The Best Shirts for Men, Money can buy.

Beware of the naked man who offers you his shirt.

This blog on Men's shirts is in no way a sales pitch for shirting the brands; I am about to list. The post is purely from experience and opinions may differ.

The rating system used is based on value, construction, quality, and design. These all have a significant impact on the final product.

Easily a favourite of mine due to ticking all the boxes. The shirts are made in Japan using quality shirting fabrics with the options to choose from a more excellent selection.

There are three collar choices, all versatile and classic, Semi-spread, Cutaway, and Button-down.

Five fitting options are available, Tokyo Slim and Classic which are for short to regular in height men and the New York Slim and Classic for more taller men and the newest addition "Manhatten" fit which is the same as a Toyko Slim with just a little more off the stomach.

The Shirts are easy to wash, iron and don't fall apart. You will be able to find your fit and size from Kamakura.

Prices range from $79USD

Howard's Paris

Howard's shirts are all made in Normandy with Thomas Mason fabrics.

The quality is there in the construction and fabrics; the styles are all more formal and very Parisian.

The finishing details are nice with hand sewn ("Zampa di gallina") MoP buttons. Fit wise there are two options Classic or Slim.

The slim is modern and comfortable, while the classic is more timeless with distinguished side pleats are sewn into the upper back. Both fits come with French cuffs or button cuffs and your choice of six different collars.

The classic Italian and cut-away collars accompanied by singular collars like pin-collar or button-down and also ceremonial styles.

All their shirts are made in Aielli with of skilled artisans and top quality of fabrics for a unique product.

Cordone is well known for their use of patterns and classic Italian style. With several types of collars and cuff styles, you can even opt for a bespoke shirt and create something of your very own.

The best of the best?

100 Hands & Marol Shirts

Both handmade to the highest quality they can individually offer. Marol is made out of Italy and 100 Hands out of India.

They both offer bespoke with fine fabrics and can offer many designs in mind.

What they have in common and why I think they are at the top, is the ability to be machine washed without falling apart.

I guess the only question is who is better? 

In my personal opinion, it would be 100 Hands; as their craftsmanship is on another level compared to the rest of the market. They have a unique skill set taught within families for hundreds of years.
