hey guys i really like Ralf lauren purple label, but i find the shirts over priced and they dont go small enough for me.

which london shirt makers do nice shirts (i like snazzy shirts, ie bold stripes, good strong collars.

any suggestions

Turnbull & Asser, Paul Smith and Richard James do some brightly patterned shirts.

Alternatively take a trip to Bicester Retail Village in Oxfordshire and see if the Polo outlet has some RLPL you like. There's usually a selection of VERY brightly striped RLPL there at about half-ish retail. Last visit a couple of weeks ago, they had some of the multi-multi-colour stripey numbers, some striped Keatons with the extreme cutaway collars and some of the very eccentric paisley RLPLs.

If, by "small enough", you intend slim-fitting, you ought to be aware that RLPL does infact make a slim-fitting version of its 'Keaton'. Moreover if you ask to be notified of its sales, you will sometimes find RLPL shirts marked down by as much as 60%.

Finally, the 'Keaton' is made by Lorenzini in Italy ; it features, among other 'quality' indicators, single-needle side seams and mother-of-pearl buttons. But, at full retail, they are undoubtedly very expensive.

Picked up two custom fit PL Polo's, at Bicester yesterday.
They appeared to have a decent selection (all stripes) of Dress shirts.

It's a bit of a 'lucky dip' what you find.
