    If your size varies, that sounds like a good number to have!:)

    Yes and I've just ordered 2- 1 blue, I white

    She sent me 4 swatches, but one was twill, which bobbles, and I don't like..the other was Oxford which I find itches my skin- I'm better with high count poplins:):)

    My current collection stands at 11, one was too big (Hawes and Curtis) and wore out too quickly, so I'm exchanging it for a men's one as a birthday present for my doctor boyfriend...:)

    Still have enough though..

    Sean O'Flynn is one of biggest bespoke regrets.

    I had an appointment with me to order 5 shirts and I didn't pull the trigger...

    If Anna makes my 2 new double cuff shirts before I've worn out any others, I'll have 17!

    My collection is running away with me!!!:)

    17 shirts total, only 9 of them in my regular rotation though. Quite a few of the other 8 I practically never wear, just haven't had the heart to get rid of them - yet. Still need quite a few more shirts to get by without constantly doing laundry.

    Do you prefer rtw or bespoke?

    Snap on the 17 shirts, although I don't rotate all of mine..but I'm sure I'll get to them all anyway.

    Right now I'm living in AM and Charles Tyrwhitt shirts, sometimes TMLewin for a change, but I have other makers as well..

    Which are your favourite?:)

    Most of mine are light blue as well, with a few white ones and a couple of light pink end on ends (one TMLewin, 1 AM!

    Anna has my perfect pattern, but I alternate with rtw, which come up too big on me:)

    Don't get rid of the others until you're sure that you don't want them ever again!

    I regret getting rid of many of my old collection of 75, although 17 is a more reasonable rotation...

    I wear my oldest shirts to bed as pyjama tops:)

    With my recent spring/summer orders I'm going to hit 42, if I counted right. But like you, I rotate a subset of those based on season (both fabric weight and patterns/colors).
