What is the meaning of the shirt that fits? We usually get the answer: fits on the body and sleeves are long enough. That is a shirt that you can wear, but a good fit has a whole list to it.
Collar – if you want to use it closed, make sure it is not too small, but did you know there is a limit to how loose it should be? One finger should fit into a closed collar. This way, it doesn’t strangle you and it will not bunch up at the same time (especially if you wear a tie).
Sleeves – if you do not have the longest arms, the usual problem is that the sleeves are too long and too wide. Not many complain about that, but the truth is that if you wear a fitted suit – removing that excess fabric means feeling more comfortable.
Body – the most important bit is the shoulders. A lot of men are so used to the stock fit they think it is normal to have your shoulder seam going over the shoulder points. It is not a good look and once you know it you might need to make changes to your whole wardrobe.
Regular fit guys can sometimes get away with ready-made
shirts. However, for someone who has one size on the collar and completely
different on the waist, bespoke shirt is their best option.
We take care of the fit part and you get to do the fun part! Not only do you get the perfect fit, you also get to choose your preferred collar, cuffs and front style.
