    I have MTM shirts from several makers. What I'd really like to see is the fabric mill's logo, the maker I will remember, but mills tend to slip my mind. Any shirt will only last so long as the fabric lasts.

    Thank you for the suggestions friends.

    Our idea was to free you from that thought process. Choose the design, choose the weight and rest assured.

    But, the case for not only continuing but focusing on mill names along with fabrics is strong. We will certainly reconsider.

    I think it's best if the customer know which mill the fabric is from.

    Thanks. I, as others have stated, would prefer the sources stated.

    For those of you who have ordered are you submitting shirt measurements or body measurements?

    All the positive reviews here make me really want to give a shot. If you gave body measurements did the shirt come out as wanted? or were tweaks needed?

    Cheers.

    In my opinion, the more detailed your information about: where the cotton is grown, how you sourced the cotton and who mills the cotton, is always better. A bio into the some of the Indian tailors and how you developed your relationship with them, would also add a nice touch. It doesn't need to be O.T.T but 3-4 sentences would be awesome.

    I am one of those guys that are a sucker for the story behind each piece of clothing. It is quite nostalgic for me. It makes me cherish and take care of my clothes more so than I would otherwise.

    Not knowing the origin of a fabric will not discourage me from ordering it, especially if there is still information about the weave (e.g. 120/2, 30s, etc.). However, I think it can only be a good thing to use brand names like Monti, Thomas Mason, etc. if they are available to use.

    Just sent an email about getting that tux shirt made - although I didn't see a nice pique fabric on the website which is something I would like.

    PS - I agree, include the makers.
