Step up your game with a custom dress shirt
Custom dress shirts are excellent additions to the wardrobe. Mix and match your shirts with different suits to increase your formal options. A tailored dress shirt will spike your level of sophistication in any occasion and be the perfect compliment to your ensemble.
Designing a custom dress shirt starts with a conversation. Speak with our tailor about purpose. Knowing if the shirt is for work or pleasure plays a big role in the suggestions and options the tailor may present. This creates a common understanding when it comes to choosing fabric.
Your fabric selection depends on the style of shirt you want to wear. The initial decision is whether to make a shirt from plain or patterned fabric. The thread count is another option to consider. The most popular selections range between super 180’s and super 200’s.
The design phase in customizing a dress shirt holds endless styling options. The styles to consider include button style, fly front, front buttons, cuff style, contrasting cuffs and sleeves, collar style, collar stitch, French stitch, button collar, French and button collar, stitching style, pleats, pocket style, square pockets, point pockets, monograms, etc.
Once the features have been selected, measurements are taken to begin assembling the components of the dress shirt. It takes two weeks for assembly. At the first fitting, adjustments are noted and the shirt will be altered accordingly. It’s not uncommon for a dress shirt to fit perfectly at the first try on, but it’s customary to have one fitting before the shirt is ready for delivery. The turnaround time for a custom dress shirt is about 4 weeks from design to delivery.
