    Hey,

    Does anyone know a great shirtmaker with classic cuts in London besides the big players like T&A, Emma Willis and Hilditch & Key etc.? Something more secret?

    Cheers

    Sean O'Flynn used to get a lot of attention, but I haven't heard anything about him in years. That would be next on my list to try if I were inclined to given another English shirt maker a go. I've used Budd and found it pretty unimpressive, but they've had a lot of personal movement since then so maybe things have gotten better. I used T&A in NYC, which I'm sure is a poor substitute for using them in London, but I thought it was nothing special and committing to six shirts before you receive a single one strikes me as absurd. Good luck.

    Its not uncommon for London shirt makers to have a minimum order.

    Know a few that have used Choppin & Lodge but again they are nothing special, have a minimum order but at £180 at least its not as pricy as most the others named
