    I have been looking for this time of shirt for 4 years.

    Found one in Savile Row last winter but not my size.

    Have H&K or H&H this type of shirt during these sales?...

    Some really nice patterns there. I love the yellow/navy/sky striped shirt. How's the quality (fabric, buttons), and the fit (hopefully not balloony) on these? Thanks, Dan

    I know what a bengal stripe looks like, but the topic clearly says "White and Pink wide or bengal stripe shirt" so I thought it would fall in to the first of those categories.

    When I said "White ans Pink WIDE" I meant BUTCHER = very wide "bengal stripes" which is not called bengal strip I guess. That's why I put "or".

    I do not like liste rouge : I had an experience with them as I bought a MTM shirt. Result = 1) A broken thread in the fabrics on the collar 2) Too shorts sleeves 3) To narrow shoulder making an horizontal bar between the shoulders 4) Too large space between buttons making the shirts opening when you are sitting They made a second shirt. Same problems of fitting. They said it was coming from my body.... I replied ironicly : "that's why I want a MTM shirt.... My body is normal as H&K RTW shirts are good. The first saleman told me they would give me the first shirt as a gift. When I came to take the second one, the chief told me no way and didn't believe me when I said his collegue had proposed me the first bad shirt as a gift. So I ask them to refund me and let them their 2 shoddy shirts. Prices are higher now. This is really a trap .

    Then I can only recommend Barba or Borrelli for MTM shirts. I'm pretty sure they have fabrics like this in their collection.

    Too expensive for me and they are not available in Paris anyway (I guess).

    I hope I will find this type of stripes in Jermyn street soon.

    Thanks for you help.

    Barba Napoli Made to Measure will set you back for about 200 euros.

    200 euros is too expensive for a RTM shirt for me.

    I can buy 3 shirts (which fits me nice) at H&K for this price.

    I can also go to Charvet and choose fabrics, collar and cuffs and sleeve lenght.

    And I would never buy a shirt I do not try on (particulary at this price) as if something is wrong (very likely) I do not want to spend time ans money on shipment.
