    i find BR shirts fit poorly. club monaco shirts are pretty good if you can get them on sale, they seem to be decent quality and fit. the only problem i have with them is that their either all white, black, or some combination of both involving stripes.

    BR has a slim fit line that fits well.

    Huh? This has never been the message on SF. If anything, SF talks about getting the proper fit via MTM, which can range from as low as $100 - $200 +, depending on what you can afford. Hell, SF even suggets just buying OTR and having a competent tailor adjust accordingly, if MTM isn't an option (for price or access).

    You're probably missing the point. SF talks about fit, quality of fabric, and construction. With MTM, you can get all three for a reasonable price. CM and BR may offer 1 of the 3 at any time, and at full retail isn't worth it. If you end up picking these shirt up on sale for $40 or something, and it's in your budget, and you like them. Knock yourself out. No one on SF will look down on you.


    On the streetwear forum you'll get bonked on the head for talking about BR. But what you said is true.. I picked up a BR Monogram slim fit shirt which uses Thomas Mason fabrics for about $20!

    It cannot be locked until I add Savile Row's Paul Jheeta, and I refuse to do that.

    As well as keeping threads alive that should have been locked long, long ago.

    Thinking you're a better man than your fellow man because you can afford to shop at exclusive boutiques. You're not. You're just another douche in an expensive suit and handgrade shoes.
