Mr. Alexander West is on a crusade to single-handedly rid the world of ready-to-wear dress shirts. This affable young banker-cum-custom shirt-maker spends his days doing one-on-one consultations with clients who’ve had it with billowing fabrics, unflattering collars, and inferior construction. Customers can also order online, or send in their favorite shirts, which West will gladly recreate ad infinitum. (West even created a video tutorial showing how to correctly take your own measurements.) Depending on fabric choice — which number into the thousands — shirts range from $100 to $150. A deal, sure, but — if West has his way — a revolution to boot.
Fits like a glove out of the box and unpressed — Instant confidence
We’ve got nothin’ against West’s 2.7 mm-thick mother-of-pearl buttons (standard), but we love our dogs
Spread collar to compliment a long, narrow face
Double stitching — 18 stitches per inch — around the armholes for maximum strength
