    Thanks Ranjeev. Regard the check patterns, as we mill our own fabric we only launched with 300 of the staple patterns to suit everyone's wardrobe. We are aware of hole in the product line and have started to produce some new patterns for the Spring / Summer. I'll keep the site updated and post back here too as new fabrics come.

    I can weigh in. Recently got a shirt done by Mike. I needed a significant taper at the waist and the shirt came out great. Fabric quality is top notch, and fit was 95% bang on the first time around, which was what I was worried about given the fact that he is passing on the work to someone else.

    Will be buying again, especially given the price. Never had any other MTM shirts before because of the price, but this is much, much better than OTR + taking to a tailor, for my fit anyways. Have gotten several compliments on the shirt from non-sartorialists.

    FWIW, my friend had a slight issue with his shirt and Mike went above and beyond to make up for it.

    Overall, very good experience.

    Picked up the shirt today. Looks really nice and I am quite pleased. I'll take some pics after the shirt is laundered and post again later this week. Mike is a great guy and if you're looking to get a shirt made in TO I think he should be someone you pay a visit to.

    +1 Mike is a nice guy, met him late last week as I just dropped by James VII. Didn't order a shirt though.

    Looking forward to your reviews and pics Ranjeev...

    Also waiting to see pics and ranjeev's review.

    I'd definitely consider having a shirt made here if everything looks good...

    Sorry guys...been getting killed at work and my camera is at my parent's house. I'll post as soon as I get my camera. I can take pics with my bb but I don't think that will do anyone any good. I wore the shirt to work and I believe one of my buddies is going in to get a shirt made.

    Thanks for everyone's interest. I look forward to your comments Ranjeev and everyone else's too based on the pictures. I do take pride in our work and would be happy to give anyone a tour of the product if they are in the Bay / Richmond area. I have 40 shirts on display so you can get an idea of the quality. Also, if anyone has suggestions of what they would like to see available, comments are always welcome. I built this company on the opinions of people who were upset with the current market, so I welcome all feedback be it on my shirts or what's missing locally. I'm still working on the check patterns and will have 80+ 120's available in the middle of May. (Checks will be right after).

    Please do note, I will be out of the city this Wednesday and Thursday launching a showroom in Halifax. (For those not in NS or the GTA, we will be available in 20 cities across North America in 2009 so stay tuned on the website)

    Thanks again for everyone's interest. I looked forward to all comments from the pictures.

    Mike

    PS. Wash the shirt at least once before your pics [​IMG] - I'd like to see how the measurements turned out after the first shrink

    Ranjeev called me yesterday and indicated he would take some pictures hopefully this Friday / Saturday. He's on his 3rd wash so we should get some great feedback on all aspects.

    Thanks again for your interest on my product. If anyone has any specific questions I'd be more than happy to answer them on the public forum.
