Believe it or not, a well tailored shirt is one of the hardest items to find off-the rack, it really only fits a handful of people. For the rest of us, it’s a struggle. It’s either the collar is too tight, or the sleeves are too short or the silhouette is just too boxy.
With our custom shirts, you’ll never have to worry about design or fit. Our design team is constantly releasing new collections of custom shirts that are on trend and in season and since it is custom tailored to your body, it will be a perfect fit every time.
We are also not limited to just a classic dress shirt, we cover the spectrum of styles from classic tailored shirts to oversized fits to cropped shirts to tunic styles. It’s never the same and never boring. Browse our NYFW collection for some custom shirt ideas or book and appointment to design your own.
HOW IT WORKS
First time getting fitted for a custom shirt? We make the process as seamless as possible. Here it is step-by-step, and as always, contact us if you have any questions.
FABRIC SELECTION AND DESIGN SESSION
The specifics of a custom shirt are more nuanced than you might think. You’ll need to make decisions on what type of collar you would like, whether you’d like a french cuffs or single button barrel as well as what kind of stitching and buttons you would like. The first step is always to choose your fabric from our collection of premium custom shirt fabrics from Thomas Mason, Albini and Loro Piana and then go from there. If you are ever stuck or unsure, our designers are there to guide you the entire way and ensure you are making the right choices.
We collect 35+ measurements that are a mix of your physical dimensions, the desired dimensions of your garment, as well as posture and fit analysis. For our virtual clients, we will capture your measurement via our 3D measurement app.
Approximately 8-10 weeks later, you will be back in our studios to try on your custom shirt for the first time. Our in-house master tailor and your designer will go over the fit and determine what alterations are needed if there are any. Sometimes, alterations are not needed and you can take your custom shirt home with you. If alterations are needed, it will be complete in 2-3 week.
For our virtual clients, we will ship your custom shirt to you and we will access the fit with you via Zoom. A return label is always included for you to send the garments back to us for alterations.
We also offer rush services where we can turn around custom suits and clothings in 4 weeks and alterations in 2 days.
FINAL TRY ON
Usually, only one round of alterations is needed and the final try is on is just a fit check. If additional alterations are needed, we will of course take care of it.
