Shriting source

Gentlemen,

I have found a wonderful MTM shirtmaker close to me, but unfortunately I will need to provide the shirting. Having looked at all the local fabric stores I have come to the conclusion that I will have to travel to a bigger city to obtain some.

In the hope of avoiding travel which I don't have time for, can anyone suggest an online source for quality shirting?

Thank you in advance for your assitance.

edit note: I really do want shirting not shriting.

It doesn't make a lot of sense that someone can be both a wonderful shirtmaker and not provide cloth. If they make enough shirts to be wonderful they can buy cloth for half of the price you'll need to pay, either raising your price without reason or leaving profit on the table.

That said, Hwa Seng sells shirting and the service is excellent. http://www.hst.com.sg/

Damn, I thought I was about to learn an arcane new Britlish clothing term. Shriting sounds kind of plausible.

Will,

Thanks for the response. They do not carry shirting because they are newly established in small premises. I would like to hope that in future they will have a range of shirting available, however this is Iowa and I'm not sure how in demand their service will be.

Edit: I've been able to see some of their work and it is that which I refer to as being wonderful.
