MTM Shirts in Boston

I'm absolutely sick of RTW dress shirts. I can't find one quality shirt that fits even remotely well, and my tailor says it will be very expensive to alter all of my BB slim fit shirts into something even remotely close to wearable. I'd love to get some MTM shirts, but I have no idea where to start. I've been researching for awhile, and it seems as though these places may offer a MTM program:

Brooks Brothers (although they seem to cater to older men)
The Andover Shop
Drinkwater's Cambridge

Other than these, I have no idea where to start. I'm a guy in his young 20's and I'm in good shape, so with all of that being said would any of these places be able to create a relatively slim fit dress shirt? I'm open for any suggestions aside from "get a RTW shirt altered", because people never seem to be able to recommend a decent tailor to alter the shirts after I buy them. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Give Drinkwater's a try. Gary is a great guy, and he carries MTM shirts from Individualized and from Hilditch & Key. I haven't tried either, but you will get attentive service.

Thanks Vox. Is there a minimum order? I'm not too familiar with the MTM process, and I'd hate to put in a large order at any one place in case they do something wrong and I end up with a bunch of unusable tents.

Sorry, don't know. Just ring him up, or PM him...he's an active member here, particularly on the SW&D side of the forvm.

Depending on how much alteration you need, you could also try Jack's by Porter square, Cambridge.

I've been very pleased with his services.

Don't be crept out by strange old men who might periodically emerge from the basement of the store.

Dana is a good guy who knows his shyt. He himself brings up the issue of discounts for multi-piece purchases, btw.
