    winners-picked Ratio Clothing Giveaway Contest! One Shirt - No Limits!! Enter Here

    I received the shirt Wednesday and it fits nicely, we'll see after a wash. The Thomas Mason blackwatch flannel has an amazing hand and is very light compared to the other flannels I own. I can't find anything wrong with the sewing, it's very well-made. The horn buttons are a little lighter in...

    winners-picked APPOSTA Men's Dress Shirts: Giveaway Contest! Enter Contest HERE!!

    My initial order arrived and it was obvious pretty quickly that I inputted the cuff measurement incorrectly. The other place I order shirts (Proper Cloth) uses a buttonhole to button measurement. Apposta uses the entire length of the cuff. That's a noticeable difference and was entirely my...

    Barney's Filed For Bankruptcy Protection

    Somewhat off topic, but seeing as this thread has been a bit of an NYC themed thread... I was in NYC for the first time in a few years. Some random observations; J Press’ new store is nice enough, but pretty much devoid of stock (suits notwithstanding). For all BB’s ills I still enjoy 346 and...

    Transitioning to nicer shirts

    I've had pretty good success with Proper Cloth. It took a couple shirts to dial in fit but I'm please with what I have now. They have a range of fabrics. Thomas Mason fabrics start around $150 to $160 and are very, very nice. Heck, there are lots of options under $100 as well. Hemrajani is...

    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    You remember, of course, that today' shirt was the shirt made in error - the fabric samples from Thomas Mason were set up that the fabric I had intended to have made up as a shirt was the fabric below the fabric from which today's shirt was made. Eventually,a shirt was made for me in the proper...

    Has anyone tried TM 100% Tencel fabric for shirts?

    Howdy and Good Morning! https://propercloth.com/reference/thread-count-ply/ https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/shirt-guide-basics-weaves/ Instead of typing away and “reinventing the wheel” I figured these links would be easier. I think they provide a decent summation. I’ve never had a shirt...

    Has anyone tried TM 100% Tencel fabric for shirts?

    Hello. TM fabrics are few and far between here. One of the shirt making establishments (The Bombay Shirt Company) offers shirts made from Thomas Mason's Tencel microfibre. Here is a link to it on the Albini Mills website: http://www.albinigroup.com/en/our-world/raw-materials/tencel-micro/ Here...

    The best tailors globally who will use fabric provided to them

    You will "courier" the fabric, huh? Well, kiss it good-bye, then. Here's a time-saving suggestion: Buy or borrow some fabric scissors. Use them to cut up your beautiful fabrics into many small, irregular shapes. Then throw all of those scraps into the garbage. Much more convenient for you...

    The best tailors globally who will use fabric provided to them

    I hope this has not been addressed elsewhere. I wondered if anyone could recommend the best shirtmakers and suit/jacket makers who would consider making a garment from fabric provided to them. I understand this is not common practice and many houses will not do it. Over several months I have...

    Ascot Chang House Fabric vs. Lee Baron Thomas Mason

    Dear Gentlemen, As an update, I ended up giving Lee Baron a try, since I really liked the Royal/French Oxford Thomas Mason cloth I saw. My only concern is with the shirt's fit in the back (both upper and lower), which I have taken photos of here...

    Ascot Chang House Fabric vs. Lee Baron Thomas Mason

    @Sir Kurokodairu, Howdy! I have no experience at all with any of the businesses you mentioned. However, I have had all my dress and sport shirts made bespoke for the last several years (by a shirt maker here in the U.S.) so maybe I can be of a little bit of help. I am completely unfamiliar with...

    Ascot Chang House Fabric vs. Lee Baron Thomas Mason

    I wore a shirt this morning that I bought from Ascot Chang in New York in 1997 (there is a tag inside that gives the year made). It’s still stylish and the colors hold after countless launderings. Blue muted plaid. I did have them replace the frayed collar and cuffs about 8 years ago with white...

    Ascot Chang House Fabric vs. Lee Baron Thomas Mason

    Dear Stylish Gentlemen, TL;DR: Would you rather have your custom shirts made at Lee Baron with Thomas Mason fabric, or Ascot Chang with their house fabric at essentially the same price (USD ~150)? --- Long time forum lurker here, stepping out of the comfort of the shadows for the first time...

    Fabric Butler Mobile App by Albini Group

    Very interesting. For those who might not be aware, Albini Group also owns and sells Thomas Mason fabrics (and the super luxury David and John Anderson brand as well).

    Well, many great discoveries came by way of accident. Penicillin and X-Rays are two notable examples; now we can add your MTM shirt. And nobody thought the less of Fleming for the aborning happenstance as he, like you, knew what to do with the serendipity.

    What Are You Wearing Today?

    I would accept your praise, save for the fact that today's shirt was the "mistake" shirt - made for me by Brooks Brothers out of a material I didn't order (the labels of the fabric samples from Thomas Mason were a bit confusing). However, as mistakes go, this one was fortuitous.
