So I have an appointment with my shirtmaker (Hemrajani) next week. I have been thinking about polka dots recently.

What are your opinions on polka dot dress shirts? How would you wear them?

Thanks!

You seem like a nice guy.

Whatever the shirt was going to cost you, I'll pay you to not get it done.

Those flicks don't look bad. You scared everyone when you initially said "polka dots!"

For a sport shirt maybe (which that is), but not a dress shirt.

Just for clarification, is your issue with the polka dots, Hemrajani/MyTailor, or both?

Not sure about Hemrajani's rep, so I figured I'd ask. I know there's a decent amount of discussion about MyTailor on SF, I just never paid attention to the consensus.

I like the "H Belt" at the bottom of that page. It reminds me of something I've seen before...


Not sure I want "House of Cocaine" showing up on my bank statement tho

I've seen MyTailor stuff in person and it looks very good. I think when you meet up with him, rather than just order online, the results look great.\\

Polka dot dress shirts are gag inducing. Those shirts above are gag inducing. They were cool fro about a month in the early '80's, but Kid and Play are senior citizens now.

Email Joe to ask whether he's even got fabric like this.
