    I work in London and want to get myself non-iron shirts. I don’t want to pay over £50 per shirt and therefore have more or less two options – go MTM with Ravis Tailors (they should be soon in the UK on tour) or buy CT shirts (it fits be best among RTW non-iron shirt makers on Jermyn Street) and adjust them in waist. I thought to buy MTM non-iron shirts from Eton, but they will cost over £100 and I think it is way over the top.
    Which option do you think is the best? I see many people complain about Ravis, but then there are a lot of people who are happy with them. I also wonder if I be hit by 20% import tax if I buy from Ravis – to my knowledge they are an international franchise, but do they send clothes from Thailand directly to the customer or through a local distributor?
    Thanks

    Unfortunately, nobody replied and I decided to buy from Ravis Tailors. They are BAD!!! CT corrected by a tailor is a safer bet. Still in dispute with Ravis Tailors for my money back, but it does not look like I will get any satisfaction...
    And I am not that demanding customer and many members of the forum - Ravis are so bad that many RTW shirts for £15 can beat them in fit!
