Hello,
I use exclusively T&A bespoke shirts, they were the first and only bespoke shirtmaker I ever used. Recently I bought online few Italian ready to wear shirts (Kiton, Finamore), and I have to admit I fall in love in their style and light fusing. So I'm looking for Italian MTM/bespoke shirt services availably in London. I'm based in Eastern Europe and I travel 3-4 times a year to London to commission my suits and shoes. I don't have time to travel to Italy and I would like to incorporate shirt making relationship (process) into the London trip. I would prefer bespoke, but I can also try MTM. I read somewhere that Finamore does MTM, but I can't find any information about that on their page. And what about some smaller artisans traveling to London? Could you help me guys?

Apposta are Italian made shirts but I’m sure have a base in London where you can get measured
They have a London Contact telephone number on their website
Have used them a few times and they have nice fabrics and quality finish

I checked the calendar at Permanent Style and it's almost empty. I assume it's because of the virus and as things will normalize, Avitabile and Abbarchi will visit London. I'm generally looking for very high quality and attention to the detail. I never heard about Apposta, but they sell shirts for 100 euro. Maybe I'm wrong, but if price is too much interesting, then it is the product that is not. One of the options I though about is Kiton's MTM service, they have a boutique in London, and their RTW are pretty high quality.

For the price of 5 Kiton MTM shirts I'm sure many neapolitan shirtmakers wouldn't mind to travel to Eastern Europe to take your measurements, go back with the fitting shirt to make the corrections and send over the final product.

Who are you thinking about? I ask, because I'm not familiar with Italian/Neapolitan shirtmakers.
