Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Made to measure shirts in Linen around UK

I know, very unusual. Why a made-to-measure linen shirt? Well I would if not for the fact that my desired style is not on the market or is not in my sizing. I'm a 42-44UK chest person with a 16 inch neck. Most linen shirts you find are usually very baggy around the neck since it's in size S,M,L,XL, or its in a collar style I don't like. Basically I can't find the shirt that's cut for my build. I checked out Uniqlo, Charles Tyrwhitt, Sunspell, Eton, Sirplus, Drakes (a brand that doesn't offer free delivery and returns for a £500+ order...), Luca Faloni, Thomas Pink, Hackett, New Lingwood and loads more that I won't mention. I literally googled "Button" "Down" "Linen" in google and went through every article that I can find, here in the UK. None of them suits my needs.

The style I want is a button-down collar shirt, with a roomier fit, but classic fit; it's hard to find for some reason, since it's all in slim fit but I digress. I really want pastel yellow, white and maybe in a Bengal stripe colored shirt. Ideally I just want to buy one shirt to get the fit just right.

I have seen Suitsupplys made to measure programme, but since I played around with their custom tools in the past, seeing that their suits are made for men who are pencil stick shaped men. I'm not too keen on them. Has anyone used these guys as a built... more vigorous man? How did they fit? Anyone got any good brand recommendations? Price wise, as cheap as possible. I'm more focused on the quality so could potentially be happier to pay a bit more. Or perhaps I should wait until summer before getting some.

Before someone asks, I want button-down collar shirts. As I have virtually none in this style, I thought what could be the best collar for a linen shirt, and I thought it should be a button down collar. I don't need anymore wide cutaway collars and boring old collars.
