The top shirt is their chambray, but it is s heavier weight shirt
MTM just launched. $180 and 45 day turnaround...
Well, I will keep buying the regular shirt then...
... so much potential. Although, I'm sure the price is justified in a way given all the competition that exist today. Still a bit steep nontheless.
Anyways, I'll probably stop by sometime this week to take a look and inquire more about the process. Curious to see their collar offerings and level of detail that go into each shirt.
Can anyone compare fit to a Gitman Vintage shirt? Those chambray shirts look great. I think I will wait until they are release and have one big order.
I wear a Large in GV and I order the Tokyo Classic fit in 16.5/33, because I have short arms. The fit in the chest is very similar: quite trim. I prefer the feel of the Kamakura oxford cloth to the GV.
Stopped in the Madison Ave shop this evening. Very friendly sales staff. The NY slim fit is comparable to CT Tailored fit but with MUCH higher quality. I ended up getting one of the knit shirts, which are awesome. I would, however, caution smaller guys against purchasing shirts sized s,m,l without first trying on. The SA suggested a small to me despite the fact that I'm nearly 200 lbs, and it was a good fit. The medium was way too big.
just received my kamakura shirts and the quality is great. the neck is a little larger and the sleeve is on the short side. I ordered a tokyo slim in size 16/35, and i usually wear brooks brothers ESF 16/35. very similar in cut actually...
The new vintage style shirts look awesome and I want to order one soon. Just heard from Kamakura and they're going to be receiving the vintage shirts in the New York fit in September.
Vintage style, what does that mean?
wearing a classic NY cut today
I cannot think of a better way to spend 79.00, so happy with these
Yes. I am 220 and wear a medium in the knits
Are we wearing different cuts? I'm 5 10, 175 and took an LL (XL) in the knit shirt.
new york cut vs tokyo cut
