All I know is that they are extremely expensive, and that you can get high quality MTM or Bespoke shirts for just alittle bit more, or perhaps even the same cost.

They seem to advertise their white shirts.

The Pink 170s shirts are fantastic. Buy them on sale or on EBay.

Quality decent enough, but little pricey for what you get.

Overpriced. On sale they are worth it. Nice avatar by the way, Jokerman.

Quality is crap at TP. You can get Hong Kong bespoke for less.

+1000 on everything that's been said. I have three Pink shirts - one blue one bought in early 2006 just for kicks before I knew any better and then two white shirts this past May - all full price. The blue one was purchased at that price out of sheer ignorance but the white ones were an urgent need for my mom's funeral. It was the first place I headed that morning since I knew they'd have my size in stock and they didn't disappoint. I was in and out in ten minutes and onto more important things.

But now that I know better I will never buy OTR shirts again unless it's an absolute necessity. I just got my first order from MyTailor.com and the shirts are awesome and a heck of a bargain at $90 each. They have cheaper ones, too, and more expensive ones so if you can get an appointment with Joe when he visits your town or nearby, definitely do it.

There's a Thomas Pink discount outlet at a shopping centre not too far from me and at heavy discounts they're pretty good and they have some nice styles from time to time. I wouldn't pay full-price, though.

Is Hong Kong bespoke, in general, better quality than TP?

Thomas pink quality varies at each level and to where the garment is made. they are owned by LVMH. they have high priced leases on their stores. much of the cost of your shirt goes tomaintaining those expensive stores.

I do not understand their slim fit shirt.
They have added a side body that does not really do what it is supposed to do. Also the french seams always look odd to me.

It is almost a women's wear construction.
