Focus On: Bespoke Shirts

  • Posted on

  Tailor's scissors   It's fair to say the shirt is the foundation of a man's wardrobe. If you wear a suit day-to-day, you'll be wearing a shirt. Going somewhere smart? It must be a shirt. Even at the weekend, chances are you'll be wearing a shirt under your jumper. So it really does matter - and getting it right can ensure the rest of your look follows suit. A bespoke shirt is one way to differentiate your day-to-day shirts from the extra-special styles that fit and flatter. The bespoke service here at Oliver Brown is our speciality, and we highly recommend a bespoke shirt if you're also investing in a bespoke suit - after all, good foundations matter! So how does the process work? It all begins with an appointment with our in-house tailor, who'll take key measurements to ensure your shirt is tailored to your individual proportions. Off-the-peg shirts are sized by just the neck measurement, not taking into account that many men's other measurements can vary wildly - despite sharing a similar-sized neck. Next you can select the weight, pattern and colour of the cloth from a wide range of options, giving you a bespoke design that's truly 'you'. The result? A flattering, streamlined shirt that complements your physique and doesn't detract from your suit. Your shirt sleeves will be the perfect length (that's 1cm longer than your jacket's cuff) and you won't have baggy excesses of cloth around your waist. And the best part? It's not as costly as you may imagine. Book an appointment with our tailor today to discover the benefits for yourself! Contact us on [email protected]
