LOL. Fair enough. (Although you haven't seen my crotch!)
Who else here besides Patrick and myself have gotten Valentine to make them a shirt? I was wondering if someone who knows more about shirt construction can point out what makes these so different. Reason I ordered was to try out the unfused collar...I like it.
I love my shirts from him. Its all I am doing from now on. I just placed another order. I believe Axelman has gotten one or two.
If you dont mind me asking how much does he charge for his shirts?
You can get a MTM, which is like a factory made shirt from somewhere in Jeresey, maybe Gambert or something. Then there is bespoke where there is a lot more handwork and it is done by one of Frank's employees. I don't know what his base price is for either, but depending on the fabric that I have selected for the bespoke ones there has been a wide range of prices that I have paid.
Have you tried his MTM program?
Also could somebody enlighten me as to what CMT stands for
I have never done the MTM, but NY Ranger has. CMT stands for Cut, Measure, Trim, or Cut, Measure, Tailor. It refers to supplying your own fabric.
Does he do CMT on his bespoke shirts? I need to check out one of the shirts next time I see him.
I have had 4 casual shirts made by Valentine.
Forex: Yes, Frank will do CMT on shirts.
Is valentine the shirtmaker franks uses to make shirts for his clients?
Correct. I have done a few bespoke shirts from Frank and been very pleased with the result.
This looks fantastic.
Not really. Like I already posted. It depends on what you want. See below.
Still haven't had time for a fitting on the next suit. Jeremy might open the shop for me Sunday so I can pick up some shirts that are ready though.
You will work Jeremy to death, let the guy catch a break, at least on Sundays
