Xenia Hejda - Bespoke Shirtmaker

At the same time as I met Salvatore and studied his books, I was also introduced to Xenia Hejda, who was making my friend's shirts at the same time. Xenia does full bespoke shirt making - that is, she does not use a block, each component is hand cut, with two to three fittings to get the cut right. She uses french seems on the side and can do any detail you like. Her prices are NOT CHEAP though. So buyer beware, unless you have the money you won't get the honey.

Prices start from $325 a shirt. If you take her your own fabric she can do a shirt at $250.00. I think this price is too high but I am told her workmanship shows itself in the final product.
