    Wow! Such nice shirts!
    With the huge selection of white shirts, what is the nicest, best quality, most stunning bright white shirt at the most reasonable price? There's so many they all look the same!
    Also, i googled "custom dress shirts" and after 4 pages i gave up...with exception of this site, i would have never found you!

    We have tried the google test too, and failed :)

    I may be biased, but the best White in our store currently is the White self Stripes by Monti. It is an extremely rich fabric.

    For plain white, the Lustrous Fine White is excellent.

    For hobnobbing with royalty, the Honegger is unmatched.

    To make Prince Charles take note, we also have plain white in 300/4

    Overall, you can choose any fabric in our store with confidence. The probability of disappointment is very low.

    I rec'd my first shirt today and am quite happy with it. The fabric and construction look nice and it seems spot on to my measurements. I will have to make a couple of tweaks on my next order, In particular one thing stood out. I snapped a couple of photos below right out of the box so pardon the wrinkles. Note the bunching behind the neck - it's pretty much like the "collar roll" that people get in the back of sport coats/suit jackets (which I have to fix on my jackets quite a bit). How would I go about eliminating this on my next shirt? If I pull the shirt down from the lower back area, it straightens out the collar bunching but then of course, the collar is not sitting on the neck as it's supposed to. Would there be any specific tweaks to my instructions and measurements going forward that could prevent this?

    You discovered those, they were supposed to go live later this week :)

    Our Thanksgiving special!

    Idea was to create the perfect gift. Priced at $24.99, with Mother-of-pearl buttons, fine stitching and fabrics from Europe and Egypt and Stainless steel collar stays, these would bring some smile to the ones who can find their fit.

    Not pre-washed so do expect some shrinkage.

    Sizes and availability are limited.

    Shipping would be by USPS Priority mail to all over the world.

    Hi Steveoly,
    Thank you for the feedback.
    With your next order, you can let us know about the bunching behind the neck. We will then alter the "back-neck-drop" to correct it. Do send us image an taken from the back as well.

    This is a great idea for people like me who are interested but haven't/aren' up to the MTM plunge yet - I can get some examples of your workmanship (which I'm already convinced of) at a reasonable starting price and see if I want to go further.

    One question - I don't see how to change sizing, Adding any item to my cart results in a 15 32/33 - how do you pick another size?


    Many thanks for pointing this out!

    Hi Razl,
    There are a lot of differences in the way our custom shirts are made and the way the Arnaud Rousseau RTW shirts are. So, I am afraid, the RTW will not give the correct picture of the workmanship on our MTM shirts. Depending on the feedback from these, we would launch Custom quality RTW probably in January.

    The size selector seems to have suddenly disappeared. Working on bringing it back.

    Ahhh, I didn't realize they weren't yours. Ok, then glad to see your heading towards an in-house RTW program for just the reasons that I said (though by then I most certainly should already have my first MTM order).

    This is what happens when your customers get ahead of your release schedule :)

    ps - just snagged 2 to check 'em out.

    They are ours, just made in the RTW part of our facility and not the custom.

    As you may have realized, the site is back on track. I can swear I made no changes. Believed that technology was supposed to behave consistently.

    Saw your order. And I always thought you were in Australia :)

    Just received my first pair of shirts yesterday. Ordered Oct 21, received Nov 21


    Fabrics:

    Luxire Privilege Collection Blue Micro Herringbone
    Lustrous Fine White

    I had asked for button-down collars with the buttons hidden - not an option on the ordering page, but I sent a picture and they said no problem.

    I'll take some pictures of the shirts tonight and post them, but in a nutshell they were well worth the wait. I was getting a little cross with the delays - not that I think a month is an excessive time to wait for a custom shirt, just because it was longer then they'd estimated - but now that I see what I'll be getting when I order from them, I won't be fussed about any delays in the future.

    The shirts fit better then any others I've ordered and the fabrics are both quite nice. Good drape, medium weight, nice quality. The white is very snowy, which I'm quite pleased with - I'll need a couple more of those I think.


    All in all I'm quite happy with the quality of the shirts that I received, and I'm VERY happy at the price I paid. As soon as I can find the original measurements I used for these shirts, I'll be ordering a couple more.

    Donovan.
