    Gents,

    Could you suggest some fine shirtmakers in London? I bought some decent ones at Hawes & Curtis, two years ago, but I would like to know other labels.

    Sorry for the poorness of my English,

    And thank you.

    I suggest you do a search here. Other makers include TM Lewin, Charles Tyrwhitt, Harvie & Hudson, Anderson & Sheppard, Budd, etc. Most are located in Jerymn St.

    Thanks, my dear.

    I'll search the makers you suggested on the web! I'm also interested in a double breasted navy regimental jacket (w/ golden buttons). It's impossible to find a nice one in Brazil. Have you a suggestion?

    all the best!

    I'm also heading to London in a few weeks. Already browsed the Jermyn street website quite a bit, it features links to most of the mentioned stores webshops.

    Really looking forward to that trip, will do my wardrobe good, but not the bank account.[​IMG]

    Hilditch and Key still has there sale online and I assume in their
    Shops. On sale, the shirts are real bargains for the quality.

    Indeed, but the problem about the sales is the lack of sizes.

    Seems that H&C is not what it used to be. Probably owned by someone else now.

    http://www.hawesandcurtis.com/

    But if you go to their website the deals are there. 3 shirts for 68 quid and shirts starting at 18 quid.

    Can anyone who has one of these shirts comment on their quality, fit, & finish? The prices seem unreal. Probably too good to be true.

    H&C has the poorest quality of all the Jermyn Steet shirtmakers (IMO). Fabrics and construction at H&K are pretty nice and are worth any premium, but if you're stuggling to find anything in their sales I quite liked the shirts from H&H.

    T&A Sea Islands are quite nice, but definitely not discounted...

    I bought some H&C's, last time I was in London, summer/2010. I liked them: suited me and they are very well fineshed, fine fabric and I use to wear w/ or without tie. I payed about $ 25,00 each. The problem is the lack of options on sizes and patterns.

    I prefer Harvie and Hudson. I feel they are much better quality than Hawes and Curtis. For me, probably the best 'bargain' on Jermyn Street.

    The one drawback to H&H is the button cuffs all have chest pockets. So, I only buy double cuff from them.

    A&S, so far as I know, do not make shirts.

    The three most highly regarded makers in London, AFAIK, are Sean O'Flynn, Robert Whittaker (Dege) and David Gale (T&A). I personally don't like T&A but I have no shirts from Gale.
