Why Men Should Buy Custom Dress Shirts
by: Janine Giorgenti
First and foremost, as its name implies, custom dress shirt is made to your measurements, your form and your physique. It is made specifically for you. Once you experience the fit of a custom dress shirt, it is impossible to go back to an off-the-rack shirt that is somehow, never just right.
Even if you wear a 16/34 off-the-rack shirt, selection is always limited. Stores rarely offer the scope of fabrics that you will find from your custom shirt maker, where hundreds of fabrics in different weights, patterns and qualities are abundant in your size.
When was the last time you were able to choose from variety of collar, cuffs, pockets and fronts styles, such as a wide spread collar, angled French cuffs or sport front? Or for that matter, how about something really special, like a black shirt with white collar and white cuffs? All of this is possible with a custom made dress shirt.
What if your neck size is big in proportion to your body, where the rest of the shirt fits like a tent? Or you can never find the correct sleeve length? With a custom made dress shirt, you won't have to put up with this any more...You can enjoy a comfortable well-fitted shirt for the price of a shirt off-the-rack.
Superb workmanship, and fine fabrics are the hallmark of a custom made dress shirt. Imagine collars and cuffs that stay firm and crisp. Want to know the secret? Custom made dress shirts have 20 stitches per inch compared to a commercial dress shirt that only has 12.
Taking all of the above points into consideration, your custom dress shirt is as individual as your own signature. There’s not another like it anywhere!
When you consider all of the advantages, a custom dress shirt is truly the best value of all, a far better than ready-made and in some cases even lower in price than expensive designer shirts.
