From one Prince to another, when he becomes the King he should shake it up, clothes and all. It should be known as The Purple Reign.

Well OP, like most married men his wife goes down to target and buys his shirts for him. Then she takes them home, washes them by hand and lovingly irons them in front of the TV while watching East Enders. Of course Kate does all this with a tiara on because, unlike your run of the mill housewife, she's royal.

That's the difference OP, between your shirts and his.

Kate's blue polka dotted dress sucked. Wills' shirt was a boring blue.

I'm not so sure that it's the shirt so much as the tailoring that makes his shirt look so good on him. I have a friend who knows how to sew and he tailors pretty much all of his clothes and he's always being asked where he buys his clothes at.

I visited the Turnbull & Asser website... are their clothes bespoke only?

Their site has a lot of information (history, heritage, blah, blah), but no information on their products, pictures, etc.

Is Turnbull & Asser one of those "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" things?

by Anonymousreply 3307/24/2013

Turnbull and Asser at Mr Porter over $300 for a shirt.

by Anonymousreply 3407/24/2013

Oh, nevermind: I found their (off-the-shelf) shirts on the Bloomingdale's website. $300+.

I wonder how much more the bespoke ones cost... must be nice to be rich.

Turnbull and Asser were Prince Charles' first royal warrant (issued in '81) as "shirtmakers" so William probably gets his shirts there.

Rwhatever was correct - it's in the tailoring. Even a shlub can look decent with the right tailor and a cheap shirt can look perfect. Touching it is another matter - the hand of the fabric will always give it away.

A bespoke shirt in Paris or London is about $450. Same shirt in Naples, Italy would be much less--you can get a bespoke jacket in Naples for what amounts to 700 or 800 dollars. In Hong Kong, a bespoke shirt would be under 100.

You can fake it by buying a nice shirt at Nordstroms or J Crew and having a tailor alter it to suit you (less than $20 for the tailoring).

by Anonymousreply 4207/24/2013


Instead of the two ends of the cuff being rounded where they come together, they have a triangular cut away.

Turnbull & Asser would be front runners but any of the tailors in or around Savile Row could also be contenders - Gieves & Hawkes, Manning & Manning, Henry Herbert etc. all popular with the military types.

My most prized items of clothing are 4 bespoke shirts from Henry Poole - spread collar, mitred barrel cuffs, sea island cotton - I had never had a tailored shirt before and had some spare cash so treated myself. They fit perfectly, always look crisp and smart, feel like a second skin. The whole thing was a fantastic experience, from the first time stepping into the shop through to fitting. The shops have all got the most incredible client lists going back for years - you can get a suit made at the same place Fred Astaire, Cary Grant and The Aga Khan got theirs made. And anyone else who's very rich in the past 200 years.

Everyone on the DL talks about how hot Harry is (and he is) but I think William has a great body and looks good in jeans, suits, and just about everything he wears.

Not quite, dear. Unless we're talking some sort of terribly fine fabric, the going rate for bespoke button-downs is closer to $350, even on the Continent. This is why one should never ask a lesbian for clothing advice...

Turnbull & Asser is known for its suits, but shirts? Not so much. The finest two shirtmakers in the world are French and American: Charvet and Hamilton, respectively. Kate certainly doesn't limit herself to British designers -- although she certainly wears more British fashion than anything else, mind you -- and I see no reason why William would, either.

That's simply wrong. Utterly wrong.

They are, first and foremost, shirtmakers.

[quote]The finest two shirtmakers in the world are French and American: Charvet and Hamilton, respectively.

Hamilton? No one would seriously rank them among the top five, or even ten, in the world.

The top three are, in alphabetical order, Borrelli, Charvet and Turnbull & Asser.

This is hilarious, a there's photo montage at the Turnbull & Asser website, of, I suppose the movie stars who have worn their clothes in films.

At the bottom of the montage, under Michael Cain, there's a framed photo of Ben Stiller.

Yes, when I think of classic bespoke clothing, the name Ben Stiller always comes to mind!

I know this is odd. But have you ever noticed that he and his brother Harry always wear the same shoes. Justin Timberlake wear more types of shoes. Of course he probably gets them for free.

by Anonymousreply 7207/25/2013

Some men require their shirtmaker to cut the left cuff larger in order to accommodate a Rolex.

Gianni Agnelli had no such need, as he always wore his wristwatch on top of his shirt, above the cuff. He also didn't button down the collars of his button-down shirts.

Likely either New & Lingwood or Gieves & Hawkes. Etonians often stick with school tailor New & Lingwood and it also happens to be favoured by Tom Wolfe. Gieves has a royal warrant & it's where McQueen was trained.
