    Stitch, have you ever considered going bespoke or at least MTM with your shirting? You seem to spending enough that you could make the jump pretty easily. And a number of tailors will include the bells and whistles that you like on the hand-finished eyetalian stuff. Just curious.

    That Borrelli BD collar is huge!! Let me know how it looks on you. I've been interested in that kind of thing.

    indeed i have. and i would love to. however, i only would do it in person. not sending my measurements, or a shirt i already have. to me, that isnt MTM, its almost, but not. and sadly, in bmore, there aint a MTM vendor worth even considering that i know of.

    per a gdl rec, i hope to get to CEGO in nyc one of these day, get measured, and try using his services. although i often go to nyc, i rarely have the time, as im usually travelling for a wedding or some such. but i really hope to make it happen sooner than later.

    im spending between 75-150 a shirt, i think i could get decent enough MTM for that. yes?


    twas worth the risk. im sure a fit pic with it will be up soon. :)

    If you're ever in Richmond, Creery does great bespoke shirts. Everything is done in house.

    Gotcha. I've had some decent success with online retailers, but that's really only because I have had a tailor friend measure, adjust and advise me on fittings (as a personal favor). So I have a pretty nailed-down pattern/set of measurements.

    Dunno how pricing goes for y'all in the Mid-Atlantic, but in ATL Sid's MTM shirts are $155 a pop.

    Do you (or anyone) know if CEGO only does in person work? I would love to try out his shirts, but Dallas to NYC is a bit tricky.

    Stitchy, that pinstripe Borrelli is awesome. Thinking about a shirt like that maybe a bit brighter blue.
