Alexander West


Shirtmaker: Alexander West

Shirt Ordered: Maroon Mode

Thread Count: 80

Made in: Hong Kong

Price (including shipping): $145

Fit: Slightly too fitted through chest

Pros:
* Large fabric selection
* Excellent measuring videos
* Smooth customization and ordering process
* Beautiful packaging

Cons:
* Fused collar could do double-duty as hand-cuff
* Delivery time

Nota Bene: If you're in NYC you can get measured at West's SoHo showroom.

Ideal Customer: Pattern-loving Italian dandies aiming for a cameo on The Sartorialist.

Tasting Notes: From the site experience to the measuring videos to the packaging to the shirt itself, Alexander West provided the most enjoyable shopping experience overall. The gingham shirt we ordered wasn't cheap ($130 + shipping) but it gets all the details exactly right. (Especially if you like a collar so stiff it could probably teach a thing or two to Viagra's R and D department.)
