    Turnbull has any handwork on their RTW shirts?!?

    I've never taken a hard look at any but I didn't think any of the Jermyn Street names hand sewed a stitch on bespoke, much less RTW.

    The comments about fit are amusing: "the fit is trim--but never tight" on who's body exactly?

    It would be funny to send the editors M. Fan's page about his Borelli MTO shirt

    GQ also says, in the same issue, that Church's (post-Prada nonetheless) are the best benchmade shoes available.

    Thats really a matter of opinion. But I think when GQ names them its more about the brand rather than the product itself

    Anna Mutuozzo and Alexander Kabbaz

    I can speak to the former, but not the latter. Not popular to ask on the other forum, but: how many of us have actually worn, nonetheless seen, a Kabbaz shirt? Photos of examples are extremely rare, particularly of them being worn.

    Well to tell you the truth, I havnt worn either. I just suggested them as that would probably be two that are boasted by this forum. And the way people who have passion in these sorts of things talk about them makes them sound very well made. Much better than the brands GQ puts forth. I dont think Borelli is that bad, they seem great quality but when you post a blog about it with pictures of the shirt...I dont want to pay 400 dollars for a shirt with so many anomolies. But then you go on to describe Anna M. shirts and it just kinda convinces me even though ive never tried them. Im going in a year to Italy and Ill be sure to stop by Naples to try her shirts and Ambrosi's pants though. Sometimes pictures can be a little convincing.

    I've seen many and own a few. Very fine shirts. Not worth it (to me) to pay 3-4 times more for a shirt that is maybe 15-20% better than I can get elsewhere.
