5 benefits of having your shirts tailor-made

Having your shirts tailor-made to match with your suit is true luxury. Here are five reasons why we think you should talk to your tailor and find out if bespoke shirts are right for you:

Fit

When you buy an off the peg shirt, whether that is from a tailor or high-street shop, the fit will never be quite right for you.

With a bespoke tailored shirt, it is made to your exact measurements, as well as your choices on how you like to wear your shirts. For example if you like slightly longer sleeves or wider in the shoulders, the exact width on your cuffs to include a larger watch if necessary.

Design

When going for a bespoke shirt you also have choices in design and that’s whether you go for a dinner shirt, a dress shirt and oxford cloth button down. Whether you add 2 pockets or one pocket, the type of pocket, how long your cuffs are and what kind of collar you have as well as length  

You can make it exactly how you like it, with what is functional and comfortable for you.

Fabric

The biggest decision you will have with a bespoke shirt is your choice of fabric.

Cotton, linen, poplin are some of the most popular choices, which all come in different weights, depending on what season you are buying for.

Once you have chosen your fabric you also have the choice of colour.

You could get a selection for the office of whites, blues and pinks, and if you are going for a more casual shirt there are a whole range of other colours you could go for, from bold stand out colours to prints and patterns.

Longevity

With the high-quality fabrics and craftsmanship that it takes to make a bespoke shirt, there is the knowledge that it will last you longer than a cheaper pre-made version.

We believe once you make the change to a bespoke shirt you will never go back.

Relationship with your tailor

Just like when you buy your bespoke suit from your tailor, they get to know your likes and dislikes and how you feel comfortable when wearing your clothes and you would have the same experience when buying a bespoke shirt.

If you changed shape and needed your shirts to be refitted or a new style they will be able to help you straight away.
