quite right.
Thanks. For a moment there I felt I was on this island of shirt inadequacy having so few. It seems you and I think alike having 10 shirts that are good for most situations and wearing the seams off them. I did a count and I have 17 and would like to get to 15, maybe 14.
Started doing bespoke/MTM for shirts in 2011 and the count is now about 16. Mostly patterns but a few solids whites,blues for wear on the wards. Vendors include Gambert, CEGO, DeCarlos, Astor & Black, Turnbull & Asser,
Including the ones I've recently ordered, total of 13.
Mix of bespoke which last for ages,and ready to wear, which fall apart in less than a year, despite being "Jermyn Street " shirts
Wish I could afford all bespoke..
So getting there!!!
Just counted, found 37 in the apartment. I have a couple more in storage, so its probably around 45 all in all.
Out of the 37, 24 are button downs, seems to be my favourite collar
How do you guys store your shirts? I have about 30 ironed on hangers which is nice in the morning, but takes an awful lot of space..
Lucky you,I wish I had 45 shirts!!!
I keep mine all on hangers like a shop rail - if you folded them they'd look very scruffy
About 125, when I last counted.
My shirts are also all pale pink, blue or white, but I like to change collar lines, fabrics etc to ring the changes!
In 2009, I had 75 counted up (!!!7, so I gradually sold them all off on eBay and love my current 13!
I would give anything for 125 bespoke shirts!!!
Would you give $25k?
Not on my current income, but if I was a Wall Street billionaire
But then I rotate the same ones anyway, which eventually shrink or wear out, so maybe I do only need 13 after all!!!!
I love shirts too!
Still remember my own first hand picked by me blue one when I was 11!
Nobody noticed if I change my jeans every day, but they do comment on my shirt!!
Just pining over 3 which I wore out completely (but I'm replacing them with 5 on order!)
I added 3 hardly worn ones from my collection into my rotation and will keep the 5 pristine!!(OCD or what?)
You make me fee better about loving shirts!!!
I wouldn't say no to a collection your size!
So you own 300 shirts?
I'm dying of jealousy
Although I couldn't find 300 that I like, I don't think..
I'd love 300 shirts -13 isn't enough...
125 bespoke shirts for $25K? That's a great deal! Who do you use?
