it's a two ply (read: thick) dress shirt, french cuffs, etc. and it's branded, but you obviously can't see that from the outside.

i'll also note that that's probably the average price for shirts of that quality here, and that in the US, you'd see at least a 20% discount on that, if not more. canada is pretty hurt sometimes.

i found a pretty cool site - biased cut. it basically brings fully-tailored shirts within the financial realm of a lot of people.

they have a rotating number of pre-selected designs. you upload your measurements, choose the design, then specify a few features (type of collar, type of cuff, slim/normal cut, monogram), then they get the shirts made in hong kong. there are a few other sites that do this but with shirts made in the usa, but they cost about four times as much). all in it's $85 a shirt + $5 shipping!

here's their blog http://biasedcutblog.com/
and their store http://www.biasedcut.com/

Hey Martin -

Unfortunately, we're still unable to ship to the EU.  Although I wouldn't go
so far as to call you unlucky to be in the Netherlands - a pretty fantastic
place in our brief visits!

Thanks for getting in touch though and taking a look at the site. We hope we
can begin shipping to more locations soon.

Cheers,

i think the button-down collar on the pink oxford is fitting. do note that i absolutely would not wear the shirt with a tie. it is semi-casual.

i would consider these for professional dress for myself, of which i would get a traditional collar with buttoned cuffs, or maybe a spread collar with french cuffs:
-> the perfect white
-> tangerine striped
-> grey solid

i just don't have any experience with spread collars nor french cuffs. i don't know when it's overkill.

nestor: kindly advise!
nestor's avatar

i am definitely not a defender of button collars with ties, but fyi, (fashionable) proponents exist.

i see button collars as perfectly acceptable in a professional environment where suits/ties are not worn (i.e. business casual with light slacks).

french cuffs might be a bit too dressy if you go with new metal cufflinks (vs. vintage links or silk links which are a bit less formal).

spread is hit or miss without a tie and might make you end up looking like you're going out instead of working, especially without a jacket.

the problem with the tangerine is going to be pairing it with a tie, unless you have some nice solid ties. other two are of course really easy to match.

going out to like... a broadway show?

the white shirt would mostly be for interviews. i don't need much formal dress, as academia is my chosen career path.

i think i would go for the configuration i wrote before:

perfect white, traditional collar, french cuff, slim fit, monogram "jlr"

and i'd get some collar stays and some purple silk knot links.

how does that sound, nestor?

Bozeman shuts down main street once a week in the summer for the Music on Main concert series. Then (and only then) you're allowed to have drinks on the street.

i've been perusing the mtm/custom shirts scene a bit now and ran across this gem:

proper cloth

if you use this link to sign up, you get $10 credit (putting the price, for the lowest cloth tier, at $90 shipped, the same as biased cut).

site owns because: 190 different swatches of cloth from which to use; spread/londoner collar options; button customizations; cuff/collar accents; etc.

reviews from men's clothing enthusiasts seem to be largely positive, although mtm shirts typically use the same pattern for all shirts, despite allowing changes in measurement. so if you have oddly-shaped shoulders or some other far-from-average feature, don't expect perfection from these sites.

wtf do any of those numbers mean? where is the guide to tell you? and why the hell do they put these tailored shirt on some woman with bad hair and unattractive skin? I mean look at the "on woman" shot on this page ...awful.

Also, is this packaging for real?

I would hat that with my berkinstocks on... with argyle socks... while smoking a pipe, and drinking gentlemen's jack... in my trailer... next to my boat house.

I don't know if you meant "tap that" or if you're just using some weird nny-man phrase, but either way I think this is a terrible idea

my first biased cut shirt took four weeks.
the second shirt took three weeks.
the third shirt took sixteen days.
the fourth shirt took twelve days.

tip for biased cut: email them and they can change almost anything about any of the shirts.

this biased cut order: two weeks from web submission to delivery, even with special customizations.

to summarize for nestor:

my first biased cut shirt took four weeks.
the second shirt took three weeks.
the third shirt took sixteen days.
the fourth shirt took twelve days.
the fifth, sixth, and seventh shirts took fourteen days.

i'd conclude that we've reached equilibrium. 12 to 16 days from web submission to delivery.

> well, as i get into tailored shirts, i better get good hangers, huh?

if not for shirts, then certainly for suits:

the importance of hangers

to summarize visually:

suit resting on a skinny hanger vs suit resting on a wide hanger

go buy them. coincidentally, the hangers in the article are from kirby allison, the same ones lucas linked to earlier. they're $25 per hanger. ouch.

i just ordered two new biased cut shirts, no back pleat and with monogram (more closely) matched to the colour of the shirt.
