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?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
