How Custom Shirts Are Made

Gentlemen who take their clothing seriously have their shirts custom made. The reason? A custom shirt is the cornerstone of a man’s wardrobe.

“A shirt should be in proportion to a man’s body as a suit should be,” according to Donald O’Connor, Director of Made to Measure Services. “We use both American and Italian factories to make our custom shirts.”

Ensuring the perfect fit for a custom shirt begins when we take a series of 15 precise measurements. Paying attention to details such as collar style, cuff design, button color, thread type, pockets and monogram allow you to design a shirt that fits your personal habits, body type and style.
