What makes a QUALITY shirt

When purchasing a bespoke men’s tailored shirt, there are two aspects that you must take into consideration - fabric and fit.
For fabric you are looking for a balance between hand feel, drape and breathability. Hand-feel: is how soft it feels to your hand and body. Drape: is dependent on weight and texture. A good fabric is light yet not see through. While you do want the shirt to be breathable, you want to make sure is carries the charismatic texture without creasing easily or getting wrinkles.
Fit is dependent on how the shirt is cut. People don’t have a single uniform body shape so readymade shirts generally don’t work well for most. This is where bespoke is the most necessary, where the shirt pattern is cut perfectly to your measurements and preferences.

How to select a custom shirt

For those new to custom men’s tailored shirts and premium wear, it can be complicated to determine what shirt is meant for you.

First, you must decide what the shirt is for: work, casual, party, or an event?

If it’s for work, do you work in a conservative environment? Can you dress bold? For conservative work environments we suggest sticking to white and blue colours. Whether it be checked, pinstriped, plain or dobby that’s up to you. For Bold – we have a full selection of bold/powerful shirting colours and patterns.

Darker shirting is suitable for a night out/parties, however digital prints work very well too and help you stand out among the crowd. If you are attending an event -Do you plan on wearing it with a jacket, suit or without? If you plan on wearing it with a patterned suit, select a shirt that is plain or a less busy pattern.

What climate are you wearing it in? Generally speaking, lighter weights and linen are ideal for warmer climates.
