Default Casual shirts, bespoke in Dubai?

Hi all,

I'd like to get some casual bespoke shirts made in Dubai.

I usually use Parmar tailors in Bur Dubai for my suits and shirts but they are a little lacking when it comes to the casual department. Their choice is a little thin.

Looking for nice fabrics, and good quality finishes, does anyone have any personal recommendations?

What's the difference between casual and casual?

I think he means Paul Smith type stuff.

I don't know where to get it here either if that's what he means, but I'll stay tuned.

I think you'd need to source your own fabric for sure... for good fitting and tailored detail Royale Fashions in Karama are good, but still a bit formal I guess....
