Not MTM but bespoke:

I especially like:
So, the first step in bespoke is to get a serious shirt, one that fits, made by the best craftsmen you can’t afford before you step foot inside a tailor’s shop. When you have acquired short term funding from the IMF and had a proper shirt made, have it duplicated in Bangladesh and never (ever) vary from its measures.

Interesting concept but so far I have not really find an acceptable answer to it. Is there a preferred shirtmaker of sort? Like in many discussion forum I read the customer was not really satisfied with the result so had to give the resulting shirt to charity - I have to say a bespoke shirt is not the most useful gift for charity, if you give shirts to charity give more bang for the buck type shirts at last. :)
