    Dear everybody,
    I like 100% cotton non-iron shirts as business and casual and want to buy 4-6 shirts. I don't want to spend too much money though, ideally less than £50 per shirt including alterations, therefore my choice is either go for RTW from Charles Tyrwhitt (seem to fit me best in shoulders and at sleeve length) and adjust waist with my tailor (about £10 per shirt, my waist is 34", neck is 15'5" and sleeve length is 33", Tailored fit of CT is 39.8", i.e. big) or go with Raja Fashions MTM. I considered Eton, but over £100 per MTM shirt is more than I'm willing to pay, plus I suspect I will have to adjust Eton shirts if I go RTW, so Eton RTW will be more than £50 even if I buy them at 50% discount.
    What option would you recommend me to go? If you know other brand then I will consider them as well - so far I checked Pink, TM Lewin, Hawes & Curtis, Austin Reed and some in TK Maxx, but they fit not that well in shoulders.
    Thank you.
