Let’s face it, the majority of men are not built like the mannequins in the clothing stores, so here are 4 reasons every man should buy custom shirts. Think about how tough it has to be for a brand to create a size large shirt that is suppose to fit a guy that could range in height from 5’6”- 6’4” without either having to make compromises. Here is an example of a general sizing chart:
- How close or loose you want the fabric to the body
- Sleeve length preferences on a long or short sleeve shirt
- Cuff size to accommodate a watch, if you wear one
- Shirt length based on wearing it tucked or untucked
We can even have multiple shirt profiles for different styles of shirts. For example, a client prefers his dress shirts to be very fitted, but he likes his casual shirts quite a bit more relaxed in the body.
It doesn’t matter how fit you may or may not be, having a custom shirt made based on your measurements makes a huge difference in the visual appearance! “Shirt Fat” becomes a thing of the past!
Why Let Someone Else Dictate The Style You Wear When You Should Be
Reason 3: You Never Have To Go To A Store Again
I really don’t think this needs much more explanation. Once we have your details, it is easy to order more shirts that you know you will love and, best of all, fit perfectly!
Clients can build their wardrobe in the convenience of their office, home, over lunch/coffee, or better yet during happy hour cocktails. In addition, we can work virtually due to Covid-19.
Reason 4: They Are Not As Expensive As You Think
The price of custom clothing has come down dramatically over the years, so it’s not just for the wealthy. When you factor in the cost of an off-the-rack shirt with alterations, you are basically paying for a custom shirt without the quality or convince. Retail stores have a lot of overhead and in order for them to make a profit, they have to buy a lower quality shirt and mark them up quite a bit. So, what you get is a shirt that not only doesn’t fit well, it is not made with high quality fabric and will not last long.
High Quality Shirts Last Longer
Not only are you getting a better quality shirt, you are getting one that was made for just you that won’t wear out as fast. In addition, you are saving the planet by being eco conscious because shirts are only made when you need them.
Get measured and get your first shirt made, you won’t regret it!
