Shirts: RTW vs. tailored

I was wondering why people are buying RTW shirts for $135-200 (eg retail for Pink, H&K etc) when for about the same price range you can get one tailored for you by Paris, CEGO, or Ascot Chang?

Is it because in RTW the fabric is better or different colors you can't find at the tailor?

The RTW shirts I've been buying are a lot cheaper. I can't see spending more than $100 on a RTW shirt. But yet I see lots of designer shirts going for a lot of money. Someone's gotta be buying them.

Am I missing something?
