    Have you asked anyone at Harry Rosen directly about this? I have found the employees at the stores I deal with quite helpful and knowledgeable.
    You could also visit their website, harryrosen.com, and "Contact Harry" with an email request for the answer.

    I think it's a factory in Toronto called "Royal Custom Shirt" or something like that. I was told by one of their staffs that they are making dress shirts for Rosen, and they don't accept orders from the public.

    Keep in mind that are only a handful of shirt makers in the GTA. 95% of all tailors in the area would outsource to one of these shirt makers.

    Thank you for the responses, but I think the GTA option is ruled out as it says "˜made in Italy' on the tag. Currently I am writing an email to Rosen CS department, thank you for the idea and I will keep everyone posted in case anyone is interested.

    On a lightly different note, does anyone from the GTA know of any reasonable priced custom shirt makers in the area? If yes, could you please post a contact number/URL?
    Thank you in advance.

    Let us know what you find out from Rosen.
    What is your definition of reasonable? There are places in the GTA that will order a "custom" shirt for around $85.00 per, while others, such as Rosen will often exceed $150.00 per with minimum orders, and with better fabrics costing much more.
    IMO, it comes down to what you expect for your value/dollar equation.

    Classic, which tailor could you get it for $85 and how's the quality? That's the labour and the material, right?

    Edit: Actually I'm hoping they could accept my own fabrics. Got some nice microfibers from the Queen W. fabri district.

    FCS, I was not referring to a specific tailor, but was thinking of firms that visit businesses and take the measurements/orders there. In essence, "factory" orders with some personal touches.
