Over the years, everyone from David Bowie to Ronald Reagan has been seen in custom-made shirts from Turnbull & Asser. Excellent craftsmanship and simple lines -- plus bold colors -- distinguish these shirts. The outlet also sells shirts and blouses to women, a clientele that has ranged from Jacqueline Bisset to Candice Bergen. Note that T&A shirts come in only one sleeve length and are then altered to fit, a ritual that takes only a few days and costs £10 ($20). If you want custom shirts created from scratch, the made-to-measure service takes 10 to 12 weeks, and you must order at least a half-dozen. Of course, the monograms are included.
