    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..

    ATM it's:

    5 TMLewin
    8 bespoke

    So getting there!!!

    Too many...


    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 [​IMG]


    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:)

    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!:)

    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!
    Keep collecting!:)

    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...
